I donate to these dudes.
Ex U.S military peace activists.
I want to pledge my support to the Jewish state. It is the only democracy in the Middle East, and in spite of the constant threat of attacks from it's Arab neighbors, and the bogus UN resolutions drafted against them, the country continues to prosper!
Arab countries attempted to whitewash history. The amount written on the Palestinian political situation is abundant, but when has one ever heard about the ethnic cleansing of the Jews of Muslim-dominated countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
These Jews numbered nearly 1,000,000 people at the conclusion of World War 2. Most were forced to immigrate, mainly to Israel under threat of death. They enacted Nuremberg style laws, denied Jews their status as citizens, expelled them from most jobs and the civil service, killed many outright after being convicted in kangaroo style courts of being "spies of Israel." The Jews were only allowed to escape to other nations, if they agreed to transfer all their assets (property, business, personal belongings, etc) to the state.
It is an inconvenient truth, but Jews aren't known to whine about their tragic history. Arabs are...
The bottom line to all of this is that the Palestinians don't want peace at all - let me clarify - the Palestinian leaders don't want peace with Israel. But if one were to speak with the average Palestinian, they do want peace with Israel and there is (at least) one independent documentary I saw on one of the TV stations (can't remember if it was CBC, CTV or Global) that went among the Palestinians to ask what their beef was with Israel. The vast majority of the Palestinians that were interviewed said that they had no bone to pick (my words) with Israel and were, in fact, thankful for Israel because they provided them with fresh water, medical supplies & treatments etc. Some actually worked in Israel while others had no comment one way or the other. I found that to be very interesting.
So who really stands to gain by warring with Israel on a regular basis because it certainly isn't the "average" Palestinian.
Israels importance diminishes with the value of oil.
China gives aid to the world.
Russia gives aid to the world.
Cuba sends doctors to the world.
USA gives 38 billion per year or $750 Us,. to Israel every minute 24 hours per day in military supplies, as Americans die from lack of medical equipment.
This will work out well.�� NOT!!!
Anti-Semetism is alive and well in NZ it seems.
Americans die for lack of medical equipment? Oh dear... you are not talking about ventilators and PPE?
Why are libs so uneducated.
Oh dear. Dixie has, purely by accident, stumbled upon a truth.
Now, let's see if she can extend that to the average German in 1936, the average American in 1775, the average Russian from 1945-1990, or the average Chinese from 7000 years ago-this morning.
Israel's settlement policy
Israeli settlers in Hebron, West Bank
Israel has had its settlement growth and policies in the Palestinian territories harshly criticized by the European Union citing it as increasingly undermining the viability of the two-state solution and running in contrary to the Israeli-stated commitment to resume negotiations. In December 2011, all the regional groupings on the UN Security Council named continued settlement construction and settler violence as disruptive to the resumption of talks, a call viewed by Russia as a "historic step". In April 2012, international outrage followed Israeli steps to further entrench the Jewish settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, which included the publishing of tenders for further settler homes and the plan to legalize settler outposts. Britain said that the move was a breach of Israeli commitments under the road map to freeze all settlement expansion in the land captured since 1967. The British Foreign Minister stated that the "Systematic, illegal Israeli settlement activity poses the most significant and live threat to the viability of the two state solution". In May 2012 the 27 foreign ministers of the European Union issued a statement which condemned continued Israeli settler violence and incitement. In a similar move, the Quartet "expressed its concern over ongoing settler violence and incitement in the West Bank," calling on Israel "to take effective measures, including bringing the perpetrators of such acts to justice." The Palestinian Ma'an News agency reported the PA Cabinet's statement on the issue stated that the West, including East Jerusalem, were seeing "an escalation in incitement and settler violence against our people with a clear protection from the occupation military. The last of which was the thousands of settler march in East Jerusalem which included slogans inciting to kill, hate and supports violence".

In a report published in February 2014 covering incidents over the three-year period of 2011–2013, Amnesty International asserted that Israeli forces employed reckless violence in the West Bank, and in some instances appeared to engage in wilful killings which would be tantamount to war crimes. Besides the numerous fatalities, Amnesty said at least 261 Palestinians, including 67 children, had been gravely injured by Israeli use of live ammunition. In this same period, 45 Palestinians, including 6 children had been killed. Amnesty's review of 25 civilians deaths concluded that in no case was there evidence of the Palestinians posing an imminent threat. At the same time, over 8,000 Palestinians suffered serious injuries from other means, including rubber-coated metal bullets. Only one IDF soldier was convicted, killing a Palestinian attempting to enter Israel illegally. The soldier was demoted and given a 1-year sentence with a five-month suspension. The IDF answered the charges stating that its army held itself "to the highest of professional standards," adding that when there was suspicion of wrongdoing, it investigated and took action "where appropriate"
The problem with all this is that no one of any importance gives a Flynn fukk what the EU or the UN think.
One wonders why Nut Zone Doug seems to take shots at Israel and Jews, whenever possible, considering there are barely any Jews in New Zealand. Sigmund Freud would ahve a field day with him.
No, we were saying we had no idea that antisemitism was so prevalent in NZ.

We celebrate Waitangi Day on Feb.6 annually.
Waiting Day is the day of the “Running of the Jews”.
It is also Bob Marleys birthday,as we here are Rastafarians, who believe the Jews belong n Africa.
“Rastafari originated among impoverished and socially disenfranchised Afro-Jamaican communities in 1930s Jamaica. Its Afrocentric ideology was largely a reaction against Jamaica's then-dominant British colonial culture. It was influenced by both Ethiopianism and the Back-to-Africa movement promoted by black nationalist figures such as Marcus Garvey. The movement developed after several Protestant Christian clergymen, most notably Leonard Howell, proclaimed that Haile Selassie's crowning as Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930 fulfilled a Biblical prophecy. By the 1950s, Rastafari's counter-cultural stance had brought the movement into conflict with wider Jamaican society, including violent clashes with law enforcement. In the 1960s and 1970s it gained increased respectability within Jamaica and greater visibility abroad through the popularity of Rasta-inspired reggae musicians, most notably Bob Marley. Enthusiasm for Rastafari declined in the 1980s, following the deaths of Haile Selassie and Marley, but the movement survived and has a presence in many parts of the world.
