Meanwhile back in California;
California Highway Patrol investigators have seized the medical records of a woman seen on video being repeatedly punched by one of its officers on the side of a Los Angeles freeway.
Why do they need her psychiatric medical history? They are grasping at straws on this. Remember when they say medical records are private the are lying. NEVER seek help for a mental health problem it can and will be used against you.

Seem silly to request medical records. They apparently have nothing to do with the Officer's actions.

Does The PLO/Hamas accept the existence of Israel?

You are confusing day-to-day tactical responses, with the Foundational Problem:

The PLO/Hamas want the destruction of the Israeli State. Until they renounce this: There can never be true steps towards peace.

The first step towards Peace is REALLY in The PLO/Hamas Court. Not Israel.

PLO/Hamas MUST ACCEPT ISRAEL'S EXISTANCE!!!

You keep saying this as if it is the only thing going on here. Stop banging that drum and you might hear some of what Israel is doing to make this situation worse.

Israel needs to accept Palestine's existence.
That means they need to stop the inhumane blockade.
They need to stop deliberately targeting children.
They need to stop detaining people without trial.
They need to stop settling Palestinian land.

Sayed Kashua: why I have to leave Israel


Understand your thinking. It just aides and abets the Terrorists.

Doesn't really matter. Hamas (The Cheering Children Killer's) is getting more isolated. They are so bad: They have recently lost the financial backing if Iran, and the Political backing of other Mid-East Country's.

Why do you still act like a shill for these Murderers?

Anyway Detroit water seems very unimportant at this point in time. There is a real concern on breaking news.

Yeah, we know!

6 California's

What a waste of $2,000,000!

Why dont we just give it back to Mexico? We stole it from them in a made up war anyway. Give it back to them and then be done with it.

Mexico was in possession of Stolen Property. It was stolen originally by the Spanish. The US 'Stole' - Stolen Property, would be more accurate.

When Mexico gives all back to the Aztecs, Mayans, etc., who do want THEIR land back. Then Mexico will have some moral authority in this matter.

The sad thing is that, in the end, Putin will win: Greater Russia!!!.

Russia is the '500 pound gorilla' in the region.

http://abc7.com/news/nypd-cops-chokehold-may-not-have-seriously-injured-mans-throat/203167/
A man who died after a New York City police officer took him to the ground in a chokehold appeared to have little damage to his neck and trachea, according to preliminary autopsy results, a law enforcement source said, but that may not be enough to keep him from being disciplined or even facing criminal charges.

Anybody looking at the video, without an agenda, can see there was no 'Choke Hold'.

Appears NYC going the way of Chicago. Both now have Left Wing Ideologue Mayor's who do not care for Victim's, nor the people assigned to protect them.

Very sad.

Youtube isn't, but the section is from CNN, which is mainstream media.

CNN talking heads are NOT mainstream any more than Rush Limbaugh is. This is truly sad if you are serious. I do hope you are just having sport with Batter Up.

CNN, FOX, MSNBC, BBC, etc., are all the same.

There are no Main Stream (read legitimate) New Organizations anymore, if there ever was.

The best one can do is watch All the 'News' Shows, and then form an opinion.

Are you referring to yourself?

I've never claimed that Hamas is the good party here or that they never violated any cease fire agreements.

Who said Israel is without sin?

Mainstream? A YouTube blog is NOT mainstream. I don't know weather to laugh or cry. The other two are tripe and not worthy of comment.

Youtube isn't, but the section is from CNN, which is mainstream media.

And sure, just ignore the evidence that doesn't suit with your convictions.

It is time for the Non-Russian European Country's to FINALLY take responsibility for Their Continent.

Is it US vs Europe time again?
I don't think "we people" like that:(

Time for Europe to grow up, and take responsibly for THEIR problems.
This is not "US vs Europe".
Europe has been living under 'Daddy's Roof' for too long. Understand the problem when 'kicked out of the nest'. But the time has come for Europe to take responsibility.

You are sounding like Putin:)

Understand the pain, and name calling. Comes with growing up.

This, anti Israeli rant is TOTALLY absurd.

