Robert Fisk: So, I asked the UN secretary general, isn't it time for a war crimes tribunal? - Robert Fisk, Commentators - The Independent (external - login to view)
Do you suggest a war crimes trial for both sides, only Israelis or only Palestinians.
In a 2002 report, Human Rights Watch stated that Hamas' leaders "should be held accountable for the war crimes and crimes against humanity"
well, warcrimes trials only appear to affect those that affected us....go figer! you going to tell me we didnt commit war crimes....me ling massacre(however its spelt)....colon powell tried to cover it up if you wish to do some research.......upto you mate, I dont give a sh!t
Not sure who your post is directed to but I didn't commit any war crimes so "we" can't be charged. The question really isn't that difficult to answer. Israeli, Palestinian or both?
Is this the anniversary that was being referenced?Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
Middle East Documents Balfour Declaration
"There are different theories about why the British agreed to issue the Balfour declaration when they issued it. One possibility is that the declaration was deliberately contrived to allow the British to renege on earlier promises to France and the Arabs regarding Palestine. Lloyd George reportedly said that British control over Palestine would prevent it from falling into the hands of the agnostic atheistic French. Another hypothesis, is that the declaration was intended to curry favor with the Jews, so that the Jews in the United States and Russia would influence their governments to support the British cause in the war. However, the declaration did not fall as a bolt from the blue, but was rather the culmination of a long tradition in Britain that supported restoration of the Jews to their own land for philosophical, religious and imperialistic motives."

That is usually the case.
Do enough wrong to somebody who loves you and eventually they will tell you to piss-off and don't come back. I can see the last few weeks of Israel's behaviour turning (a few) people away from supporting them. Maybe nobody who is very important but some eyes are opened now that were formerly closed.
why is so much money given to israel from the us..... any idea how much they get?
any idea WHY they get it?
MORE! WE NEED MORE THREADS ON ISRAEL and HAMMAS!
MORE MORE MORE
you know war crimes aren't allotted out on the number of people killed, but the number of people involved in committing or attemping to commit crimes.
Due to the nature of decision making in a centralized group (Israel) versus a decentralized militant resistance,
even in the most anti-semitic war crimes tribunals run by coke fiends and neo-nazis, only a handful of Israelis could be shot while hundreds of palestinians would await the gallows.
How would one determine if the tribunal was anti-semetic or would it automatically qualify as such simply by its application to Israel? Don't bother to reply, I think I can guess your answer. You know Zzarchov every critizism of Israel cannot be successfully met with charges of anti-semetism, sooner or later facts will rear thier inconvienient heads. I know you won't let that bother you though. I can only hope that my next lawyer will proceed with such loyal and adamant denial of reality.
