Shalom. Good for Israel. Protect yourself.

More illegal warmongering by Israel

......on land stolen from the Palestinians in 1948, 1967 and through gradual confiscation ever since.

Since when has it been OK to steal land, forcibly evict the inhabitants, label them terrorists and murder them if they resist, etc?

Are you giving others permission to do this to your country.

Modern Israel was created against the will of the Palestinians and has expanded ever since by theft, deceit, lying, ruthless oppression and bloodshed.

May God have mercy on the poor Palestinians.

Sadly, it's how nearly every country was created. Some tend to forget that.

Shalom. Good for Israel. Protect yourself.

And yet, when the people of Palestine try to stand up against the aggressors, they are labelled as less than human.

Disgraceful.

Israel murdered Syrian civilians in response to alleged rocket attacks into the Syrian-owned Golan Heights, which are illegally occupied by Israel. So Israel was only protecting (assuming the rocket attacks were real) their illegal occupation.

Any attack against Israelis in occupied territories is 100% legit in my book.

Exactly.

Israel ought to fight it own wars, they want the US to fight Iran, like Israel were the promoters Iraq ,that resulted in the death of thousands of American in Iraq, Israel cannot win a ground war against Iran, they do not have army or the money

Hard to have sympathy for a group that deliberately targets civilians in their ‘fight for freedom’. When the Palestinians blew up their first shopping mall or outdoor restaurant, they lost their right to be ‘victims’.

Does that include groups such as Irgun?

The zionists will finally get their wish and blow up the Mideast into global war just in time for the malignant Abe to change Article Nine of the Constitution and make Nihon a primary target in the hostilities. Say goodbye to your children and understand whose FAULT it really will be that they die violent deaths, your own for not stopping these monsters. And anyone who would say "Semper fidelis" to pure psychopathy and the potential grisly deaths and dismemberments of thousands of young and dumb Jarhaids is NOT a healthy Human being nor a Marine in any way at all.

Considering it was an underground, unauthorized organization that hasn't existed since 1948 when it was disbanded under the threat of being destroyed by the IDF, that's kind of an irrelevant question. But if they still existed today, no I wouldn't sympathize with them either.

Nice try though.

Is it? You referred to "When the Palestinians blew up their first shopping mall". It would be wrong to say "Israelis committed terrorism" when Irgun and other groups were not representative of all Israelis. Similarly, I think it is wrong to refer to Palestinians in the same way.

Sounds like the Syrians paid too much for the Russian S-400 missile batteries.

You'd have a point, if it wasn't for the fact that, unlike the Irgun, the Palestinian terrorist groups responsible for these acts, like the PLO, are recognized as legitimate by Palestine.

Netanyahu is struggling to hold onto his power. Two failed general elections.

Netanyahu has become a wiggling snake now that he has been charged with criminal actions. First PM to ever be charged. His wife is already convicted.

albeleo, really? Then why do we never see Palestinians protesting / demonstrating against PLO/HAMAS/ etc violence?

Fear, perhaps.
