At least the authorities condemned it. That's a hopeful sign.

Well, we all know that Arabs/Muslims are inherently bad people, and Israel is incapable of doing anything wrong.


 








Oh, okay. So, the Arabs will be okay, so long as they live as you expect them to... in other words, "fix" their culture to your expectations. 


Otherwise, we can continue to sterotype them. Laughing

No ... Arab Peoples will indeed -- as they SHOULD !!! -- "live and move and have their being" in their own Culture as THEY choose ... I have never posted anything otherwise ...


BUT ... If SOME Arab (or any other) Persons or Governments or Movements start-up or continue Activities aimed AGAINST "Jews" just BECAUSE they ARE "Jews," and/or calling for the DESTRUCTION of a United Nations Member State ("Israel"), THEN I certainly fully oppose and reject THAT with every Fiber of MY Being ... THAT is my Point ...

My comments were largely meant as satire -- I didn't mean to pick on you, personally.


That said, I think we're on the same page. The irrational rage and hatred on both sides of the Jewish/Arab conflict needs to stop. 


And since there are far more Arabs than Jews in the region, it would seem only fair that Arabs take the lead on this.

Yes ... "Hatred" eventually become SELF-consuming ... It is ultimately SELF-defeating ... and so eventually is experienced as all-around in-Human ...

This thread was moved from the Hot Topics Zone.


Tunisia is NOt in the Middle east which is why the thread was moved to World News, not Middle East News.

While I have no problem with this thread being here, Tunisia is part of the Middle east. It is a member nation of the Arab league and it is located in North Africa between two other members of the Arab league both of who are also in the Middle east. The Middle east includes all of the Arab nations, Israel, Turkey, Iran and arguably extends into Armenia, the Balkans,  southern Europe (Greece, Cyprus, Malta) etc...
