64. You sound as if you are projecting here.
Who is the rape victim in this comparison you are making?

Do you really think that Palestine is using force to oppress the Israeli people?

A much better analogy would be to compare the Palestinians to the rape victim, and to argue that they should just lie back and take it or suffer more violent force being used against them.

The Palestinian people ARE being oppressed, aren't they? Can you at least agree about this fact? They are ones who are living under blockade. Right? Israel is the rapist here, right? They are the ones that are unilaterally controlling the relationship. Right? The Palestinian people are the ones who live their lives powerless against the Israelis. Right?

Don't you have it exactly backwards?
