    Bill is right. Israel has the same “liberal values” as Gringoland. The zionists and british did to the Palestinians in 1948 what the british settlers did to the Apaches and Other indians in north america in the 18th and 19th centuries: kill them, put them in reservations and steal their land.

    I think Bill might be forgetting the fact that the international court of justice explicitly ruled that it is illegal for Israel to claim property as part of war – that’s why the international community is so dead set against these settlements and house destructions, and why Israel is ABSOLUTELY an occupier.

    I am appalled. Rockets are the consequence of the Palestinian genocide there. This was a rare display of an incompetent Bill Maher. THIS IS SAD FOR A REAL BILL MAHER. If you push people into such hopelessness, that is what you get. Terrorism was literally invented there for exactly this reason.

    So the atheist Bill Maher thinks “Jews” have “right” to the land because the God of Moses said so? He is seemingly as knowledgeable about the history as he is about covid!

    If they have right to something they last had any semblance of control in 65 AD, the United States should immediately give the land back to the native americans and leave!

    Seems like – just like many others, you dislike Muslims! That is the driving force of your arguments – not facts.

    I’m sick of this guy playing the ‘millennial’ card all the time, like it’s impossible that anyone under the age of 40 could possibly have a grasp on history or geopolitics because we’re all brain-dead social media zombies.
    I agree with a lot of his opinions, and even though here I don’t, I’m unsubscribing because his delivery and ideology are starting to sound more like a generational product than that of free thought.

    I think what Bill doesn’t get is, that nobody takes the side of Hamas, but rather points out, that while this conflict is bad for everybody, it is disproportionatly bad for palestinians, who suffer two-fold, from the conflict itself and of the Hams tyranny. If you look t the bodycount, there are so much more palestinians than israelis and I don’t want to say, that there should be more israelis who die, there should be less casualties. But Israel has clearly the agency to respond in a way to hamas agressions in a way, that less palestinian civilians die. Hamas isn’t acting in favor of the palestinian people, the palestinian people are disenfranchised twofold.

    Let’s see if I got this right. The God of a universe 13.5 billion years old with trillions of stars fell in love with a tribe of Bronze age shepherds and decided they were his chosen people. He explained to them that, oops, he fouled up when he designed the human body. Because of his incompetence it would be necessary for them to use surgery on their male children, he had forgotten how to modify DNA so that their kiddies would just naturally not grow a foreskin. Then 2,000 years ago he changed his mind again so that they were no longer the chosen people but all you needed to be on his favorites list was to worship his son. Not withstanding his gifts to them as the chosen people are still valid and they are still entitled to move in on people and steal their homes and property.
    If that makes sense to you you are dumb enough to admire Trump.

    Bill Maher is the worst hypocrite, he is pathetic on this subject and to be honest on many subjects he had discussed. I am shocked for someone who majored in History and English in one of the most prestigious schools in the nation that he has no clue on History. so let us go over the facts:
    1. the dispute is not between Jews and Arabs as Maher is continuously stating, it is between Zionists and Palestinians who happened to be Muslims, Christians and Jews ( Samaritan Jews who are incidentally not recognized and hated by Zionists). by the way there are non Zionist Jews who are against Zionism and the practices of Israel.
    2. Civilization on this land dates back to 15000 years with cities which still existing since 12000 BC, that is way before kingdom of Israel. the land is inhabited by the Kenites through out history.
    3. The facts are being purposely mixed over here, we have 3 words which is misused to deliberately confuse the masses, the words are Jews, Israelites and Zionists. to educate Maher on the subject, they all different, Jews came from Judaism and it was giving to those who believed in the teaching of Moses. Israelites are those who were during the kingdom of Israel, and Zionist is a movement created in 1895 in the pursuit of finding a home land for Israelites.
    4. maher stupid stand on the legitimacy of Israel is a profound hypocrisy. Maher is anti religion, however on this subject is pro religion, Israel claims it’s legitimacy from the bible, however there is nothing factual on the ground to prove that other than what is written in the Bible. there are 3 ironies here, one that Zionist, Israelites and Jews do not believe or recognize the Bible. two, the book of the Jews bans Jews from creating a country. three, Maher is anti religion.
    5. On the issue of Israel being a democracy and the way they treat Arabs citizens, did any one including Maher read the constitution of Israel? the country is a Jewish Zionist States which is their to protect and take care of Zionists’Jews, Arabs citizens happened to be there and they must put up with the situation and reflect that Israel is a democracy when in fact its a fake democracy.
    6. On the issue of Hamas, Maher is a big liar on this subject. this is not a war between 2 countries. there are indigenous inhabitant of the land who are fighting for their existence, their rights, their dignity and their land against an occupier which is ruthless, racist, criminal, and many other adjectives. if what Maher’s lies about Hamas is true, still it does not matter, they have the right to fight the occupier according to the charters of the UN and international laws.

