150. Point To Gaza On a Map
Mon Apr 22, 2024, 03:24 PM
Apr 22

Ask these fine college students to point to Gaza on a world map.

If they're so upset about genocide, they need to worry about Sudan and Congo, too. But, the Sudanese and Congolese aren't making TikToks about being murdered.

People of all backgrounds Tickle Apr 22 #1
Yes, It's clear that's what the protests are calling for, and I strongly agree. Think. Again. Apr 22 #2
How are the protests calling for people of all backgrounds feeling safe? betsuni Apr 22 #3
The protests are calling for a ceasefire... Think. Again. Apr 22 #4
As you know, Hamas isn't interested in a ceasefire. Terrorists are often like that. betsuni Apr 22 #6
I don't put any credence into what hamas wants. Think. Again. Apr 22 #8
I don't understand. They are the Palestinian government, aren't they? betsuni Apr 22 #9
I agree with you that hamas is a terrorist organization.... Think. Again. Apr 22 #11
Don't understand this either. betsuni Apr 22 #12
Yes, it's a complex situation. Think. Again. Apr 22 #14
Then why the simplistic America Bad as if the U.S. president betsuni Apr 22 #15
I don't believe I was in on that discussion... Think. Again. Apr 22 #17

They think that's clever. I'm with you: The hell with Netanyahu, the hell with Hamas. Who's looking out ... marble falls Apr 22 #27

Arre 6iu saying we shouldn't believe Hamas when they say they don't want a ceasefire? ShazzieB Apr 22 #21
I don't pay any attention to hamas wants... Think. Again. Apr 22 #24
How do you know that the citizens of Gaza want a ceasefire? betsuni Apr 22 #26
I can't be expecte to take that question seriously. Think. Again. Apr 22 #34
Why won't Hamas agree to a ceasefire? Why do they want war? betsuni Apr 22 #37
I don't know and I don't care... Think. Again. Apr 22 #39
Hamas is the government. betsuni Apr 22 #40
Luckily... Think. Again. Apr 22 #42
Hamas isn't the government? How so? betsuni Apr 22 #45
Magical thinking Mountainguy Apr 22 #102
Hamas actually is the government. bottomofthehill Apr 22 #176
How is a protest at Columbia supposed to accomplish that? shrike3 Apr 22 #60
Okay, so if Hamas doesn't want a ceasefire, that means there won't be a ceasefire. Jedi Guy Apr 22 #142
But Hamas is one of the parties that has to agree to a ceasefire. ShazzieB Apr 22 #32
hamas is a terrorist organization. Think. Again. Apr 22 #35
Okay. But they're also the government. shrike3 Apr 22 #61
We all know Hamas is a terrorust organization. So what? ShazzieB Apr 22 #123
Is there an echo in here? ShazzieB Apr 22 #127
Maybe they should let their government know, then mcar Apr 23 #189
I hope you're not trying to be humorous about... Think. Again. Apr 23 #190
Nothing humorous at all about murderous terrorists mcar Apr 23 #191
Because the citizens of Gaza don't agree with you. Think. Again. Apr 23 #192
How many Gazans don't recognize Hamas as their government? Happy Hoosier Apr 22 #46
"'We're not Hamas': Gaza residents say airstrikes are putting civilians in grave danger" Think. Again. Apr 22 #56
Doesn't answer the question. Happy Hoosier Apr 22 #62
Yeah, they're not really in a position to take part in a poll right now. Think. Again. Apr 22 #65
Au contraire mon ami sarisataka Apr 22 #95
Nope, your poll is out of date... Think. Again. Apr 22 #105
Interesting as it says sarisataka Apr 22 #109
But without Hamas' cooperation there can be no ceasefire. shrike3 Apr 22 #63
Wiping out a terrorist organization... Think. Again. Apr 22 #67
So, you support wiping out Hamas? How? Boots on the ground? Bombings? shrike3 Apr 22 #68
I absolutely support wiping out hamas... Think. Again. Apr 22 #73
Hoo-boy. Good luck with that. shrike3 Apr 22 #74
You're probably right... Think. Again. Apr 22 #78
I strongly suspect Americans won't want it that way. shrike3 Apr 22 #82
I disagree... Think. Again. Apr 22 #93
You mean average people who are barely paying attention to the election in their own country? shrike3 Apr 22 #101
I mean the same Americans you suggested would be against taking out hamas. Think. Again. Apr 22 #108
Fine. Would open up a whole world of problems, but that's my thinking. shrike3 Apr 22 #133
I am all for America taking Hamas out. Eko Apr 22 #161
How? Boots on the ground? Bombing? shrike3 Apr 22 #166
Boots on the ground primarily. Eko Apr 22 #167
Oh, that has gone so well the other times we tried it. shrike3 Apr 22 #168
Do you think we would do worse than what is happening now? Eko Apr 22 #169
Yeah, I think we could. Afghanistan comes to mind. shrike3 Apr 22 #170
Maybe so, Eko Apr 22 #171
How do you know we wouldn't be shelling civilians? shrike3 Apr 23 #180
Because you asked me how we would do it. Eko Apr 23 #181
Because it was told in confidence to me by a family member. Who won a Bronze star and other commendations shrike3 Apr 23 #183
Maybe you should take a step back and take a breath. Eko Apr 23 #193
I don't need to take a breath. shrike3 Apr 23 #194
I'm sorry. Eko Apr 23 #195

Then I'm sure this protest will be very effective eShirl Apr 22 #10
Yeah, no. A ceasefire means Hamas goes back to terrorist strikes. yardwork Apr 22 #124
I fear you're right. shrike3 Apr 23 #184
I was just about to ask the same thing! ShazzieB Apr 22 #5

what do you think yelling "go back to Poland" to American Jews means? MistakenLamb Apr 22 #16
You would have to ask the individuals yelling that... Think. Again. Apr 22 #19
Ask them what? ShazzieB Apr 22 #22
MistakenLamb asked me a question, I was answering them. Think. Again. Apr 22 #25
I see that now. ShazzieB Apr 22 #38
"individuals"? betsuni Apr 22 #28
Yes... Think. Again. Apr 22 #30
I dont think any of us can possibly know exactly what the original purpose of the protests was. ShazzieB Apr 22 #43
It was clearly a protest to demand a ceasefire. Think. Again. Apr 22 #55
But in an earlier post, you said that Hamas needed to be eradicated. wnylib Apr 22 #92
hamas is a terrorist organization... Think. Again. Apr 22 #100
That isn't clear at all, given the behavior of people at the thing. yardwork Apr 22 #152
Or condemn them. marble falls Apr 22 #76
Don't put words in my mouth, please. ShazzieB Apr 22 #128
How do you know? Did you organize it? yardwork Apr 22 #151
Do you apply the same rules to neo nazis forthemiddle Apr 22 #155
Correct... Think. Again. Apr 22 #164

So it's cool Jews are harassed on the street, since people of color are also? shrike3 Apr 22 #64
Stop, that's a false equivalence and you know it. Think. Again. Apr 22 #70
No, it's not. You're the one who brought up people of color, not me. shrike3 Apr 22 #71
It is clearly a false equivalence and I won't continue with your bad-faith discussion. Think. Again. Apr 22 #75
I'm crushed. shrike3 Apr 22 #77
You falsely equated all of that with somehow being "okay". Think. Again. Apr 22 #81
What else am I supposed to think? shrike3 Apr 22 #84
You pretended to be surprised that Americans... Think. Again. Apr 22 #94
Guess you're not done, eh? shrike3 Apr 22 #96
