Im really sorry guys that i started another thread, had no idea this one was here! I believe this is an historic decision for Israel, they have voted to hand back land to the Palestinians.

I dare any american bush supporter to criticise my nation after we bent over backwards to help you in the war on terror.
Islamic Terrorism will continue until the brainwashing of young muslims is ended and moderates within the faith seize control and end the power of these fanatics who twist islamic teaching for their own evil means. Allowing Turkey to join the EU will send a signal that the West wants co-operation wi...Jump to post
Kerry needs to change tactics if he is going to really go into a major lead. He needs to talk more of the future rather than im a tough guy I was in vietnam.

Kerrys main weakness is his indecision regarding votes in the senate,Americans like guts and even if you dont fully agree with Bush at least you can say he has the courage of his convictions.

Having scanned through this thread I noticed that a lot of posts at the start did not actually focus on the events that there are 100s of children fearing for their life or are already dead and instead this thread turned into "dont blame the muslims"/"muslims are all evil" These are terrorists who w...Jump to post

Well now with Iran being investigated because of the fact that 11 hijackers visited the country(i doubt the iranians were stupid enough to help them) it is embrassing for Halliburton to be under investigation to a terror supporting islamic dictatorship when at the same time america want to promote d...Jump to post
"It should be neither a Christian, a Muslim, or a Jewish city. It should be just as I've said many time, a tri-religion city.

Banco you are correct in your statements, Britain would have used chemical weapons and if it had had a nuclear device it would have used it.

Horus, it may escape your attention but Israel is already re-routing the barrier and once Labour is back in goverment there is more chance of hell freezing over than a massive grab of land.

Quoting Said and John Chancellor is hardly reliable.

There is nothing wrong with a fence on pre-june 1967 borders.

I do not believe that Schoenorama has a leg to stand on.Spain is hardly a good example of fighting a nice clean war.

Gman, you raise an interesting point before 9/11 the USA didnt realise the problems we in the UK faced. Members of the Thacter goverment and members of the military did want to bomb selected targets.
Thankfully we got co-operation from Eire so we never had to do this.

"the war was meant to be won 10 months ago." I never said it was. My point is that this isnt a war crime because on my view all wars are crime. They can be legitmate, illegitimate, they can kill 100 people or 100 000 people. They can resuce people from dictators, they can attack terrorists or they c...Jump to post

As you are living in Israel, please answer me this, if heaven forbid The arab armies invaded and Israel was in a war it could not end would you not back a nuclear strike?

Amazing how hospital 'sources; say women and children died but then theres no names, no quotes just 'sources'.
