Locked: Why isn't Israel heavily sanctioned? (Double Standards!)

Forums - Politics Discussion - Why isn't Israel heavily sanctioned? (Double Standards!)

Okay. I'll keep it simple.

Russia has received lots of sanctions for illegal border activity and violence. UN, USA, EU, NATO are all acting rapidly against their "threat", which hasn't even materialized yet.

Israel has stolen land and killed thousands of civilians, but aside from a few vocal warnings, everyone has shown horrible double standards and let their actions slide. Furthermore, the media coverage has been atrocious.

Yeah, IMO, Israel should be hit with devastating sanctions that affect its economy in a great way. I said it.

@bold - hasn't materialized yet? WTF? Ask the passengers of the Malaysia Airlines jet about it, or thousands of dead Ukrainians. They invaded yet another country in the course of just a couple years, conquered a huge piece of land (Crimea) and now are waging war in the rest of the country with thousands of their soldiers. If that's not a materialized threat, I don't know what is.

@ Israel - it won't be punished, because America is the Jews' little bitch and does whatever they tell it to do.

You also have this, which is another reason why Russia should be stopped asap. They are as savage as it gets.

I'm in no way defending the Israeli, they and Jihad are worth one another, both equally qualify to be called terrorists, but at least one group tries to get to a positive destination and get civilized. The same can be said about neither Jihad, nor Russians.

Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

I knew Israel wasn't "occupying" Gaza. It was an annexation.

Because Gaza launched missiles at them first.  I mean it's pretty simple bud...

A couple weeks ago at work, in the break room, I walked in on a typical southern political conversation about "that Obama". I usually ignore political talk but this one caught my interest when one guy said, "the next thing you know, he'll go against Israel and then America will be finished because the bible says not to go against Israel."

The interesting part wasn't really that one guy said it, it was that pretty much everyone in the room was in agreement.

I wonder if Israel killed their parents, tortured their children, and raped their pets, if they'd just go, "aw shucks, nothing we can do, Israel is such a scamp, lol."

So, yeah, it's embarrassing to say, but the US is Israel's female dog.



Think of what North Korea is to China here in Asia and that's what Israel is to the US for the Middle East.

As for Russia there was no conflict in Ukraine to begin with and then Putin started flexing his muscle. So they deserve to be sanctioned one way or another.



Because the US.



Israel as a state came into being under UN mandate in 1948. On the day it cam into being every Arab nation that bordered Israel attacked, militarily. And the region has been a hot violent mess from that point on. Israel's existence has been under threat from the moment is came into being. You can argue the merits of giving the Jewish people a piece of Palestine as compensation for the virtual genocide of Europe's (and Rusia's) Jewish population.

No doubt, Israel has done some unjustified things under the guise of self defence. But the situation with Israel is in no way comparable with the Russia/Ukraine situtation. Therefore it is pure ignorance to be claiming hypocrisy because Russia is being sanctioned and Israel is not.

In my view Israel should be forced to live within it's 1968 UN recognised orders and all the Westbank settlements should be depopulated, or the residents there should become citizens of the Palestinian state. And I think Jerusalem, unfortunately needs to become 2 cities. But by the same token all the Arab countries, Iran and the Palestinians need to officially recognise the state of Israel and vow never to take aggressive action against it.

Long term I actually believe a one state solution is the only viable situation for Israel and Palestine. But before that happens both countries need to properly secularise, and that's quite a way off.

Why can't the palestinians just move on, like every other conquered people in history. Terrorism and hatred is their petulant response to their own failure and incompetence.