    I am sure Bill Maher is smarter than the stupidity he shows on his program or may be not, however he chooses to be this way for financial gains. he basically sells his soul to the highest bidder.

    Aha.. so Jews have been there all this time and there were no Arabs? Really Bill Maher? is that what your history books tell you?? In 1948, millions were kicked out of their houses in Palestine and became refugees in other countries like Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and some in Egypt. Till this day, people who have been in Syria and Lebanon, born in these countries and their parents born in these countries, do not have a passport or citizenship from these countries. They are not a citizen of these countries, and definitely not a citizen of Palestine either, and thus you are considered without citizenship. They hold no passport, they can only have a travel document from UNESCO for their entire life. Those in Lebanon are not allowed to even work in Lebanon or own land there even if they are 3rd generation born there! While on the other hand, if you are a Jewish from ANY PLACE IN THE WHOLE WORLD, you get an Israeli passport and you have the right to go back to Israel. Does that make sense to you??

    The Israeli /Palestinian conflict is the longest ongoing hot & Cold War in the 20th & 21st century. Human Rights standards are the key 🔑 to a just & sustainable solution & that, tragically, no one has ever made serious use of them in trying to end the conflict. There is a relationship to surrounding world events & its similarities & differences from other conflicts, especially those embedded in American race relations. Just saying. And if I ever come across as being anti Semitic, please point it out to me because that isn’t who I am, & I will explore my own behavior. Thank you

    But no one here is discussing is that the history of the land is now irrelevant. The decisions of former leaders is now irrelevant. The only tagline since 1947 that remains true is that both peoples have a right to exist without persecution. Both groups have alternatively been oppressors and both have alternatively committed atrocities. The mentality that needs to change right now is that the ruling hardliners for each group need to stop pretending that the land is their exclusively. It will be impossible to draw lines for reasonable contiguous boarders because they share so many mutual religious and cultural ties to many regions that they will never be able to agree on it. When both sides can agree that Israel/Palestine is not the property of either side then they can move forward.

    3:24 “What if Canada fired 4000 rockets into America?” C’mon, Bill. That only works if you willfully omit the entire preceding Act in which (going with your analogy) America would’ve been illegally occupying and colonizing Canada in direct contravention of international law, pushing the border further and further north. In that analogy, America would absolutely deserve 4000 Canadian rockets up it.

    If you chose to join the story of WW2 at D-Day then then you could say the nasty allies “started it” on the poor innocent fascists who were just chilling on the beach. But that would be intellectually dishonest. History doesn’t work that way. You don’t get to choose your preferred day to “start” the story and blank-slate everything that went before, just because it suits your argument to do so.

Israel and weed and religion, passionate AF. Those things matter to him.

    1:07 In defence of the indefensible, of course Israel treats its Arabic citizens better because when Israeli officers come to kick you out of your ancestors’ home, they displace you and leave you to starve homeless instead of murdering you quickly like they do in Syria when the government wants to let Alawites illegally occupy your house. Israel does not send tanks to run over you if you protest against the government, as they do in Egypt, but only shoots your child repeatedly while he is in your arms and leave you to remember him (Does Muhammad al Durrah ring a bell?). However, let the wonderful ‘better’ treatment of Israeli Arabs aside, it is the treatment of the non-Israeli Arab populations in Gaza and other places in the country that is a bit worrisome. Well, at least Israel gives a five-minute bombing warning before crushing your house with you in it, while Syrian troops just do it with no warning: The English media has to stop this blatant bias in favour of Israel and stop this charade of a war between Israel and an imaginary sophisticated Palestinian power when Gaza and all Arab areas in Israel are clearly prisons with walls and guards; and the country practices the ugliest form of apartheid on the planet shamelessly on daily basis! Israel is made up of predominately Jewish Russian and European colonialists who began occupying the country after lobbying the British Empire to strategically segment the lands of the Ottomans in Africa from the ones in Asia. Very few Israeli citizens are even related to the Israelites who lived once in Palestine for a very limited amount of time with other large populations of older citizens, the Phoenicians and the Canaanites, which the Jewish holiest books indicate that they lived in the land before them and whose sons are the Palestinians.

