RE: Who do you support, Israel or the Palistinians?
I'm generally not one for finger-pointing. The mess was made, and now people have to deal with it. Otherwise, people are just going to keep dying. So without going into the history of Israel, I think huge mistakes were made on both sides, and the parties of god (in the words of Christopher Hitchens) have retarded progress in this matter (on both sides).

Since this thread is about choosing sides, I will side with Palestine. I always root for the underdog.

Also: Islam isn't the only terrorist-producing religion. Religion drives people to do horrible things because they believe god is on their side. There are Jewish terrorists too. You'll come across a few if you read up on the history of Israel. And dare I mention my own Catholic countrymen? There was a time when being Irish Catholic automatically branded you as a terrorist.

We'll solve this when we flush all religions down the toilet. While we're at it, let's also flush tribalism down the toilet. The terms "Arab" and "Jew" should have no meaning in today's world.

Everything in there makes perfect sense, i just got a problem with dropping the idea of ethnic culture, as i am proud of my nordic germanic heritage. That is my identity, and i am not my own self if i should lose that heritage.

But religions need to go... Crusades and jihads need to stop or else the middle east will eventually degrade into nuclear war.

This thread hurts my mind.

RE: Who do you support, Israel or the Palistinians?
That history lession is still coming btw Icelandic.

It's been sitting in a reply in a tab in my broswer since last night, just gotta get round to finishing it.
It's quite extensive as is all my history lessions.
For a forum post that is.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

The western countries created a country for foreign people on the lamd the palistinians had been living on for generations and they were just kicked out.
The western countries had a lot of practice with North America, South America, Australia, and Africa.

Just because my historical knowledge is superior to that of your own doesn't mean that I am full of myself.

And I'm 21. Why? You gonna play the "because you seem like you're 12" card?
You mad because you don't know the topic you wanna disscuss bro?

RE: Who do you support, Israel or the Palistinians?
Oh im sure youre knowledge of this topic is far superior to mine, judging by the fact that im 7 years your junior ya dickhead. And the slightly more evolved thing... Yeah i detect a person who thinks the universe revolves around him and his snarky comments insted of the sun.

And id love ta see that little history essay youve got for me, which is either a: from a college essay you had to do, or b: something you did because you have absoloutly nothing else to do with your spare time.
