It isn't that old. It "started" with the numerous invasions by numerous people over time. The reason is because it was a crossroads to Africa, Asia, and Europe. Yes, aside from the Suez canal, it's possible to walk from Africa to Asia/Europe. They are one land mass, and one of the most convenient places to pass between them is the middle east.

The Crusades were because of economic envy, not religion. The area was so "important" that England held it for a while, which is how it was able to be "gifted" to the WWII refugees. And it's been war ever since with the neighbors trying to finish what Hitler started.

Between the crusades and the creation of Israel, England has more to do with starting this than many who lived there.

I don't bother to follow that mess. There's nothing I can do about it, so it's pointless to try. But, in response to your accusations, I looked and found nothing that supported the story.

Your quote confirms that Hamas used the school as a human shield, deliberately firing from there, which those near knew. But rather than evacuate, they stayed at the launch site for an attack on Israel. Why? Oh, Hamas refused them passage to safety. Hamas kidnapped them for human shields. And Israel is in the wrong for hitting Hamas back, because Hamas had kidnapped human shields still on site.

Yes, all Israel's fault.

Can force you into debt. School cloths. Food. Medicine. A toy for the birthday.

Losing a job and not being able to find another can force you into debt. You need to eat. We've been dismantling the Safety Net for 40 years. If you think you're protected and you're not already rich then your nuts.

It's also ridiculous to say you're not "forced" into debt when you need medical attention. Experience the pain of an infected tooth or a Kidney Stone you can't pass and tell me about the "choices" you have then.

Christ, what the hell is wrong with this world. Human beings need certain thing to survive. I've said this before and will again: If we can put a man on the moon why the hell can't we feed our kids?

Please point to the fascists riddling the current Ukrainian government.

Members of Svoboda, the neo-Nazi inspired party formerly known as the "Social-National Party of Ukraine", hold several government posts: Oleksandr Sych, Vice Prime Minister; Andriy Mokhnyk- Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources; Ihor Shvayka, Minister of Agriculture.

Svoboda is so far right that just three years ago there was a move to have the party banned nationwide:

And it does not "ban" any people, innocent or otherwise. It bans anonymous edits from an IP. That isn't a person. That is just one of the many ways of making edits. It certainly isn't a "ban" as they still get "use" of Wikipedia, reading and otherwise. They just can't edit, anonymously, from that IP. Edit anonymously from home, or get a login. It's not a hardship to anyone.
