Gaza
I am furious and disgusted that people in this forum open threads about the most insignificant news in the World News section, but completely forget to open a thread addressing the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

Jul 24: The UN has warned that Israel's actions in Gaza could amount to war crimes as the death toll rises above 700 amongst Palestinians.

Jul 26: Israel's aggression on Gaza have been so severe that a humanitarian truce had to be put in place in order to provide Palestinians with aid and supplies. More than 900 Palestinians have died, thousands are wounded.

This temporary truce is a chance to resupply hospitals, evacuate the injured and bury the dead before the killing onslaught by Israel continues into the next round.


Things are escalating quickly in Gaza. People live in terror and misery, while Americans and Europeans turn a blind eye. Show some compassion. Or is it that your christian and national indoctrination has blinded you, so you avert your eyes on purpose? And you call yourselves free thinkers...


If anyone wants to donate, you could do it here.

Fun "paradox": The higher the selection pressure, the slower evolution takes place.

There are several threads about this in the politics section. Maybe check there before making a giant condescending ass of yourself.

RE: Gaza
No threads in World News section. No threads regarding this most recent humanitarian crisis in the politics section.

Maybe take your own advice and check there yourself before making an utter incompassionate ass hole of yourself.

RE: Gaza
I will give you an A for intent but a F on delivery.

How about you open one and articulate some information on it rather then just posting some links if you find this never ending issue fascinating? While you are on it, shall we roll out the hundreds of other worldwide tragedies and discuss them as well, or do you just have a soft spot for the armpit of the world?

Here, I will share a paper I wrote on this very subject just last week. Kind of give you a clue how to do it.

On this paper, we were asked to pretend to be Iranian intelligence forces secretly destabilizing the area to undermine and cause the dismantlement of Israel.

-----------------------------------------------------------









Midterm – Systematic undermining of Israel
Terrorism CRM332
Eric #######
23 July 2014


Abstract
This paper will describe the concept of what it would take for Iran to systematically undermine and obtain the end cause of the exclusion of Israel from the United Nations, and the empowerment and inclusion of Palestine as a state and as a member of the United Nations. It will list main resources, strategies and objectives for the overt and covert accomplishment of this goal. It will note the strengths, weaknesses and potential obstacles to achieving the end goal. The author will lastly offer an opinion on some of the information presented in these chapters.
Keywords: Hezbollah, Hamas, Israel, CIA, Palestine, history of the Middle East




Introduction
It is my intent to determine the plethora of effective ways to potentially achieve the end goal provided in the abstract. The concept and most likely reality of Iran’s intention to become a world leader in the Middle East is very interesting and challenging theory. The history of this particular area of the Middle East has long been the center of the a series of violent clashes between Hamas and Israel.

Historical background
The Gaza strip, which Israel occupied from 1967 and invaded again in 2006 and 2009, contains almost 1.6 million Arabs. Israel’s Jews are divided between those of European origin, called Ashkenazim, and those who came from Asian or African countries, called Mizrachim or Orientals. The Gaza Strip is a Palestinian region on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea that borders Egypt on the southwest and Israel on the east and north border. In 1994, Israel granted the right of self-governance of Gaza through the Palestinian Authority. Since 2007, the United Nations Gen. Assembly “accorded Palestine non-member observer state status in the United Nations”. Sunni Muslims make up the predominant part of the Palestinian population Gaza Strip.

The Hamas; which means Islamic resistance movement, is a Palestinian Sunni Islamic organization, with an associated military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, and the Palestinian territories and elsewhere in the Middle East including Qatar. Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization by Israel and a number of Western and non-Western governments; the United States, Canada, the European union, Jordan, Egypt and Japan classify Hamas as a terrorist organization. Other states, however, including Iran, Russia, Turkey, China and many Arab nations do not. Since 2007, Hamas has governed the Gaza Strip, after it won a majority of seats in a Palestinian parliament in 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections and defeated the Fatah political organization in a series of violent clashes.

Hezbollah; which means party of Allah, is a Shi’a Islamist militant group and political party based in Lebanon. Hezbollah’s paramilitary wing is the Jihad Council; once seen as a resistance movement throughout much of the Arab world, this image upon which the groups legitimacy rested has been severely damaged due to the sectarian nature of the Syrian civil war in which it has become involved since 2012. Hezbollah was conceived by Muslim clerics and funded by Iran following the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, it was primarily formed to offer resistance to the Israeli occupation.

Hamas resources
1) A complex series of tunnels.
2) Multiple missile launchers.
3) A rudimentary to medium grade missile production capability and stock of missiles.
4) Air defense capabilities




Zionist resources
1) Compulsory military service gives Israel a potential 3 million people available for military service.
2) Political, financial and logistical support of the United States, the European union, Jordan, Egypt and Japan.
3) Superior military strength to include tactical nukes and highly trained fighter pilots.

