These days, I let most of ETH's flatulence disperse with the prevailing wind, but THIS ONE I've GOT to respond to. Mostly because its disproven by the Great Mouthpiece of Conservatism, the great Swami, the incomparable Maha Rushi, Rush Limbaugh. To wit -

It all happened during Rush's present "All Israel, All The Time" 3 hour long broadcast. Limbaugh, who's head is so far up Sharones rectum he prolly can see daylight coming from Sharone's ever-open mouth, was absolutely fawning over Shimone Perez, the way a 7th grade schoolgirl fawns over a Back Street Boys poster. You see, Perez, who Rush made it seem was of more excellent moral charachter than our current President, or possibly even Ronaldus Maximus, was giving Rush the "guided propaganda tour" of Israeli settlements in teh West bank. Then it happened. A moment of unusual candor, perhaps even unintentional candor. A brief glimpse of the truth, said once, and never repeated. Yet of IMMEASURABLE significance. From the mouth of the Rush-ster himself. Muffled NOT by Sharones rectal cavity. Here's what Rush said - ALL the Israelis living in the West Bank (who live in VERY respectable homes, mind you, MUCH more respectable than their Palestinian counterparts) are......R U ready for this????? I mean REALLY ready???? [b]They are ALL either active military, or active reservists. And they are ALL armed, in their homes, with fully automatic weapons[/b] Do you see the significance??? In effect, Israel has a military base right in the West Bank. Isn't a military base a "legitimate target?" For the willfully blind, let me explain what SHOULD be obvious.
Link Posted: 4/22/2002 11:55:14 AM EDT
(con't) Given that the palestinains are NOT the sharpest tools in the shed (What can you say about someone who beleives you get 77 virgins for blowing yourself up with a bomb??? No Einsteins in that bunch) its EASY to see how they would mistake ALL Israelis for military personnel. When teh ONLY Israelis you EVER see are ACTIVE MILITARY, and are occuppying you beleive to be your land, wouldn't you think that ALL Israeli homes, businesses (which are staffed with armed Israeli military) , all targets are legitimate??? Eric the(SelfProclaimedVoiceofReason)Hun claims that "all of the Israelis that have been killed by such terrorists were 'innocent.' " Well, seems Rush Limbaugh, the Great Israeli defender, in a moment candor, proved Eric WRONG. These are Israeli MILITARY personnel in the West Bank. And given the simple-mindedness of the Palestinians, its EASY to see how they would beleive ALL Israelis are military personnel, since that is the ONLY kind of Israelis they EVER see. Now I'll grant that bombing teenagers at a disco is a bit over the top, but WHO REALLY put those teens at risk?? Isn't it the Israeli parents who moved into a war zone, AS ACTIVE MILITARY, ARMED like military personnel, cashing paychecks from teh Israeli gov't, who bear PART of teh responsibility for putting their own children in danger??? Isn't it???? Its ironic really. The isrealis are ALWAYS accusing the palestinians of hiding among civilians. I won't dispute that. But the Israelis ALSO hide among the civilians - THEIR OWN CHILDREN.

So, you've got an AR or Garand or some sort of rifle suitable for military use, and you are a member of the militia. It says so right in the Constitution. Are you a legitimate target for terrorists?
Link Posted: 4/22/2002 11:56:55 AM EDT
Whenever an Israeli soldier or policeman is killed or injured, he's been identified as such. You really don't pay any attention to things that conflict with your own views, do you. Soldiers have to live somewhere. That doesn't make their houses & families either a military base or a legitimate target of soldiers. Terorists, sure. Everybody's a target. That's one diffeence between them & us.

They do NOT have to live in the West Bank. They CHOOSE to, by virtue of their choice to be active military. And I'll bet if the truth be told, they are GIVEN those very respectable homes as a perk, in addition to their combat pay, and military pay. I beleive Rush said as much, but can't say that unequivocally. EVERONE KNOWS the West Bank is a war zone. Yet they choose to bring their families onto what can ONLY be described as a de facto military base, in homes ARMED by the Israeli military, putting them in harms way. Like I say, the Israelis are HIDING BEHIND their OWN children, then crying foul when one of them gets killed. And you NEVER hear THAT in the news. NEVER.

