They were able to avoid a vote for Palestinian membership, so their influence is bigger than you think.

No it doesn't the US has repeatedly shown time and again it has sided with Israel and it is seen as the US's fault solely because the US solely is vetoing anything Israel does not want therefore if the US wishes to take part in negotiations it should do so only as a supporter of Israel and stop pretending it is impartial.
US arms embargo against Israel in 1948
In the 1956 Suez war the US forced Israel to give back conquered territory.
In 1981 the US suspended a strategic cooperation agreement because of the annexation of the Golan Heights.
The U.S. (Bush) imposed an arms embargo on spare parts for helicopters

The reason why the US vetoes a lot of UN resolutions is not because they side with Israel but because of the so called Negroponte Doctrine :

John Negroponte, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, stated (during a closed meeting of the UN Security Council) that the United States will oppose Security Council resolutions concerning the Israeli–Palestinian conflict that condemn Israel without also condemning terrorist groups. This became known as the Negroponte Doctrine, and has been viewed by officials in the United States as a counterweight to the frequent resolutions denouncing Israel which are passed by the UN General Assembly.

Quote:
No they shouldn't push Israel to negotiations they should be dropped from the middle east peace process altogether and any agreement should be negotiated with and ratified by the UN general assembly.
The US should push Israel, the Arabs should push the Palestinians and the UK, France, Arabs and UN should finance the return of the refugees to Palestine.

I disagree. Every problem has at least two sides. We know the Israeli one, if you want to know the Palestinian one look at their charters (PO, Hamas).

What happens to the oppressors I really don't care. personally I hope that they get what they deserve, but I doubt that the civilised world would allow the Palestinians to do to the Israelis what they have done to the Palis, and as for their leaders there is no way, as hanging is now frowned upon.
What country? Who was president, king or prime minister? What kind of government did they have? Democratic? Authoritarian? Islamic? Show me.
PS - I have put the words "in their own country" in his quote in bold.

Wasn't part of "their country" (your words not mine) annexed by Jordan (West Bank) and Egypt (Gaza) for a while? Why didn't they revolted against that?

Congratulations 20 years ago I was very pro-Israel, a mistreated people returning to their homeland and defending it against overwhelming odds, it was the stirring story of triumph against evil of our time and then one day when I was about 15 or 16 I got into a discussion with my father about just that because I could not understand his disdain for Israel and it ended with him just telling me to stop listening to the "official" story and go find my own answers.

So here we are 20+ years later I have looked for myself and the longer I looked the more I found myself agreeing with his views at which point I ran into Spike on these forums and I though damn I am not pro-Israel but he is downright extreme in his views until I read your and RayManKiller3 views on this issue and the more I read them the more I found myself moving fully into Spikes camp, well done.

There are far more uses of the word "country" than you are aware of. Ask any English speaking member. Other than that, "ownership" of land (or "country") needs no "Government" or leader. We've been through all this before, possibly several times. (As usual)

I too was once Pro-Israel for exactly the same reasons as yourself and my somewhat "extreme" views are something that have only developed over time, after I repeatedly found that when dealing with Zionists and their lunatic supporters, "if you gave them an inch, they will take a mile",... and not only that, they will also steal the tape measure and the box that it came in.

In short, you really can't have a "reasonable" discussion with Zionists, as it seems that they, like the very worst of their fundamentalist Muslim cousins, are brainwashed from birth. In the case of the Zionists, with a rabid dogma of racial superiority, hatred and self pity.

And don't forget to look at the reasons why the Palestinians settled for ratbag political leadership like Hamas, who were only elected for one reason,.... They would resist Israel. It took 20 years of Israeli terror, before the Palestinians resorted to this extreme measure, as it was their only choice, whereas Zionist leaders had been openly speaking of the removal of the Palestinian people from their own country from Israel's earliest days and before. The evidence of which is there for all to see to this day,... and getting worse by the day.

"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population."

- David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

One thing I think you can be sure of, is that, if there were no Israeli terror visited upon the Palestinian people, the world would never have ever seen political groups like Hamas, or for that matter Al Qaeda, or a dozen other fundamentalist Muslim terror organisations.

I don't care if you were pro-Israel or anti-Israel. The only reason I am here is because Seno seems to want to blame Israel for everything possible (which you are somewhat doing as well; even claiming U.S do not want peace there).

U.S wants peace in the Mid-East; it is after all in its interest (oil being there). It gains nothing by war in that area.

I didn't even know of the Negroponte Doctrine until VDKMS stated it. I will see if this is really the reason U.S turns down U.N resolutions against Israel. I do agree that Israel should not be protected as a saint, but I will not stand here and let Palestine be protected while everyone attacks Israel.

