TacRac: Not that it's a big deal but I think the quote coding on your last post is a little messed up.

That was just a joke... guess you missed it.

Question... what happened to the intelligent, easy to talk to person I private messaged regarding one of your pictures? Seems there are either two people using your account or you have a multi-personality disorder.

DavePAL and i became good friends on account of a similar incident on another forum. we wouldn't have gotten to know each other if we hadn't argued so much.

i just have a hair trigger on this issue i guess....i wont take it personally if you don't.

i'm ready to bury the hatchet and ex-fil from this thread.

(edit) maybe if you had to come to your elementary school and routinely find spray-painted swastikas and broken windows, you might understand where i'm coming from...and that was just from kindergarten to 5th grade. i won't get into the rest of my life experience.

I apologize as well as I should have known and shouldn't have posted the word Jew with an asterisks, should of just stated that I have a slight dislike for the Middle East because of years of constant conflict.

I kind of figured you had a hair trigger on this issue based on your picture in another thread. Like I said my sister lived in Israel and I surely do not hate my sister nor the generous family she lived with during her education.

Back on topic... What is the long term possible ramifications of this in a preparedness stand point? Israel attack on Iran because of this (hypothetical)? Russia does not support Israel in this and currently the United States relations with Russia are strained, especially after the Georgian incident. Could this boil over to something larger than many currently see or prepare for?

back on topic:
what do you think of Ayatollah Ali Khameini calling for Muslims to stand up and defend Palestinians against Israel. i keep hearing (but nothing official) that Iran is getting into this situation as well. plus we all know what Ahmadinejad thinks of Israel.

tacrac: unless the US is going to going to get involved, i don't think there is really anything to prepare for at this point.

Sadly, yes.

Ann Arbor, Michigan...one of the most liberal places in the region and a city with a high Jewish population. if that shit can happen in a liberal place like where I live, I can't see it being uncommon across the rest of the country.

there are people who to this day still protest outside of synagogues in Ann Arbor, on account of Israel's policies. that makes absolutely no sense. one has nothing to do with the other.

Yeah, and I really doubt that would happen right now. We're, for all intents and purposes, between presidents and the US military's already fighting on multiple fronts.

Iran has been in this situation for a long time now. They have financially aided Hamas for years as well as supported them with military training and weapons if sources are accurate.

Well from my experience liberals are the most hateful. The intolerance of the tolerant.

check out the website http://www.aaspurn.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


Jewish prayers should be disrupted: "You pray for genocide!"
i should also mention that i went to a Hebrew/Jewish Elementary school that was located in a temple and was later moved to a Jewish community center...both locations were vandalized quite often when i was a student there.

you probably already assumed it was a Hebrew school tho.

My guess would be some members of the large neo-nazi population in Detroit.

yeah, they're lib-tards.

i wasn't trying to connect the protests and vandalism either. the two events were almost a couple decades apart and have nothing to do with one another.

back on topic whenever.....

Would Israel risk a full out war with Hamas?

Is Hamas as powerful as Hezbollah, in which Israel tried to defeat, until they realized that their casualties would be too great?

I do not doubt Israel's intelligence, in fact they have one of the best intelligence records if I recall.

What I am worried about is the United States entering into all of this... I know the Jewish lobby has warned against Mr. Obama's election but his focuses are more on the economy and not this conflict so much. Maybe his advisers might push him to take a leap and aid Israel militarily. If so that would most likely bring in Iran and Russia... hopefully not China.

I'm not sure Obama would get that involved, at least that quickly. I'm sure Bush is just going through the usual motions right now, with the goal of letting Obama deal with the rest of it when he takes office in a few days. And Obama is probably already planning for that.

Israel has stated that their aim is to utterly destroy HAMAS if they do not capitulate.


Most Israelis (along with everyone else) see 2006 as a failure.... especially after the prisoner-trade. if they go all out they cannot fail. However, HAMAS' police and fighters only number in the tens of thousands. Hezbollah is a much more powerful organization, there isn't much of a comparison.

I think its kick ass that Israel arms their people, its an interesting conflict, where does Egypt stand in all this?
I heard some rumor a while ago, actually no, think I read it in the WSJ that a leader in Egypt was making some serious anti-semitic comments. Is there a possibility they will become involved?
