An 11 year old boy who was attacking them with a molotov ****tail.
Sad truth: if a culture is going to teach it's youngest children to fight and try to kill, and value that more than peace, 11 year olds are going to be killed, whether they be shot while throwing molotov ****tails or blown up as suicide bombers.
why is the word for a mixed drink or a rooster censored?
You can go to the movies and watch a Robert Diniro movie and every other word out of DiNiro's mouth will be "F-ck" the audiance will be twittering and giggling, then if you should get up and go out to the Popcorn counter and say "hi, I'll have a large f-cking butter popcorn and a son of a b!tchin f-cking medium coke" they'll throw you out of the f-cking theatre...............Hypocrit Society.
"israel is a horrible nation, **#* the people, $#&$ the jews. its the israeli soldiers fault when attacked" - Leftist rhetoric.
I hate all the anti semitism the left has to offer. :bricks:
soldier Doron Efrati is israeli , he is not lefty nor righty , he is just an israeli soldier.

Try spelling it "cowk"
There's no easy way here. The soldiers can't descriminate in this position. For them, there's little difference, sadly, between an 11 year old with an AK, grenade, or molatov ****tail, and a 40 year old. Obviously I can only speak from the passage written, as I wasn't on the ground when all this happened. The kid might have been 1,000 feet away for all we know, and not a threat. We just don't know. Still though, a very, very tragic story. When I hear stories like this, I always think back to the movie Black Hawk Down. Near the end, for those of you who have seen it, when the Rangers are running back to the Stadium (green zone), they are being chased down and shot at by the entire city. Anyhow, one of the soldiers, sees a woman pick up an AK and attempt to shoot it at them. He says to himself "don't do it, don't do it", cuz he doesn't want to shoot a woman. Well, she does it, and another soldier drops her instead. That scene always stuck in my head. Could I shoot a woman or kid in that instance? In the field, it's you or them, and in such a simple equation, you can see where who the "them" is, really doesn't matter. Again, who knows what the specifics were on the ground for the Israeli soldiers. Maybe they didn't have to. Maybe they did.
There's a huge difference between a kid throwing a molotov cowktail and an adult woman with an AK. You agree, no?
Why? They can both kill you.
No, to me, you defend yourself against both, and whatever happens, happens.
From my computer here in Boston? Sure. In the field? I dunno. Maybe for you there would be, maybe for someone else there wouldn't. Hard for me to certify without being there.
If a six year old kid is running towards me with a bomb hanging around his neck screaming "Praise Allah" I'll blow the little bastards head off and then stab him.
Please explain how you have come to the conclusion that the left has a lot of anti-semitism?
My belief is that the left includes the majority of Jewish voters, people and even members of our congress and senate.
It is more like the right in particular the religious right that contains the majority of the anti semitism in our nation albeit most of it is covert.
Exactly. Perhaps they should have asked this kid for a picture ID before they killed him. Terrorism and murder do not carry a minimum age requirement.
Better safe than sorry I guess.
Is it possible to criticize Israeli polciies and actions without being anti-semitic? Serious question because the "anti-semitic trump card is getting old....
How does it feel? Does it feel about the way it feels for some of us when we get called racist or whatever?
Not the same at all. If you don't want to be called a racist (not you a. paul, I don't think I've ever called you a racist) then don't say racist things. I have never said anything denegrating about the jewish people. But criticizing a STATE is not the same as criticizing a people. Just the same way as when Wright said "goddamn America" if you had listened to the sentences leading up to that you would have heard he was talking about the American government, not its people. Lumping all black people together and making racist generalizations and assumptions about them is nowhere near the same thing as criticizing the state of Israel. Much the same way as criticizing the Saudi, Iraqi or Iranian governments isn't being racist against Arabs or Persians.
Is it possible to say something negative about minorities without being racist? Serious question because the "racist" trump card is getting old...
If you don't want to be called anti-semetic, then don't say anti-semetic things.
Well I haven't, so I guess I won't. Thanks though.
Let's see, "minorities" v. "nation-state." Yep, not the same thing at all like I said.
Calling Harry, Calling Harry.
The word is semitic not semetic.
Don't worry about him, he struggles sometimes.
Interesting. Very interesting.
Yes, Harry is a very interesting person. My kind of guy.
