I think we have all seen the threads about Isreal and Palestine, whether we post in them or not.. I think most, if not all of us, can see that they ALWAYS turn into some kind of flamewar.. I say here, that they should not be discussed at all.. I just saw a previoud post, that basically says the same thing..
Quote from post : http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/222284/6/ Right now the Middle East conflict is sounding a lot like the one going on in Non-Aviation. One group attacks the other and it keeps going on and on and on. Isn't it about time we gave up on all the Israel v. Palestine posts? All they do is lead to arguments, and the same ones keep going on and on and on. There will ALWAYS be those who support Israel, and those who support Palestine. We KNOW this, I don't think there is any point to this whole subject of threads. Yes it is good to have discussions and debates, but the whole Middle East one is getting very irritating. I think all Israel v. Palestine threads should be deleted. They cause nothing but trouble in the forums.
Take a look at the rest of the thread.. someone decided to discuss it RIGHT THERE.... These threads need to stop.. They do NONE of us any good, and just end up getting locked up..
In a nutshell- BE VERY CAREFUL if you post about Isreal and Palestein.. It is wearing thin on a LOT of ppl here..
Lets do some sexy math. We add you, subtract your clothes, divide your legs and multiply

Geez. God forbid that a discussion on this forum turn into an (gasp) argument.
If the Israel/Palestine posts are getting on your nerves, do what I do: just skip them.
But the idea of not discussing something because it might break into a disagreement is preposterous. Granted it is quite unlikely that any of us forumites will have a say in the real conflict, but if someone has something new and or interesting to say about the topic, don't you think it should be heard? Life is full of arguments and disagreements. I don't know when the last time someone on this forum was physically hurt by anything that anyone else said. Do you?

I totaly agree. The fact is that they have become so biased. Also I really don't need to hear (excuse my crudness) about every little thing that happens there. I am a person who is usualy willing to wait for good but I have given up on this whole mid east thing. its starting to drive me crazy. All you ever hear is Palestine that isreal that. If you say one thing pro palistinian you are imediatly anti semetic and a terrorist supporter.
Just the titles of the threads show how biased they are ie: x# of isralies slaughterd by (fill in the blank).
Both sides are incredibly wrong in my opinion and I am so sick of one post being palestine bashing then some where a isreal bashing which automaticly means it is anti semetic.
Please. People have become totaly blind to the causes of the two sides. Yes there are reasons for this conflict and it is a hell of a lot more than just... Arabs in isreal want a country.
anyways... I swear I am going to have a nervous breakdown from these posts.

The world never learned in the past, so why should it in the future?
Killing eachother is the favourite passtime of homo 'sapiens sapiens' (only species I ever knew that thinks it is smart enough to warrant saying so twice in it's own name...) and has been for over 10000 years. It's not going to stop because someone thinks it is morally wrong unless he himself is doing the killing.
Maybe political posts should be banned, but the problem with that is determining what is political as politicians get their grubby hands on everything.