    When the wheel was invented the guy, maybe a woman, who invented it did not say to his neighbour who copied him… “Hey I have intellectual property rights to this invention for 20 years, so if you are going to make a wheel you need to pay me a royalty!”

    There are no inherent rights. The Aztecs in Mexico had the “god-given” right to human sacrifice.

    There were no Geneva Convention rules of war in the past… just like there was no intellectual property rights. Everybody conquering everybody else’s land was something that happened all the time.

    I think a lot about intellectual property rights. Yes I do believe they should exist and they’re good for society and people can recoup the costs of their research or work hours creating art or entertainment.

    But any thinking person does not think I have the right to copy Viagra one day after it goes on the market, and any thinking person does not believe Pfizer should have a monopoly after 20 years.

    There’s some debate about which rights should exist… but essentially we have rights because the vast majority of people believe in a certain right.

    In the past people did not believe in the rights of Nations the same way there were no intellectual property rights.

    Those who claim that Israel doesn’t want a 2 state solution are ignorant of history. Yeah, they have the upper hand in military and technology but they have a bull’s eye on them all the time. The real bullies here are Hamas, who have the destruction of Israel in their charter.

    The most important part nearly got drowned out. They were about to form a government without Netanyahu. Which means he would lose his immunity and go to prison for corruption. So he advanced illegal evictions in East Jerusalem and then attacked the al aqsa mosque during the last Friday prayer of Ramadan. Imagine al qaida attacked the church of saint Peter in rome during Easter prayer on Easter Sunday. We would burn the Middle East to the ground.

    So Netanyahu provoked a reaction and got it. After the first rocket all the pieces fell into their usual places. Except the Arab party didn’t retreat from a possible government and it looks like Netanyahu is in his way to prison.

    I mean there are over 1000 ways to attack a country, and you use the only way which the enemy can protect it self?

    Merneptah Stele

    Now that Tehenu (Libya) has come to ruin,
    Hatti is pacified;
    The Canaan has been plundered into every sort of woe:
    Ashkelon has been overcome;
    Geyser has been captured;
    Yano’am is made non-existent.
    Israel is laid waste and his seed is not;
    Hurru is become a widow because of Egypt.”
    “Israel is laid to waste, his seed is not”. Meaning, Ancient Dynastic Egypt erased Israel by genocide.
    What is the real history behind the Rabbinim and the resurrection of Israel that gives substance to the victory of YHWH, a god of the Ancient African Tribal Midianites. How does the Rabbinical story of an Ah-or Tut-Moses marrying the daughter of the tribal chief of the Midianites give birth to a “new” Israel? YHWH was, is not a deity of historic Ancient Israel. How the Rabbinim wove and weaves a priestly web of great tsuris fueling Christianity and Islam? It happens when you skew history into allegories for the sake of power and abuse of power. Long overdue to question the religious propaganda histories that trigger atrocities and warfare. That is criminal in nature, wouldn’t you say?

    A few points about Bill Maher’s commentary/rant;

    1. Bill calls it a war. It’s not a war when one side has one of the most powerful armies in the world and the other is has a militant wing from within its organisation.

    2. One sided? Mainstream media in the US until recently has always been very pro-Israel and the minute they start to talk discuss the Palestinian perspective, Bill thinks it’s “one sided”.

    3. Kids actually do understand the issue and social media platforms helped circumvent the pro-Israel perspective. In fact, mainstream media have effectively been forced to address the Palestinian point of view because they’ve been outed for their bias.

    4. Bill talks about 4,000 rockets and then asks what should they (Israel) have done. The answer is simple. Don’t expel 6 families from Sheikh Jarrah in East Jerusalem and replace them with Zionist settlers who faked documents to claim that property that the Palestinians lived in for generations. That’s ethnic cleansing – which is a war crime.

