Shouldn't we also end the collective fiction that Taiwan isn't an independent country?

Why is everyone worried about a violent backlash over Trump moving the embassy to Jeruslam?

We all know Islam is a religion of peace.

'Everyone' is worried because of the end result, the loss of life.

The act in itself is largely ceremonial, but it does raise tensions no end in the region, and in any body's sane mind the area does not need that.

Oh sure. Uh huh. I am dazzled by their display of power and wrath. Everyone is!! :roll: Have you not noticed that terrorists are being hunted down like vermin in places with far superior means and abilities while maintaining their way of life just fine thank you very much (the western world), while places that harbor accept, encourage and admire such behavior are in fact crumbling hell holes or getting there fast (the Middle East)? You tell me who is 'winning'.

Allow me to reframe this language you can understand: You know those people who chose to ('somebody made them do it!) party with suicide belts, butcher knives, car bombs, etc.? They will be hunted down and shown no mercy. Their families will be hunted down. Their property will be confiscated and their homes destroyed. All that they hold dear will suffer to the max. If you don't believe me I recommend you refer back to recent history. I do realize that this will not make anyone of that nature reconsider the true importance of the location of embassies, however, there is no need for them to understand. They need to be very afraid.

See grasshopper, now that's trash talk.

Yes, well, it was stupid idea, much much easier to continue to pretend that the Knesset is actually not the seat of Israeli government and Arab Israelis actually are ethnic backwater-Ottoman-empire nationalists with the wherewithall to manage more than a kitchen garden, etc. etc. I vote for the easier way, but the orange creature has to have his little show.

Plenty of demonstrations going on here as well. OMG. What should be done about dissent? Let me see... we could try Erdogan's method - disappear all the naysayers and squelch the press. Or maybe emulate the great Arab traditions of Iraq and Syria and just kill everyone (including bombing hospitals, civilians and whatnot, of course - it's all in the name of Justice!). Or perhaps try Lebanon's system - we could invite the Hizbollah to 'coexist' with the local government! So many choices...

I can't imagine when good timing would be. It's all symbol and no substance, it's not like anything will come of this except a change of address, maybe, yet people are going to get hurt. Hopefully the demonstrations will not get crazier. About 20 people reported injured as of now. The IDF are still using rubber bullets out there so I guess no explosives and such. I have to go to Jerusalem tomorrow. oh joy.

??Dissent is definitely madness if you take your cues from most Middle Eastern countries. In fact it will get you disappeared, chop chop. Unlike in Israel.

You know what else is madness? To threaten death and destruction over a change of an embassy address when you know perfectly well that no such death and destruction is going to result in Palestinian government of Jerusalem. BTW, you do know the difference between dissent and death and destruction, right? Perhaps I assume too much.

The only difference, it's been substantiated by 3rd party sources. It is the MO

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/mor ... b7f46571fb

The United Nations has found troves of rockets hidden in three of its schools since the conflict began. “We condemn the group or groups who endangered civilians by placing these munitions in our school,” Chris Gunness, spokesman for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, said in statement published Wednesday by the Times of Israel. “This is yet another flagrant violation of the neutrality of our premises. We call on all the warring parties to respect the inviolability of U.N. property.”

Earlier this month, the United Nations also found rockets piled inside one of its vacant schools — near other schools used to accommodate displaced people.

The international organization also found 20 additional rockets at another of its schools during an inspection, calling it one more “flagrant violation of the inviolability” of the premises
.

Post’s William Booth saw a “group of men” at a mosque in northern Gaza. They said they had returned to clean up glass from shattered windows. “But they could be seen moving small rockets into the mosque,” Booth wrote. He also reported that Shifa Hospital in Gaza City had “become a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices.”

Wall Street Journal reporter Nick Casey tweeted an image of a Hamas spokesman giving an interview at a Gaza hospital. With the shelling, “You have to wonder … how patients at Shifa hospital feel as Hamas uses it as a safe place to see media.” The tweet was later deleted.

According to longtime Middle East analyst Matthew Levitt, Hamas has long planted weapons in areas inhabited by vulnerable residents. “It happens in schools,” he wrote in Middle East Quarterly. “Hamas has buried caches of arms and explosives under its own kindergarten playgrounds,” referencing a 2001 State Department report that said a Hamas leader was arrested after “additional explosives in a Gaza kindergarten” were discovered.

Valid observation. He generally reacts when Jews get uppity. I was reminded of this recently.

Does the Palestinian Authority still maintain that there is no Jewish historical presence in Jerusalem? IE that there was no Temple and no kingdom?

Also, for Muslims, what is the fourth holiest site in Islam?

For non-Muslims, what is the third holiest site in your religion?
