Funny how war crimes hearings are looking more and more likely to the extent that Netanyahu has asked US lawyers to defend Israel on court.
As for your bigotry, you do not even know what you are talking about
The only war crimes involved in this conflict are by Hamas.

That's what muslims do. That's their reason to exist.

Israel has shown incredible restraint, and superb humanitarianism.

Netanyahu should get the Nobel Prize for Peace.

Hold your breath till Israel is convicted of something.

Israel is going to have to occupy Gaza. The Palestinian Authority has proven they can’t govern the people. Israel is going to have to annex the whole damn area. I feel sorry for the victims on both sides especially the children. But Israel has no choice but to take it over and bring peace to the region.

On another subject, what a freaking mess Iraq has turned out to be. ISIS are a bunch of thugs and it just makes me mad what they are doing to the Kurds. This is why we need to keep and bear arms in the United States. If the Kurds had been armed they wouldn’t have been a easy target.

It’s been one botched decision after another from the State Department. I didn’t want us to get into a war with Iraq the second time but Saddam didn’t help matters. He would still be in power if he had mislead the UN inspectors. It looks like we are going to have to stay in the region.

We should close down some of our European bases and just make a permanent base in Afghanistan and the same in Iraq. We will have to do what Israel is going to have to do in Gaza, take it over.

From the examples in your comments it is obvious you do not understand a thing about evolution and yet you seem to relish parading your ignorance so others can see it. You remind me of people who still believe the Earth is flat. The fundamental characteristic of ignorance is being unaware of one's own ignorance.

You seem to believe that USA has the right to take whatever land it wishes from around the world and make bases out ot them as it pleases. And just where did you get this idea? And you still wonder why most people from around the world dislike, or downright hate good ol' USA? How would you feel if China did just that in Hawaii or Alaska?

So true.. the religious fail miserably as they have no evidence, but tons of zeitgeist.

I enjoy the rants of those who believe in these superstitions because they are unintentionally funny, and entirely too obtuse to understand.

"Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived."
~Isaac Asimov

I have asked these two questions repeatedly - no one has ever answered them and the reason is obvious...

Stump a theist!

Ask them WHY they believe in gods, in particular the Christian one.

Consult your clergy, ask this and report back to this forum the answer you received.

Ask your clergy for evidence that proves your God is the one true God in a way that religions other than yours cannot do.

Ask your clergy for evidence that proves your holy book aka The Bible is true in a way that religions other than yours cannot do with their alleged Holy Book(s).

"God is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance."

You post as if you have experience. I disagree in that you have no clue on where, what or why "Hell" exists - if it does.

Please provide your link that substantiates your claim that "Hell is horrible".
- claiming such nonsense to cause reaction and fear is not really helping others overcome personal difficulty.

Please be specific with your citation, and be sure to include the person you are quoting.

Who taught you this?

"If any man come to me, and HATE not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple".--Luke 14:26

You realize that your god is actually a sadistic cretin who enjoys peeping on people in hell, it really pisses Satan off. That's because God won't let him look at the 72 virgins in paradise.

Thank you for sharing your mythology...

I have a question for Atheist.
When someone close to you such as a family member or close friend dies suddenly why bother grieving?
Do you grieve when your grass is cut?
If you are an Atheist there’s no difference between cut grass and the loss of a loved one. Both are cut down in the prime of their life. Both have no afterlife according to Atheist.
In order for people to grieve they must have loved. And love is a religious term and experience. Atheist experience natural selection and natural lust but not love because they don’t believe in love.
If you’re a family member of an Atheist or married to one. It’s nice to know that you aren’t loved and never were loved. If you suddenly and unexpectedly die it’s also uplifting to know that you’re no more than a blade of grass that has been cut down to wither away.
Atheist can’t love and Atheist can’t grieve unless of course they’re really not Atheist.
Your comment?
This has to be the most stupid reply on Topix. You must live on a different planet from the rest of us. Why do you Christians grieve, since you think the dead are moving on to be with god? Shouldn't you be celebrating? Shouldn't you just commit suicide so you can be with them and god?

As an atheist, I grieve because I will never see my loved one again. And don't you dare insult another human by saying they are no more than grass clippings. Love did not begin with Christians. Love is universal on this planet no matter your religion or lack of one.

You are just the most ignorant out of bunch.

US film and stage actress Lauren Bacall has died at the age of 89.

Her Hollywood career spanned seven decades, with a memorable debut aged 19 opposite her future husband, Humphrey Bogart, in To Have and Have Not.

More than 50 years later, The Mirror Has Two Faces earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award nomination.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1924, she went on to become one of cinema's biggest stars, best known for her husky voice and smouldering looks.

A Twitter account of the Bogart estate, run by Bacall's son, tweeted: "With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall."

She reportedly died after suffering a major stroke at home in New York.

Bacall was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2009 in recognition of "her central place in the golden age of motion pictures".
