Yeah, that’s inconsistent with your previous claim. Administering a territory for the benefit of its inhabitants (which is legally what the British claimed to be doing) is not making the natives tenants rather than owners, nor does it grant ownership by conquest.



The conquest of the previous owners sure did though.

Since you brought up the Brits were "Administering a territory for the benefit of it's inhabitants"  (which is not quite what it said, but still) what was the other half of the Dual Mandate again?  Britain was supposed to "provide administrative advice and assistance by a Mandatory until such time as they are able to stand alone" and what else again?  Starts with a "B" and ends with "declaration".

It's also worth noting that Mandatory Palestine was the only Class A Mandate in the world that couldn't get it's *expletive deleted*it together and "stand alone" before WWII.

Nothing in there is inconsistant with my previous claim that "Palestine" as an Arab nation has never existed.

The assumption you’re making is that there was some continuous presence there that somehow became Israel. Unless you accept the bible as authority, there is absolutely no such presence.
I would agree that there was no continuous Jewish government entity that became Israel.  Likewise, there was no continuous Palestinian government entity that could become Palestine.

There has been, however a continuous Jewish and non-Jewish presence in Israel for thousands of years.

So you accept the Palestinians right to keep their home, you just don’t accept their tactics?
Which specific Palestinians are we talking about?  And which "home" are they keeping?

Do I like the regular use of terror attacks - funded and encouraged by people with no interest in the wellbeing of the Palestinian people - to further the Palestinian cause?  No.

If your neighbours used terrorism to resist a Mexican takeover, I suppose you’d be out there condemning them and offering up your home out of shame?
No more than you have given up your house out of shame for how its land was taken from previous owners.

Jews who were forced out of the US allied gulf states definitely should have the right to return to their homelands.
Do they?

They are not and never have been a significant fraction of the Israeli population, which is almost entirely European immigrants within a single generation (including Russia).
;/  No.  Yes, Europeans made up the majority of immigrants, but hundreds of thousands of early immigrants were Jews that had been expelled by Muslim nations.  The Russian immigrants largely came post-USSR.

You’ve made a conclusion about Israeli land claims which is directly contradictory to your own views about your rights.
What, praytell, are my conclusions about Israeli land claims and my own views about rights?

While I know I'm a broken record on the subject - this guy will get up to 4 years for killing someone. What are those 06JAN sentences again?

Update on one of Hamas's guests

Kidnapped Shani Louk is dead, her family announces, after 'bone from the base of her skull' is found three weeks after she was abducted by Hamas terrorists and paraded on the back of a truck
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-12687753/Kidnapped-Shani-Louk-dead-family-announces-three-weeks-abducted-Hamas-terrorists-Nova-festival-paraded-truck.html

Reportedly her body has been found.
Not sure how this meshes with the report above, maybe the bone from the back of her skull was blown out from her execution.

IDF find the body of Israeli hostage Shani Louk - seven months after she was paraded semi-naked in the back of a truck by Hamas in images that horrified the world

Your post is nothing more than a propogandist assault on impoverished natives everywhere.

As penance I'm going on a hunger strike and chant From The River To the Sea until 17:00 or until my food heats up in the microwave, whichever comes first.
But hey! I'm got it at 50% power so it going to take while, like maybe 8 minutes or so, but I'm starving until then!

Yep
But the below article is not too happy with this particular one's IDF past and even before this current mess started there were those trying to get her canceled over it. Article is from 2017

The Iranians are missing their president
Site has not been reached yet and they're not even sure crash is the right word yet as the article does says some communications has been established with others on the flight so could be nothing

State media is reporting the helicopter had to make a  "hard landing" but reportedly they still have yet to locate the helicopter

I wonder if in this case, "hard landing" is a euphemism for "flying into a mountainside in the fog"?
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Written by a Pakistani. Pakistan is well-known as a bastion of human rights and religious freedom, so I guess we should take that article seriously.

Didn't even notice that as I was just posting that as an example of what I've seen since she got famous playing WW. Seen several articles posted trying to cancel her over her IDF past coming out of lefty media well before this current mess started.

And they still haven't found him.

Supposedly the helicopter he was in.
Looks a Bell 214B maybe

Edit: Maybe a 412
Edit Edit: Just found a photo of a Iranian helicopter with that exact paint scheme and it's says a 412 used by the Iranian Government

I remember someone (Salon?) was roasting her a few years ago because Wonder Woman had shave armpits.  Basically, she's Israeli so they look for things to be pissed about because progressives are by-and-large anti-Semites.
