Time to lighten it up?

TO WHOM DOES THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONG??

An Israeli Sense of Humor at United Nations set the record straight.

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the
United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Israel began: 'Before beginning my talk I want
to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it
brought forth water, he thought, "What a good opportunity to have a
bath!"

Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the
water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished.
A Palestinian had stolen them!

The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and
shouted, "What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren't there
then."

The Israeli representative smiled and said, "And now that we have made
that clear, I will begin my speech."


Pathetic.

It was pretty stupid.

If suddenly a group of people with were found to be descendents of the Canaanites - who should we confiscate land from to give them? Israel, or Palestine?

Because so many people refuse to admit that we make mistakes .

What? It was stupid of me to try to lighten it up around here or the actual content?

As far as your Canaanites question, why should "we" confiscate land from anybody?
Did "we" confiscate the land that Israelites currently occupy known as Israel?

If that's your line of reasoning, then you better move out of Canada for all the land here should be confiscated and given back to the native people.

It was the content. Although somewhat humorous, it was a deliberate shot across the bough. It was a 'they were there first' reminder. Which, of course, they weren't.

And the "we" obviously didn't mean you, me, or people in general.

Who was there first?

Before you answer that, does it really matter?

Exactly. Unfortunately, there are too many of them that fall under this famous Sci Fi quote:

"Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death. "

After all, according to science, they are blood brothers...

Don't call me white, Don't call me white
Don't call me white, Don't call me white

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

Don't call me white, Don't call me white
Don't call me white, Don't call me white

I wasn't brought here, I was born
Circumsized, categorized, allegiance sworn,
Does this mean I have to take such crap
For being fairskinned? No!
I ain't a part of no conspiracy,
I'm not your average Joe.

Don't call me white, Don't call me white
Don't call me white, Don't call me white

Represents everything I hate,
The soap shoved in MY mouth to cleanse the mind
The vast majority of sheep
A buttoned collar, starched and bleached
Constricting veins, the blood flow to the brain slows
They're so Frackin ordinary white

Don't call me white, Don't call me white
Don't call me white, Don't call me white

We're better off this way
Say what you're gonna say
So go ahead and label me
An asshole cause I can
Accept responsibility, for what I've done
But not for who I am


Don't call me white, Don't call me white
Don't call me white, Don't call me white
Don't call me white, Don't call me white

What do you guys think the citizens of the US think about the gaza strip situation?

Do you think the media outlets like Fox and such have portrayed a one sided story supporting Isreal (seeing that the US and Isreal are essentially holding hands)

How do the people of the US perceive the ordeal?



Edit : working on a media ownership paper, trying to determine how quickly opinions could be swayed

US citizens don't have a clue what's going on in Gaza, if any American politician, journalist or academic criticizes Israel, they are mercilessly attacked by bottom feeding jackals like Alan Dershowitz and Abraham Foxman, accused of everything from being an anti Semite to a Nazi sympathizer

Would you then say that media outlets tend to dance around the subject/neglect the topic as a whole to avoid any negative press?

Check out Al Jazeera English and read the comments made on any Jewish political news stories. The most commonly used phrase is, "You're an anti-Semite." or "You're a Palestinian butcher of jewish children. The rhetoric is incredible. I don't believe the US media want anything to do with this as they will inevitably be called anti-Semites by the Zionist lobbies ( there are lots)in Washington.

a bit of both, Israel is allowed to kill, kidnap, torture and maim all the Palestinians they want, destroy property and steal land but if there is any retaliation, the media screams "Terrorist !"
