#192 Palestinian Genocide in World Events
atidereEnzoDBAny Jewish person who thinks they have the right to pledge allegiance, become nationalized to a part of the world they have never been to and have no roots in, and move to said region that native people have been forced out of, is part of the problem. I'm not saying Jewish people have no right to live in the region, as that area has been home to people of all faiths, but every foreign settler is straight up playing a role in the genocide.

There's no logical fallacies in what he said. EnzoDB is saying that if you are jewish, have never been to Israel and have no familial roots in Israel and move there, then you are complicit in the genocide of Palestinians. He even acknowledges that there exists jewish people with familial roots in the area, and you call it a fallacy? You should read what you are replying to carefully if you want to disprove someone's statement.

As for EnzoDB's actual point, well a great example would be the many jewish South African fascists who benefited from apartheid and moved to Israel and displaced local people in their zionist conquest. And it only got worse once apartheid fell in South Africa, can't legally lord over people in South Africa? Move to Israel. Not even jewish? Convert to judaism and we'll take you anyway! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHP_KS5FenU This is a video that documents South African Settler's who left South Africa to continue figuratively stepping on people. Hard to say these people aren't contributing to the Palestinian genocide.

Speaking of South Africa, this is a great article that looks at the historical similarities in the developments between Israel and South Africa as settler colonial states. https://www.jstor.org/stable/41857718?seq=16
It's only 21 pages, but it really highlights the similarities, and at the very least has sufficient sources. Worth the read imo.

atidereWild_RumpusatidereI guess our definitions of "liberal Zionism" are different. However, I don't think that is important to find out. If by Israel you mean Netanyahu and the Likud party (especially since he's retaken power), then I can't say you are far off. But if this is what you think the majority of Israelis think, it's just my opinion that that is a naïve conclusion to come to.Here is a group of public opinion polls in israel: https://en.idi.org.il/articles/51198 (this is an israeli organization so you could argue that they may overrepresent the popularity of the state's actions)

What i want to point out is that yes, netanyahu is unpopular among the israeli "left". But as this poll shows a main split between left and right is that the right wants to wait until the so-called war is over to figure out blame fot the "failure of october 7th" whereas the "left" doesnt (or rather still dows but just kinda less so".

Combined with the fact that an insane 80 PERCENT of the israeli "left" are more trusting of the IDF than netanyahu this clearly paints the grim picture that the Israeli "left" doesnt have a problem with the ongoing genocide, otherwise they would trust the idk carrying it out, but instead just dont like that netanyahu let oct 7 happen

so yes, liberal zionists are pretty much exactly like ive described. people who are truly anti-zionist tend to leave israel if able
atidere I've got to ask, do you believe that Jews around the world have a right to live there too if they choose to do so? Again, appreciate the responses.Jews lived in Palestine before zionism was invented and im sure they will live in Palestine after it is defeated. If you're asking if every Israeli citizen can rest assured that they get to keep going on as usual just under a palestinian state then the answer is no, settlers still need to be ousted from homes they dont own, war criminals and genociders still need to stand trial.

A few things here. First, the sample size of that study is quite low. I'm not sure you can conclusively say that this does/doesn't reflect the general opinion of the Israeli left. I mean ~600 Israelis were questioned and ~150 Arab Israeli were questioned. The third point I don't really get regarding the IDF. I mean that kind of makes sense does it not? The people who grew up in your communities and who you trained with are probably going to be the most you trust. It is again, in my opinion, quite naïve to think everyone in the IDF agrees with the likes of Netanyahu or Itamar Ben Gvir etc.

I will say, that it never ceases to amaze me that people feel comfortable criticizing the Israeli government and its systems/policies, and with the same comfort level, they will then propose a solution that involves whatever they are accusing of the Israeli government of committing. It really is a phenomenon that I may never come to understand.

To answer one of your earlier questions in this thread Enzo, to how could people derail such a serious and dire topic so quickly is quite simple. Firstly, I've got to say, your opinions about this topic reek of xenophobia and you have a tendency to play into a few of the common antisemitic tropes. Not to say I am the one who gets to decide how to judge your character, just an observation from your posts in this thread. Second, like someone correctly identified, Hitler joined the conversation by post #4. Shit was doomed as soon as he laid his eyes on this thread. I think most importantly though, there is little mention of Hamas's accountability and the one post of the October 7th denial from you Enzo (although the conversation certainly derailed way before that). But that is absolutely an inhumane thought.

In general sample size of 600 and 150 is sufficient to make claims and that sample size has been used forever to great effect. Of course with more people you will get more accurate but at a certain point it becomes statistically negligible.

