slumdogDec. 01, 2012 - 03:30PM JST : Geez, all these history lessons, I am so sick of them. There are two groups of people now that do not get along. Focusing on what may or may not have happened in the past is exactly why there will probably never be a solution to this.

Those two groups of people have a history of not getting along. The past have asmuch to do with the current events which holds the future. Denying the past/history is an affront to both the Jews and the Palestinians.

slumdogDec. 01, 2012 - 02:18PM JST : Perhaps you need to reread Tamarama's post. You don't have to be from the same 'tribe' to be genetically identical.

Maybe you should go back and reread my post again. Was not talking about genetically identical. Tribe was references toward the differences of culture between Jews and the Palestinians which makes up their identity. Both of them are part of the human race.

People all over the world including Jews and Palestinians are genetically identical born into the human race.

TamaramaDec. 01, 2012 - 01:41PM JST : The Jews and Paestinians are, for all intense purposes, genetically identical. They are the same people, from the same place, who developed different religion, language and culture over time. The Palestinians have lived there non-stop from ancient time too.

The Jews and the Palestinians are not from the same tribe. You can make a case that due to some intermarriages between the two cultures there are off springs that are Jewish Palestinians/ Palestinians Jewish, European Jews, American Jews, or Russian Jews etc.

Israel on Friday approved the construction of 3,000 homes in Jewish settlements on Israeli-occupied lands, a government official said, drawing swift condemnation from the Palestinians a day after their successful U.N. recognition bid.

Needs clarification. Why can't Israel build homes there?

Which parts of lands do the Palestinians consider belongs to the state of Palestine?

zichiNov. 30, 2012 - 10:14AM JST : America voted against the motion which makes it position very clear.

It's called politics. At the Democrat Presidential convention of 2012 the party decides to take out God and Jerusalem. The party only added that back due to Republican criticism.

The USA voted against it, but that does not mean that the USA will stand up for Israel. The support from Israel have shifted. The countries that voted for a Palestine state recognized that change.

JimizoNov. 30, 2012 - 09:56AM JST : A promising development. America's one-dimensional view of this issue and unequivocal support for Israel, no matter what the excesses, has been a moral disgrace for decades. They are becoming more and more isolated on this issue - now embarrassingly so.

The USA did not come out and spoke support to stand with Israel. According to USA U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said, “Today’s unfortunate and counterproductive resolution places further obstacles in the path peace,” Rice did not state support for Israel instead she commented about it. The USA wanted to be the broker for peace and she lost that to the UN. The UN have more authority than the USA.

<The resolution upgrading the Palestinians’ status to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations was approved by a more than two-thirds majority of the 193-member world body — a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions.

One sigificant point is that the USA have lost her influences in the world stage.

Posted in: Obama, Romney to have lunch at White House on Thursday See in context

People can thumbs down the previous comments, but it does not change some factors.

Romney have some great ideas. That's why Obama wants to talk to Romney. Otherwise, Obama wouldn't be calling on Romney for lunch. Even the mainstream media who supports Obama can see that.

The second post is base on Obama spent his first term as President blaming Bush and the Republicans.

The third post is about Obama building his legacy -self grandiose.

The reason the USA did not get involved in the African countries is because the USA does not see them as a threat until China got involved. The same thing with the SE Asian countires, no peep from the USA until China expanded her military power on the sea.

Romney should keep his ideas to himself because Obama will blame Romney if it does not perform. If it performs Obama will take all the credit for it. Obama did the same thing to Bush. Blame Bush for all his problems.

Posted in: Syria rebels win support from Britain, battle in Damascus See in context

TamaramaNov. 21, 2012 - 07:36PM JST : It is also, I have to say, quite amusing and not just a little ironic that the pro-Assad posters here do so from the comfort of their warm and comfy democratic home base. Wiht their computer, and freedom of speech. If Mr Assad's style of government is so appealing, I'm sure they would be happy to have you folks. Just leave those things at the door on the way in.

Who are the pro-Assad on JT? Just giving assessments on the issue does not equate to supporting Assad. The West install Assad and now they want to uninstall him. The West are supporting the rebels who they want to install in Assad place. That's democratic?

Do you really think that the next person after Assad is going to be a better pick? Is the person going to stop doing what Assad and others who once was in power did?

The people of Syria, who will ultimately get to vote for what they want once he has gone, will then get to decide in a democratic way, what they want.

You seem to think that democracy results in happiness for everyone just by voting. Democracy is an irony in itself. There will always be winners and losers.

NS comment was not made under this article. ???

He got half right about the rebels. Some of the rebels are AQ. It was recently that the other rebels who are not AQ joined forces.

Syria: Aleppo declaration raises fear of Al Qaeda-inspired groups joining rebels @ http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/1289708--syrian-islamist-rebels-reject-opposition-coalition-declare-aleppo-islamic-state

Calling it a “foreign project,” the Islamist organizations say they are suspicious of the opposition group, which emerged after the Nov. 11 talks in Doha, Qatar. The National Coalition, which was formed under the guidance of the Gulf Arab countries, Turkey and the U.S., replaces the former political group that had little credibility within Syria.

Again the West and Middle East have their own idea of who should rule Syria after Assad. The AQ have their own idea.

slumdogNov. 21, 2012 - 04:27PM JST : I did not and do not assume anything. Never Submit claimed all of the rebels were both foreign and al-Qaeda. I am just asking for evidence of this.

His full comment was, "The Al Qaeda rebels are certainly causing mayhem across Syria." You quote him on, "The Al Qaeda rebels" He did not claim "all of the rebels were both foreign and al-Qaeda."

His post was the first. Your response to his was the second one.

It is understood that AQ rebels also exists. The other rebels who are not AQ exists too.

Nothing. I never said anything to the contrary. Perhaps you are assuming too much?

It was not an assumption. It was a question.

Syria: Aleppo declaration raises fear of Al Qaeda-inspired groups joining rebels @ http://www.thestar.com/news/world/article/1289708--syrian-islamist-rebels-reject-opposition-coalition-declare-aleppo-islamic-state

Fears of the growing influence of Al Qaeda-inspired groups inside Syria increased Monday with the release of video claiming the embattled city of Aleppo is now an “Islamic state” and that 13 radical factions jointly rejected the country’s new opposition coalition.

slumdogNov. 21, 2012 - 03:56PM JST : While you are at it, please show your evidence that 100% of the rebels are al-Qaeda and foreign.

You assume that "The Al Qaeda rebels" translate to your thinking of "show your evidence that 100% of the rebels are al-Qaeda and foeign." You are putting words into the person mouth. What makes you believe otherwise that some of the rebels and foreigners are not AQ?

slumdogNov. 21, 2012 - 02:39PM JST : How so? There is nothing mentioned here or anywhere about Britain approving of or supporting an Islamic state.

The rebels also received a diplomatic lift with Britain officially recognizing the opposition Syrian National Coalition, set up this month to boost their chances of securing foreign aid and arms, as the Syrian people’s legitimate representative.

Although the rebels have taken large swathes of land, they are almost defenseless against the government’s air force. They have called for an internationally enforced no-fly zone, a measure that helped Libyan rebels overthrow dictator Moammar Gadhafi last year.