    5. Bill talks about purposely putting rockets in civilian places, a Zionist talking point which he (Bill) just parrots. The AP categorically asked the Israelis to provide evidence when they blew up their building and they didn’t.

    6. He states that Jews have been in that area of the world since 1200 BC. Yes and no. The pre- 1897 Sabra Jews have been there but the Ashkenazi Jews are European converts and after the the 1897 World Zionist Congress, Ashkenazi migration from Europe started. In fact, the Jewish Virtual Library shows that Jews were only 8% of the population in 1897 but by 1948 they were 36% of the population.

    https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jewish-and-non-jewish-population-of-israel-palestine-1517-present

    7. Jews were in Palestine years before Arabs walked the Earth? Arabs have been in that area ~mid-9th Century.

    8. Palestine was never an Arab country. This is such a colonial European way of looking at things. Hey look. It’s not a country and therefore we can have it.

    9. The map he showed was the partition plan but what Bill conveniently forgot to show was the map prior to partition where Jews only owned 8% of the land but where given 56% so if your people owned 92%, why the fuck would you give an extra 48% away.

    https://aijac.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/lying-map-1024×677.jpeg

    10. Hamas’ original charter from the 1980s said they wanted to wipe out Israel but after the 2006 election which they democratically won, they agreed to a two-state solution based on an Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 borders and a right of return for Palestinian refugees who were ethnically cleansed (750,000 in 1948 and an additional 450,000 in 1967).

    11. Yasser Arafat didn’t accept the two-state solution offer because it wasn’t 100% of the West Bank. Settlements would remain and the settlers would still continue to get the resources. Plus, Israel would still retain control over that territory. Palestine would effectively be a series of Bantustans within occupied territory.

    Bill just comes across as though he’s on the Hasbara payroll.

    If Lord Balfour and Rothschild, hadn’t decided to give other people’s land, and Hitler didn’t perform the genocide to get them out of Germany, they wouldn’t have to steal the Palestinians land, and their last couple thousand years living there, they might not feel so attached to the land, of which they have no other option.
    Look how attached the Jews are and they can only prove 73 years there.

    Besides, Israel was the northern ten tribes, Ephraim, and Jews, built this corporation/legal fiction, on the land that was the Kingdom Of Judah.
    God gave you that land?
    I think you should reread the book. Include that new section. The one that says in Matthew 23 that your house is left desolate by the Messiah Himself, and that generation would see it and then He had the temple torn down and scattered them to the wind.

    Looks like divorce to me.

    Matthew 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

    35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

    36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

    37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

    38 *Behold, your house is left unto you desolate* .

    39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

    Are the modern Jews genetically connected to Judah?

    It has come to my attention that some of those people living in Palestine are the direct descendants of The Apostles. Though, they didn’t have to move there and take someone else’s house.

    Revelation 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

Yet that would be overseeing the religious fantasies amplified by the XXth century’s trauma. We have a reason to want peace for such people, harassed through history since the Roman empire. Again, shortcuts. Disregarding the diaspora, disregarding the view’s in Israel, the reality of being dispossessed of stability, possibility for peace, and hope for any structure. No consideration of any study, any interview, any work on both sides. Nothing. “Arabs”, 12000 B.C, … Again. Seriously? Maher’s used to be the opposite of this. No mention of the stakes? The military action and press buildings? The history with France and Britain? Okay, jokes about cavemen… Are the ultra-Orthodox not as laughable? Since when is the “they had no claim according to our set of law” argument rationally acceptable ?
    In the name of his brand, Bill Maher is imposing a view made of what he used to criticize. The methodology is lacking. Btw, the progress thing… You choose to ridicule it by attributing immature and dangerous, heinous ideas to Hadid or rather to that entire imaginary movement you’re fighting. Bringing “Arabs” and mixing it up with “Islam”, which wasn’t in the argument. Maher’s “desert people” … feeling, I guess? No distinction between law, history, and religion, not to mention the disproportionate nature of retributions. Because, yes, in light of Maher’s very argument, it’s not a matter of defense, but one of retribution. An immature lecture of a crisis and its nature. Tv shows, Instagram, and youtube don’t teach shit.

    Bill Maher did an excellent job of making the case for Israel’s right to defend itself.

