But tell me more about how "the Palestinians can engage in resistance".

The US is not a humanitarian country, Misty, it's the current empire causing much death and destruction all over the world. The humanitarian shit on display is minute in comparison.

So let me get this right, your complaining that Palestinians using cameras to non-violently document the crimes of Settlers and the state of Israel is putting the lives of those behind the camera in jeopardy (ether from violence or death)? Yet your OK with acts of terrorism, which also puts the life of those waging that terrorism in jeopardy?
Actually yes I do know the state of Israel has unjustly made such protests illegal.
skinster wrote:Good. So how do you suggest Palestinians can end their oppression since you know the occupation has no plan to end, that Israel never had plans for peace with the Palestinians, etc.?

skinster wrote:False. Israel never had any plans for peace with the people it ethnically-cleansed, except to take all of Palestine, which is exactly what's happening since as time has gone on, Israel has got much bigger than the 55% of the land the Balfour Agreement offered, and today has basically taken control of all of Palestine...so please spare me your hasbara and take a look at the reality on the ground.

skinster wrote:Yes, and that allocation for a "Jewish state" was 55% and 45% for a Palestinian state, but zionists expanded beyond that, taking practically all of Palestine, some of Syria and Lebanon too. The expansion continues since Israel refuses to define its borders. You can make whatever excuse you like for why Israel took all the land, but the reality on the ground dictates Israel is not about peace with its neighbours, but about taking their land while occupying or ethnically-cleansing the people who live(d) there.