There are 300,000 illegal Israeli settlers in the Palestinian Occupied territories. Today Sharon announced the illegal settlers would not be removed as the part of any peace negotiations. Today the head of the Palestinians Security Forces announced he would not be able to work with the IDF because of the recent sea of blood. So today both Arafat and Sharon have announced there will not be peace. So long as the Muslim countries continue to fund Arafat and the United States continues to fund Israel there will be no peace. My position has long been that neither Israelis nor Palestinians can afford peace.

I don't have any disgust for the Israelis or Palestines, or the talking heads that take their wierd points of view. I'm disgusted that WE take any sides with these SOBs and support any of them with money and weapons. Coin operated peace is not free. These folks need to pay for their own freedom to truly be free.

They can fight to the last Israeli or Palestinian and I don't particularly care so long as the fight is not sponsored by U.S. taxpayer money. There will be peace when the United States tells the Israelis not one more U.S. dollar will we pay until there is peace and when the Muslim nations tell Arafat the same thing.

I agree. We, the USA , are the problem. Rush does say one thing I agree with. Peace will only come after TOTAL victory. One side had to beat the other side into submission. EVERY peace resolution of a military dispute was settled by an UNCONDITIONAL surrender. My point is get ALL the US dollars out of the equation FROM BOTH SIDES and let them settle this they way men settle things - by all out war. Afghanistan is a PERFECT example of what WILL happen between the US and israel. We, the USA, created Usama bin Laden. But eventually, he got fed up with US intervention, and turned on us like the radib dog that he is. Any ANY nation will eventually turn on us - once we outlive our usefulness to them, and tire of our interference. As will Israel. All of human history is littered with bitten hands that use to feed other nations.

I will agree with you on 1 point. That is that the Israeli Civilians should not being moving into the West Bank. The children of Israeli soldiers are not legitimate targets. They are innocent victims. I believe that occasionaly Paliscum do kill soldiers. But, this is rare in ratio to the number of civilians (Men, Women, and Children) they kill everyday. Killing a soldier on duty is a valid military action. Killing his kids, wife, etc...is an act of Terrorism. Also, an off duty reservist is not a target. All the men in the WTC were militia according to the Militia Act. But, would you consider them legitimate targets ? Reservists/Militia are only legitimate targets when they are on active duty as in fighting. I believe that technically every Israeli man and woman is a reservist under their laws. Hell, I have heard tell that some of our own politicians are considered IDF Reservists by the Israeli Government because they are Israelis between xx and xx years of age. As for them being armed. I own several guns, yet I do not consider myself to be a legitimate target. Should war break out and we are invaded, I will fight back. Then, and only then will I become a legitimate target.

Y'all BOTH need to pay "Atencio-n" [}:D] TWICE, in the thread opener, I already addressed this item. the Israelis that the palestinians live amongst in the West Bank are ALL active military. The Israelis themselves think so little of their children to put them in a war zone. If you were a Palestinian, and the ONLY Israeli you ever saw was active military, wouldn't you think that ALL Israelis are military?? I realize you'll answer "No" to this to get you off the hook, buy in the simple-minded mindset of a Palestinian, this is EXACTLY how I suspect the mental (and I do mean "mental" ) process goes. Compound that with the FACT that the ONLY effective means of conducting war is via homicide bombing (which I am NOT justifying) and you get EXACTLY what you have in Israel / Palestine today.

Garandman is a total joke. he should take his ignorant self to Gaza and see how long he lasts there. There are over 30 arab states in the Middle East. Israel deserves to be there, as a single non arab state, including the so called "occupied territory". The Palestinians have lost their right to life by keeping Arafat in power. All Palestinians are a viable target. The "children" this idiot attempts to defend are brainwashed from childhood to kill. I would have no problem at all sighting in on a 13 year old Palestinian when he points his AK at me. Yes it is a brutal, ugly situation. But you have to keep in mind these sub-human Palestinians have bred their offspring to be homicide bombers. There are no innocent Palestinians. The Palestinians have had more than enough chances to join the civilized world. They instead chose to be and support terrorism. Therefore they have NO RIGHT TO LIFE. Plain and simple. This is good versus evil. There can be no middle ground. Death to Arafat, death to the Palestinians. Garandmans religious drivel and support of the Palestinians is borderline domestic terrorism. He should be banned from this board once and for all. GB has said more than once to lay off the religious bable. He refuses to. It is time for Garndman to go fight with his Palestinian brothers and leave us TRUE Americans alone.