    Below are some additional facts that those sympathetic solely to Palestinians and their peace-rejecting leadership will likely not find on Instagram and other sound-bite-sized social media, nor in the coverage of mainstream media like the New York Times and PBS and its associated networks:

    In 2005 Israel unilaterally removed all of its civilians and military personnel from Gaza, without requiring concessions from the Palestinian Authority which then ruled Gaza.

    Instead of building from Gaza’s newfound independence from Israel, in 2007 Hamas — whose charter demands the extinction of Israel in favor of a Palestinian state “from the river to the sea” — seized control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority.

    They, along with other terrorist groups, began an unending campaign of violence against Israel, including firing missiles across the border into civilian areas in southern Israel, sending incendiary balloons and kites which have destroyed thousands of acres of Israeli land, and building “terror tunnels” to infiltrate Israel and kill civilians.

    It was then that Israel and Egypt began the blockade of Gaza to prevent Hamas from importing military supplies; however food, medical and other civilian supplies have been allowed past the blockade. Cement intended for civilian building in Gaza has been used instead extensively for building terror tunnels.

    Interestingly, the blockade has clearly not succeeded in preventing Hamas from obtaining materials for committing acts of terrorism, which has been blatantly apparent throughout the blockade and prominently in the last few weeks when over 4000 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israeli civilian areas far north of the usual targets in southern Israel.

    The rockets in Gaza are intentionally stored and launched from heavily populated areas, near residential housing, hospitals and schools so that when Israel attempts to defensively destroy the military facilities there will be civilian casualties. While Israel takes extraordinary measures to notify Gazan civilians before these attacks (phone messages, flyers, etc.) whenever possible, they can’t guarantee that no civilians will be killed, but clearly Israel does not target civilians; it targets military infrastructure.

    On the other hand Hamas and too many many Gazans glory in their civilian casualties, some of which have resulted from their own missiles erroneously landing within Gaza itself. Sadly they benefit from women and children who are killed, because the numbers inflame the international perception of Israel as a purveyor of “disproportionate” action and war crimes. Note that some number of the casualties — we don’t know the numbers — are themselves military actors, including, sadly, teenagers described as “children”.

    Again, I congratulate Bill Maher for promoting a more balanced narrative of Israel’s plight which may help fend off the vilification of Israel and the associated acts of antisemitism that always accompany conflagrations in the region.

    Israel does not need to be defended. The Likud-Hamas syndicate is the problem and indefensible, as much as Trump and the GOP are. Maher is flat out myopic here. The rockets were not fired out of a vacuum. The idea he talks about the occupation as if it was a joke is absurd. The occupation is illegal and not disputed, plus he ignores that Likud CREATED Hamas, to defeat Fatah. Absurd.

    As a Jewish person who has been firmly in support of both Palestinian and Israeli sovereignty (the 2 state solution), and who has been appalled both by Hamas shooting 4,000 rockets at Israeli civilians and by the evictions of Palestinians, marginalization of Arab Israelis/Palestinian citizens of Israel, and actions by some settlers and some in the Israeli government, my heart has been breaking due to constant hate directed at me and at the only Jewish majority state in the world over the past several weeks. The antisemitism and inter-generational is very real, very severe, and very painful. It has been awful to see some on the Right act like the Israeli government can do no wrong and Palestinians aren’t even human or that all are terrorists (nevermind that most can’t stand Hamas, who oppresses them as well and killed some of their own from the rockets); and it has felt like betrayal as a Leftist to feel the amount of extreme, non-nuanced, one-sided anti-Jewish anti-Israel overt and subconscious bias some have; the level of pure vitriol and hate directed at my people and like, all Israelis and all Jews; that people take it to the level that we don’t even have a right to have our own country. Bill Maher’s mother was Jewish, so he is Jewish. He didn’t even know she was Jewish until he was an adult as her side of the family came from Hungary and endured severe Holocaust/Shoah trauma (people have dealt with it in different ways). Bill isn’t defending the evictions or the settlers or the abuses from the Israeli government and settlers. But, he is reacting as he is, clearly from inter-generational trauma, which quite understandably makes people defensive. He is correct that people have used a lot of language against Israel that isn’t accurate. We can call it messed up and horrible and wrong but it isn’t genocide, for instance; and this matters because the words used will either help make a positive change for Palestinians and Israelis alike (both have suffered enough) or it’ll fuel the spikes in antisemitic violence as have seen. We are only 14 million Jews in all the world and we can thank Hitler and others for the small number. There are 450 million Arabs and 1 billion Muslims. The only sane solution is a free Palestinian state alongside a free Jewish one. Let’s hope that the leadership of Palestine and the leadership of Israel will improve and accept the compromises necessary to create a lasting peace.

