In contrast :
I had posted an article on how a Jewish person had been savagely assaulted (15 days in hospital, near death) and their neighbours had said it was justified because they weren't wanted as a people. It has since emerged that the issue might have been homophobic, but that matters little to me. The bigotry is appalling but the law breaking is unacceptable. Chris posted that there was provocation. Another friend, N said she hoped Chris wasn't saying that Jewish people deserve such treatment or that Chris was saying Jews were terrorists. Chris said he had written a book proving as much. I asked N not to respond and affirmed that no one deserved to be subject to terror.
I have a stance on issues I am willing to debate:
Israel is a modern democratic state and deserves to prosper
Terrorism is unacceptable and should never be rewarded.
It is apparent the UN accepts terror as policy among some member states
In Australia, the Pacific Solution was the best, most fair policy of dealing with boat people immigration. It allows for refugees to be placed and discourages the dangerous journey. It allows for more refugee intake from refugee camps. Those who claimed there were alternatives are seen to be liars.
I'm willing to debate, unwilling to accept abuse. I'm not Jewish, except the Nazis would have said I was to be exterminated and they killed many in my family. I am proudly Christian. In stating a basis for my belief I address physical realities that are superfluous to faith but intrinsic to Atheism .. which may be labelled gobbledegook.
