no I'm not happy about anything going on over there....Benshik wrote:come on, someone concerned with facts and interested to coldly discuss a situation doesn't start a thread by saying "israel sucks"b0unce wrote:.i'm only concerned with facts.
actually, a lot of israelis disaprove their government and a lot of israelis are impoverished. these guys are having a hard time: tourists are scared to go, a lot of unemployment, a lot of desillusion among the youth, but i guess you are happy about that right?
your hate will not make things better.
really, this thread just sprang from the 'letter from iran to usa president thread'
I admit I reduced it to 'israel sucks.' .... but the real purpose was the anti-semetic anagrams and how they are as meaningful as the word anti-semetic. that is, to criticise the state of israel for their policies or the impunity with which the IDF act is often met with accusations of anti-semetism, which I was accused of in the iranian thread....so being an angry little camper , I thought i'd do something puerile like saying israel sucks, and giving the anagram list. I see now that action was only in context for a few brief moments, and now a day later its out of context and a thread all of its own....
anyways, If only I could have left the 'gag' at that....but then you know, it just snowballed.
I suppose I will keep my political thoughts for newspaper forums or real people - eye to eye - and try and stay more on topic in the future, apologies to all who had to endure my short temper with regard this topic over these past few pages
