conflict us starting up again. I cannot bear another round of children being killed indiscriminately. The super powers would have you believe that it is all oh so very complicated. its not though is it. It is so bloody unfair how those children will keep dying if the status quo is maintained. Something needs to change.

It's not too complicated. Displaced Jews took land that people were living on already, because they wanted that small piece, even though they had been offered other choices. We let them, and now pretend it's all fine and they should be there. Meanwhile the people who should live on the land are herded into a tiny space, and the people who took their land fire rockets at them and kill their children. Hands up anyone who wouldn't fight back.

More land than was given (not by Palestians) to displaced Jewish people has since been taken, quite a lot more.

It is not hard to see why the conflict has occurred, Palestians have been ghettoised and had their land stolen from them.

Israel wants to protect its people, Palestine wants that too. It also wants some land back, understandably. I am unsure how this issue can ever be resolved, sadly.

It is complicated but let's just keep harking back to 60 odd years ago and how unfair it all was - because that is going to help. And yes if I was Palestinian I would probably hate and fight back. But still they are the ones who are and will continue to suffer way beyond what the Israelis will suffer. So they play a part in forging a better future. By all means let the international community put pressure on the Israelis and hope that Bibi gets kicked out on his arse and the Palestinians vote out Hamas.

<gets popcorn, pulls up benches> This will not end well.

there's nothing like an unbiased view of the situation...

...and that is nothing like an unbiased view of the situation!

Israel does not equal Jews. Palestinian does not equal Muslim.

but yes, it is high time the shooting stopped. And the stabbing, stone throwing and so on of recent days.

What a great subject for aibu.

Makes the site look like a joke!

Ffs.

specialsubject Mon 12-Oct-15 22:20:30

should add my reference was to nigglenaggle

I agree, not best for the trivia part of the site but there's no thread police.

Resolving it? Great idea. I wonder why they've never thought of that before.

ottothedog Mon 12-Oct-15 22:53:10

Yes, its exactly like two naughty schoolkids who need a good telling off and then it will all blow over

Syria next?

hmm

Posted here because there is more tradfic. People are still dying in Gaza and in Israel. The IDF killed a mother and her 2year old daughter in yet another pin pointed operation.

stabbing incidents across the region by palestinians. Settlements continue to be built, settlers continue to destroy Palestinian livelihood, soldiers continue to kill teenage pakestinian boys for throwing stones. so many palestinian children killed in in october so far.

If I was Palestinian, I'd just try to get the hell out of there to be honest. Problem is other other Arab countries don't want want them and very powerful forces in the West are trying to demonise them there (well Muslims as a whole, not just Palestinians) so they get chucked out/waged war upon there too. So where do they go? Palestinians don't have their hands clean either. Not by a long shot. It's all about war on the poor and keeping us all fighting each other so we don't notice who's making off with the loot.

crystalgall Mon 12-Oct-15 23:11:03

AIBU is wrong place for this.

The thread will not go well.

There will be lots of cries of anti-semitism

There will be lots of equating Hamas with Palestinians

There will be lots of equating stone throwing with shooting kids dead (already happened above)

Nobody gives a shiny shit about Palestine because Israel is a US ally.

The conflict will never ever be resolved. Never. Never in our lifetime or the next.

crystalgall Mon 12-Oct-15 23:12:10

I don't know how anyone can imagine themselves in the shoes of a Palestinian mother and not believe that they would fight fight fight their oppressors with whatever they could.

I know. Everyone needs to get a bingo card out really don't they??

Bambambini Mon 12-Oct-15 23:15:28

Mimi - I've said before that the international community should get together and offer sanctuary to any Palestinains that want to leave (especially those with children). Like other refugees - take them in and let those who want to start again somewhere else have that chance. I wonder how many would choose to leave.

Oh I don't care...I know how these threads go..always the bloody same. Am so sick of it. If I was a Palestinian, too fucking right I would be burning raging blazing with hatred in my heart. I wouldn't be rational and thoughtful and considerate of both sides of the story. I would fight and fight and fight.

Bambambini Mon 12-Oct-15 23:24:15

How would you feel if you were Israeli?

The best response was the one that began by saying it is not complicated. Oh, no, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not complicated at all, the issues are very simple and everybody agrees on what should be done.