    When israel left the gaza strip, the Palestinians “got to vote”: they voted for hamas, a murderous terrorist organisation. And hamas votes for terrorism, time and time again.
    They choose to spent the money they get not at rebuilding gaza, but on building the expansive “gaza metro” a terrorist network of tunnels and arming themselves with more rockets for the next round of terrorist fire. (Right now they forbid a traditional flag dance through jerusalem and in the kotel, tommorow who knows. They are still terrorists, no matter how you paint it. They issue a threat, and if israel does not abide to their demands they attack, and are not accountable because israel clearly triggered them.)
    About the civilian casualties, the comparison between deciding to put one main israeli base in a city, to hamas obsession for firing rockets “from civilians, on civilians” and making it impossible to stop the rocket fire without harming civilians. While israel builds iron dome to protect civilians and gives warnings to uninvolved civilians to get out of harm’s way, hamas is using them as human shields,and if they die that’s some good PR points right? They are evil, and sadly the world’s eagerness to make israel the villian only makes them continue and further their wicked ways.

    Maher thinks he’s teaching history here. This guest is not unreasonable, but clearly Maher only wants to hear from extremist Netanyahu defenders and pretend like they are the dominating majority opinion. More and more jews around the world and in Israel are done with these lies, and do empathize with the Palestinians and their right to tell their own story instead of having it told for them by their oppressors to justify warcrimes. Maher is laying out the conflict for you and doesn’t even mention the Irgun and the Haganah, committing absolute atrocities in strategic places to displace a civilian population from its homeland, and force them to flee, bravely documented by Israeli historians. “Fear is an extra battalion”, was the famous reasoning behind it, very much like more recent military landgrabs, ethnic cleansings and state creations in other parts of the world. The whole Netanyahu-age/strategy of ‘mowing the lawn’ was always disgusting & corrupt and he should be remembered as a great villain of humanity, as new generations of Palestinians and Israeli work towards real peace and equality. Broad international condemnation is absolutely crucial for this. You are not an antisemite for condemning vile oppressive military abuses, extrajudicial killings and atrocities, and the geneva convention qualifies those who resist a military occupation as freedom fighters, not terrorists. You can’t defend certain actions & warcrimes by Hamas, but people living under military occupation for not and never accepting the injustice perpetrated on them, will not be forced into obedience and their fighting spirit should be reminiscent of the universal strength people of all colours, cultures and convictions possess when suffering through systemic injustice.

    I think it’s interesting that Maher starts the segment off by claiming that people don’t know the history and that the left wants to be unnuanced, but then he basically settles on a one-sided non-nuanced argument himself. The more interesting conversation with the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is not who’s more right, but how you’re going to get two opposing sides, both with a mountain of history and context fueling their decisions, to reconcile that they both want to live in the region and will need to coexist.

    Also, I’m a little curious where he thinks all these need-to-learn-more young people got their knowledge ethic, because it seems to me like our shift away from nuance and toward such binary thinking isn’t isolated to this current generation …

Then after a long historical processes you got kicked out and the land changed hands. This was how the world works. But in the modern times, there is something called human rights. There was no human rights in ancient times so you do whatever the hell you want when you are a victor. But even in the eyes of the world, Israel continues to mistreat the Palestinians today. Israel’s goal is to turn Palestine back into Israel, despite human rights, despite modernity, despite the historical processes, and even if it requires a genocide, literally or culturally both. That’s the issue here Bill. Your understanding of history needs to include those parts I mentioned.

    Trying to equate Hamas to Palestine is an equivocation. One is a terrorist organization and the other is (or attempts to be) a state. However, such state is not acknowledged by Israel. If they did, then this could very well be a war between 2 nations…. or even more, like in the 60’s.

    I’m neither pro on either side of the stupidity in the Middle East. Funny though that religious groups are always looking to war to settle simple differences. As far as I know the creator is not in the real estate business. Yet it is labeled the promised land. I guess when you create the god you pray to you can claim any argument.

    Everyone attacks Israel for what they have done and you can but you need to also put your anger at Jordan and Egypt who have not helped and don’t want Palestinians.

