  • Israel (Score:3, Insightful)

    Israel is the only country in the world that is able to commit so many atrocities without anybody stopping them.

    Israel is the only country in the world that is not at peace with its neighbors in the region. It is also the only country in the world where its neighbors have tried to annihilate them no less than 4 times in 50 years. It is also the only country in the world where a militant, determined, suicidal terrorist group is adamantly trying to deny its right to exist and actively attempts to kill

    • Why should I consider any country in comparison to Israel, just because of countries commit atrocities it does not make it OK for israel to do the same.

      There is a long list of countries that commit atrocities against their own and other people : Burma, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe, Iraq, The Balkans, Russia, China, North Korea.

      Israel is just another of these countries, and I have singled it out because the technical and international communities seem determined to pretend it isn't happening.

      • If the UK had the same attitudes to terrorism it would have continued to escalate after 'the troubles' in the 70's but diplomacy and talking has lead to not only a cease-fire but shared government of the region.

        Someone from Northern Ireland (well educated and I believe well informed) said that the real reason that the IRA moved towards a ceasefire had nothing to do with diplomacy. Instead it was because the loyalist terror groups were killing more Catholics than the the IRA was killing Protestants, and were maintaining this differential, hence any claim that the IRA was trying to make to its supporters that it was "protecting Catholics" was demonstrably false.
