05. So you are giving me a “self check list” of finding who is threat to peace? It is comparing one local street corner toughie against a “Big Mafia Leader”!!
- A nation which launches attacks and destroys factories and industry in other countries,
- the one who “routinely issues warning” that its shall any country in the region if they try to be “too powerful”,
- whose army and police “routinely” demolish houses and townships for making “rooms” for new comers.
- Killing men, women and children and infants are whose every day activities.
- Assiasnation of leaders of enemy by open and secret are every day activities.
How it can be compared with those “poor chaps” who blow themselves up and kill only a handful, and who only fire “rudimentary” and outdated rockets into enemy territory.
They and these professional killers are no match at all.
How can we compare a street corner toughie against a Big Gang Mafia and one who has Blind Support of a Big Game Daddy!!
Your list is exagerated. For example, infants dont get killed on a "daily" basis...assination of leaders isnt just done by Israel etc etc...

The point is that you stated that Israelis were nutty and that the Palestinians were not. There is NOTHING in my original list of Palestinian nuttines that you can refute with a straight face. Nada.

So you sympathize with suicide bombers? I thought you had morals?

Doesnt add to the discussion
Zionism is a part of the religion, it predates the current conflict by about 3000 years. Its in the Jewish prayers which are at least that old. The notion that Zionism started in the 1880s is not accurate. Its been around a few thousand years BEFORE Mohammed.
I disagree Frijoles .
As a jewish person , I know that the zionists used the jewish people for the benefit of the anglo american empire .
The word "zion" is in the bible but not zionism .
Most of the jewish leaders and jewish communities are against zionism .
Zionists has tried to create a modern non jewish state like other western countries .
Rabbi Kook compared between Benjamin Zeev Herzel and Adolf Hitler :
"While Hitler killed jews phisicaly , Herzel killed the jewish spirit" .

Don't get me wrong ,
I think the jewish people should live in Israel and defend themselves but the tie you make between Judaism and Zionism is about 150 years old .

You better search about Herzel who was a proud antisemite .
He has tried to take all of his jewish community and bring them into christianity with a huge ceremony with the pope .
He also didn't circumcise his son .

As a jew , I HATE him !

I am not sure what you referring to, its not Zionism - perhaps you are referring to the extreme right wing of the settler movement?

Look at the liturgy. There are references to yearning for Jerusalem and unity throughout. Shemona Esrie, tehillim, etc etc. What is the last pronouncement of Neila?

There are ultra-orthodox who do not recognize the state of israel. That is not the majority of the Jewish people.

Much (but not all) anti-Zionism from the nonJewish population is just a smokescreen for anti-semitism, in my experience and opinion.

As usual, looks as though we're discusssing semantics.

Depends on what you mean by "Zionism."

"Zionism as an organized movement is generally considered to have been fathered by Theodor Herzl in 1897; however the history of Zionism began earlier and related to Judaism and Jewish history. The Hovevei Zion, or the Lovers of Zion, were responsible for the creation of 20 new Jewish settlements in Palestine between 1870 and 1897.[1]"

Totally.

Within Israel there are many distinctions within Zionism as a political party as well. i.e. many types of zionist political parties.

But to a Jew in the diaspora - Zionism is Judaism by definition. Has to be. You can't seperate the idea from the practice of the religion. So if you are going to differentiate it, it leads to suspician of motives. When an Arab tells me that are just against Zionism not Jews, it is a codeword.

Semantics is what propells our conversations here!

Though an important distinction would be whether it is semantics, or if the gentleman comes from one of those movements that doesnt recognize the state he lives in. Could be either. But I welcome new blood. I doubt he will respond, it is almost Shabat there now.

Most of us find it offensive and impolite.

Reminds me of the birthers.

The could never accept the 'otherness' of our president.

Though they wouldn't admit the reason.

They dress it up in code language aka dog whistle politics.

HughBe---Oh, so you believe in a Sentient, Intelligent, Lawmaker etc., very good.

Former--Not in the religious sense.

HughBe-- In what sense do you believe it?

