No, it's not. This is yet another ignorant bullshit talking point on your part.
I am not and never have been an anti-Semite. Just because I don't agree with what Israel is doing in no way means I'm an anti-Semite. Just because I don't agree with what Hamas and the Palestinians are doing in no way means I hate them either.
What I do believe is that they BOTH need to put the weapons down and never pick them up again and start talking to each other and start helping solve the problems, immediately.
So, what happened to the Jewish people in WWII completely justifies them annihilating the Palestinians at a casualty rate of nearly 7 to 1?
I didn't say disarm. I said lay them down. I should have been more clear and stated that they should never pickup arms against each other. Nothing will come of it other than more needless, pointless death.
They are Islamic terrorists because that's what they say they are. They've even made a good case for it, invoking scripture about vanguards and apocalypses and an Islamic Utopia that comes after. We didn't brand them, they asked for it.
No, it does not work the same way and you know it.
Abandon your highly transparent attempt to trick me into making a logic error.
Claiming a label (within reason) and claiming to be their representative are completely different things.
Claiming that there is a god is not a reasonable act. Faith is, by definition, an act without reason.
Based on my extensive study and experience of human nature, if anyone claims (however indirectly) to be unreasonable, I'll believe them.
Politicians claim to represent "their people" and religious leaders claim to represent their gods. I honestly don't see either of those claims as being any more unreasonable than each other, or than claiming to represent goats.
In fact, I hereby proclaim myself the global representative for all bananas. If you have something to say to the banana kingdom, it has to go through me -- and you Don't want to upset the 73,000,000,000,000 bananas that I speak for!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
Do not give these losers the satisfaction of representing Islam. These criminal actions are the actions of a few, and to brand the billion plus muslims on this planet as a result, you are playing into the terrorists' hand and doing exactly what they want.
I gave a flying f* when it was France, then Belgium... why should I do otherwise? I did not put "PEACE" banners on the balconies in 2003, I did not superimposed rainbows during gay prides, I do not put black or pink ribbons to "fight against breast cancer" or "to protect women rights".
Yes, I know, I'm a terrible person. I'll bear with it.
Regarding the latter two: I donate to research institutes and treat women with the same respect I give to men.
