in the PBS documentary called the 50 years war, it said that the six day war killed fifteen thousand Arabs. curious where you got the 70000 figure?
That was over the 4 major wars, not just 6dw.
So, they kick Palestinians off their farms, bulldoze their houses and kick them out of their homeland and slaughter them without any military force? But they need nuclear weaponry, because everyone in the region wants to annihilate them.
This is again a narrative that simply never happened in large scale, so sure why not.
The majority of Israeli land (that wasn't bought, the HUGE majority of current Israel) was gained during the multiple wars the Arab League declared against them with the sole purpose of killing every Jew and pushing them back into the ocean (off of land they 95% legally acquired before 48). If 4 countries invade you at the same time, I honestly feel you have the right to keep some of the land you won while defending and pushing them back, especially since they otherwise faced no consequences from the international community. That seems more than fair in reparation towards having an entire region gang up on you to kill you because you were of a different race and religion.
Oh, and that land that was taken?... yeaaaaah, most of that has been returned...
Could you please tell me, how does Israel gain land without using any military force or US support?
I never said they didn't gain land without military force, I said they didn't do the majority of it through using their military to run off unarmed farmers and civilians from their land; the majority of it was gained after being invaded by a collation of Arab forces. As for US support, they had already won their first war against an ethnic cleansing.
Are you really sure what you feel about this?
Pretty sure, yeah. I am not one for arguing against historical truths, the historical truth in this case being that the Arab League invaded Israel multiple times with the single goal of carrying out an ethnic cleansing.
I have never seen so much bullshit in one place.
Sorry I annoyed you by making you see all the 'bullshit' of just how many ethnic cleansing wars the Arab League carried out against Israel. Kinda makes the whole narrative of Israel being the big bad bully look pretty silly, like saying the Bosnians who fought against Slobodan Milosevic were the bullies and Milosevic the victim...
AND other have been there what?
Let's see... the majority of them, 3-4 generations. The Arab League sponsored huge numbers of families to move into the legal land that they had acquired, and later promised families that they could keep the land they took from the Jews in 48'. The region before both Jewish and Arab immigration, which there was alot of following the are being left by the English and French, was very... VERY sparsely populated.
Of course, the Arab League then refused to let them regain their citizenship when the war was over, and let's not forget the hundreds of thousands of Israel who came into the country because the Arab League countries began killing their communities that had been in Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, etc. for hundreds, some over a thousand, of years... but those refugees don't fit the anti-Israel agenda, so who cares that there were mass killings going on in the Muslim countries towards Jews?
yeah, Israel has nothing to do with a crusade, and our evidence is that they are not talking about it openly.
Oh, right... I forgot that time when Israel and... uh... um... Israel teamed up against Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Morocco, Egypt, Iran to an extent)... invaded their countries and said, "The whole reason we are doing this is to bury every last Arab in the desert, to leave their bodies rotting in the streets of Mecca and Medina and Rabat and Baghdad and Amman for the dogs to eat".
That sure was a terrible time in Israeli history when they did that... 4 times...
What the fuck are you talking about really?
The hypocrisy of this statement is astounding, considering my posts were backed up by historical events, yours... eh... well...
Israel is a Zionist military dictatorship
I wouldn't go so far as to say military dictatorship, but I would agree that the current government is Zionist run (the party use to be classified as a terrorist organization, so I feel they have no right to be elected) and shows little sign of stopping Israel's crimes. However I would argue that their main weapon against the Palestinians now is settlements and segregation rather than military power outright.
What sort of people make up the Israeli military who, when seeing a child's face look out of a window,. they blow the child's brains out. If you.watch that pbs doc I mentioned you will see Israeli soldiers talk about being ordered to throw a grenaded through the window of each Palestinian house.
Same type of people who make up any other military; you follow that order, or you yourself end up with a bullet in the back of the head of the rest of your life in jail.
To counter; what sort of people hide behind those same kids to shoot at Israelis, that strap bombs to those kids and send them onto crowded buses, that hide in those houses and launch rockets across the border?
