Why not try term limits - say for a decade - see what happens - I think it would be great - it's supposed to be a government for the people and by the people...involve more of the people...I think term limits are a great idea

Posted in: Meta reviewing use of word 'Zionist' amid Israel-Hamas war See in context

with negative connotations you may say:

"woke"

"liberal"

"left"

"trumpism"

Israeli is a nationality

Jew is an enthnism

Zionism is a poltical attitude and can be googled having a long history even engaging with the nazis - that long.

Lord Balfour wanted to create an Israeli state in what was called the British Palestine Mandate (inherited by the British empire at the fall of the Ottoman empire) ...The British courted Zionist groups as they viewed the promise of an "Israel" could make international Zionists as allies to the British empire...

Posted in: Rifts within Israel resurface as war in Gaza drags on See in context

bang on the money Desert. Also - oddly - a tiny fraction of Palestinians with Israeli citizenship who live in Israel proper (not the Palestinian areas...) have a legal right to vote in Israel's elections. I know people who worked for Dr.'s without borders in the Palestinian territories...they tell of horrid and brutal treatment by the Israelis...a Jew in an illegal settlement in the OPT territories - gets 2 years (maybe) for killing a Palestinian - some 12 year old Palestinian kid can get 20 years for throwing a stone at an IDF bastard. would you throw a stone? I would too

Posted in: Women and children are main victims of Gaza war, with 16,000 killed, U.N. says See in context

why does Hamas exist?...it was actually supported by Israel as a) it provided a counter weight to the PLO/PA - an Israeli divide and conquor scheme.

I was George Bush who demanded Hamas be on the Ballot...thinking that it would be a repudiation. (Fatah won more votes, but fielded too many cadidates...so the Hamas candidates won without high vote counts)

Additionally...Israel was "happy" with a terrorist org running Gaza...as it meant Israel would never have to seriously engage in conversations involving a Palestinian State...Zionism 101 as one poster called it.

Hamas are terrorists...but I'd say the Israelis who run a state where a tiny fraction of Palestinians living within that state who do have Israeli citizenship have the legal right to vote - that is called Appartheid...whereas Jews living in illegal sttlements in the OPT can legally vote.

Ironic that Israel was born out of a terrorist entity...displaced some 700,000 Palestinians...murdered and ran-sacked palestinian villiages in 47-48...that Israel is calling foul on Hamas.

Ironic also that it is the ex(reformed) appartheid country S. Africa who brought charges of genocide against Israel at the ICJ.

not a surprise that Israel's arguments were legal technicalities rather than address their war crimes.

Posted in: Fujitsu apologizes to hundreds affected by UK Post Office scandal See in context

well...the only software that doesn't have a bug in it, is software that han't been written yet.

700 post office managers were convicted of theft or fraud.

let's say you are a really stupid prosecutor. Let's say 10 PO managers are convicted. Would you not suppose some sort of collusion? would you not set up some sort of sting operation by posting a battery, cell-phone with a GPS chip set to track them?

Let's say you are the most stupid person on the planet, and you didn't think there could be collusion when 50 people were convicted.

surely, you would conclude, that there must be a more rational explanation.

so while not a QED kind of proof, the conviction of 700 PO managers shows the sheer incompetence of UK investigaros & presecutors. While of course it was ultimately determined to be a SW fault...wouldn't a single investigaor, prosecutor come to realize it had to be something like that?

unbelievable incompetence.

Posted in: How 'laws of war' apply to conflict between Israel and Hamas See in context

"In the case of Gaza, this rule requires that before launching an attack, the Israeli military analyze and determine the likely effect on civilians. If it appears that such an attack will cause disproportionate civilian casualties, then it must be suspended or canceled."

Except if the goal of Israel is (as it has consistently been) the elimination of Palestine and the annexation of all Palestinian land.

Structure is a good thing...

Discipline is a good thing.

I don't thing compulsary military service is a bad thing.

I can go in to down-town Ottawa - there's looser junkie's crafting a career of "spare change?" - in CANADA...I lived in the UK...same...

In Japan...people don't beg for change because charity is not part of their culture...

But if you give it to them...they bow in gratitude...I know...cause I've done it...

Sure...they have problems...

How many would have been better served had they served...

I have nothing but admiration for those who serve or have serve in uniform.

Japan has a significant and formidable military.

I think it's a great option for a young person - I wish I was young.

I wish my youngster would choose to do it...

One of my oldest and dearest friends was a US Marine - 23 years.

He has seen combat (ever seen Black-Hawk Down? - he was there)

I truly regret I never served. I was too busy listening to Led-Zeppelin and

majoring in my GF...not much to be proud about all these years later.

an eye for an eye

When I was a kid...I got beaten up alot...I was not a big kid...but I did have a big mouth...hence the frequency of being beaten up...my dad got tired of it and enrolled me in boxing lessons...some time later - I got into a fight with a much bigger guy...and he did kick my ass...but he sure as hell didn't have a good time doing it...loads of people saw the fight...no one ever messed with me again...

There's only one way to stop a bully...and that's to stand up to them...
