for what it's worth
@Dvir I don’t know if I’d necessarily trust the Coptic bishop
I trust him more than the government
I wouldn't either
I wouldn't trust any new church built in Egypt to stand up for long either
Egypt’s better than most middle eastern countries TBF
They even kicked out their own President when he was of the Muslim brotherhood
Israel still the safest country in the Middle East for Christians
Christians are joining the IDF in rapidly increasing numbers
Same with other reasonable religious denominations like the Druze
It’s funny; there were these guys who were “totally not anti-Semites” who said Isreal would fall in the next coming decades
Which I find unlikely, as; Egypt is an Isreali ally, as is Jordan, and Syria won’t be in shape to contest the Golan heights for decades
Israel was able to stomp all rivaling countries in six days, and if needed can mobilize a large chunk of its population.
What do you think about all the stuff over Isreal and Palestine; I have a isreali friend so I think I might be biased towards the Israelites but I’ve heard from other sources that there have been egregious crimes against the Palestinian population from Isreal
And I don’t want to discount the accounts of Palestinian people
Nihilism is cancer.
Honestly it ultimately isn't a pretty situation either way you look.
I've never seen someone 100% anything on any of these tests
I got turbo middle ground on that one though, iirc
Israel is a shit show.
and it is partly our fault
I believe Israeli occupation is a result of Palestinian aggression, and that is true. The argument there though is that ultimately the Israelis never had a right to be a state in the first place
No they really didn't
I hope the muslims overrun isreal and destroy every last man woman and child there
Although the Israeli people were there originally it has been largely palestinian muslim territory since its conquest shortly after the death of Muhammad
but well, that goose is already cooked.
what are we going to do?
Move the entire country to Utah?
I mean, we can.
You're not going to unmake the state, and it isn't going to fall to foreign invasion anytime soon
So the argument comes down to who do you believe has a more legitimate claim to the land? To me I look at the situation practically and see that Islam is a religion antithetical to western values and those who support Palestine often do so more for a hate out of jews rather than a support for palestinian muslims.
Well Dvir, it isn't even that.
Look, we can remove Jewish rule and authority in the Middle East, or we can remove Muslims from the Middle East.
That argument ended the moment the UN stuck their dick in it
Or we can just let there be war and conflict.
