Fifty years of immoral occupation : Comments

By Alon Ben-Meir, published 7/6/2017

This week the Israeli occupation of the West Bank has reached the milestone of 50 years that will be recalled in shame.

I don't know, Alon,

: if hostile neighbouring countries amass armies on one's borders, the sensible thing would be to get in quick, launch very strong, lightning raids, wipe out their air forces and drive those armies back.

Signs of imminent aggression - and I do recall those times - provide an internationally-recognised reason to strike first. Israel's response to imminent annihilation - and isn't that what it would have been ? - was completely legitimate. In law, they could have driven on to Amman and Cairo and Damascus, disarmed those cities, destroyed their aggressive military equipment, and then retired.

The bottom line in all this is: do Jews have the right to live in Israel/Palestine in peace ? Until the Arabs answer "Yes", then they don't have a moral leg to stand on.

Whereas the Muslim intention of wiping Isreal off the map is 'moral'?

Fifty years of agreements and accords made, then rent asunder. With neither side blameless!

Fifty years or encroaching illegal settlements, all that allows the gerrymander that keeps the current government in power!

What more is there to add, save the rivers of blood that have flowed entirely without necessity or merit during most of that period!

Round and round it goes, where it ends nobody knows?
Monumental megalithic tragedy endlessly repeated perhaps?

Try thorium dear Sara, try thorium dear Sara, try thorium! Then couple it to space age deionisation desalination, dear Sara, and make sure hubby takes note and follows through!

I call on every man and woman of conscience to bring the madness of this debilitating conflict to an end.

Sorry, we cannot.

Israel was found on socialism and Judaism: both have failed in their mission to be a light unto the nations.

My question for you, Alon, is how longer will you still identify with those people?
When does enough become enough?
When do you finally tell them: "YOU NO LONGER DESERVE TO BE MY PEOPLE"?

Tear your shirt, sit on the floor for seven days and mourn, then go about your own life without them!

Dear Joe,

Indeed, the Arabs have no moral leg to stand on -
But that doesn't mean that Israel must shoot its own moral leg!

Yuyutsu,

Israel was built also on the sheer terror of what could happen again, and the grim, lifelong determination that it doesn't. Quite understandable.

So what's the death toll this year, Palestinians and Israelis ? How does that compare to Yemeni or Syrians ? Yazidis killed by ISIS? Nigerians killed by Boko Haram, which I believe is a term in Arabic meaning "Down with Education" (the Left must love that one)? Somalis and Kenyans killed by al-Shabaab ?

Moral legs ? Do you mean that, if a Palestinian run his car into Israeli pedestrians, or runs into a bar stabbing people at random, it is somehow moral for him to do that, to kill random innocents, but that it is therefore immoral to shoot the bastard ?

Mind you, it must be hard to run into a bar, or old people's home, or pre-school, if you've lost both your moral legs :)

Joe
