Mie is a gorgeous prefecture and somewhere I have often contemplated relocating to. One of the defining points of Mie is the friendliness of its people. Maybe that's something that the mayor can sell. That and the gorgeous nature and delicious food that exists there.

From what I can see, trickle down economics means that the rich piss on everyone else.

The Abenomics recipe is to devalue the yen, making everyone poorer, but the weaker yen does boost the value of export oriented stocks so owners get some compensation.

Overall I think it’s a silly recipe.

NO argument there.

So does that mean we all get some monetary compensation? I'm not holding my breath.

Posted in: The Japanese look at the West and see that mass immigration is hardly helping ailing economies like Britain, France, and Germany. Japan's national cohesion also makes for a very liveable and safe country, unlike Germany or the UK. See in context

Immigration is an area rich in fear mongering and muck racking.

Exactly! The west is what it is because of immigration. And as someone who lives in Japan with a good job, a house with a garden and 2 cars, I'd HAPPILY drop all of that and move to Canada in a HEARTBEAT if I could with my family.

We need to add more people and end the right of veto in the U.N., because it is not possible for a country alone to be able to veto the approval of something approved by all members,” 

Well said, the world needs more leaders like Lula.

I'll second that!!

Current system is not fit for purpose. 1 country can veto the will of the majority.

Exactly! The answer is very simple. Get rid of the UN Security Council and the veto. All countries and all votes should be equal. The UN is undemocratic due to the veto and we all know that 1 country with a veto can cancel a resolution the whole world wants. This makes the UN, as Seigi said, a big joke. Get rid of the veto and security council and allow equality among nation states with ALL UN resolutions to be binding.

And now after "Operation Amalek" they'll discover that they won't be able to guarantee their own security themselves, either. Israel has lost the right and will one day lose the ability to exist as a racist ethno-state for anyone who call themselves "Jews".

Exactly.

Posted in: U.N. agency says it can't deliver aid to northern Gaza because of chaos, and famine fears are rising See in context

3 names! Let's look at the millions of displaced civilians in the mess of a country Syria. How many names care about that?

Many do. And you are still a newcomer here zibala, so you were not present here 4-5 years ago when I myself was calling on the international community to remove Assad. But unlike YOU, I apply the same standards to all dicators.

Or the 50,000 children killed in Yemen. Is that a genocide?

I would say so. But who committed that genocide? Saudi Arabia. The SAME country that wanted until recently to normalize relations with Israel. I guess birds of a genocide feather flock together.

This Gaza situation is a minor conflict that Israel is easily handling by itself, with minimum civilian casualties.

BS. The ICJ has ruled it a genocide. 15 out of 17 Judges.

You start a war, there's going to be death. Simple fact.

Exactly! And THAT'S why there are many saying that this will spell the end of Israel.

Move on.

I'll be here waiting to rebuttal whatever GARBAGE you want to post

Those who imagine the end of Israel have always wanted the end of Israel.

So now Israeli Jews want the end of Israel? Do you see how ridiculous your discourse has become?

The whole world is basically against the Israeli government and its heinous actions. Even the future king of England, Prince William has spoken out against the massacre that is going on.

Latest news is that Spain and Ireland are considering severing ties with Israel and Brazilian President Lula likened what's happening in Gaza to the Holocaust.

Posted in: Gaza Health Ministry says over 29,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel-Hamas war See in context

Im actually really curious when people make statements like this. Do you believe that all Israelis should be kicked out and the entirety of the land be given back to the Palestinians? What is a just solution?

This is a very valid question and should require an answer. I'm going to give you my personal opinion on this. You probably won't agree with it, but since you asked a sincere question, I'm going to give you a sincere answer.

One state with the right of return for all Palestinians. For those that can provide proof that their homes were taken away should have their homes and land returned to them. For the Jews that have to relocate because of that, THEY TOO MUST be compensated with a different piece of land as big as or bigger than the one they have to forfeit. For the rest, they can remain where they are. The settlements can remain as long as they were not build on land stolen from the Palestinians. One country for all Jews, Christians, and Muslims with all enjoying equal rights. That is my opinion.

Again, many here may not agree but that is my 2 cents. You asked an earnest question. I figured you deserved an honest answer- regardless of what you think of it.

I wonder if there is a level of death and destruction in Gaza that the Israel supporters, within and without, would ever find abhorrent or inexcusable?

Doubt it.

If none, well, it is becoming clearer where the bottom is.

Biden doesn't want a ceasefire and neither does Blinken. They are quite happy to watch the Genocide go on.