Solution, agreed by Israel, over the years: TWO States. Israel and Palestine. Perhaps never to be friends. Perhaps something like a Divorced Couple.

Why will the Palestinians/Hamas (they are now allied) not accept this concept, and all they do is just call for the destruction of Israel?

FIRST step to the long process toward peace: Accept the existence of Israel, by their enemy's. The ball IS NOT in Israel's Court.

Question: Does Israel have a right to exist? Those responding NO. Please explain.

For one, Israel does not accept the two state solution itself. So, they can't even agree on that.

http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/Ministers-reject-anti-annexation-bills-337179

http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/insideisrael/2013/July/Netanyahus-Party-Rejects-Two-States/

http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/world-news/israel-rejects-usled-negotiations-twostate-solution-has-no-validity-28473092.html

Even if the concept of a two state solution is accepted by Israel, there is still the issue of the borders. The Palestinians want to use the 1967 borders which Israel rejects since it has moved a substantial part of its population into the other side of that border.

So why do the Palestinians reject the two state solution? Well for now they have been rejecting it because its not a good deal for them. They lose more territory and it would heavily favor Israel. They don't think thats fair and I can't blame them for thinking that.

And its just Hamas that calls for the destruction of Israel. Abbas and his party do not. The problem is that Hamas controls the Gaza strip and Abbas has no control over them.

Finally, whether the actions of Hamas are acceptable is an irrelevant question. Of course they are not acceptable and there can be no deal with a group that fundamentally rejects the existence of Israel. However, that does not give Israel a blank cheque to do what it wants. Israels actions must also be scrutinized and currently Israeli actions do not hold up well under scrutiny. Its breaching various international treaties that it has signed, it is blatantly violating human rights and one could even argue that war crimes are being committed. Israel, like Hamas, MUST be held to account if peace is ever going to get a chance.

And this is another point of contention which makes the situation of the Palestinians difficult. They clearly see that Israel IS NEVER held to any form of account. UN statements that are deemed critical of Israel are either toned down or rejected, the US vetoes everything that is even slightly critical or unwanted by Israel, investigations are stonewalled, their eventual findings are rejected or ignored and the Zionist lobby all around the world silences critics by calling them Anti-Semites and piling them with Neo-Nazis and holocaust deniers. So, it should come as no surprise that the Palestinians hold very little trust in the international community because they clearly see they are extremely biased towards Israel.

Does The PLO/Hamas accept the existence of Israel?

Im starting to belive that Russia is the one to blame for this. Its well known that in the Korean war they had pilots flying Mig 15's engaging US fighters. Also during Viet Nam, It is highly suspected they did the same.

Why would they not try the same tactic in an area they covete? IE a missle crew.

The US is not going to get really involved.

Neither the Present Administration, nor The American People, want to.

It is time for the Non-Russian European Country's to FINALLY take responsibility for Their Continent.

Their economy, in total, is larger than The US. Let them Really pay the enormous cost (Aircraft Carrier Battle Groups, Sufficient Heavy Lift Bombers, Sufficient Heavy Lift Transports, World Wide Enormous Military Bases, etc.). They can afford it.

[There are always persons, on both side, that wish...

And use the ballot box ...

But until the Leader's of The PLO/Hamas state Israel has the right to exist: Israel's enemy's MUST be considered guilty of prolonging the killing.

If you poke a stick at someone who you know will tear you head off if you poke them, is that a suicide wish? Is this the cult of the 72? Is it a version of Heaven's Gate all over again?

Don't poke a murder who wishes to kill you? Live in a cave?

If Isreal pulls back from new building settlements ground and gives back territory to Palestine. There won't be a reason for missiles going to the Israel side.

Absurd. Hamas calls for the destruction of Israel as a State. This is Not about any 'occupation'.


I find it hard to see it reality that Hamas will be able to defeat/destroy Israel.
More likely is the result of that that Israel will defeat "their" enemies with the world sit and watch.

Oh! I didn't understand Israel doesn't have enemies. Silly, silly silly.

Of course Israel has THE RIGHT to defeat those who wish to destroy it.


