    Racism is Raising its Ugly Head all over Israel – an Open Racism, Shameless and Indeed Proud of itself.

    The Darkness to Expel

    It is easy to despair before the filthy wave of racism that is engulfing us.

    The remedy for this despair: the growing number of young people, sons and daughters of the new Israeli generation, who are joining the fight against racism and occupation.

    This week, several hundred of them gathered in a hall in Tel Aviv (belonging, ironically, to the Zionist Federation of America) to launch a book published by the group Breaking the Silence.

    In the hall there were some veterans of the peace camp, but the great majority of those present were youngsters in their twenties, male and female, who have completed their military service.

    The Occupation of the Territories is a book of 344 pages, consisting of almost 200 testimonies by soldiers about the daily and nightly life of the occupation. The soldiers supplied the eyewitness accounts, and the organization, which is composed of ex-soldiers, verified, compared, and sifted them. In the end, 183 of some 700 testimonies were selected for publication.

    Not even one of these testimonies was denied by the army spokesman, who generally hastens to contradict honest accounts of what is happening in the occupied territories. Since the editors of the book have themselves served as soldiers in these places, it was easy for them to distinguish between truth and falsehood.

    The book makes very depressing reading, and not because it details gruesome atrocities. On the contrary, the editors made it a point not to include incidents of exceptional brutality committed by sadists, which can be found in every army unit in Israel and throughout the world. Rather, they wanted to throw light on the gray routine of the occupation.

    Sad but true, and not surprising coming from the ususal suspects who continue to post demonizations of Israel not in the cause of peace, but as a rationalization and justification to continue with the war to destroy Israel.

    Contrast with their silence in topics such as these:

    Yalla, Peace!

    I, frankly, am thoroughly sick of the rampant anti-Israel threads that have NO RELATION WHATSOEVER to the theme of the site, which is "Gay Fitness Health & Life. I am as sick of these threads as I am sick of the horrifying and racist anti-Muslim threads that show up so frequently.

    I think the lot of you on this thread need to grow up and have a serious think about why you bother to keep posting this bile. For those few who care a fig about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict --- and I strongly suspect the majority would rather both sides nuked each other at this point, so tedious is the whining of each side --- I haven't seen a post in *ages* that carries even an iota of a chance of persuading a third party of your point. All you're doing is slinging mud.

    Mature and thoughtful voices in this debate, on both sides, try to resolve the conflict by opening bridges for communication, collaboration, opposing the excesses of the Israeli and Palestinian leaderships, and opposing the violence perpetrated by both sides. Perhaps you can all try something more constructive.

    ROTFL; ianct thinks that by pouring more spam propaganda slogans he makes things "better".
    (Note how missing is the post-1967 map, thus creating a misleading trend, not to mention the lack of a Camp David / Taba peace map.)


    TigerTim saidMature and thoughtful voices in this debate, on both sides, try to resolve the conflict by opening bridges for communication....

    Yet the very same people who bring you these incessant "rampant anti-Israel threads" fall silent exactly there:

    Yalla, Peace!

    In search of a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict: UNSCR 242, Oslo and Camp David/Taba
    (Or: I support the Clinton COMPROMISE parameters. Do you?!)

    Furthermore, in multiple topics we've seen that the anti-Israel spam propagandists don't stand on any principles (despite the selective lip service) but are motivated by their hate. Thus they don't hesitate to lie-for-the-cause. Not to make things better for the Palestinian Arabs (whom they sacrifice for the cause) and not in the cause of peace, but to the contrary, to singularly demonize Israel in order to rationalize and justify their perpetual war against it.

    They are hateful war-mongers.

    Same goes for you. Between you and tokugawa it more than makes up for caesarea4's antithesis. No need to burn in hell. Life in Earth is bad enough with you in it.

    I would very much like BOTH SIDES to desist from posting threads from EITHER side, unless they meet the criterion of advancing mutual understanding and peace.

    Otherwise where does the cycle end? And why should the rest of not want you to burn in hell too?
