Israel is a proxy of the United States in some ways. When it comes to this current situation, it was carried out by their free will with probably no real consultation with the United States.

I don't see the point of you saying that they are a proxy, as if it strengthens your argument. I love that they are a proxy.

502
Hmmm... I'm not going to read many of your pointless arguments.

Here's mine:

No matter whether or not the Lebanese people like what Israel is doing, it doesn't matter at all. The opinions of the Lebanese people: the Shiia, Sunnis and Christians, does not influence Israel’s military planning.

Israel has yet to show its true power, and I'm sure that Lebanon and Syria does not want to see it. Why take such a massive gamble like this?

That is the problem with the Arabs in that region, they forget all too quickly. Have they all forgotten Israel's history of military victories in very similar cases? Do all these Arabs think that a few years of relative inactivity has weakened the Israeli military?

It was a very serious mistake on Hezbollah's part; everyone has made a significant miscalculation of Israel’s military might. If this goes on, mark my words, the world will be shocked when they see Israel’s military fury.

Sheeesh… it's not anti-Semitism when hate is directed towards Arabs. That is anti-arab/anti-muslim sentiment. 

You’re incorrect because you are using an ambiguous word you idiot. Anti-Semitism is defined as hatred towards Jews.

Yeah, I can tell just how educated you are.

504
I rather use the latter definition, because that's what it has become. The word has become more synonymous with Jewry than any other of the nationality it has previously covered. That's why there is no subsequent definition for Arabs, or any other of the groups of people listed in the first definition.

Additionally, the negative form of the adjective, anti-Semitism, "is almost always used as a misnomer to mean "anti-Jewish" specifically". This further complicates the meaning, and adds weight to the belief that in our modern society, a Semite is a reference for Jewry.

Harvey Birdman, great post. Thanks.

The point is, I did look it up.

Quote
Sem•ite    ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (smt)
n.
A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians.
A Jew.
Bible. A descendant of Shem.
The second definition is a Jew, specifically, so that would suggest that it is more synonymous now with the Jewish people than all Semitic speaking peoples.

A word is a symbol just like the swastika, and a word can change meaning over time. It does not necessarily mean that I am changing history.

Feel free to use ‘anti-Semitism’ in the wrong context, because after 9/11 there was hate primarily targeting Arabs and Muslims, not Jews.

there is no deviation from the original...semetic is arab and jew...period...you cannot re-write the past like a rap artist piggybacks a classic lyric and calls it something else...that definition of semetic is both arab and jew...and while some "forget" this...it is a fact which some of us will always remember.

bluewarrior, guess what... the swastika wasn't always a symbol of the nazi party.

Quote
the "crescenting guerrillas" must be destroyed...and only the clerics and palestinian people can do that.

The clerics and palestinian people are the only ones that can destroy the "crescenting guerrillas"? That'll never happen, ever - never ever ever ever.

an·ti-Sem·i·tism (nt-sm-tzm, nt-)
n.
Hostility toward or prejudice against Jews or Judaism.
Discrimination against Jews.

509
Arabs can not even live with each other, and we expect a peace between Arab and Jew?

It is important that the World becomes realistic, but it is far more imperative that we as a Jewish people see the reality of the situation.

510
bluewarrior, well said, but just because they are our biblical "brothers", does not mean I should trust the average Palestinians - and I don't.

The definition of a Semite has deviated from its original to become a phrase synonymous with the Jewish people. I don't like to put them in the same category as us.

At this point in time, they are our enemies and I don’t consider them our brothers. We didn’t fight for Hitler; we didn’t blow up mosques and we do not do everything in our power to kill civilians.
 
Separation is delicious.
