Why of course! And the police, even though able to intervene, is supposed to stand by and whistle while bank robbery (let alone bloody murder) is being perpetrated, wait until the deed is done and then try to arrest somebody. But nevermind.
No. In the case where state-land is in question, you cannot.Here you enumerate allegations of irregularities and abuses, which are known to exist, yet do not prove that as a general rule, settlements were built on land deprived of its private owner, e. g.: stolen.Proof of what claim?Wrong. The tool used was military might, the motivation had to do with some kind of convictions.Not quite. He was arrested after the civil war ended, so him being tried in The Hague played no...
If it's my quoted writing you refer to, no it's not about one single thing. It's about several, I re-quoted it here so you could read it again.What are you talking about, the present trouncing of Hizbullah? Hizbullah sure is insecure.When I hear the tired phrase about anything being everything I don't even bother.
Where were the evil fascist Westerners going to East-Germany and killing people? Are you telling me there were no Palestinian terrorists going into Israel and blowing themlselves away with as many Israelis as they could? The latter are real and the security fence is stopping them and saving lives, but perhaps you couldn't care less.A fool could argue anything. Were there actual “West German fascists” actually killing people in East-Germany, where and when?
It's not that I am ignoring it, it's that I am not caring about the old East-German propaganda. The fact is the Berlin Wall kept East-German civilians from leaving East-Germany, the Israeli security fence keeps Palestinian terrorists from entering Israel and killing, if you cannot grasp that essential difference I cannot do it in your stead.
So to describe it inaccurately as a “wall” even though it is mostly a fence is supposed to give an accurate impression? Just don't let any fact get in the way of your “truth”. And no, that barrier is not mental, it's very physical.Perhaps you didn't notice, but the Berlin Wall was built to prevent East-Germans from getting out, not evil fascist Westerners from getting in (and what would they do in such a dreary place as East-Germany?). The security fence was built to...
The difference is that the word “wall” is used incorrectly, to give it some horrible impression. The fence was built to stop terrorists from blowing up in Israel, a task which at which it is good. Mind you, up until 1987, there were no checkpoints nor fences between Israel and the territories and all could travel freely, the current barriers were only belatedly added (mostly after 2000) as a reaction to the dire situation. Many Israelis are unhappy with the fence, I find...
Ah yes, “the Wall”, have you seen it? I did. Most of it is barb-wire fence, and only a small segment is walled.To be annexed it would need a law from the Knesset to that effect. No such thing.People are exporopriated everywhere to make way for freeways and other construction projects, if the expropriation is not done accroding to due process then it is illegal, can you show it is most usually so?The land belonged to the Ottoman Empire, then to the British-mandated...
Spoken like a true hardline Israeli rightwinger, and just as much lacking in substance.Since you have not demonstrated that as a general rule, settlements were built on land which was not lawfully paid for, your statement doens't stand.I'm more into what ”is” or ”was” than into what ”would be”.I live in a world where international law is of no help where and when in counts, and therefore I have no trust in it, let alone faith. MY experience is based mostly on objective and...
Or so you say.Are you talking about Europeans, who after causing two world wars are too exhausted to fight each other and so are now peaceful by default?Not according to the UN:Do countries surrender their sovereignty at the UN?: “The members of the UN are sovereign nations, and the UN Charter is one of the strongest safeguards of sovereignty, enshrining that principle as one of its central pillars. At the same time, most of the problems the world faces today are of such...
