This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

The alternative is that perhaps your (and the Irish) rhetoric and attitudes on Israel are so off-base that you're verging into antisemitism.
Being full of hot air doesn't detract from my point.  Especially since I didn't call you an antisemite. Interesting how the moment you read that word, you turn the accusation into a badge of honour.  Seek professional help.

(emphasis mine)

I don't get it. It certainly seems to me that you're implying antisemitism on Rob Necronomicon's part, and the implication of the "interesting" is clause seems to also suggest that.

Are you saying that phrasing it as "verging into" means that you didn't call him that? In my experience, most people react equally poorly to being called racist and being called "verging into racist".

I think there's a fair difference between rhetoric and discourse that is antisemitic and calling someone an antisemite. The former is much easier to identify, and is a problem endemic to both the left and the right. The latter, well, I don't know Rob or anyone else on this forum personally, so why would I make that claim?

I am certainly implying antisemitic rhetoric and discourse, yes.

So if leftists support Hamas against Israel, how do they feel about the other 16 groups involved?

https://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2021/06/analysis-17-palestinian-militant-factions-identified-in-recent-gaza-conflict.php

Now think of ultra-orthodox Jews throwing stones at others.

And think again of the monks having a fistfight over moving a chair 20cm at a church.

We could remove all the Jews from Israel/PA/Gaza and the Moslems would fight murderously among themselves. We could remove all the Moslems, and the Jews would fight murderously among themselves. And we could remove both, and the Christians would fight murderously among themselves.

When my older relatives went on one of their trips to Israel, I think this one was after the Yom Kippur War, my grandmother told me that some of the Orthodox (kids, I believe) threw rocks at my great aunt. Apparently her skirt was a bit on the short side :D

I don't really blame them, she always was a bit of a brazen strumpet, even in her 70s.

I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the Palestinians marching this month for Pride month - in solidarity of course and out of respect for all the LGBTIQ support that they were given recently.

This is one of the reasons I say Islam is a load of pigswill. That said, the people are brainwashed into believing that shit.

Oh, and I hear being an apostate isn't too good for one's health either.

   Given how some of those marches go, if I am being honest, not marching is a bigger plus IMO than marching.  Tolerating something is not the same as accepting.   Though I dont think they are tolerating either.   But I have no interest whatsoever in marching, or attending one live.  Does that put me in the same category as a palistinian?   There purity tests out there I dont know about?
