people often believe they have no power and so surrender control

[-] 3 points by GirlFriday (21785) 3 months ago

I agree. Too, I think that for some, just as it is here, they just don't care. There is always going to be that population that would rather do something else. For many of them though I think it's an ideological struggle. For many others they just do not know what rights that they do have-similar to our own society. It makes it really hard because this isn't a society that you can go in and say "don't vote, it doesn't matter." They are already there and it really, really does matter.

By Noam Chomsky, www.Chomsky.info – 16 Aug 2013 …..The Israeli-Palestinian peace talks beginning in Jerusalem proceed within a framework of assumptions that merit careful thought. One prevailing assumption is that there are two options: either a two-state settlement will be reached, or there will be a “shift to a nearly inevitable outcome of the one remaining reality — a state ‘from the sea to the river’,” an outcome posing “an immediate existential threat of the erasure of the identity of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state” because of what is termed “the demographic problem,” a future Palestinian majority in the single state. This particular formulation is by former Israeli Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) chief Yuval Diskin, but the basic assumptions are near universal in political commentary and scholarship. They are, however, crucially incomplete. There is a third option, the most realistic one: Israel will carry forward its current policies with full U.S. economic, military, and diplomatic support, sprinkled with some mild phrases of disapproval. The policies are quite clear. Their roots go back to the 1967 war and they have been pursued with particular dedication since the Oslo Accords of September 1993. The Accords determined that Gaza and the West Bank are an indivisible territorial entity. Israel and the U.S. moved at once to separate them, which means that any autonomy Palestinians might gain in the West Bank will have no direct access to the outside world. A second step was to carry forward the creation of a vastly expanded Greater Jerusalem, incorporating it within Israel, as its capital. This is in direct violation of Security Council orders and is a serious blow to any hope for a viable Palestinian entity. A corridor to the east of the new Greater Jerusalem incorporates the settler town of Ma’aleh Adumim, established in the 1970s but built primarily after the Oslo Accords, virtually bisecting the West Bank. Corridors to the north including other settler towns divide what is to remain under some degree of Palestinian control — “Bantustans,” as they were called by one of the main architects of the policy, Ariel Sharon, in a reference to the territory set aside for black South Africans during the apartheid era. Meanwhile Israel is incorporating the territory on the Israeli side of the “separation wall” cutting through the West Bank, taking arable land and water resources and Palestinian villages. Included are the settlement blocs that “will remain part of Israel in any possible future peace agreement,” as stated by Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev as the current negotiations were announced. The International Court of Justice ruled that all of this is illegal, and the Security Council had already ruled that all of the settlements are illegal. The U.S. joined the world in accepting that conclusion in the early years of the occupation. But under Ronald Reagan, the position was changed to “harmful to peace,” and Barack Obama has weakened it further to “not helpful to peace.”

[-] -2 points by GirlFriday (21785) 3 months ago

I am taking Massimo D'Alema's claim that Ariel Sharon said anything remotely close to Bantustans about as seriously as I am taking Nelson Mandela ‘received weapons training’ from Mossad. Not at all. I'm going to need some verification with that. Hold the cheese.

Further, you do realize that Sharon was pro settlement for years and years. Then he did an about face and orchestrated the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza, in 2005. In fact, he dismantled four settlements in the West Bank and all of the ones in Gaza, like Kfar Darom. Had he not had the second stroke, he may very well have initiated a unilateral withdrawal from most of West Bank.

Ma’aleh Adumim was actually agreed to by the PA during the Clinton Peace plan.

Let me show you something.

Part of the peace process is the release of 106 Pals. They have murdered someone. This is why they were in prison.

"The High Court of Justice rejected a petition late Tuesday night by the Almagor Terror Victims Association to block the second round of Palestinian prisoner releases scheduled for the same night as part of the ongoing Israeli- Palestinian peace talks.

The petitioners also claimed that some of the prisoners due to be released violated the government’s own standards and were due to be released in error, as they had committed their crimes post-Oslo. One of the principles of the current prisoner release has been to release only prisoners whose crimes were committed pre-Oslo.

The state responded that the defining date for the government’s determination was not the 1993 signing of the Declaration of Principles which started the ball rolling on Oslo, but a 1994 agreement which formalized the 1993 framework, and that all of the crimes came before the 1994 signing.

The petitioners also claimed that the first round of prisoner releases was responsible for a recent uptick in terror emanating from the West Bank, and argued for a delay of the release until the issue could be further scrutinized.

