  • Stop Saying 'If X fired Rockets at U.S.': It's Racist, & assumes we're Colonial
    • "The fact is that the Israelis could have peace if they’d stop being expansionists and accept 1967 borders."

      Not really. Many in Israel, at least in the ruling parties, define their nation as a democratic theocracy - Israel is a Jewish state. Population pressure will force them to either change or continue to deal with the internal Palestinian population in a less than democratic way. That will inevitably create dissension and result in continued violence. This would, perhaps, be somewhat similar to Jim Crow in the US though with a strong external component.

      It would be interesting to apply the ideas from Dan Kahan's climate communications study to this problem as it seems, in the US, to be more about self-identified tribal affiliation than logic or fact.