For the third point you said you didn't get, Wild Rumpus wants to show that the majority of Israeli's don't care that they are mascaraing Palestinians, something you said is a naive thought. To do this he broadly splits the Israeli population into two groups, people on the right and people on the left, and wants to show that each group doesn't care about Palestinian lives. In the poll he linked the 80% of the Israeli "left" trusts the IDF more than Netanyahu to lead the war, whereas the right it's only 41% that thinks that, with 29% being they trust both of the IDF and Netanyahu equally. In both cases none of them is a small minority, which is the ONLY acceptable answer if one actually cares about stopping the genocide of Palestinians, as they are both complicit in the genocide of Palestinians. This shows that both sides and also a majority of Israelis don't care about their genocide of Palestinians. This was the argument Wild Rumpus made, just a little clearer.

As for your bewilderment at people criticizing Israel and wanting to install policies and conditions that you think are the exact same but for the other side, I'm just as bewildered that you said you've followed this quite closely for literally half your life, yet the most you've put forth is milquetoast centrist videos, lack of reading comprehension and statistical knowledge, and no sources for anything. But that's not important, what is is that the policies you're confused by aren't the same for both sides, wanting to end settler colonialism in Palestine is not the same as wanting to colonize Palestine. For this a start is to read this article, https://www.jstor.org/stable/2535582 a very brief introduction to the history of Zionist Imperialism, which you can get for free through your unis library, or if you don't attend some unis will give out library cards for free which you can access stuff online, or pirate it.

#60 Palestinian Genocide in World Events
Chris_EnzoDBThanks for derailing my serious thread guys, glad to know how serious everyone takes this topic
as far as politics go I consider myself central, flirting with both left and right depending on what party is currently less insane.

This doesn't give you any credibility.

Chris_Genocide has unfortunately become a buzzword in peoples vocabulary that when numerically and morally analysed doesn’t hold a mirror to the truth.

Except by definition what is happening to the people of Palestine is literally genocide? See the definition here. https://www.un.org/en/genocideprevention/genocide.shtml

Regardless if you attempt to maneuver around the definition of genocide, one thing is unambiguous; it is the state of Israel, and its predecessors, who are the aggressors, who are the oppressors. This has been the case for literally over 100 years now, since the Zionist project first began to take fold.

#208 NHL Megathread in Off Topic

It's pretty crazy to finally see Bedard in the league, I've been hearing stories about him since he was 11 solely through word of mouth, mind you I lived 2000 miles away in Ontario. Far and away the best of his year and like 3 years up in his province, and the stories only got crazier as he got older and had every game recorded. Hope he lives up to the hype, been very enjoyable to watch him make offense out of nothing.

#9 LFT jaekee adv in Recruitment (looking for team)

Tried him out many times on medic, very good mechanics, doesn't tilt and says productive things in game. Despite his inexperience, he can definitely hang in bubble advanced on medic, with much room to grow. Worth a tryout for pretty much every team in the div.

#12 Lunch thread in Off Topic

Whatever you do, remember that meal prepping is an option. It saves so much time and money. I cook about 30 minutes a day, and once a week meal prep my chicken which takes about 40 minutes. I spend about $120 on food a month for about 2900 calories a day. Not sure what the UK equivalent of Bulk Barn is, but any place where you can buy spices in bulk by the gram or ounce will suffice.

#27 Easy tier 5 maps for soldier. in TF2 General Discussion

Those are definitely easier, and naturally should be played first but I find koro and owakare far and away more fun than lion and vulc. I just through those out there cause I think they're fun.

#23 Easy tier 5 maps for soldier. in TF2 General Discussion

Most of these suggestions are good, but honestly to have the most fun you'd probably want to just rerun maps you already have fun on, so trying to get better times on t4s you like. If you insist on running t5s and t6s, ask in irc or the tempus discord if a map has a dumb jump and people will generally tell you quickly, for example stella last. Ones that weren't mentioned here that are fun are areae(fun pogo, however mrhappycamper map), nebuchadnezzar, pandemonium, sampi and valley. Some fun and easish t6s are koro, diamant and owakare.

#6 Could a team of 3 people win open / newcomer? in TF2 General Discussion

I don't think so, it'd be too easy to just have the newcomer team run a perma heavy and that kind of kills any aggression and minimizes the chances of overextension. If it was 4v6 I'd think top invite/prem players could definitely do it, medic scout scout demo, medic scout soldier demo would both work.

Literally doesn't matter as long as it's functional. xhair 7 is goated, the defualt xhair that is the dot with wings is also good. I've used both on every class, the game is the same.
