Happy Math v Terrorism

    @F_alk:

    Those people who “just” run amok and kill as many people as possible, i would not like to define as terrorists, but plain mad criminals.

    i see we are more or less on the same page. So with respect to your last paragraph - would you include abortion doctors in that category? 😄

    😉 …. well, if it is an abortion doctor who runs around and does abortions without consent of the possible mother, then yes.

    no no,
    just the children’s consent.



  • @El:

    And WHAT do you suggest…we let them kill one another?

    Yes, I know Israel has done some things wrong. It was on yesterday’s news.

    Yet I do not see the UN addressing Syria’s occupation of southern Lebanon permitting rocket and mortarattacks on northern Israel. Nor do I see the UN confronting Jordan on it’s occcupation of Palestinian territories.

    I speak from my limited world as do we all.

    One way would be:
    … to ignore international law once more, and for good this time :). Occupy Palestine and Israel, take fundamentalists of both sides prisoner (that also means part of the Israeli gov’t and parlament). Take their weapons and shoot anyone who doesn’t give it up.
    Another would be to hope that understanding and the way of violentless answers will rule one of the sides, so that the spiral of more and more violence can be broken. That would be a first step at least.

    For the UN not adressing anything there. Why should they try with the US’ position in the security council well known and extremely biased/obstructive.
    And i agree, we are not there, we cannot tell. And somehow i fear that there will be no solution in that area, unless the world as a whole just does a total (and i mean total) economic blockade of this area, telling them that we only lift that once they start to actually talk to each other. 2 enemies alway can ally when they find a new common enemy.

    Of course!!! Let’s attack Israel and Palestine!!!



  • well, it would have a bigger chance to unify them than most of the other proposals i fear. But with my statement of the 2 enemies … well, it was more of a metaphor than something to be done 1:1.

    This from a proponent of logic!?!?

    …and death to the “understanding and the way of violentless answers” side! Of course, the UN (especially most Middle East countries) expect this of Israel, not the Palestinians. Interestingly, enough it is the US (even NOW the GW Bush) administration which often brings the Israelis to the bargaining table by threats of or cutting off financial aid.

    Hmm! One little vote(Israel) and one BIG veto… That’s all that stands between Israel and extinction. “Give it back.” says the UN. “Give it back.” says the Palestinians. “Give it back.” says the terrorists. !BOOM! Dead Israelis. “Bad, bad Israelis!” Israel strikes back. Palestine puts young boys out to die… they die. “Bad, bad Israelis!” “Give it back.” says the UN…(the cycle continues.)

    HAAhahahahaahaHAAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAA!

    WHO’S CALLING WHO A TERRORIST?
    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - They call themselves Unknown To No One, but the five Iraqis bidding to become the world’s next chart-topping boy band are not exactly famous. Yet.

    “We lived under dictatorship for 35 years. I’m not prepared to go through that again, and I don’t think anybody is,” said lead singer Nadeem Hamed, a twenty-year-old biology student. “If people attack us for being in a band, that’s terrorism.”

    NOT MY WORDS, BUT THEIRS!

    no chance F_alk was being a mite facetious with his first comment, no? in order to contrast his more logical 2nd statement?



  • Thanks CC, that was what i would have said.



  • :oops: Oh, okay! I guess I lost something in the translation…
    …from my eyes to my head.

    Forget my first rejoinder. :oops:
    Though I stand by my remainder. 😛

    A little poetic license…
