Not to mention the fact that they killed members of an endangered species for no good reason.

Axel I think you are missing the point here. It wasn't that they killed zoo animals for no apparent reason it's that they systematically destroyed a mean's for gazans to cope with the war and make some money. This to me looks like economic genocide.

No, I think the point is pretty much that bastard soldiers killed a bunch of animals for kicks.

Ok, the Lions are understandable if they were running loose, but the rest are inexcusable.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Question: Do we have proof that Israeli soldiers did this?

Couldn't they just use forensics to see if the bullet fragments in the animals match the caliber of the gun that fired them?

This isn't CSI:New York, Andrew.  This is Palestine.

1.  Assuming they could do a check like you suggested, evidence would likely have been lost by now.
2.  Someone other than an Israeli soldier could always have gotten their hands on an Israeli gun.
3.  There may be, hopefully will be, an investigation, but I doubt this is a top priority, and there are limited resources.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Yeah, that's probably the last thing on their list of things to investigate.

Question about Black History Month:
How many people do you think would be in line to lynch the guy who proposed making March "White History Month"?

Oh my f***ing god!

You're taking the Israeli's side in this?

What the hell is wrong with you?

They killed defenceless zoo animals!

Sorry Axel but thats just beyond the pale. Take a step back and examine exactly what you just said there.

I dunno if I'd blame Israel. It was a few ******* soldiers, yeah, but somehow I'm doubting the entirety of Israel would kill zoo animals simply because the zoo is in Gaza. Same goes for Palestinian militants. Not all Palestinians want to fight a war...probably many of them don't. Of course, these aren't the ones you're going to be hearing about...


That said, why the hell would you shoot up a zoo? Seriously. I guess war brings out the worst in people? Maybe they just thought no one would give a damn about the animals...


Meh. It's all pretty disturbing, and I don't think i said a single thing there that made any sense.

Oh, I'm not blaming Israel. I'm just a bit pissed off that Axel's automatic reaction is to justify it as acceptable acts in Israel's retaliation against Palestine.

(Sorry if I'm jumping the gun on a new news story or something, but here goes.)



So up here in Canada there's a woman who has gotten herself artificially impregnated and birthed 14 kids so far. Shes unemployed and living on welfare... She claims shes doing this because shes always wanted a big family. Also shes a single mother... And recently shes been offered a deal for a million dollars to make a Porno.

Yeah, it's a crazy story.  But for the record, she lives in California, not Canada.  And she turned down the porn deal.

I see.

It's big news up here so I just assumed it was a Canadian story.

Yeah, they have that story all over the morning news shows and current affairs shows here in Australia.

Shows like that just take a story and strangle it to death for a few weeks.

Wow, I thought Australians and Canadians were more sensible than us. I was wrong, I suppose.
