      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

The Jewish problem

FW,

I'm surprised at your lack of resourcefulness. Right-click on the pic, select Properties. Your question will be answered.

 

Doh! I always forget that. Twin Sisters Lakes. I was, like, 2 miles off. :grin:

These one-sided lists of palestinian violence are pathetic and again shouldn't convince anyone that Israel only retaliates to the extremists on the other side. Here is the valuable perspective of israelis in Sderot (the community near Gaza that reveived 1000's of rockets since 2001): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/adam-horowitz/even-in-sderot-israelis-s_b_154771.html

 

Isn't it revealing how rightwing blowhards always can justify their own advocacy of violence but the little brown people should content themselves with placing flowers in the guns of occupying armies (the guns are courtesy of the US taxpayer in this case)? As usual Greenwald is right on target: http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2009/01/04/terrorism/index.html

 

I don't understand how Egyptian policy making represent evidence of palestinian wrong-doing. There is in turn plenty of evidence showing that arab governments have sold palestinians down the river.

 

Finally, your own lack of skepticism toward Israeli propaganda is the problem JayB not the opposite. It took me about 30 seconds to find numerous links that document israeli collaboration with Iran during the Iran-Iraq war. Here is one:

I imagine Israel's interests were different in 1980 than they are today--as were ours. As for the rest, surely you can do better than Huffingtonpost and Salon--left wing equivalents of Rush Limbaugh and Hannity. Dude, give it a rest.

I agree that Arab governments have sold the Palestinians down the river, as has their own leadership. Restricting the conversation to their "Arab Brothers" for a moment, why do you think that they have concluded that it's in their interest to give rhetorical support to their ambitions, while doing absolutely nothing that would directly or indirectly improve their situation in practice?

They lost my sympathy long ago at the Munich Olympics in 1972.

 

 

Well, there's a one sentence explanation of the mentality that keeps this conflict going and going....an eye for an eye, even if it was 36 years ago.