HughBe-- I have NEVER seen atoms vibrating on their own and making anyone, a bird or anything. Have you seen such a thing?

Former--You compare science with religion. Do you know what the scientific method is? Can religion stand up to testing?

HughBe-- Concentrate and answer my question.

Former--So ANYONE you speak to in your mind exists?

HughBe--- ANYONE= any person. So YES.


Former--So you do make room for other religions and other beliefs?

HughBe--- yes

Former--Do you respect the views of others?

HughBe-- I respect the RIGHTS of others to have their own views on things.

Former---I rejected Christianity as a young man.

HughBe--- the folly of youth

Former--See question above.

HughBe-- Again, the folly of youth.

Former--Ever heard the expression "There are no atheists in foxholes"??

HughBe--- No but learn this, there are atheists in the other world.


HughBe-- it is in the quality or lack therteof.Man-made ones tend to be BS.

Former--I've asked you at least 3 times...
How do you distinguish between what it man-made and what is god made??

HughBe-- If I were you I would not have confidence in my numeracy skills. I shall now repeat "Man-made ones tend to be BS." Plus I accept the account of the Jewish people. THINK before you open your mouth again.

Former--Has a man ever spoken any truth at all? MLK perhaps? Ghandi?

HughBe--- surely yes, even you have occasionally.


Former--The Jewish people told you man went to the moon?

HughBe--- quit smoking, that thing

Former--Now you compare religion with history?

HughBe--- I gather than in your mind they are mutually exclusive. Correct that nonsense NOW.

HughBe--- Again, Do you hold a view as to how man came into existence? If yes, prove your belief
No I do not.

Former--Unknown and likely unknowable.

HughBe--- what CS is that? Again, do you hold a view as to how man came into existence?

HughBe-- It most certainly one measure of superiority. Functionality is also important. A dead stick is just that USELESS. Did the INTELLIGENCE comment miss you?

Former--Would your god agree with this?

HughBe--- God is SPIRIT. Dick size is of the flesh and so NO.

Former--The Nazis thought those with blue eyes and blonde hair were superior. Traits one has no control over. Do you also believe this?

HughBe--- What a STUPID question.I don't have "blue eyes and blonde hair " so how could I believe that BS especially since I don't regard nobody as superior to me?

Are you in love with the Nazis? what orifice did you dig it out of before you injected it into the conversation?

Are you an American? Are Americans Nazis? In our lifetime hundreds of millions of whites in your country held the view that they were SUPERIOR to your blacks. Chances are YOU also felt so at some point in your life.

YOU must pay attention to your words. My response is based on what you actually wrote.

Former--I thought you didn't believe in reincarnation.

HughBe---I do believe in it and that is why I promised him that I would kiss his tush when I am reincarnated 3 times. All he needs to do is wait and don't get too excited because his great anticipation will make him explode on himself.

Feelings and/or consciousness

When you step on an ant, do you hear it complain?
You ascribe certainty to your own senses?
Are your senses a necessary condition for assessing certainty?

No Mr. Hugh Be,
Just identifying Corrupt and NUTTY is not the end of matter, it is just the beginning!!
Why are you running away from discussion?
On the other hand I see that you carry on “endless and perpetual discussions” with other people?
Why double standards, might I ask?
MUQ---I know NUTTY and CORRUPT men are the problem

HughBe--- Thank you MUQ for understanding the issue. Case closed.

MUQ--No Mr. Hugh Be,Just identifying Corrupt and NUTTY is not the end of matter, it is just the beginning!!

HughBe--- Certainly identifying the problem cannot be the solution to it but it is the FIRST step.

MUQ--Why are you running away from discussion?

HughBe--- I'm not

MUQ---On the other hand I see that you carry on “endless and perpetual discussions” with other people?

HUghBe--There is no double standard. The thing is some other posters communicate more often with me for a variety of reasons including ATTACKING my views. As a result there are more frequent and greater exchanges with them and also greater familiarity which makes me feel free to ask them anything.

Take my boy Frijoles, just recently I asked him about his DREAMS the fellow did not answer. He was too shy it seems.