The state responded that security issues and commitments to the US required the release to go forward Tuesday night as planned. link

So, many people are pissed and what does Netanyahu do? Netanyahu to advance east Jerusalem construction as 'compensation' for prisoner release

They don't want that. They want the people that murdered their families locked up.

[-] 7 points by flip (5001) 3 months ago

are you saying that the Palestinians in Israeli jails are murders? what I am reading is that since 1967 600,000 Palestinians have been held in Israeli jails. I am sure some of them are murderers but let's be real here. first of all it is not a crime to kill a soldier in occupied territory - not sure how that applies to settlers. here a small sample of the crimes of the settlers and the idf and how they are treated. - "Merely to mention one of innumerable cases, shortly before the outbreak of the Intifada a Palestinian girl, Intissar al-Atar, was shot and killed in a schoolyard by a resident of a nearby Jewish settlement. He was one of the several thousand Israelis settlers brought to Gaza in violation of international law and protected by a huge army presence, taking over much of the land and scarce water of the Strip and living “lavishly in twenty-two settlements in the midst of 1.4 million destitute Palestinians,” as the crime is described by Israeli scholar Avi Raz. The murderer of the schoolgirl, Shimon Yifrah, was arrested, but quickly released on bail when the Court determined that “the offense is not severe enough” to warrant detention. The judge commented that Yifrah only intended to shock the girl by firing his gun at her in a schoolyard, not to kill her, so “this is not a case of a criminal person who has to be punished, deterred, and taught a lesson by imprisoning him.” Yifrah was given a 7-month suspended sentence, while settlers in the courtroom broke out in song and dance. And the usual silence reigned. After all, it is routine. As Yifrah was freed, the Israeli press reported that an army patrol fired into the yard of a school for boys aged 6 to 12 in a West Bank refugee camp, wounding five children, allegedly intending only “to shock them.” There were no charges, and the event again attracted no attention. It was just another episode in the program of “illiteracy as punishment,” the Israeli press reported, including the closing of schools, use of gas bombs, beating of students with rifle butts, barring of medical aid for victims; and beyond the schools a reign of more severe brutality, becoming even more savage during the Intifada, under the orders of Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin, another admired dove ....and as for the war criminal Sharon - wow now he is a peace maker - I won't go into his criminal record just leave you with a bit from noam on gaza - " The US and Israel have been acting in tandem to extend and deepen the occupation. Take the situation in Gaza. After its formal withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005, Israel never relinquished its total control over the territory, often described as "the world's largest prison".

In January 2006, Palestine had an election that was recognised as free and fair by international observers. Palestinians, however, voted "the wrong way", electing Hamas. Instantly, the US and Israel intensified their assault against Gazans as punishment for this misdeed. The facts and the reasoning were not concealed; rather, they were published alongside reverential commentary on Washington's dedication to democracy. The US-backed Israeli assault against the Gazans has only intensified since, in the form of savage violence and economic strangulation. After Israel's 2008-2009 assault, Gaza has become a virtually unliveable place.

It cannot be stressed too often that Israel had no credible pretext for its attack on Gaza, with full US support and illegally using US weapons. Popular opinion asserts the contrary, claiming that Israel was acting in self-defence. That is utterly unsustainable, in light of Israel's flat rejection of peaceful means that were readily available, as Israel and its US partner in crime knew very well.

Full stop. Are you denying that the 106 being released are not murderers?

[-] 6 points by flip (5001) 3 months ago

I would like to say that if you answer my questions I will answer yours - but I won't! really not trying to pick a fight here. this all started when I wondered about your position on the middle east since I had agreed with you on every subject up until that point.. I do not know who they are releasing or why - you may be right that they keep the non violent types because they are the real problem. the u.s. government does much the same. what I do know is how this terrible mess started and why - go back and read about the kissenger Rodgers debate during Nixon's time. also read "the fateful triangle" if you want to be serious. I also know that I do not like brutal occupying armies - especially when they do their work with my government money and support. what Israel does to the Palestinians cannot be justified by any true reading of the facts - there are only two countries in the world where this debate goes on in such a sad and nonsensical way. we live in one of them. the invasions of Lebanon were another terrible crime by our government and Israel - while I am not a great fan of Hezbollah I was happy to see them drive out the Israelis. we don't need to go on but now I am wondering what your position is on iran?? siding with our criminal government again?

