Gaza Conflict: Delegation Of Tory, Liberal MPs Headed To Israel

“That's right, I asked to be educated. So don't try to bs around the obvious fact that is is about religion...what I need to understand, is why everyone seems to overwhelmingly "side" with Israel when it seems like Gaza has more casualties during every conflict.”

“okay...so I'm naïve, ignorant, or whatever. So educate me.
Because to me, both sides seem to be equally violent and hateful towards the other. But the death toll in Gaza is always so much higher. So why is it so many people seem to "side" with Israel? I don't understand...
On another note...this is yet another example of why religion is stupid and it's time we, as a race, rise above it and turn to science. Just sayin...”

“It is not about religion. It is political. Israel uses religion as a moral shield.
Zionism is not Judaism.”

“At this point Doug Ford calling someone a liar just proves to me that person was actually telling the truth.”

“Plus, he 'reported' on his own rehab afterwards too. Should we only hear his version of events?”

“There's a fantastic monologue by Leo DiCaprio in The Basketball Diaries where he talks about how much street junkies hate these rich, privileged junkies because when their addiction gets out of control they just slip off to the Four Season or some fancy expensive rehab or whatever to dry out. But that the street junkies have to go back and actually deal with the consequences of their addictions. Like jail or losing loved ones due to betrayals etc...
Every time I hear Ford talk about his addiction I can't help but think of this monologue...”

“Did you ever watch The Corner? One of the best lines was a recovering addict who said that the corner owns the addict. It's worth buying on DVD. It was the predecessor to The Wire and it's quite an eye-opener.”

“Whether it's condoned or not is irrelevant.
These people interpreted their faith to believe it's "dishonourable" to disobey the all-ruling patriarch and in her case, not marry the cousin she was ordered to marry.
Their religion is their moral compass, Peter.
So my agreement with Andy that religion is at the heart of the issue here, stands.”

“And that's the problem. These religious novels are open to interpretation. But in these countries their legal system is based on their religious beliefs.

But...to illustrate Andy's point:

The Quran in Sura 4:34 says:

Men are managers of the affairs of women because Allah has made the one superior to the other. (Maududi, vol. 1, p. 329)

[R]esponsible for the right conduct, safeguard and maintenance of the affairs of an individual, an institution, or an organization. Thus, man is governor, director, protector, and manager of the affairs of women (p. 333, note 56).

Thus, a man’s control over a woman ranges far and wide. So, to kill a women for "dishounering" the family is by default, acceptable.”
