    "Cry me a river. I asked you for evidence of Israeli soldiers specifically killing civilians with the sole purpose of killing as many as possible. So far you haven't been able to provide me with any, which only proves my point even more."

    O dear God/Allah/Yahweh you are driving me crazy. Like i said, the only right sources for palestinian civilian dead will be sources that were there on the ground, like Arab newspapers. I'm too lazy to find them, but hmh01 isnt. And the Israeli gov/IDF will never say they target civilians, they are a GOVERNEMTN/OFFICIAL ARMY WITH A REPUTATION TO MAINTAIN IN INTERNATIONAL EYES. PALESTINIANS DONT CARE ANY MORE, THEY JUST WANT WHAT IS RIGHTLY THERES.

    "There is NO excuse to kill civilians, anywhere, any time."
    omg grow up and smell the gunpowder, of course theres no excuse, but it will happen, and when a israeli soldier is in a palestinian town and kills a civilian, (out of anger/nervousenss etc) he wont go tell his highest officer that he did. And if a palestinian finds the body and tries telling the newspapesr, who are hte newspapers gonna believe? a palestinian in rags or a high ranking official of israel? my bets are on the guy from israel.

    guguru,

    The average Israeli has nothing to do with what an Israeli soldier does in Gaza. Just like the average Muslim had nothing to do with 9/11.

    So why should either be killed?

    Is it obvious, you choose to read what you want and discard what you want. In this tactic of yours of beating around the bush. You claim solidarity with the actions of the Israeli government who is up against a group of unarmed people with no army or stable government with an economy that is unimaginable while receiving at least $7 Billion dollars in aid from their closest friend (The US). You perceive any civilian who carries an AK 47 to be a terrorist. You perceive a child who throws stones at a IDF soldier to be a terrorist. You are happy when you hear of an arrest of a Palestinian on accounts of charges that are not presented to you. You are pleased when villages and houses are demolished and children are left on the street.

    You choose what to read and how to read it. You choose what facts to list and what facts to ignore. Typical...

    Get it together and your chances of defending your own political philosophies are going down the drain. The predecesors upon which Israel was founded clearly outlined their goals and strategies in their speeches. Yet you chose to read one or few and claim their speeches were of the past.

    The United States of America still lives up to what the country was founded upon. Do you think Israel is any different?

    "The only solution is Eretz Israel, or at least Western Eretz Israel (all the land west of Jordan River), without Arabs. There is no room compromise on this point ... We must not leave a single village, not a single tribe." Joseph Weitz, Director of the Jewish National Fund, the Zionist agency charged with acquiring Palestinian land, Circa 194. Machover Israca, January 5, 1973 p.2.

    "guguru, were you one of the people jumping up and down in delight on 9/11?"

    no, thats pretty immature to say. i was horrified at the event and at the fact the people who follow my religion will twist it into a reason to kill 4000 innocent people. And by the way, we're talking about israel/palestine, which is a completely differnet situation from 9/11.

    "If I went out an killed an arab because of 9/11 would you be happy for me?"

    If a relative of yours was killed and you decided to kill an arab because of this, i wouldnt really "jump for joy" but i would understand the reason of why you did it.

    "The average Israeli has nothing to do with what an Israeli soldier does in Gaza. Just like the average Muslim had nothing to do with 9/11."

    Yes, the average Israeli supports what an israelli soldier does and once turend 18 would probalby go into the reserves. Not even .1% of the worlds Muslim population follows the extremist ideals the terrorists do. I do not support them, do you see that im calling them terrorists. They contort Islam for thier own means and are brainwashed by the mullahs in 3rd world countries where they have nothign else to do.

    and i bet now you are gonna say that i enjoy watching israeli citizens die.

    no

    but i think they should have realized that what they are doing is wrong, and the palestinians are mad enough that they dont care what israeli they hurt as long as its an israeli

    [qoute]If a relative of yours was killed and you decided to kill an arab because of this, i wouldnt really "jump for joy" but i would understand the reason of why you did it. [/qoute]

    Well that is a problem. Why should an innocent Arab be killed who had nothing to do with 9/11?

    Similarly, why should an innocent Jew be killed who had nothing to do with the killing of Palestinians?

    This cycle will go nowhere. I admit my comments were immature and out of line, but they serve the purpose of only giving you an example that the world is not all black/white. No innocents should ever be killed, whether they are Palestinian or Israeli. I condemn it when Israel kills civilians, I just don't understand why you can't condemn it when Palestinians kill civilians?

    What has the average Israeli child done wrong other than be born in Israel? They are wrong just for being born Israeli? That is a pretty narrow viewpoint...No one deserves to die just for being born.

    they dont really say their targets are jews, their targets are israelis. im tryin to debate this without resorting to the religion of either side.

    first off, when you are debating try not to directly say your comments are immature because that really really hurts/kills parts of ur debate. second, now youre backing off ur original stance and beign a humanitarian. of course palestinians kill civilians. duh. but you hafta see what choices they have and why they are doing it.
    i alrady said the crimes against isrealis citiznes were "sad and terrible"

    Well, you can be sure that they fully support the Israeli side and most will join the IDF. so should palestinians be bombed and tortured for having been born palestinian??

    I think the conclusion is that innocents unfortunately die in war, but that cannot be stopped.
  • Cuse0507Cuse0507 Registered User Posts: 4,519 Senior Member
    Palestinians can choose not to kill civilians. If they can bomb a shopping mall, they can bomb a military checkpoint instead. They can use their explosives against the IDF, not against Pizza Huts.

    Regardless, I'm going to bed. I guess this will continue on tomorrow...?

    "I think the conclusion is that innocents unfortunately die in war, but that cannot be stopped."

    Innocents die in war, but they should not be targeted by either side. Surely you can agree with this?

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE. agian, play paintball

    you will see first hand how hard it is to face a significantly stronger opponent with tanks and fighter jets.


    yeah, im gonna go now, we'll continue tomorrow. this debate is quite interesting.

    look, this is my last comment. please reply tomorrow.

    the palestinians want thier land back. they want all the israelis off. this includes civilians. so they will hurt civilians. israelis go on bombing rampages and they sure as he** know that palesitinan civilians will be killed.
  • Cuse0507Cuse0507 Registered User Posts: 4,519 Senior Member
    Easier said than done? They are suicide bombers; their goal in life is to die. Surely if they are planning on dying they aren't afraid of the military, so that begs the question why don't they target the military?

    I have played paintball, and I always shoot at the people shooting back at me. I don't walk into the lobby and shoot the spectators in the face, because they have nothing to do with it. Unless they paid for my competition's paint, in which case my shooting hte spectator in the face would be somehow justified...?

    Anywys, enough for tonight.
