Opinions on Israel?
I am disgustingly pro-Palestine with no qualms about it. Remembering two years ago when I was 14, it sickens me how I bought the Zionist propaganda so easily.

So, in the footsteps of a "quiz" that has been created some years ago on Israel, I've made a similar one. See if your answers are the same as mine!

What is one of the major reasons for terrorism's existence in such concentration?

Arrogant Zionism.

What Jewish body refused to save millions in the Holocaust to
promote their own political interests?

Arrogant Zionists.

What current Head of State in Israel proclaimed that he would kill every Palestinian child, BURN THEM, if he could, and encouraged his soldiers to both kill and rape Arab women because "they are slaves to the Jews"?

Ariel Sharon.

What did Theodor Herzl, founder of Zionism, call "the best friend" of the Jews in terms of political, not spiritual, agenda?


What nation's policies killed approximately 200,000 Palestinian
civilians, 24% killed being under 18, 35% injured being under 18?


<p>What nation carried out terrorism against America to promote their interests with an attack on an American ship in the 1970's and an American base in Egypt in the 1950's, the latter under the name of 'Operation Suzzanah'?


Whose nation's first Prime Minster promised the world that no one
people in the area will dominate the other?


What class of political people said "one million Arabs are not worth a single Jewish fingernail"?


What current Israeli head of state is wanted in Belgium for war
crimes, particularly, the killing and injuring of 29,500 Lebanese and Palestinian civilians, 40% of which were women and children, mutilated and raped?

Ariel Sharon.

What former Israeli Prime Minister belonged to a terrorist
organization called "Lehi", that published his article titled "Terror," in which he advocated the use of terrorism and intimidation of any form for the furthering of Zionist agenda, terrorism against civilians, women and children alike?

Yitzhak Shamir

What current Israeli Prime Minister proclaimed that Israel should
not fear America's policy towards his nation, because the Zionists run America and its foreign policy, and "the Americans know it"?

Ariel Sharon

1. It's fine that you're pro-Palestinian, but some of us are not.
Hopefully you're OK with that.

2. try the Israel/Palstine forum
it's under Foreign Affairs.

They'll tear you a new one.

One small correction: the USS Liberty was attacked in the 60's.

3. Welcome to the boards....
unfortunately, your "tone" will severely hamper your stay here at
DU. Might want to head on over to the I/P sub-section but let me
warn you: your blood pressure will rise.

BTW, you make very valid points, but its not "progressive" to some
on these boards. You'll understand it better as you read some of
these posts...

4. The Jewish people and Israelis are good people
Like the Muslims and Palestinians, there is only a minority of Jewish people who wish to cause harm to others. There is one that should be on there that isn't and that is Meir Kahane. He was in my opinion the Jewish bin Laden. He said the Jewish people were superior to every other race and that Jewish people who did not support Israel should be killed. If he had the resources and sometimes he did, you might have been able to expect terrorist actions from him. The JDL, Kach, and Kahane Chai have killed scores of people in the last decade. I think Baruch Goldstein was also a member of the JDL. Many Kach and Kahane Chai members are also known as the Settlers(you know the Settlements) which by the way are illegal under Article 49 of the IV Geneva Convention. But a lot of Israelis are against Settlements and would like to see Israel withdraw from the Palestinian territories.

5. Locking
Brooklyn-Mecca, due to the contentious nature of the Isreal/Palestine issue we have a separate forum for discussing the issues under Foreign Affairs/National Security. You may discuss the issue there, following the guidelines set up in that forum.
