I call Israel Nazi and you blast with this?

You may have a reading comprehension problem.

You brought up "wiping Israel off the earth" which has been attributed to the President of Iran.

You then go on about Hamas, as if Hamas and Palestine are the same thing.

After that I did kind of lose track of what you were saying, but the gist seemed to be that they are both as bad as each other which I do, in this instance, disagree with.

One side is clearly much worse than the other.

I replied as best as I could considering the generally disjointed content of your post.

Why do you keep on wittering on about the Israeli Government handing out candy when an act of ethnic cleansing is taking place against the inhabitants of Gaza?

Perhaps because the only ETHNIC cleansing taking place is Hamas (not an ethnicity, but a political party) attempting to wipe all the Jewish off the planet. That doesn't mean Israel isn't trying to wipe Hamas off the planet, just that is isn't ETHNIC.

War should be the most vile, filthy, horrific, shocking, disgusting, repulsive thing man does, just so he remembers never to do it.

Since both sides seem to be after "the final solution" I place both in the same moral niche with the author of "the final solution."

If you actually look at the facts about what is going on in Palestine you will realise that Israel is trying to wipe the Palestinians off the face of the Earth.

I know there has supposedly been rhetoric about "wiping Israel off the face of the earth" (which seems to have been based on a mistranslation of something said years ago), but you are very keen to go on about facts.

So try it.

Find out what is actually going on in Palestine. Not what the media is telling you.

Fact one: The Israelis are an occupying force.
Fact two: they have been illegally settling Palestinian lands
Fact three: they have been imposing draconian measure on the Palestinian people
Fact four: they have killed far more innocents than the Palestinians have.

Stories from an occupation: the Israelis who broke silence
A group called Breaking the Silence has spent 10 years collecting accounts from Israeli soldiers who served in the Palestinian territories. To mark the milestone, 10 hours' worth of testimony was read to an audience in Tel Aviv. Here we print some extracts


Israel/Occupied Palestinian Territories
Human Rights Concerns

Amnesty International's concerns are based on international standards and applied equally within the proper legal framework. The legal framework is defined by who retains jurisdiction, or effective control, over an area and the circumstances or situation at the time of the human rights violation. Amnesty's concerns within Israel-proper, the area inside the 1949 (W. Bank/E. Jerusalem) and 1951 (Gaza Strip) armistice lines (also called the '1967 borders') include but are not limited to, ill-treatment and torture of detainees, excessive use of force, the detention of conscientious objectors, and forced evictions and home demolitions within 'unrecognized' Bedouin villages.

SICK SICK people....

Did the Israeli Government handout candy? Did the Israeli people celebrate in the streets?

A few Social Media deranged persons are not the above.

The only difference is one group has access to the internet.

Since that is a negative. What will be your next excuse?

Did the Israeli Government hand out candy? Did the Israeli people celebrate in the streets?

Why do you keep on wittering on about the Israeli Government handing out candy when an act of ethnic cleansing is taking place against the inhabitants of Gaza?

Someone just posted pictures on facebook of the children being targeted and murdered by the Israeli military. I can't post them here because they are too disturbing.

These are little 9, 10 and 11 year old boys who were playing football.

Does anyone here have a 9 year old son? Can you imagine seeing them ripped apart by shells from missiles? Can you imagine what you would do if someone did that to your child while they were playing on the beach?

The employee is paying for that part of the insurance. It is part of their remuneration for the work they do. I am not sure what the difference between the employer paying for insurance or the employer giving the employee money to buy these products actually is.

Well that's the problem employer supplied health care is a tax scam and should not be, if health care is a right the best model is a single payer system.

That is the truth.

Just one question.

If (fill-in the blank) were firing Children Killing Weapons at you. They continually announce they are doing this because YOUR Country should 'disappear'. They will not renounce this. They cheer in the street, and give out candy, rejoicing in the Murder of three of your children.

What do you do to stop these people from killing YOUR Children?

Again, which side are you referring to here?

Question. Which side rejoices and hands out candy, regarding the Murder of Three Civilian Youths?

Bombing of Gaza children gives me “orgasm”: Israelis celebrate slaughter on Facebook

there is a basic premise when dealing with a persons freedoms and rights.

that premise is that your rights and freedoms end where mine begin.

so in essence this thread is not truly about whether or not the owners have the right to practice their religion it is about where the line is between their rights and the employees rights.

Actually, this thread is about the idea that a corporation can practice religion as well as where that imaginary person's rights and the employees rights start.


since they felt that it was immoral to have anything to do with paying for the section b part of the contraceptives they could have tried to set up a deal with the insurance company so that any employee that wanted that part could have gotten it by paying that part of the insurance on their own.

The employee is paying for that part of the insurance. It is part of their remuneration for the work they do. I am not sure what the difference between the employer paying for insurance or the employer giving the employee money to buy these products actually is.

that way they could have avoided interfering with their employees rights without doing anything they considered immoral it was the outright denial of their employees rights that makes this an issue.

When you try to control what healthcare an employee can and cannot have access to, you are already in denial of their rights.

NBC News Pulls Veteran Reporter from Gaza After Witnessing Israeli Attack on Children

Yesterday, Mohyeldin witnessed and then reported on the brutal killing by Israeli gunboats of four young boys as they played soccer on a beach in Gaza City. He was instrumental, both in social media and on the air, in conveying to the world the visceral horror of the attack.

I've got a cat, so I'll pass on both.



If there were a cat on that pic, it would get difficult...

The cat is twice the size of the dog, but I'd say considering the nature of our cat, its an equal fight.

The problem is the two pitbulls in the garden next door. They hear that little dog yapping and they try to come through the fence to play. I had to shove them back the other day and fix the fence.

I was out mowing my back yard today. I pissed off a lot of grasshoppers! I saw
a small toad trying to escape from the path of the blades, so I stopped, picked it up,
and relocated it to a safe place. But the best thing for me was getting to see this
beauty. It's a wolf spider carrying an egg sack. I've seen a lot of wolf spiders, including
a couple with babies on her back, but I never thought about how the babies got there.
Now I realize that she constructs an egg sac and carries it around with her until the
little creatures emerge and climb up onto her back. I was afraid I'd lose her between
the time I first saw her and the time I got out there with my phone/camera. I almost
did. But while I was looking for her I saw yet another, smaller wolf spider with an egg
sac. I didn't photograph that one. I was after the big prize! Isn't she marvelous?!

They're both kinda cute.



They sure are! :)

Well I am kinda biased, so not the best judge.

I'm going to take the big hairy one out for a driving lesson. The little yappy one has gone home after a run in with the cat.

Thank you for your concerns. Yes this was close, as the next off ramp to the south is mine. Listened to the police scanner live, what an ordeal. At one point the were talking about a twelve year old hostage, but I guess that bit was not true.

Still pretty awful. Glad you are ok.

The neighbour's tiny, tiny dog keeps coming into our garden and barking at us. (The big hairy one is my baby. The small hairy one is the dog.)

This is what you get when the peoples of two different religious faiths feel their God gave them the same land. This is the greatest example of the worst part of religion.

It wasn't just god. It was the British.