    Mr Maher,
    if you are going to say that we have to look at the history of Palestine,
    then as an avowed agnostic, I do not think you can expect us to believe that you accept the bible as history, which it isn’t. There have been semitic(which does not mean jewish) people in that part of the world since “civilization” began. It has had armies pillaging all over it for almost as long.

    The Kingdom of Judea, which is used to justify Israel’s “right” to the land of Palestine,
    was dismantled by the Romans in the 1st century CE. 2 thousand years ago. That does not mean that all the jews then left the area. They didn’t. Not even a minority of them left. They just accepted that
    a king whom most of them found overbearing and taxed them at whim, was replaced by a power that still did that too, but was a bit more distant, and was perceived as more even handed and reasonable. There were those who resisted to their dying, but it didn’t work out. Suffice it to say that the Kingdom of Judea ceased to be what it was, and stayed absent from that area for 1,848 years;
    a little beyond the statute of limitations for possession. In any court of law, including roman courts.

    Let me provide a parallel. If say, the Indigenous people, whom I think we agree were the possessors of the territory you currently abide in, were to suddenly find a champion or two in say, China and the EU,
    and those entities were to pass a “binding resolution” that gave that land back to them…and you were forced, suddenly, under threat and without compensation, to move out of the home you have lived in for, say a decade…what would your reaction be?
    In the case of the Palestinians, they are being forced out of homes, some of which have been their families’ for generations, indeed back to the time of Judea, and before.

    You speak some sense when you talk about the KKK here in America, but when Israel comes into focus, you are blind, the story of Israel and the Arabs, is the story of red Indians and America today, I mean come on, king David give me a break 😂

    Bill Mahers You you are showing your ignorance. You forget the history of the middle east and how Arabs and jews, Iranians and jews, north Africans and jews lived together in peace until European Jews and Zionists colonized Palestine with the help of western countries who really felt guilty and really did not want to take in the European Jews. If there was no Palestine, it was because the British had co!ionized it, just like there was no real Lebanon, or Syria, yes, even Israel.

    We only ever get two choices in this world run by narcissists and their simple minded, black and white thinking. One side is absolutely right and the other absolutely wrong, or vice versa. What about neither side is right, nor was the UN right, or the British?

    And why am I required to hold an opinion on everything and defend it to the death? Why can’t this be somebody else’s problem that’s got nothing to do with me and is far too complex for me to wrap my head around without taking the time to fully study the history or having any desire to?

    This is all narcissistic ways of thinking, and the trouble with the world is that we’ve let the narcissists force their inane mindless interpretations of the world on all of us. Do yourself a favor and educate yourself on narcissism, stop enabling them, and reject the utter stupidity that they’ve taken over the world with. Modern science is developing a new, much more sophisticated understanding of narcissism than we’ve ever had, and narcissism is usually not what people think it is, but rather much more complicated and severe than people realize. There’s a whole community talking about it on youtube. Search for it and binge watch. It’ll change your life.

    Genesis 25:9 “And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre” Machpelah is now known as Hebron, so if the Bible says Jews father Isaac and Arabs father Ishmael, who by the way were brothers, buried their father Abraham in Hebron; the same land in the dispute now, does Bill’s argument of who got there first before 3000 years make any sense, just asking? Here we have two brothers fighting over a plot of land from their own father and the world is divided on who is the real owner !!!!! peace please.

    Bill Maher is biased on this subject! The state of Israel is responsible for ethnic-cleansing and displacement! If they weren’t illegally evicting Palestinians, and limiting, food, vaccines, and much else!

    The illegal evictions and attacking peaceful practitioners of Islam at the third holiest Muslim site in the world!

    Maher get your act together, because you don’t know how terrible the state of Israel is being AGAIN!

    FYI, I’m not a Palestinian, nor am I an Israeli, nor am I a Jewish person; I am a human being, who lives in america and is tired of this imperialistic crap that america wastes tax dollars on. Maher is generally renting about American interventions and wrongdoings, but not when it comes to all Islamic people, especially Palestinians!

    There are quite a few anti-zionist jews in this world, so don’t be like a pro-fascist, pro-apartheid, pro-ethnic cleansing, pro-zionist, anti-equality for Palestinian lives, because then you would be bill Maher.
