US, Israel Warships in Suez May Be Prelude to Faceoff with Iran - Defense/Middle East - Israel News - Israel National News

Quote(Egypt allowed at least one Israeli and 11 American warships to pass through the Suez Canal as an Iranian flotilla approaches Gaza. Egypt closed the canal to protect the ships with thousands of soldiers, according to the British-based Arabic language newspaper Al Quds al-Arabi.)

Here we go again, this next week we shall have more Anti Israel and Anti Jewish rhetoric while this latest confrontation gets under way.

Pre-emptive whining at it's finest!

Here we go again, this time next week we shall have more people falsely called Anti Israel and Anti Jewish.

Way to show leadership and intelligent discussion Redress :roll:

It's WAY to early for any military action, mid Oct. at the earliest.

Is there a way to simply move things like this into the partisan area and leave actual discussions of issue for the big boys.

Seriously: What argument are you proposing here? What issue are we to debate with you? What premise are you taking from the article for the group to discuss or debate?

Or are you merely making assumptions based on your (obviously partisan) of what some people might say about a confrontation that hasn't even occurred and is (in all likelihood) not to occur.

There is not "thread" here. There's nothing but a snarky insult that shuts off debate from the get go.

Have a point of view. Defend your point of view. But express your point of view in a way that can be discussed.

Why don't I just start a thread that says, "Republicans eat Kittens". Republicans Eat Kittens Round Sticker from Zazzle.com

And see, I've given proof of my assertions.

And then I'll say this:

Here we go again. Next week, we're going to have all this Anti Kitten and Anti Democrat rhetoric while the kitten buffet gets underway.

It may seem absurd, but I've used your EXACT logic here.

The Truman and its escort are due for re-fitting at Norfolk in the next month. That an Israeli ship wished to tag along in the wake to make news is simply just that. The shortest distance between two points is a straight line, and from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean the Suez is just that.

Goodness.

Honestly Israel could launch a nuclear strike against Germany and you'd still have people here defending their actions, calling anyone who disagreed a Nazi Sympathizer. If you disagree at all with anything Israel does, you're FOR TERRORISM!!

the reverse is also true, you could have the palestinians slaughter every israeli, and some people would say they deserved 'cause the banned chocolate, both sides have their nuts

The reverse is more LIKELY to be true as well, at least in this forum.

Those who generally supportive of Israel are much more likely to indulge in criticism of Israel's actions than are those who support the Palestinians in their cult-like fashion.

this reminds me of coaches at some basketball games when i officiate. they will complain that their team has accrued eight fouls while the other team has only received three, as if there is an expectation that we should charge the other team with fouls it did not earn to make things "even"

The reverse actually happens.
I've yet to hear about anyone on this planet, let alone in this forum, who will justify an Israeli nuke attack on Germany, one of the biggest allies Israel has in Europe right now.

Well, you really didn't HAVE to, Redress.

yeah, people are just devoting hundreds upmn hundreds of dishonest, one sided posts vilifiying anything and everything about Israel because they love Israel, and when they tell us that Jews are scheming puppetmasters they do so out of a deep concern for the Jewish people.

It's not only so smart, but very trendy to say the reactions they receive are unwarranted!
