This is very typical Republican behaviour - similar to their response to BLM and anger at minority mistreatment.

As long as the Palestinians just keep quiet and accept their awful treatment at the hands of the Israeli state, Republicans will keep quiet. As soon as the Palestinians have had enough and fight back, Republicans will call them terrorists and pin the blame on them.

Here is Amnesty International's report of Israel's record in 2020.

Everything you need to know about human rights in Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories

Tell me marc, how long do you expect Palestinians to quietly sit there and take this ?


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: In Essence You Support A Meritocracy
The so called "global elite" are the invisible enemy which the evil right wing thugs at the top of the totem pole have invented to sell to the people near the bottom of the totem pole, whose votes they need (at least until they succeed in destroying democracy).

And there are two things you need to do to maintain that totem pole - (a) invent an invisible enemy, as I've said, and (b) encourage racism and other forms of discrimination, so that the idiots near the bottom of the totem pole feel that (although they're not at the top with their millionaire manipulative idols), they're still above a lot of other people.

It happened in the 1930s, very successfully (for a while) and led to the slaughter of millions of human beings. It's starting again.

Re: In Essence You Support A Meritocracy
Yeah, that's kind of me.

My wife keeps telling me not to get angry so much, but it's hard not to.

Need to get a puppy or some kittens or something...
