36. But those rockets are the responsibility of Hamas and Hamas did little to stop/prosecute...
Edited on Sat May-07-11 11:53 AM by shira
....the people who launched those rockets.

With that reasoning, armed groups not associated with the Israeli government could launch into Gaza and that wouldn't violate any truce or ceasefire either. And Israel could do very little, if anything, to stop them and somehow still claim it's not Israel's fault. And you'd buy that? Are you serious?

I didn't accuse you of bigotry. Read carefully as Red Cross policy was bigoted WRT Israel's Magen David Adom service for the longest time. As to hunger and starvation claims, I just posted a few links here about that lie...

Why do you think so many lied about that? How were they allowed to get away with it for so long?

        - Uhh, Iran subsidizes Hezbollah and Hamas and has used them to attack Israel  shira   May-06-11 08:05 PM   #24 
           - Right, when was the last time Hamas or Hezbollah invaded someone? Oh wait...  JonScholar   May-06-11 09:23 PM   #30

     - Wow - pretty much everything he is saying here is incorrect  oberliner   May-06-11 10:02 AM   #13 
        - Let's see, your self selected sources or Chomsky's collective sources..hmm.  Jefferson23   May-06-11 10:19 AM   #14 
        - He provided no sources  oberliner   May-06-11 12:05 PM   #16 
           - Yea, Chomsky is known to not verify legitimate sources before he draws a conclusion....sure thing.  Jefferson23   May-06-11 03:03 PM   #17

                          - Think Chomsky's still a credible source with his truther views? n/t  shira   May-08-11 01:56 PM   #45 
                             - Noam Chomsky isn't a truther. This is a pathetic attempt at slander.  JonScholar   May-08-11 03:51 PM   #46 
                                - Yep, that's right. Chomsky did call OBL an unarmed "victim". What do you think of that?  shira   May-08-11 04:49 PM   #47 
        - The narrative is truth-to-power. Facts don't matter.  shira   May-06-11 11:05 AM   #15 
        - Actually, chomsky was perfectly correct.  JonScholar   May-06-11 03:22 PM   #19

           - Are you intentionally ignoring the facts?  JonScholar   May-06-11 05:56 PM   #21 
              - Again, it wasn't a ceasefire, it was a calm or lull. Do you know the difference?  shira   May-06-11 08:02 PM   #23 
                 - Ceasefire. As in Hamas CEASED FIRING rockets and Israel CEASED FIRING mortars and bombs.  JonScholar   May-06-11 09:21 PM   #29 
                    - But rockets didn't cease being fired from Gaza before Nov 4, so there goes your "ceasefire".  shira   May-07-11 05:26 AM   #31 
                       - Except even the Israeli government admits that none of those rockets were launched by Hamas  JonScholar   May-07-11 11:08 AM   #34

              - I'd say the same thing about ynet and the rest of the Israeli press  JonScholar   May-06-11 08:45 PM   #27 
                 - Including Ha'aretz?  oberliner   May-07-11 07:09 PM   #38 
                    - I don't think they're lying  JonScholar   May-08-11 02:09 AM   #39 
  - That is predictable  whosinpower   May-05-11 12:02 PM   #8 
  - Next!  no_hypocrisy   May-05-11 12:07 PM   #9 
  - Bibi is an idiot.  Scurrilous   May-05-11 12:21 PM   #10

              - More information about the Supreme Leader for those who may be ignorant  oberliner   May-09-11 04:24 PM   #56 
                 - Ah, this is an educational piece you posted for the ignorant and  Jefferson23   May-09-11 04:43 PM   #57 
                    - Yes - lots of people are not very well-versed in how things work in Iran  oberliner   May-09-11 04:48 PM   #58 
                       - So you're not sure about whether Khamenei poses the greatest threat world wide.  Jefferson23   May-09-11 05:01 PM   #59 
                          - I don't think it can be quantified that way  oberliner   May-10-11 08:19 AM   #60 
                             - It was Netanyahu who framed it as such, I was responding to  Jefferson23   May-10-11 08:24 AM   #61 
                                - Some parts of what he said can be supported, other parts not so much  oberliner   May-10-11 09:52 AM   #62 
                                   - The title reflects his direct claim and comes without support.  Jefferson23   May-10-11 10:11 AM   #63