There are those on both sides who want to annihilate the other. So if, as you say, Israel has the "right" to do so, then by that reasoning...?

For most people, they just want to get on with their lives and see their children grow up. And they are the ones who are suffering :(

There are always persons, on both side, that wish...

But until the Leader's of The PLO/Hamas state Israel has the right to exist: Israel's enemy's MUST be considered guilty of prolonging the killing.

I Blame The Airline Company Execs for Allowing the plane to Fly Near The Conflict.

Blame-100%

Warring Parties-0%

Got Flight Plan? No? Result: In Da News.

' '

Is that how the US justified shooting down the Iranian Airbus in 1988 killing all 290 passengers and the crew?

The US IMMEDIATELY took responsibility, and paid for the Victims and the Plane.

This equating the US with Putin's Criminal Government is just another attempt to justify murder.

I spoke too soon about the NY incindent not getting any attention; the Rev. Al is now community activating.

Is that Tawana Brawley he's hugging?


Rev. Al Sharpton leads calls for justice in NYPD chokehold death

Knew him back when. He was known as Little Al Sharpton. A Community Activist, who was in it just for the money.

Nothings changed. But, I like the guy. He a great 'scam artist' and everyone falls for it. He's laughing all the way to the bank.

Couldn't stop laughing back in 2008, when he was running in the Democratic Primary's for President. There he is, with Hillary and other's, answering serious questions from the News Media, during debates.

I wasn't laughing AT Sharpton. I was laughing WITH Sharpton. He probably couldn't believe he was taken seriously.

If I understand your 'thinking'.

Obviously you don't :(
It appears you make the mistake of thinking all Palestinians support Hamas.

If a bunch of cheering murdering psychotic's continually attack you: You can not use better weapons, to defend yourself, against them?

If your next door neighbour attacks me. Do I have the right to level the entire neighbourhood, including your house, in retaliation and claim "self defence" ?

If I destroyed your house and possibly killed members of your family, who would you hate the most, your neighbour or me ?

If I destroyed your house and possibly killed members of your family, who would you be most likely to retaliate against, your neighbour or me ?

This is a problem with certain military minds. They just can't understand that if they use bulk retaliation techniques that kill innocents and unnecessarily destroy homes and infrastructure, it turns neutrals and, even those who were previously supporters against them. So by killing one innocent you create multiple opponents.

There are many to whom "collateral damage" is not that collateral, just ask any Vietnamese, Afghani, Palestinian or other who just wanted/wants both sides to f*ck off and let them live in peace.

T.A.

I am glad you're not in charge protecting anything.

Oh! I didn't understand. Someone fires 1600 bullets at my children, but miss. Therefore... My response must be to find a 'bad shot', and make sure he doesn't hit too much. Great 'Thinking'.

Does Israel have the right to exist?

Of course, its creation was no more dodgy than any other middle east country where the borders were decided by others. Therefore if the borders of Iraq, Iran, Pakistan etc are considered legitimate, then so are Israel's.

It does not however, have the right to invade and destroy an entire country because one section of that country's population fires a rockets, which are barely as sophisticated as a 4th of July bottle rocket, at them and which are easily handled by their existing defences

If Hamas was serious about causing terror in Israel they'd be using car bombs not these bottle rockets. Why Hamas keeps firing these things over the border, despite their ineffectiveness is something a Shrink could use as a thesis for their PhD.

The whole situation is proof that the looney right is the looney right, no matter what side of a border they live on. If Hamas and the Israeli govt. swapped territories the situation would continue unchanged and no-one would notice the difference.

Haters got to hate ....

T.A.

If I understand your 'thinking'.

Agree: "Haters got to..." We know who the haters really are.

I can understand why one religion wanting no other in its territory but to a non-Muslim, it makes no sense - Sunni killing Shi'ites, Shi'ites killing Sunni's with other smaller Muslim sects killing each other. When they can longer work with each other, attack the foreigner in their midst?

Christian's killing other Christian's (deferent sects) is part of European History.

The West may have advanced beyond that. But it is understandable.