You attack Israel and I will attack Palestine; I don't even see what you disagree with when it comes to VDKMS's and my statements to make you feel Seno is more correct on this. After all, we are only here because Seno has the urge to attack Israel (even justifying terrorism, which is immoral). There is too much contradiction in his statements. He ignores everything Palestine does that gets the response of Israel, but attacks anything Israel does that gets the response of Palestine.

I understand there are laws, but remember, there are two sides of the fence. This issue has not been resolved as far as I know. Many legal scholars been debating this topic for years with no results leaning more on either side.

As I constantly say and I will state it one more time; I am here solely because I do not like the biased attacking of Israel and belief that Palestine is a saint in these threads.


Here are some points I stated:

Quotes from those who are against their own people do not mean that their people are wrong. There are sympathizers on each side (so saying holocaust survivors are against Israel means nothing without an undisputable legal reason). I also find it funny how Seno mentions this, but calls the Palestinians who side with Israel as despicable.

A 1 state solution will not work for either side. It has potential to bring about a crisis (and when the crisis occurs, who is going to stop it?)

Veto I agreed should be removed as it gives too much power to the permanent SC members, but I do not think it should be removed just yet. If they are going to remove the veto, there should be other reforms as well (such as requiring those who vote on humanitary issues should be required to take part in that issue they voted for). This will counter any thoughts of "I will vote for protecting Iraq from Iran, but won't send troops or supplies" type of stuff.

If someone sells their land, its their choice regardless of the purpose of the buyer. This is legal, though unethical. (give me a law that forbids this. )

We must not correct wrongs by doing something wrong (removal of Israel)

Israel should not be required to take back the Palestinian refugees.

Israel should stop settlement building past the 1967 borders and if they continue, it must be acknowledged that it will be given back to Palestine once they have their state (the Palestine state).

If you condemn Israel for their wrong doings, you must also condemn Palestine for their wrong doings (if any) as well

Morality is subjective and unless majority agrees to what is moral or immoral, one should refrain from using it against another person.


From everything I know for the situations of the Mid-East, I find myself siding with Israel more than Palestine, but I do disagree on many things Israel have done or is doing. I stated before that just because someone supports a country do not mean it supports all of its actions.

U.S have quite a lot of influence still Monty so your statement of "little influence left in the world" is pushing it

I don't know Monty, you just accused Israel of not wanting peace yet you agree a two state solution is the only way. If Palestine is the one that really do not want peace and you still defend them, is this not contradictory?

You sounded quite silly when you said this, as we can say the same for you when it comes to your "reasonable" discussion. I believe you are the one that resorted to insults and flame before any of us here.... If you call those statements "reasonable" then I don't want to know what is unreasonable to you.

I think you are the one that really should be ignored rather than anyone else here... With this statement you sound like a conspiracy nut in the U.S lol. Whatever though, that is your belief, I will not contest it.

The fact you shown that Palestine chose Hamas simply because they "will resist Israel" do not help in the fact that many believe Palestinians to be ignorant... This means they chose Hamas without thinking what Hamas was doing (terrorism), and the consequences...

I think it was too late to stop Israel from becoming a state once the U.N decided it so. Hamas was created in 1982, it was already too late to remove Israel by then (which I support Israel's existence anyways as legal).

You're quick to whine about your damaged ego, but don't have a second's thought for a nation of people who have been reduced to living in fear like hunted animals, disenfranchised, beaten, starved and murdered for over 100 years.

That is why I don't care what you "think",... you have the logic and understanding, of a pot plant.

It is this statement that always amuses me it is the same thing as when I hear "I don't want to cause trouble... but" and "I don't want to appear racist... but" there is an old saying that says "nothing said before the but means anything"

As for your reading of my quote well that is symbolic of the argument you have posted, you have taken fragments and twisted them to justify your argument where most people would read it as "diminishing power" you have read it as "no power".

How can it be contradictory, if I could see a way to remove Israel from the map without creating a humanitarian nightmare of epic proportions I would push the 1 state solution however I can not see a way to do this therefore I push the 2 state solution.

Alright I think I get your meaning here,

Let's kill all Israelis, wipe them out and burn every document and piece of the old Testement mentioning them that no one will every remeber even their truimphs or tradegies....

Because what country will except 6,000,000 refugees? How many extremist groups out for blood for your new one State solution will be created?

How many people who sound just like you, but who have copy and pasted Palestine as the "evil brainwashing war pig criminals" and launch rockets over their fence now? Defeating the purpose of Israel's violence by simply creating a new extremsit hate circle in the region to plague any new Palestinian state?

How effective a genocide are we going to need to accomplish this?...

This is why I push what I have mentioned on ideas for a two state agenda so adamantly...

Both parties can't have something all to themselves so aparently we still abide by 12th century justice and the only logical next step is to simpley murder the other side....because that WORKS.
