It could be the Israeli- Palestinian issue will come to a head soon and be resolved, after the majority in the area are wiped out. It looks to me like Israel has boxed itself in and is losing the support of everyone, even the USA. It's never ending lies and genocidal actions, do nothing for it's representation and we may see Iran Syria and Russia take on the jews.

It's an inevitable outcome, the timing is the one obscure link to Israels demise, but it is getting very close. When it happens, we may see the entire middle east blow up in a nuclear confrontation. It will be israel who will probably be the first to use nukes, they have the no ethics or rationale, just ideological insanity and the quicker it happens, the quicker the planet will return to some form of sanity.

Ok, so I've watched the video.

First, I agree that the West bank settlements are a barrier to peace.

Second, the journalist isn't clear on whether he thinks Israel is an apartheid state, but he was leaning toward it not being one.

Do you think that Israel is an apartheid state?

Miss the part where Fisk said it was irrelevant what you call it?

After he had properly defined apartheid and stated that technically, Israel qualifies?

Ok, so I'm willing to concede that he said it was.

Now, I've taken the time to watch your video. Would you do me the courtesy of watching all of the ones I've posted, and then comment respectively. Note the final video.

Genocidal actions?? Evidence.

Funny that you didn't mention that Iran has threatened to exterminate Israel.

I fear, once again, you have not properly considered what has been put to you.

I have told you; i watched the first few minutes of the first video. I found it pitched uncomfortably beneath the standard of information on the issue that i have already consumed. Furthermore, i found it offensively erroeous.

I posted an interview with arguably one of the most knowledgeable Middle Eastern chroniclers of some years that addressed every point raised in the video from you and threw them out the window.

Now you want to quibble about whether the word apartheid is valid? After i have already hinted strongly that i consider that irrelevant? As did Fisk? It's like spending your energy on the wrong thing man.

You get really caught up on labels, Augie. At the expense of examination into what the labels are covering.

Palestine, is a growing example.

Iran wiping our israel sounds good to me, if they try, we may see two moronic deranged religious states wiped out and it couldn't come fast enough for the planets future.

Could you please reiterate 'what' has been put to me?

Please elaborate on both points. And how was it 'offensively' erroneous?

Please list the respective points and how they 'throw them out of the window'.

So, what? Apartheid is just an absolutist term for 'discrimination'?? Apartheid symbolises something more than just the institutionalised oppression of a minority?? What about the word 'fascist'?? Can I just throw that term around about someone who disagrees with me?

Labels are important, Mothra. You seem to be caught up on labels like 'superior' and 'inferior' (when in actual fact they were absolutist expressions of good and bad), but now you don't seem so caught up on it??

Is it intellectually honest for me to call you a communist just because you hold some left-wing views?

Terms are important, and apparently need clarification.

When you say 'genocide' are you referring to the actual definition of genocide as perpetrated by the Nazis (and earlier by the Ottomans), or are you simply just using the word to refer to the killing of innocent civilians??

Don't forget that an important part of genocide is the 'systematic murder of a group of people based on their race, ethnicity or nation'. Can you cite relevant examples of the 'systemization' of such murder??

What's the difference if you're wiping out a certain community with the aim of taking over, that's genocide in my opinion. As for the christian Nazi's, you need to do a bit of study and if so, yo may find that those behind the forced removal and extermination of jews and others who didn't fit into the christian nazi plans, is no different to any other genocidal action.

How many historical example do you want, or do you have a short memory for convenience. Lest start close to home, with the genocide attempts round Aus and in particular the almost complete genocide of Tasmanian indigenous. Then there was the Maori's, Africans, Sth Americans, North Americans and Canadian Indians, Next we have the Japanese attempts against the chinese. Today we have the jews determined to wipe out Palestinians, Turkeys attempts to wipe out Kurds and the Rohyngas, being wiped out by Buddhists and the chinese attempts to wipe out various ethic groups within the borders. The list is endless and all carried out by religious ideological nutters.

Terms are only important if you rely upon semantic interpretations to make your point, because you have nothing else to support it.

Ok, you're right, let's not get caught up in semantics here.

You forgot to mention about how Palestinians have been sending suicide bombers to Israel, and killing innocent civilians? Or how the Arab nations in the 60s invaded Israel with the aim of wiping out the Jews.

I'm not saying that the State of Israel is perfect, and they have committed war crimes, but the Palestinians also have their fair share of blood of innocents on their hands. What I'm saying is that to compare Israel's treatment of Palestinians as being akin to the Holocaust is intellectually dishonest, and frankly diminishes the severity and suffering of the Holocaust.

Let's get a little perspective here, shall we?

Yes, and the Africans committed genocide on each other, didn't they? What about the warring tribes of North America? Or the Chinese kingdoms at various stages of its history? Yes, everyone's been killing each other since the year dot. So, what now? Let's change the definition of murder to genocide???
