    As Israel has worked non-stop to wipe the Palestinians off the face of the Earth some Palestinians have talked about doing the same to Israel.

    That's tantamount to blood libel!

    Bullshit! Israel accepted the UN partition plan while the Arabs (word "Palestinian" wasn't redefined into its present meaning until PLO was created and coopted the term) tried to push the Jews into the sea even back then.

    Israel is forever defending itself against Arab/Muslim aggressions. You are spreading vicious lies and anti-Semitic propaganda!

    Facts are not libel.



    I wonder how these blood thirsty sycophants of Israeli theft and murder would react if their land was constantly stolen?

    Hide amongst is not the same thing as attack from.

    Guerilla forces can hide in civilian populations, but launching attacks from such positions is not acceptable.
    That's the same opinion the nazis had of the French resistance.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    If Israel were actually trying to wipe the Palestinians off the face of the Earth we would see far more dead.

    First, that map shows a lot of state land.

    Second, there's a big chunk of basically empty desert.

    Finally, the Arabs attack and the Palestinians lose territory. In 1948. In 1967. In 1973.

    Too bad. Don't want to lose territory, don't go to war!

    Taking land from Palestinians because Egyptians attacked is called reprisals.

    It is immoral and illegal.

    The Palestinians were willing participants in the war.

    No, land was taken form Egypt. And Jordan. Then Jordan and Egypt gave up their claims which makes the territories technically disputed, and not occupied.

    On that stupid map, the first year with any dark green for "Palestinian Land" should only appear in 1993 because there was no Palestinian controlled land before then.

    Note that the term "Palestinian" as we understand it today, i.e. for a group of Arabs with national identity, wasn't even in use during most of the timeline of that map. The term "Palestinian" was purely a geographical term before PLO redefined it.

    That's why it's so silly when anti-Israel activists point to use of word "Palestine" before WWII because the word had a very different meaning back then. The "Palestine" football team was all Jewish for example, no matter what Bella Hadid ignorantly thinks.
