Israel Protecting it’s Solders

The ICRC has stated that Israel’s use of white phosphorus appears to be legal. The International Committee of the Red Cross urged Israel to exercise “extreme caution” in using the incendiary agent, which is used to illuminate targets at night or create a smoke screen for day attacks, said Peter Herby, the head of the… Continue reading Israel Protecting it’s Solders

Jenin

Many still believe that Israel conducted a massacre in Jenin in 2002. It was interesting to read in Wikipedia today just how thoroughly that myth has been debunked. (I guess the “may have been civilians” doubt may be because 21 terrorists dropped their guns when they were shot!) As part of the operation, which involved… Continue reading Jenin

Clean Debating

Some time ago, I was drawn into a discussion with a libertarian regarding a neo-Nazi hate site. At the end of the discussion, the other fellow expressed the need to wash, since his principles had led him to defend the rights of people that were utterly repugnant to him. It has occurred to me that… Continue reading Clean Debating

Palestine before Israel

It’s interesting, how Israel is accused of stealing the land of the Palestinians. Flicking through my George Muller book, I came across a paragraph of where Mr Muller (who late in life traveled the world, preaching to millions) traveled through Palestine. It is in fact described as “baren, rocky and uncultivated”. I also read a… Continue reading Palestine before Israel

End Conservation Now! Kill the Kiwi!

Judging from The Standard’s post this morning, we can expect Labour’s next environmental policy to do away with protecting native species. After all, that goes against the first principle of evolution – survival of the fittest. After all, why should vulnerable people (oops species) be favored in special protection areas? It’s a bad analogy, I… Continue reading End Conservation Now! Kill the Kiwi!

Consistency in Protesting

So there’s a call for Shahar Peerto withdraw from the ASB turniment. It’s idiotic. However, the protesters have (for once) explained how this might actually make an impact. Mr Minto said Peer should withdraw from the Classic to bring attention to the plight of Palestinians. “She is a high profile figure in Israel, and for… Continue reading Consistency in Protesting

Why Hate Israel?

I despair about the sheer hatred coming out of the blogosphere against Israel. Ultimately, Israel was founded as a place for Jews to return to, to escape hundreds, thousands of years of being persecuted. For their trouble, they were immediately invaded by 5 armies. They have fought wars since, many deliberately designed to try and… Continue reading Why Hate Israel?

Neighborhood Bully

(Song by Bob Dylan, I first saw this on LGF some time ago. I don’t think I have much more to say than the below on the current conflict, but we’ll see.) Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man, His enemies say he’s on their land. They got him outnumbered about a million to… Continue reading Neighborhood Bully

Why there will never be peace in the Middle East

David Farrar writes on the above topic. He’s right. Unlike David, I don’t find it funny anymore. It’s stupid and annoying. Fortunately, David and I only have to turn off the news. People in Israel have to duck rockets. —- I’ve been thinking quite a lot about the whole Israel thing lately. Who is right,… Continue reading Why there will never be peace in the Middle East