Our short and long term objectives
1) To destabilize Israel and ensure the Fatah political group does not regain strength.
2) To provoke mass civil and political uprising against Israel.
3) To encourage Israel to penetrate Hamas controlled areas and exploit this for military and political gain.
4) To manipulate public and political opinion Israel in such a manner as to cause reduction removal of such support. This would lead to long-term goal of having Israel identified as a terrorist group and their subsequent removal from the United Nations. The creation of the Palestinian state and inclusion into the United Nations.

Destabilization of Israel
First we need to promulgate policy and detailed instructions for the development of our first wave of political warriors. We need to identify a group of educated, intelligent and loyal members of our group in which to use to penetrate the very societal fabric of the Hamas. This group will do everything in their power to look, act and speak as Palestinians. All religious practices are hereby suspended until further notice, with Allah’s blessings, as we seek to achieve our goals for the glory of Allah. They will shave their beards, they will not speak Farsi, and they must absorb and emulate Palestinian customs. They will work to build civil, political and media support as well as sympathy for the Palestinian cause. They will pretend to be Palestinian freedom fighters, and will work to provide a specific view of the Palestinians fighting against the Zionist oppressors, with stories, approved video and audio feed and coordinated testimonies to be exploited for the purpose of control of the media’s view of our righteous fight for freedom. It is essential that our part in this is never exposed, we must value secrecy above all else as the political, economic and military reprisal of the discovery of our aggressive move to create and position Iran as the power of Middle East could be unrecoverable.

Provoke uprising
We will look for every opportunity to create a sympathetic media exploitation of our struggle. Sacrifices must be made and we must not lose sight of the end goal of the creation of a Palestinian state and implement of the Israel State. Unfortunately, we will have to accept the deaths of some of our brothers and sisters, the necessary sacrifice and loss of civilians in order to garner the necessary outrage to provoke a mass uprising. The more emotional and graphic the loss of life, the greater the resultant uprising shall be. This is necessary to gain the support of our cause internationally which will lead to the eventual disenfranchising of Israel from the protection of the United Nations.

Exploitation of Israel military
We will designate specific areas under our control in which to slowly reduce over a period of time the amount of Hamas military defendants guarding key areas. We will quietly draw attention to these areas by leaking the order reduced numbers of guards because of manning concerns via open link communications. We believe that as we know what circuits Israel monitors they will decide to take advantage of our perceived weakness. On top of the mass civil protest we will coordinate continuous sniper attacks against Israeli forces, they will be pressured to act strongly. We will purposely ensure that the guards in those areas are members of large prominent families so that there would be mass outrage and high levels of political pressure to punish Israel.

When the Israeli forces inevitably push in to the created weak spots, we will quickly retreat opening them to embrace battle lust and push deeply into our territory. When the time is right members of our lightning battalions that were staged hidden at the breach area will quickly cut them off. We will massacre them to the last man while gaining international support for our defense of our families and territory by the oppressive Israeli military forces. Politically, this can be used to create international civil and governmental outrage and Israel will begin to lose favor with the United Nations for these gross and aggressive military invasions of the Gaza Strip.

Support
We will have the covert support of Syria, Russia Turkey and China, however, at the slightest hint of exposure they will immediately remove all support and destroy all evidence of such support. If we are careful, we can exploit and manipulate segments of the Al Qaeda network, with the understanding that any interaction with Al Qaeda it is essential they assume we are Palestinians.

Conclusion
If we can create enough outrage, horror and civil unrest against and among Israelites we may be able to force a power shift and create a vote of distrust. This should allow us the opportunity to quickly surge into a politically dominant position. Once we have effectively manipulated the Western media into a sympathetic position of the Palestinian freedom fighters oppressed status by the militant aggressive terrorist state of Israel, the foundation of their future exile United Nations is at hand. Then my brothers we will have the opportunity to finally get our great state of Palestine on the world stage where we belong.

Authors opinion
In summary, as I review and introspectively analyze this project, it strikes me as being very relevant to the ongoing struggle between Palestine and Israel. I am not sure how far from fact that this “fictional” paper truly is. It will be interesting to see what develops in the future with the continuous political military unrest of the Gaza Strip.

So feel free to start discussions, but don't come in the room swinging your moral hammer while you "look away" from hundreds of other worldwide tragedies...*points to Africa*. It is easy to focus on things that interest or impact you, and not others, and that is true for everyone, including yourself.

Try a little harder on your interpersonal skills next time. Yes

No, no, no, Rev. I mean, nevermind the times the issue has been discussed. Nevermind the genuine sentiments we've expressed. Obviously each of us, by virtue of not having explicitly created the right threads in the right places, doesn't care. Probably because dat evil gummint brainwashing or something.
