Meanwhile, this will be interpreted as the cause of Palestinian militancy, rather than the result.
Building Jewish only settlements in Arab neighborhoods while restricting non-Jews from buying homes in Jewish neighborhoods are the result of which militancy in Jerusalem?
Is it the militancy that replaced the populations of Arabs with Jews only?
I suppose you also had the same opinions of segregated black communities as a result of criminal black tendencies?
Is it surprising that Israel is the only country in the world where the majority population supports torture?
SAM, that same condition occurs in almost every nation of the world, except perhaps the most affluent western nation. Look at India, SAM, it's full of just such drastic transitions from affluent to poor to poverty-stricken. Look at Brazil, ...same things, drastic transitions from wealth to poverty. Ditto for Mexico. Do you point out those areas as "segregation and ethnic cleansing as a democratic policy"? Why not?
But ya' know something, SAM, ....? None of those other nations have resorted to terrorism and suicide attacks. Why not? Is that just a Muslim thing? Or perhaps just an Arab thing?
In which democratic country is this state policy?
None ...not even in Israel. If you think it's Israel's state policy, then please provide the necessary documentation that shows that it was enacted by the democratic Israeli government.
Sure. The same municipal corporation that supports building Jewish Only settlements in Arab Jerusalem also supports keeping ethnically "pure" Jewish only neighborhoods that turn away Palestinians from buying homes there. This is policy that has never been turned away in any court in Israel. The submissions to the court by Palestinians are rejected. Evidence that over 90% of building permits requested by Palestinians are turned down are not considered as evidence of segregationism. Neither is the replacement of populations seen from the demographics. All petitions made by human rights organizations to the court are rejected. In any case, when the court does decide that the IDF for example is building illegally in Bilin, there is no move to stop the building and no enforcement of the courts directive. Instead, illegal building is permitted to continue and Americans like Tristan Anderson are shot in the face with gas grenades if they protest. And still, there is no action against the illegal settlement activity [which has been ruled as illegal also by the international court]
Sorry, SAM, you didn't document it properly. So I have to assume that it's not "governmental policy". I'm guessing that it's more like personal likes and dislikes, who people want to do business with, etc. NOT government policy.
Its government policy when the law does nothing to stop it and when the government signs off on infrastructure for illegal settlements.
Show evidence, SAM, not unsubstantiated accusations and bullshit.
SAM, the same things are happening in India and Mexico, as well as most other nations of the world. And yet in those nations, as well as in Israel, it's NOT government policy!! Get it through your thick, prejudicial skull.
The evidence is the current state of Palestine. Unless you think Israel has no legal system
Not much to say, when you post only links and no real opinion and tell everyone else to discuss. If people wanted current events fed to em there's cnn.com.
Then why post in the thread? And do you need an opinion to have an opinion?
Maybe the illegal settlements will end when the illegal terrorism ends.
Maybe. You think the Jews will ever realise that people have a right to live on their land even if they are not Jews?
And that Jews have no automatic right to live in Palestine because they are Jews?
They've killed Jesus, for crying out loud. What can be expected of them?!
EDIT: Seriously, there is no such thing as 'democracy', even though many people talk about it with great zeal. 'Democracy' is mostly just a power word, a kind of throwing others sand in the eyes.
Palestinians should just breed them out one new baby at a time.
Or just make Nut and Yahoo the international laughing stock.
Even Abbas has miraculously grown a pair:
The Rabbinical Republic of Yhwh
The Hebrew Fundamentalist State
The Holocaust State of Hebrews
The Perpetual State of Being A Victim.