In my Western sensibilities (which Eric claims are NON-EXISTANT [}:D] ) I too have a problem with "killing kids." But "killing kids" in this region of the world has been par for the course for some 5,000 years. And you know what?? The Israelis started it. Yup. Old Testament. If anything, Arabs have L-O-N-G memories.
Also, an off duty reservist is not a target. All the men in the WTC were militia according to the Militia Act. But, would you consider them legitimate targets ? Reservists/Militia are only legitimate targets when they are on active duty as in fighting. I believe that technically every Israeli man and woman is a reservist under their laws.

I find it logically incongruous to try to claim to be "militia" but then to try to claim to ne NOT a legitimate military target while you are IN A WAR ZONE. Put this in a 1776 context, Lexington, Mass. Try telling the Red Coats you are militia, armed, and commissioned by a lawful act of your goverment as part of the armed militia, but that you are NOT a legitimate military target. Its laughable. Isrealis are, by your own admission, armed by their gov't and living is a war zone. THAT is the very defintion of a legitimate target.

What's funny is West Bank belonged to Jordan not long ago. Everyone who lives in the West Bank is poor or works in Israel. Israel comprises about 1% of the land in the Middle East and the Arabs on the remaining 99% want to destroy it. Palestinians never had an independent country. At best they were a province under a ruling authority (Rome, British, and now Israel). If Palestinians were half as smart as our Native Americans they would build casinos and get rich instead of blowing them selves up. My 2 cents. Shok

I should have said terrorist attacks instead of suicide ones in the west bank. I can find only one mention of possible suicide attack. As far as terrorism attacks in the west bank: From BBC-News-MiddleEast Earlier on Friday, two Israelis were killed after their car came under attack near the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba on the outskirts of Hebron in the West Bank. One of them - Rina Didursky, a teacher and mother of six - died soon afterwards. The drive-by shooting took place on Friday evening in an area where Palestinians have carried out similar attacks in the past. The Israeli motorist was overtaken by a vehicle carrying gunmen on the Atarot bypass road. Israeli media said he was sprayed with automatic weapons and died on the spot. Initial reports had described him as a settler. Earlier on Friday a suspected suicide bomber was shot dead at the West Bank settlement of Efrat. He was thought to have been on the point of detonating explosives in a supermarket when he was killed by a shopper. The son of a right-wing Jewish extremist and his wife have been killed in an attack on their car in the West Bank. Binyamin Zeev Kahane, the son of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane, died when Palestinian gunmen fired on his car near Ramallah. Israeli F-16 warplanes have gone into action over Gaza and the West Bank, hours after at least 10 people were killed in a Palestinian attack on an bus at a Jewish settlement. Two bombs were dropped near the compound of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, and the radar tower at Gaza's international airport was hit. It is not yet clear whether there were casualties or what damage was done; Mr Arafat himself is at present in his Ramallah residence. Arafat was not in Gaza during the Israeli raid Planes also struck a helicopter pad belonging to Mr Arafat in the West Bank city of Nablus. The Palestinian Authority said it had ordered the immediate closure of Hamas and Islamic Jihad institutions including education, health and political offices in response to the attack on the bus at the Emmanuel settlement in the West Bank. In Gaza: For the residents of the Gush Katif settlement bloc that dominates the southern coast of the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian attacks on settlers in the West Bank and Gaza on Wednesday are further proof that trying to make peace with the Palestinians is pointless. Gush Katif is the name given to a massive, consolidated area of illegal settlements that is home to 7,500 Jewish settlers. It is a regular target of attack. In Garandmans defense: But a Palestinian minister, Hassan Asfour, said that Palestinians regarded settlements and their occupants as instruments of Israeli occupation because many of them were armed.

DITTO! Let them kill each other in the open plains of the desert. Let them all kill each other. Let them burn with their sacred cow sacrements. Just don't bring the goddamn battle to my soil. At that point they will all be a bunch of dead mo-fo's regardless whether they bow to Allah or Yaweh. I do understand garandman's point about the Palestinians being as smart as a soggy Cornflake and thinking that all Israeli settlers are military. But I also remember some eager beaver militants in the 60s who envied the richly developed land the Jews had worked so hard to develop while they themselves were still living as nomads in the desert. I remember an aggressive military action in which Arabs attempted to take Israeli land by force and were soundly defeated. I remember Israel taking back their land and then some for good measure. Now the Palestinians want it back. Well if their memories are so good, then they should remember why they got their asses kicked to begin with.
