Wait so is there one poster you think is a Nazi or were you just misspeaking and trying to draw a comparison to the relative lack of support that guy would have? If there is a Nazi poster here I am curious who it is.

No man. One prolific poster was just tossed out to draw the comparison to one person who posts but nobody else will agree with the comment.

Totally sarcastic and satirical. Off the bat ron thought it was him which is well odd but ok.

Do I think ron is a nazi? No. Is there some here who feel the same as the comment made idk.

I tried to give clues but he wont listen. So I toyed with him and still he couldn't go oh man you are joking.

you're giving him a lot of leeway when he literally bolded "hitler didn't kill enough jews" and responded with "i think one prolific poster here will agree. the rest not so much."

 

it is the tired argument that if you believe the indiscriminate targeting of civilians is an objectively bad thing, you're an anti-semite. he just doesn't want to own it because he believes that it chips away at his "free thinking independent" facade that he thinks he has carefully constructed. it is an intellectually dishonest argument made by people who have reached their conclusions without considering the facts and circumstances. he knows how he's supposed to think but he doesn't actually know how to get there himself, ergo those who oppose israeli imperialism are just anti-semitic and there's no reason to explain why. he needs to read dershowitz or something in order to really shore up his mass-murder apologia

Pstall: I have seen people called Nazis (unfairly) for the type of comments Venom and GRP made in this thread, so I took your comment literally at first, too. I am not totally surprised GRP asked the question; he had been a frequent poster in this thread and your post seemed to suggest you thought someone was a Nazi. I didn't think you would think any of the arguments made here constituted support for Nazism so I was just curious, appreciate the clarification tho

I am - I read his post the way you did, too, and also wondered who he could have meant. But while I do get annoyed with his stances sometimes, I didn't think he'd actually accuse you of being a Nazi. As someone not as versed in this subject as others I do appreciate your posts on this subject in general and didn't see anything even vaguely anti-Semitic in your posts. Tired of seeing people falsely accused of that (IRL, not here).

Tbh tho I don't usually agree with your posting tactics I do appreciate your general willingness to bring in sources and your ability to intellectually challenge just about every poster here.

now that we've established that we're not nazis, maariv reported several days ago that hamas offered a 10 year truce so long as israel accepted the following conditions: 

 

 

Withdrawal of Israeli tanks from the Gaza border.

Freeing all the prisoners that were arrested after the killing of the three youths.

Lifting the siege and opening the border crossings to commerce and people.

Establishing an international seaport and airport which would be under U.N. supervision.

Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers.

Internationalizing the Rafah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations.

International forces on the borders.

Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement.

Reestablishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.

 

how many of these requests seem unreasonable as a starting point (presuming that the goal is to work toward peace)?

That government was created largely because of Hamas’s desperation and isolation. The group’s alliance with Syria and Iran was in shambles. Its affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt became a liability after a July 2013 coup replaced an ally, President Mohamed Morsi, with a bitter adversary, Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Hamas’s coffers dried up as General Sisi closed the tunnels that had brought to Gaza the goods and tax revenues on which it depended.

Seeing a region swept by popular protests against leaders who couldn’t provide for their citizens’ basic needs, Hamas opted to give up official control of Gaza rather than risk being overthrown. Despite having won the last elections, in 2006, Hamas decided to transfer formal authority to the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah. That decision led to a reconciliation agreement between Hamas and the Palestine Liberation Organization, on terms set almost entirely by the P.L.O. chairman and Palestinian Authoritypresident, Mahmoud Abbas.

Israel immediately sought to undermine the reconciliation agreement by preventing Hamas leaders and Gaza residents from obtaining the two most essential benefits of the deal: the payment of salaries to 43,000 civil servants who worked for the Hamas government and continue to administer Gaza under the new one, and the easing of the suffocating border closures imposed by Israel and Egypt that bar most Gazans’ passage to the outside world.

Yet, in many ways, the reconciliation government could have served Israel’s interests. It offered Hamas’s political adversaries a foothold in Gaza; it was formed without a single Hamas member; it retained the same Ramallah-based prime minister, deputy prime ministers, finance minister and foreign minister; and, most important, it pledged to comply with the three conditions for Western aid long demanded by America and its European allies: nonviolence, adherence to past agreements and recognition of Israel.

Israel strongly opposed American recognition of the new government, however, and sought to isolate it internationally, seeing any small step toward Palestinian unity as a threat. Israel’s security establishment objects to the strengthening of West Bank-Gaza ties, lest Hamas raise its head in the West Bank. And Israelis who oppose a two-state solution understand that a unified Palestinian leadership is a prerequisite for any lasting peace.

To an outsider who knows little of all of this, it seems very reasonable

As far as the Nazi thing, I might have gone through life never having heard of Stormfront, if not from some Tbox posters.  The things you learn here.....
