I think ALL of you posting in this thread could do with rereading the rules of the forum, and that applies to those of you who choose to simply complain rather than use the Report system in dealing with broken rules.

This thread will be locked until next week to give everyone here a chance to re-familiarize themselves with the rules of the forum... then we'll try re-opening it and giving it another go.

To make things nice and easy:
RedOranje wrote:Usage Guidelines




  • Posting nudity, pornography, profanity, pictures containing profanity, vulgarity, hate speech, hostile comments or threats of violence or death, is strictly prohibited and will result in removal of offending posts and potential expulsion from the community.

  • Attempts of any kind to circumvent the profanity filter in any manner will result in removal of the post and a warning. Repeated attempts will result in a ban.
    This includes; removal of a letter/letters, addition of a letter/letters, number(s) or symbol(s) to a filtered word.

  • Advertising of any kind, spamming, solicitations, trolling and posts discussing moderator actions (DOMA) are not allowed.

  • Each member is allowed one login account therefore registering with multiple accounts is not allowed. Failure to comply will result in a permanent ban. Creating a secondary account while the primary account is banned is considered as owning multiple accounts and will result in the permanent ban for both accounts and any future accounts.

  • Please keep messages productive by keeping subject matter of posts on-topic with the board focus. Off-topic or unproductive posts will be moved and/or removed for the benefit of all members.

  • Also while these rules cover most common situations, they cannot anticipate everything. Consequently we reserve the right to take any actions we deem appropriate to ensure these forums are not disrupted or abused in any way.

  • We reserve the right to remove offensive posts without notice. We also reserve the right to ban anyone, temporarily or permanently, who is deemed to have willfully violated the forum rules, as access to our forums are a privilege and not a right.

  • The administrators and moderators will be monitoring the information posted to the site; however, accuracy of content cannot be guaranteed. While we will attempt to monitor the content of the forums as constantly as possible, there may be times when we are not able to deal with infringements immediately. Please be patient as all reported posts will be dealt with in as timely a fashion as possible.

  • All messages express the views of the author, and neither the administrators nor moderators of Goallegacy forums, nor Forummotion (hosts of this forum) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

  • We do not claim ownership for any material posted on these forums, including pictures, links and news paper articles.

  • By posting on these forums you agree to follow the rules stated herein, and heed the decisions of the moderators and administrators who enforce them.

  • By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, discriminating or otherwise violative of any laws.

  • The administrators of Goallegacy forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason. Their word is final on all such cases stated above.



Users who break these rules will be either warned if the offense is minor, have their warning level reduced if the offense is moderate, or banned, temporarily or permanently, if the offense is severe. The severity of the Moderator or Administrator action will depend on the severity of the offense; however, listed below are possible consequences for each offense.

Common, minor offenses such as circumnavigating the filter or derailment of a thread will result in a warning, either through a post by a member of the staff or via private message by a member of the staff or removal of the post and a warning. Explanations about the warning are not required by the staff.

Moderate offenses, such as DOMA or trolling or repeated minor offenses, such a repeated profanity will result in a reduction in the warning level or removal of the post/posts and a reduction in the warning level. The amount reduced from the warning level is dependent on the offense and will be decided by the staff. The staff will give an explanation of the reduction to the individual either in the relevant thread or via private message.

Severe offenses, such as owning multiple accounts or repeated moderate offenses, such as repeated DOMA, will result in a ban of the individuals account. It may be temporary or permanent depending on the severity or frequency of bans. Repeated bans will result in longer bans regardless of the offense.

The gradation of offenses (warning → warning level reduction → ban) is not linear. The punishment is purely dependent on the severity of the offense. If a first time user commits a serious offense, the individual will be banned without a prior warning. All questions relating to punishments should be addressed to the staff via private message.


If you feel uncertain or unclear on any of these rules, please feel free to contact an administrator or moderator via the Private Messaging function for clarification. Confusion or ignorance of these rules does not constitute immunity from them or a defense in the case of infractions and punishment.

Last 2 lasted about 20 minutes combined.

This one seems genuine since the fighting at both ends has slowed down anyways.

I went to the demo on Saturday. Incredible turn out. About 150k people turned up.

People of all background. Saw many Jews too.

I even captured footage of Pedro Pascal (oberyn) from GoT. He was waving a Free Palestine flag from his hotel window in a show of support.

was a great feeling.

This threads a ghost town after it got locked.

Anyway;
http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/palestinians-say-israeli-strike-hit-home-of-top-hamas-commander-in-gaza/2014/08/20/435bfcda-285d-11e4-958c-268a320a60ce_story.html

Ceasefire broken, Hamas say it was Israel creating pretext for assignation attempt of Hamas leader, killing his infant child and wife instead. Israel say Hamas fired some rockets first.

So Israel respond to Rockets fired from position X, Y, Z by bombing what they believed to be the residence of the Hamas leader.. I know which sounds more likely.

Wonderful news.

R.I.P to all the innocent Palestinian kids, women and men who were murdered by the Zionist terrorist.

It may be over, for now, or how it's generally viewed as "paused", but one small glimmer of positive, if you can call it that, is that through social media, those who were oblivious to the Palestinian-Israel conflict now know who the real enemy is. Those who were fed propaganda by zionist run western media now know who the real evil is. Thanks to the internet, especially Twitter, Facebook, IG, Youtube and Whatsapp.

Farah Baker (check her out on Twitter) broke the news on my timeline. I'm so happy right now.

Glad to hear it is over. Wonder why this is being viewed by the Palestinians as a victory on their part. Anyone have any thoughts?

Because the Israeli tried to wipe them off completely. The victory is that they are still alive, and still in their land. Israel failed to accomplish what they intended.

It is a victory for Palestine because Israel, after all their indiscriminate murder of 2,139men, women and children, ultimately achieved nothing from their assaults.

All they did was tarnish their self-purported, contrived image as a victim cornered and surrounded by uncivilised barbarians.

Any Israeli citizen with any sense of decency left in them, should see this latest assault for what it was and denounce their illegitimate state and migrate back to where they came from.

OR push for reform (overhaul) of government policy.

I hope the military aid is reduced and whoever is left that clearly has no decency can rot for all I care.

Anyway I am quite sure neither will happen. Military Aid will continue and we will go full circle in a few years time. Israel's probably fairly useful to the US with the rise of the Islamic State.

Israel proposes nationality that would officially make non-Jewish people 2nd class citizens (although many argue that is already the case):

I remember I did this in grade 10 history, but I probably didn't pay enough attention.
What is the point of veto powers exactly. Why have a vote between multiple parties when there is one who has the power to overturn it all at the end? Basically, you just have to wait for the party who has the veto to make a decision and accept it and not bother yourself any further by voting.
Someone enlighten me.

Both sides need to be able to compromise and make hard choices if there's going to be a truly meaningful resolution here. There's going to have to be some give and take in these negotiations and I don't think that there was enough of that with this resolution. That much I agree with our envoy on.

As for your question, El G....the short answer? The UN system is a trainwreck of a system that is fixed in favor of the few most powerful countries to the detriment of the smaller ones. Simply put.
