Wake up
Israel's "brutally disproportionate and grossly indiscriminate" bombardment of Gaza must be regarded as a war crime, Labour former deputy prime minister John Prescott said.

Lord Prescott said any other country would be made an international "pariah" if it acted in the same way, as the reported death toll from the offensive against Hamas reached four figures.

And he directly compared the situation in Gaza with a concentration camp, suggesting the Nazi Holocaust should "give Israelis a unique sense of perspective and empathy with the victims of a ghetto".

There is no such thing as proportionate response to terrorism. Hamas is committing war crimes and is a designated terrorist org

Please advise what a proportionate response is.

You want Israel to infiltrate Gaza and deliberately murder women and children?

Lord Prescott is an idiot just like you. Palestinians are at best second class citizens throughout the Arab world. Rather than matriculate the refugees Arabs perpetuate their misery by forcing them to live in...wait for it...refugee camps which bear a striking resemblance to...anyone? Anyone? That's right, ghettos. They are not allowed to own land or in most cases practice their professions or participate in government. They are pawns of the Arab nation which uses them as a wedge in Israel's door.

Where was Lord Prescott while 2,275 Palestinians were being murdered by their Muslim brothers in Syria? Were they firing thousands of rockets into Homs or tunneling their suicide bombers into Muadamyat? No, they were killed simply because they were there and people like you don't consider it a tragedy at all when Muslims kill other Muslims. Don't let the door hit you on your way out you stuttering jackwagon.

good article TRD ... one I even dare let my left wing friends read .. lol
another huge demonstration apparently in London today ... I shall avoid it - I "ran into" them last weekend when I was out shopping - and I was utterly depressed the rest of the weekend - they were screaming allahu akbar and "kill the jews" .. useless creatures .. what on earth do they hope to achieve?
I was thinking of going home to get my Star of David to put it on .. but then thought .. nah, I have too much life left ... too much I wanna do (such as taking the bus to New York from London the long way around)...:))
I hope you are well .. shall go out in the great sunshine now and enjoy lunch with friends by the river (Thames)- outside London though ...

Oh and saw the Lego story the other day ... not sure now whether it was you or VoP - Lego is of course danish and made up of 2 words "Leg Godt" .. meaning "play well" -- and I believe they were banned as unislamic in several countries after the "Cartoongate" affair -- just like Danish pastries were still imported - frozen - but were called "Rose of Mohammed" ...
dear God, I can't imagine living anywhere in which, in today's day and age, people gathered in large masses to shout about how they wish death on someone(s)...anyone. That is WAAAY too much hate for my buds. In America, freedom of speech means freedom to say whatever you like as long as you're not threatening their lives. Pretty much that's what the book says

Sovereignty coming too late in her lifetime for her to ever get a chance to look back; one last time feeling the wind run through her hair as she danced in the fields of wheat...

But of course, all I had to do was read on to snap right out of it. When in Rome, TRD. That which is surrounded by shit eventually turns to...ah forget it. You're no different.
Yes, you're right. Abbas was only fulfilling my request when forming a unity government with Hamas. I have always said it didn't make sense for Israel to try to make peace with the PA while Palestinians were divided. Half a peace is no peace at all. Hamas however, never fulfilled their end of the bargain as it pertains to moderating to at least the level of the PA. They shook hands promising to recognize Israel and abandon violence but it never happened and THEN everyone returned to Rome.

Meanwhile, the only contribution I made in that post besides sharing the Brookings article were the words "Don't blink", so yes again, I'm no different than before...still posting thought-provoking material from credible sources along with accurate (if not prescient) commentary and zero tolerance of cross-border rocket fire and terrorist tunnels.

Somehow, it will come and somehow, she will know.

Don't tell anyone but I wish Pumbaa was here. He was right all along and I owe him an apology.

During Operation Protective Edge, the IDF has been using various methods to damage the Hamas terror tunnel network, including both filling and detonating the tunnels. Methods are selected on a case-by-case basis and based on different operational considerations. The IDF has continued to employ various methods to neutralize Hamas terror tunnels during the humanitarian ceasefire.

Below please find a video of a tunnel detonated last night.

Have you been looking?

If you tilt your head and squint your eyes you can see underground linear parks where the population can safely take refuge while their Hamas leadership slowly commits suicide. Oh wait...my bad...only Hamas ever gets to play in these parks.

We don have to look at the Protocols of Zion to realise that Zionists see everyone who is a Non jew as a "goy" or cattle whom they can abuse,cheat and con without obtaining the wrath of god.One simply have to look in the Holy book that Zionists hold dear the "Talmud" to find all these gems.If only every non jew would read this they will understand what zionists think of them why they are are so spineless,gutless and cruel.

I'll have to take this up at the next Elders meeting.

However, you do understand the Protocols is a forgery and fake. But then again every ant-semite knows that.

Scirocco. I always thought the Protocols to be a fake but the more i look at world events today and how it fits in with what i read in the Protocols the more i am beginning to believe it might be the truth.After all, the test of truth is when everything comes to pass that is written in the book.
As for the Talmudic scripture dont bother to ask the Elders,simply find a copy and read it or maybe you have already. Maybe the truth is to difficult to bear.
