Can anyone stay on topic and share ones thoughts about the war on terrorism?
DO I HAVE TO TERRORIZE YOU into compliance?
Should I call BW Police?
It's not uncommon for threads here to fracture along several different parallel lines. As to why they all seem to converge on the Arab-Israeli conflcit perhaps has something to do with the fact that it's the arabs who are maintaining that the root cause of terrorism is related to Israeli "occupation."

Many of us see the threat as much more complex than that.

In any case I have to say that the last few pages of debate have been instructive, have proceeded with minimal rancor and have served to crystallize the arguments of the respective sides. And I'm grateful to rstone for presenting (what appears to be) the minority view here.

No shit. You guys have hijacked about four threads with your own eternal versions of the Six Days War. Can't one of you start a "Jew's Suck" while the other does a "Why I love Israel" thread?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Regardless of what you believe, according to a number of historians and scholars, many of the Arabs of Jerusalem today, indeed the majority of Palestinian Arabs, are descendants of the ancient Jebusites and Canaanites. That is all that matters.
Kidding me again, aren't you?

Can't resist: how could they make Jesus Christ crucified if there weren't any of them? Oh my poor darling..

Jews came back after King Kir Of Persia destroyed Babylonians.

They lived there happily until the Diadoches, Antioch of Syria to be exact, started to prosecute them.

Then Maccabbees have arised and Israel/Judea was free again.

Then the Romans came.

They managed to rule Judea/Israel for some time. Then there was an Uprising (google Josef Flavius my poor darling uneducated history student).

Then Flavians (Bespasianus and then his son Titus) were faced with Judea uprising. Titus destroyed the second temple. Jews were conquered and left without their country for 2000 years.

In 1948, thanks to the UK, Soviet and Belorussia representatives Jewish State was declared. Only to be attacked by the next morning by organized arab armed forces leaded by British General.

The rest is history. Or the history is the rest.

Since we solved the Arab-Israeli dispute in the previous posts (at least on paper) I can now tackle this question....

Here's a link to a site that explains it: http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/us...or_alerts.html

The US has a color coded system. Britain and Australia have "terror alert" levels.

France was going to implement a color coded system as well. However they soon discovered that only a single color is needed for the white flag.
