    General news thread

    Have to concede, I didn't think that idea through very well at all. It's just such a miserable bloody mess, it depresses me, I remember my dad trying to explain it to me in 1973, I was really worried for Israel at the time. Over the years the situation changed and I've found my sympathies tilting toward the Palestinian cause, backing the underdog I guess. A friend then became actively involved in the Palestinian cause and found herself coming under Israeli fire, which didn't do much for my opinion of the IDF. As for how England might react under similar circumstances.....Who knows? But I'm pretty confident such issues will be resolved around a table, rather than with live fire. Maybe Israel should give that option another try, but with the understanding that they will actually need to make some tangible concessions? Meanwhile the horror continues: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/palestinian-on-fire-gaza-protests-street-israel-living-conditions-fathi-harb-sheikh-radwan-a8361221.html?amp

    European Union common defense thread

    What you are proposing there sounds an awful lot like the end of NATO.

    Easy.....How about not shooting until they actually breach the fence, and closing a few illegal settlements as an act of good will? Sending some of your world class medical personnel in to fix the damage you've done would be a bloody good idea too. Ending the illegal siege of Gaza couldn't hurt either. The list of things that Israel could do is endless.....But murder is easier, or so it seems.

    That would be the point where my sympathies for the Palestinian cause would evaporate.....But right now, Israel needs to show more restraint, maybe make some concessions, you know, for the sake of peace and all that.

    If this shit was black & white simple, it would have been sorted long ago.....Neither side can claim complete innocence in this issue. External parties supporting one side or the other exclusively, while applying obvious double standards, can never help of course. PS - & then there are the bible-bashers to consider too. PPS - @Mighty_Zuk This is not personal or even an attack on Israel, I'd say just the same if this were my government's policies at work rather than yours (this should be pretty bloody obvious based on my posts here to date).
  8. Sounds a lot like the way we've been spoken about since the Brexit vote.

    Syrian conflict.

    Well I wouldn't say we are diametrically opposed in views, but my support for Israel is pretty limited these days.....I have very good reasons for this.

    Syrian conflict.

    But was it a legal fire? Cheers for the clarification.

    Pretty sure all the arguments were factual, at least until he started spouting Israeli nationalist gobshite and trying to pass it off as something real, or meaningful.

    Yourself likewise, when you refrain from acting like a jingoistic meathead.
