Why? Why have borders?

Are you talking about kids?

FYI: A psychiatrist says the Australian government sought to cover up the extent of mental health problems among children held in asylum detention.

The comments came at a national human rights inquiry into the treatment of children in immigration detention.

His claim came a day after church leaders accused Australia of holding children in "inhumane" conditions.

The government rejected that as "offensive". It says it is working to reduce the number of child detainees.

Dr Peter Young worked for International Health and Mental Services, a provider of health services at detention centres contracted by the government.

He told the Australian Human Rights Commission inquiry that he had collected figures showing "significant" mental health problems among child detainees, according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

P.S. The tip of the iceberg.

Global warming is real and its all my fault. I absolve you of blame, I did it. I'm not going to stop.

If you reduce your greenhouse gas emissions I'll increase mine. Nobody measures carbon dioxide emissions, I've been emitting CO2 since I was born. The more carbon I emit the more fun I have.

I love emitting greenhouse gas more than you want to conserve, tax and drive up the cost of fossil fuel. No matter how expensive gas costs, I'll buy premium because alcohol is for drinking and cars are for driving; they don't mix well.

Play it safe and you'll be emitting carbon dioxide a long, long time.

Israel offered land for peace but when Hamas took Gaza Israel got war. Hamas' charter incorporates genocide of the Jews and the destruction of Israel.

I've been to Israel, Muslims are treated with respect like everyone else. Palestinian territories are under control of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza.

Noam Chomsky is an Israel hater, who has spent a large part of his professional life trying to destroy Israel. Cite, if you have any interest in discussing facts.

Those camps are run by the UN, the rest of Palestine is under Palestinian Authority. They are responsible for the weapons fired from their territory.

I'd like to commend Egypt and Jordan for doing heroic work suppressing terrorism from Palestine, good fences make good neighbors.

Hamas teaches children to hate Jews, nothing like that happens in Israel. I've been to Israel, the people there love peace, just like here. Israel has a democratically elected representative government, Muslims and Christians serving in all branches of government freer than anywhere else in the Middle East.

Don't close yourself in a bubble of hate, go out and see the world, read an Israeli paper and look for the hate, then visit a Palestinian site. Don't be confused by left wing, anti-Israel media and university hacks, go see for yourself.

I recommend Eilat on the Red Sea coast.

Israel occupied Gaza in the 1967 Middle East war and pulled out its troops and settlers in 2005. But it still exercises control over most of Gaza's borders, waters and airspace.

It has imposed tight restrictions on the movement of goods and people, which it says is vital for its own security, but Palestinians say they feel confined and the restrictions are intolerable.

P.S. Countries join in calling Israel a terrorist state. Karma works!

The reason you leftards hate Israel so much and you do hate Israel is plain and simple: people from Israel love capitalism,they are conservative in the way they think and most of all people from Israel are patriotic. and would die for their country.

Israel won the Gaza from Egypt after Egypt attacked them. Israel is responsible for the borders in the absence of a stable and peace loving government in Palestine.

Egypt and Jordan has worked closely with Israel during this war to stop Hamas from importing and exporting terror. Hamas' strategy is to kill as many civilians as possible; they are illegal combatants who don't wear uniforms because they attack from behind civilians.

Don't be a moral fool; the people who hide rockets in schools are the war criminals, not the people who fight them.

They feel sorry for the little guy until Hamas starts murdering homosexuals, throwing acid into the faces of schoolgirls or killing Jews in their hometowns. One sides tolerates individual freedom and cherishes life, the other wants war and genocide. Muslims in Israel are freer than in any other Muslim state.

Don't answer questions with questions. Would you like a free and open border? You know, unlimited free flow of people coming and going. It's not a trick question. Man up!

You nailed it. But then why do a lot of Jews vote Democratic in the USA?

I wonder if they are a bit torn in their feelings.

The same reason blacks and latino's vote dumboRAT.They've been hoodwinked and bamboozled. They have fallen for the scam called demonRAT.

Because the libby propaganda machine says that conservatives hate Jews when in fact it's just the opposite. You'd think that Jewish business owners would have figured it out by no.

"All of the available scientific evidence suggests that greenhouse gas emissions must peak relatively soon and then fall dramatically over the next 50 years, if not sooner, if we are to avoid the most damaging and disruptive aspects of climate change.".. citing the IPCC.

"All"?

More accurately, "All the scientific evidence considered by the IPCC suggests..."

btw, there's no 'questioning' here of conventional wisdom. Just more warmist "settled" "consensus" 'science'.
