Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. -Matthew 26:52
I didn't object to that statement for being nonfactual so much as coming off as very sloppy research and implying a general carelessness for the topic that I'm sure all those involved would find incredibly offensive. The rest of your points sound pretty reasonable so I'll assume you probably didn't mean it that way.
There's obviously more than enough blame to go around, unfortunately.
There are still groups whose sworn goal is the total destruction of Israel and yet people complain about Israel stealing houses. I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder.
You conveniently ignored the part where I said I really doubt Israel's goal is genocide.
Israel's ethnic cleansing is absolutely a genocide. They want to eliminate the Palestinians as a national group
Beg pardon? Ethnicity and nationality are two very different things. You can't call it ethnic cleansing if it isn't targeting an ethnicity. Google calls genocide "the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation." So ethnic cleansing and national cleansing are both subsets of genocide (then you get into fun terminology twists like "religious vs. ethnic Jews"). For them to be the same thing requires that all the inhabitants of the country are the same ethnicity, and no significant populations of that ethnicity exist outside the country either.
Labeling it "genocide" supposes that the motivation of Israeli killing Palestinians is to wipe out the Palestinians as a group (can you have an "accidental genocide?"). I would think that their goal is instead to keep them suppressed so as to minimize their ability to hurt them (Israel), NOT to wipe them out. Although of course you will probably find hardliners in the population that think they *should* just wipe them all out.
Sorry about the pedantic hair-splitting, but this argument looks like it's swiftly degenerated into name-calling and moderation swing, so I'm trying to bring a little objective definition to the discussion.
Ah crap, replied to wrong comment.
Because Jews and Christians in all those other Muslim countries totally aren't second-class citizens. Nope.
The other choice that they "don't have" is not trying to wipe Israel off the map.
It has also probably killed more civilians than Hamas as its more powerful.
Wow, that's not wildly unsubstantiated or anything. Citation very much needed. Which side is the one that won't stop lobbing rockets over the border?
Are Palestinian Arabs a distinct ethnic group from those living a few miles away in e.g. Jordan? If not, calling it "genocide" seems about as accurate as the entire concept of racial superiority.
I have a hard time attacking the immigrants when they had to defend themselves from an Arab invasion literally THE DAY the Mandate expired. Nobody will accuse the Middle East of being tactful.
Since then, actions on both sides have been more and more regrettable.
Oh. Missed the subject line that you didn't duplicate anywhere in the post. I don't change the subject 99% of the time on my posts so it's a blind spot.
I'm not going to deny that assembly CAN be faster, but my bullshit detector goes off whenever I hear somebody advocating using hand-tuned assembly as a general practice.
Have you heard of MenuetOS? I suppose the argument could be made that after 14 years, they have a leg up on HURD and ReactOS.
You could have replaced that entire comment with a single sentence just telling me your username. If I wanted to turn my brain to mush reading pages and pages and pages of fiddly assembly bits, I'd just read the link.
Only a certain strata, I think. There are a lot of trolls who are welcome to stay here.
Which one of the posters in that link are we supposed to assume is you? I didn't see any APK's.
