Re: POTUS 2020, part 1

Hi Paul He wants Bernie out in front, and for the DNC to panic and for the super-delegates to try stealing the nomination away from Bernie. I agree in general, except on wanting Bernie to be in front is open to interpretations. I think president Trump is politically savvy and very intuitive, more th...

Re: POTUS 2020, part 1

This is what Trump tweeted: Looks like Crazy Bernie is doing well in the Great State of Nevada. Biden & the rest look weak, & no way Mini Mike can restart his campaign after the worst debate performance in the history of Presidential Debates. Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away fro...

Re: Adolf Hitler reincarnated as Rainbow Child SJW

It's a big paradox that Israel has to figure out. Are they a theocracy or a democracy? I say, let's put it to the test. The paradox perhaps has to do with the diaspora. The idea of a third Jewish state is inseparable from antisemitism in Europe, and the fact that most Jewish immigrants from Europe ...

Re: Adolf Hitler reincarnated as Rainbow Child SJW

If all the Arabs in the region voted, they could elect a Prime Minister from the Joint List and it would no longer be a Jewish state, Jewish ruled nation. How does that fit with Israel's insistence in being recognized by Palestinians as a Jewish state as a per-condition to sign a peace agreement? T...

Re: Trump vs. Pelosi

I did not listen to the speech, but i am not sure what was she trying to achieve by tearing up the speech transcript. Division seems to be essential to ruling. The two party system provides a conceptual political spectrum of which candidates can nominate themselves and voters can choose. Ideally, th...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

Bundokji was saying nothing more than this, yet his words clearly triggered a sub-routine in the NPC programming. Time to let go of this stupidity, please. Thanks Paul :namaste: He also ignored the preceding sentence, which provides context: we are talking how Arabs handled the conflict, we are not...

It would be very boring indeed if everyone was in favor of respecting the 5 precepts and if a Buddhist forum required conversations to not include blanket characterization of "arabs" as "stupid" and stoking enmity as "legit" and "useful".
Who characterized Arabs as stupid?

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

I have an ingenious peace plan for the Middle East. (Okay, not really ingenious as it's not original.) Instead of giving almost all the land to Israel, Palestine only getting 70% of the West Bank (Trump proposal); just go back to the 1947 UN Agreement. I know, the Jews accepted that, danced on the ...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

this proposal is obviously the work of an insane megolomaniac, Palestinians will never have any thing to do with it, its a joke and an insult to the intelligence of the Palestinian people. It is their intention that would determine the quality of their actions whether they accept or reject the prop...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

Kafr Aqab and Shuafat are not really part of Jerusalem. They are suburbs with some distance from the actual city of Jerusalem. (I lived in Jerusalem for 2 years back in the late 1970s and bicycled through many parts daily.) Maybe, but the plan will allow a special tourist area for the Palestinians ...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

If there is anything about history of the Middle East for the last 100 + years, it is that goodwill is close to zero and enemies abound. So practically speaking, using Iran the enemy is legit and useful. If the plan is to create a better future, then the past is something to learn from. If goodwill...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

Where do you see that? To me, it looks like Jerusalem is all in Israel's hands and the Palestinians just get some piece of land to the East of Jerusalem, not really Jerusalem, to call as their capital. From the peace plan page 21 While a physical division of the city must be avoided, a security bar...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

I also think that both the Palestinians and the Israelis should be grateful for the US mediation efforts (when they do not have to). Their generosity extends to spend some of their tax payers money into economic developments for the Palestinians in particular and the region in general. This kind of ...

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

What i disliked about the peace plan though is its reference to Iran as a mutual threat. Regional integration can be achieved through good will, not necessarily through reference to a common enemy.

Re: Trump mideast Peace Plan

The plan is realistic and if the Palestinians really have the intention for peace, they should accept it. The plan does not divide Jerusalem and allows it to be the capital for both nations. If the Palestinians negotiate skillfully, they should focus on $$$$ when it comes to Muslim sites. The plan s...
