    Ethnic cleansing could be a reality, wouldn't be unusual at all. Even from seeming 'normal' people.

    I had a dental appt yesterday and in front of my clinic there was a group gathered in support of the Palestinians and I had planned to stop by and personally talk to some of them to let them know that they had a lot of support from 'regular people'. They had moved on by the time I was out which was disappointing to me, I did look around a bit to see if I could spot them but no such luck.

    I know from personal experience that simple gestures like that can make a huge difference...

    I likely would have done the same thing if the protesters had been pro-Israel...as we all know...there are no winners.

After the SK that was the raison d'etre for the forum was nabbed I left for awhile but visited later. I came in under another avatar and engaged with the same lady for my own reason. She was busily blasting the hell out of the Mexican border crossers. They this and they that, so I asked her about her thought process...I think after awhile she gathered who I was but I just left.

    The point being she was partially Native American and I was partially Native American but from a certain perspective she hated what I represented. Native Americans despite all they have experienced do not feel a kinship with other Native Americans not from America. I still think...what?! I often wonder what people consider 'Native Americans'. I, for one struggle with the designation myself. People that study human genetics and genealogy do not. My own Mexican father (from a born and bred Mexican family) always complained about those damn 'wetbacks'. For all intents and purposes, he himself was a 'wetback'. The best exposition of that pathological manner of thought was done by Martin Scorsese in 'The Gangs of New York'. I recommend that movie to all.

    A conversion could usher in an extreme form of wokemonism. Do we really want that?

    I'm not so sure about that. Because the typical Wokemon™ reaction toward Israelis would be that Jews must forever be protected against the least bit of harm because of what the Nazis did in the 1940s — even if such alleged harm is merely a legitimate criticism of the policies of the state of Israel, and yes, I've been called antisemitic for criticizing what Israel does to the Palestinians — while right now, people are coming out in the streets and rallying in favor of protection of the Palestinian people.

    I could be wrong, but I see the situation as a perfect breeding ground for a neutral and fair arbitration — provided that such would be allowed, but that does not appear to be the case, exactly because Israel is unstoppable and has the unconditional support of both the USA and the UK. So it shouldn't just be Israel that gets taken to task, but also the Anglo-Saxon dominion that supports Israel.

    Anyway, more from Abby. below...

    note: Russia's proposal was also rejected by the security council which is comprised of China, France, Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

    But this happened a week later, a week later than it should have:

    The United Nations General Assembly on Friday adopted a resolution calling for an “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce” between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in Gaza. It also demands “continuous, sufficient and unhindered” provision of lifesaving supplies and services for civilians trapped inside the enclave, as news reports suggest Israel has expanded ground operations and intensified its bombing campaign.
