Israeli government stays hot garbage.
again, mods, please either remove the ugly red wall of text from my OP or lock the thread. someone else can make a thread about this if they want, i don't want to be the one with that text in my OP.
edit: reposting my post from the thread about the murder of a 14 year old kid by an israeli soldier that was locked a few days ago
If Jewish people truly cared, they should protest by not visiting Jerusalem while this bill is active.
Things are about to get real ugly.
Well the israeli people voted for that so i won't shed any tears for whatever happens to them.
The israeli state makes it pretty easy to become anti-semit.
Perhaps we'll get to see this play out firsthand in another decade or so.
Gentiles will be gentiles.
A whattaboutist could argue this is no less shocking than what neighbouring muslim countries do in relation to Islam and Arabic language, but one has to wonder how far is Israel from the adoption of a Jewish supremacism as an explicitly stated policy at this point.
I understand why that moderation policy was put in place but my opinion is that it needs to be revised. Israel's current policies have to be called out for what they are. Words have a lot of power and, maybe, if we are allowed to use the proper words to describe these despicable policies, the people who support them will snap out of any propaganda and realize what this sick government is doing. Mods and admins, please think about this.
Wrong thread! oops sorry.
Anti - (anti-Semitic)
How long will the moderation team continue standing by their decision to not allow comparisons between the actions of the Israeli government and the actions of the Nazi Party when the parallels keep increasing in number and similarity???
At what point will you guys say enough is enough?
Apartheid Africa is a better comparison than Nazi Germany to Israel anyhow.
Yeah, it sucks that Israel seems to routinely get a pass from the harshest of critisisms (that, say are leveled against a government such as Trump's frequently). But considering there are still Israelis alive today that had their entire families murdered by Nazi's I dont think it's too much to ask, considering there are better and more accurate ways to critisize the actions of the Israeli government.
On topic, this is gross and disgusting. Israel slips day by day into a singular apartheid ethnostate and the US seems totally ok with it.
Freaking disgusting. Every county in Earth should be levying sanctions against Israel right now, but they ain't : /
The sad truth that all the Israelis must deal with is that the racist countries will cease to exist at some point in the future, the history gave us a lot of lessons. they either reform their laws and be more just and fair or they will lose their country and their power and maybe more than that.
I genuinely wonder, is there a single person from Israel on this forum that thinks the current government is evil incarnate and their action intolerable?
Like look at Trump, he has supporters but many people can see through his mask and think he should be stopped. Does that happen in Israel or everyone is cheering for what's going on ?
I don't get what Israel is doing.
This is just all around awful news.
This is the opposite of what I expected when it comes to peace in the middle east.
Holy shit some of the comments in this thread.
I'm going to sleep.
About the topic though it's awful news. Bibi needs to go.
What a racist law. Israel is a prime example of how not to respond to trauma. It acts like someone who was abused in childhood who becomes an abuser themselves, rather than breaking the cycle. What a disgrace and what a bad example of human response to tragedy. I am not idicting all Jewish / Israeli people obviously, but the state is one of the worst.
I wonder if there was a not all German policy if internet was a thing back than.
Super gross and shitty.
Obama/Bibi's not-so-cold war behind the scene gives me hop the next US pres can be more forceful on leveraging our influence to help stop the downward spiral there.
Tyranny of the majority. It's fucking disgusting.
lot of ultra far right orthodox Jews that are hardcore as hell and pretty much cancel out that resistance. It doesn't help that the Palestinians in Israel basically boycott all elections, so a sizable not BiBi friendly block just doesn't exist.
Since Israel is constantly engaging in border conflicts it makes a lot of the population nervous and thus the country kinda leans rightward. Its gotta suck to be a left leaning Israeli, feeling so damn powerless. Like with Trump but never ending.
This could be the start of the downward spiral.
I have a feeling that Israeli Jews might start kicking out Arabs as they already see them as second class citizens to allow for more Jews to come in causing more friction and trying to gain more of a majority.
everywhere. I stand by what I said. They won't win this. They never do.
There is no hope for change without external pressure, in other words.
This is actually a case where it doesn't matter who is leading the US because the US will always back Israel
Israel is different though, I think? Not sure how the numbers work out, but the quotes in OP seem to indicate in Israel proper its 80% Jews and 20% Arabs, I assume there is some christian number in there as well. If you throw in Palestine, do those numbers flip? But should you throw in Palestine / Gaza Strip?
If you assume a two country eventual solution, then its more like India (pre partition) isn't it? India got partitioned into India (mostly Hindu), Pakistan (Muslim), and Bangladesh (Muslim) and was extremely violent at partition time and on and off since. There are a few other countries that got similarly cut up.
I just have never understood why Palestine isn't yet its own country, I know Israel puts enormous pressure on the US to veto UN security council votes and stuff but surely the first step of some sort of peace is Palestine becoming its own country, sealing the borders with Israel, stopping any future settlements, and building its own security forces and the like. It just baffles me how the world seems to conspire to never allow it self determination.
The OP has requested that his thread be locked.
If another poster wishes to make another thread, they may.