[-] -2 points by GirlFriday (21785) 3 months ago

Like those released in August in the first of four stages, all had been given life sentences for attacks that took the lives of Israeli citizens.

Are you denying that the 106 being released are not murderers?

[-] 5 points by flip (5001) 3 months ago

did you read what I wrote? does this sound like a denial to you - I do not know who they are releasing or why? now how about you answering a question - those released - did they take the lives of Israeli soldiers in occupied territory? I do not know and do not care about who was released or why. I do care to know what your deal is - why so fired up here?

no you did not and I do not have ample time. we don't need to continue. i still don't know at all what you think about this whole mess. it sounds like you support the government of Israel wholeheartedly - that would surprise me. my wife is jewish - we rarely talk about Israel because it is painful for her. she has trouble looking at the reality of the violence there. in the same way she has trouble with looking at the violence and flaws of the Obama administration. we can however talk about what an asshole rand paul is!

[-] -1 points by GirlFriday (21785) 3 months ago

I gave you enough information to either read on the murderers released, the peace deal and you could have done your own research. You chose not to. That is not my problem. That is yours.

[-] 2 points by flip (5001) 3 months ago

correct but that was not my question - where do you stand on the issue of peace in the middle east. do you stand with the government of Israel? that was my question and yours was do I deny that they were murders - I answered it. not sure why you are being so crabby - simple question - as I said from the beginning I did not mean to annoy you - seems I have - as you say that is not my problem.

release the murderers for peace

violence is all those people understand

[-] -3 points by GirlFriday (21785) 3 months ago

The problem here is the pretense of these people. There is no whole group operating as one. There is no whole group operating as one in Israel. And, no, violence is not all they understand.

The thing that needs to be understood is that you have two competing political groups: PA and Hamas and they have massive ego problems and both are scamming money and both aren't capable of getting their shit together to make progress. Then you have Palestinians that just want to live life without a bunch of bs. You aren't going to find a unified whole group in Israel either. You have Arab Israelis that get along perfectly fine with Jewish Israelis and Atheist Israelis and then you have these uber right wing Jewish groups.

Identify the problems, resolve the issues.

[-] -3 points by GirlFriday (21785) 3 months ago

Because the goal was to kill Israelis. They are regarded as heros.

Had the orchestrator not had the stroke there would have been a withdrawal from the West Bank as well.

"Apartheid" is simply the Afrikaans word for segregation, separate, or apart. So, of course it applies in the case of Israel because it matters not where segregation takes place, be it 1930's U.S., South Africa or Israel. Segregation is segregation.

Here is the Oxford English Dictionary definition:

apartheid SECOND EDITION 1989

({schwa}{sm}p{fata}{lm}the{shti}t) [Afrikaans, lit. ‘separateness’, f. Du. apart (ad. F. à part APART adv.) + heid -HOOD.]

"Name given in South Africa to the segregation of the inhabitants of European descent from the non-European (Coloured or mixed, Bantu, Indian, etc.); applied also to any similar movement elsewhere; also, to other forms of racial separation (social, educational, etc.)"

Do you think we treat the hungry any differently here in the U.S.? Seems you like to shed light on the UK quite often. It's interesting that you do that.

Actually, I think the definition of apartheid is far reaching and can be applied to economic situations but mainly apartheid seems to mean physical separateness, so being forced to live within a certain boundary or being forbidden to enter certain spaces. I do, however, think a broader definition is possible.

[-] -3 points by shooz (26679) 3 months ago

The bottom line is that both of the "peoples" are considered Semites.

Oh, and please don't put words in my mouth.

I did not say what you accused me of, nor did I accuse you of anything.

I merely asked for clarification of the definition YOU provided.

I point out issues in parts of the World and the US, that more often than not, are ignored by people that claim to live there.

I will not stop doing that on the basis your attempt to insult me and/or insinuate otherwise.

In fact it now begs the question of where do you live?

Oh and what's your definition of the provided "event" in the UK?

Although the article doesn't say, it's my belief that most of those going unfed in the UK are "brown skinned", and that would make it an apartheid action, according to the definition you provided.

More of a baiting accusation, than an actual comment.

Unlike so many here, I'm proud to shed light where ever I can.

Perhaps you're correct in your belief on who's going hungry in the UK, at this point, I'm unable to find definitive information on that.

There are those among us who should already know.

One has to wonder why that information isn't forthcoming.

(EDIT)

Further investigation, would appear to confirm my suspicions.
