You know I read through your comments several times saying to myself, "No, this is a smart guy, our arguments must just be paralleling with each other, we must just be nit picking the fine details."

But every single time I read your statement "had me a bit confused at first because they didn't seem to hold any historical basis...strong examples of revisionism and honestly have no place in a serious argument." I finally had to admit that you're simply trolling and don't even know history your commenting on.

You know though its strange european news agencies and multiple Colleges and Universities seem to disagree with you like for instance
BBC
or Penn State.

Oh and here is Dartmouth College's map of the region

3.) Concerning the maps of palestine in 1920 that you consider confusing, not holding "any historical basis" and "pretty strong examples of revisionism."

Perhaps you tell me what is incorrect about them? Perhaps you can even provide what a map of Palestine in 1920 looked like? Or maybe the map of Transjordan and palestine after the Transjordan Memorandum in 1922 that doesn't look like this one? Oh yes, I would be VERY INTERESTED to see how you believed it looked like since you have such a better grasp of history.

Because after all, my maps are "strong examples of revisionism and honestly have no place in a serious argument."

Where did you get this idea that my "theory" was "that the whole of Palestine as it is understood in 1946/1947"? Please quote me where I said that. I didn't even say a date as, I already stated earlier, I only said "They split palestine," so when did they split Palestine? When were they planning an Oil pipeline? Hmmmmm? Not 1946, thats for sure, but nice strawman argument none the less.

2.) I never ever said "Palestine was destined exclusively as a Jewish state by the British and the other great powers." This is simply an example of another strawman argument you're trying to knock down.

@xavroche:

ROFL, so you are, to use your words "confused," and you don't think the maps I showed "hold any historical basis" and are "examples of revisionism." And you just can't understand why I get caught up on the dates of your map. You think any map from a Jew is biased. Wow, you really don't know history do you and you accused me of revisionism, lol.

Ok, let me spell it out for you.

1. The dates on your map matter because they take place in 1946 not at 1920 when the Mandate of Palestine was created. Its a great map, very accurate, its just the wrong time period and that kinda matters. I can show a map of America's borders in the 1960's and it would show Alaska, but that doesn't mean Alaska was a state in the 1940's. Similarly, just because you show a map with the boundaries of 1946 doesn't mean they were the same in 1920.

"Oversimplification."

"Even as al Qaeda's leadership in Pakistan struggles to remain relevant, the terrorist threat we face has become more diverse, Al Qaeda has turned to other groups to carry out attacks and to advance its ideology. These groups are based in an array of countries, including Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria and in Iraq."

"This never happened, though keeping Pakistani nukes secured in the long term may one day become a major concern."

No sorry you're wrong, it just wasn't widely reported. Go to 53:31 on the video LINK

"Oversimplification of ongoing territorial disputes."
Sorry, I see you as understating it, the Council of National Defense approved the draft of the full-scale rearmament of the country specifically because of China. LINK

Iran is just as bad, routinely parading banners on long range missiles that say "Israel must be uprooted and wiped off the pages of history."

"It is very naive to think that if Iran had a nuke it would immediately lob it at Tehran."
I'm sure it would since Tehran is the largest city of Iran, but if you mean Israel...

They have armed and prepared to use their nukes "the Samson Option" in October 6 1973, January 18 1991, and possibly in 2003. According to the Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations Israel will conduct a preemptive attack on any possible attack using conventional, chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.

It never says that all people are necessarily born entirely equal to another in status, form, or ability. He is saying the imperfections of one will never outweigh the advantages to such a point were it becomes impossible for the advantageous one to be truly safe, if a person truly willed something it would happen.

Therefore systems that depended on the pure subjugation of a society would be found unstable and given time I think we have seen that truth.

Of course this gif is bashing our values in such a way, yet I think it is highlighting the fact that all people tend to be more accepting of other people that are more like them before accepting person of a different culture.
Its America imposing its value of "melting in a melting pot" onto citizens with the constant need to integrate in new ways and sometimes forcibly. And sometimes the Country has seen times of resentment because of that. But its the American Value that has always sought opportunit

@mesovortex: "However, right now, they are not slow and gradual. They are rapid. When climate changes rapidly in the past it caused mass extinctions.Why would you willingly want to go through one?"

Firstly, any extinctions that happen are going to happen from over hunting/fishing, sprawling, or pesticides, not global warming. And it isn't that I want to go threw one, I just believe the change in weather is natural, not man induced, which you don't seem to be grasping. The earth has changed far quicker like 130 thousand years ago years ago when temperature increased by 9 degrees celsius. If you compare now to then, our rate of increase actually looks a little more stable.

Secondly, I agree with most sentiments here that the news is heavily biased. 46% of all Liberals and 49% of all Moderates also agree this is true.
