Israel’s actions of stealing Palestinians homes and land demolishing complete townships and building illegal settlements thereon (victim, how are you?) I ask the Morning View author what would their reaction be if his (her) neighbour stole their home and lands and destroyed them all and build themselves a new homestead?
I await their answer.
As for Israel being a flourishing democracy and civilisation, again you are having a laugh.
Even the world’s worst dictatorship would not act as Israel does towards it nearest neighbour (Palestine). Yes, they are certainly flourishing – who wouldn’t be if they were first awarded another’s people’s country Palestine by the British; then continue to annex (steal) even more Palestinian lands.
What other democracy does Morning View know of that when an individual decides they can take no more (everybody has a breaking point) they strike back at their torturer, terroriser and land stealer? – which is wrong but understandable.
Morning View’s flourishing democracy sends in the IDF to demolish the alleged terrorist family homes and business.
A dictatorship is how most sane people would describe Israel.
To be a democracy a country must have international recognised borders and only citizens who reside or have done so can vote in that country’s elections.
I ask News Letter’s readers: does Israel meet those democratic standards?
