Israel - last boring thread on subject? Dream on!! :)

Discussion in 'Politics' started by deadbroke, Jun 30, 2010.

  1. Like the antediluvian conflict, the threads will also be "perennial" - but Ben Franklin can end the boring subject.

    For Barack, if he's got the balls to pull it off, apply the BEN FRANKLIN CLOSE, a close that always works when the closer is stymied by OBJECTION (in the singular because there is only ONE ROOT) - the closer ignores the "locks" of the root and goes straight for the root, grabs it and pulls it out. Voila! Problem gone, poof, as-ised, vanished!

    The only one instance where the mighty Ben. F close fails is in the face of a CIRCUMSTANCE. Dropping down many layers to just the individual level, an example of a circumstance in the face of a potential sale is DIVORCE. Benny will not work here.

    But Benny works everywhere else and on an individual level allowed me to retire at age 39 (note: by no means am I a rich man, not even close - just a simple, satified man who can easily accommodate his meagre needs). So it works beautifully on the 1st dynamic (self-determinism), works magnificently well on the 2nd dynamic aka women/marriage/kids, works great on the 3rd dynamic (group) - so why shouldn't it work just as well on the 4th dynamic (mankind)?
  2. Application of Benny to the "Israel" subject:

    In the left column list ALL the reasons why Israel is disliked/strong disliked/hated/despised etc.,

    (Personally I could write about 30-50 items here)

    Then hand the pen over to the convince-ee and have him/her write down ALL the things/reasons why Israel is liked/loved/etc.

    (Personally for me the right hand column comes up blank.)

    The CLOSING question for the american people in a national televised program by Barack is therefore,

    Which way would you go?


    Note: In the application of Benny, right after the CLOSING QUESTION has been delivered, there will generally be a "moment of silence" aka PRESSURE (but the good kind, not the type that hammers and forces the potential client). The closer maintains radio silence during this SILENCE. The law that the closer must never break is, "he who speaks first right after a closing question has been delivered, LOSES!"

    During the slience the closer just simply gently but firmly holds the gaze of the client, and if the client throws a curve ball, the closer acknowledges, then redirects to the closing question ....

    just a movie, but the emotions are very real in real life ....

    See the prev. concentration camped Jewish woman and man who get killed by Szell (der weisse Engel = The white Angel)? (from 6:52 onward) These are decent people who got shafted by the Nazis. International goodwill for them was a huge.

    This is now not only totally squandered, rather it has swung so deeply into the negative column, that they have become "Szell" - their former oppressor.

    That really is the crux of it. They have become the Nazis.

    And the Law of Mania suggests they will exceed the +6 million kills by at least 38.2%, a fibonacci number that seems to work well for ALL MANIAS IN HISTORY.

    There is a list over over 120 Jewish people that contributed something to society. It also shows all the muslim contributions (all 7 of them).

    If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.

  5. Nice link, thanks traveler. :)

  6. Bollox!
  7. Fact.

  8. There are three primary categories of people who hate Israel - Muslims/Arabs, anti-semites and ultra-leftists. Which group do you belong?

    That's because you're ignorant, intellectually lazy and dishonest. Here is the [incomplete] list of Israel's accomplishments in the short 62 years of it's existence:

    Israel, the 100th smallest country, with less than 1/1000th of the world's population, can lay claim to the following:

    Israel has the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the world.

    Israel produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation by a large margin - 109 per 10,000 people - as well as one of the highest per capita rates of patents filed.

    In proportion to its population, Israel has the largest number of startup companies in the world. In absolute terms, Israel has the largest number of startup companies than any other country in the world,
    except the US (3,500 companies mostly in hi-tech).

    Israel is ranked #2 in the world for venture capital funds right behind the US.

    Outside the United States and Canada, Israel has the largest number of NASDAQ listed companies.

    Israel has the highest average living standards in the Middle East. The per capita income in 2000 was over $17,500, exceeding that of the UK.

    With an aerial arsenal of over 250 F-16s, Israel has the largest fleet of the aircraft outside of the US.

    Israel's $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined.

    On a per capita basis, Israel has the largest number of biotech start-ups.

    Twenty-four percent of Israel's workforce holds university degrees - ranking third in the industrialized world, after the United States and
    Holland - and 12 percent hold advanced degrees.

    Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

    In 1984 and 1991, Israel airlifted a total of 22,000 Ethiopian Jews at risk in Ethiopia to safety in Israel.

    When Golda Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel in 1969, she became the world's second elected female leader in modern times.

    When the U. S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya was bombed in 1998, Israeli rescue teams were on the scene within a day - and saved three victims from the rubble.

    Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship - and the highest rate among women and among people over 55 - in the world.

    Relative to its population, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing nation on earth. Immigrants come in search of democracy, religious freedom, and economic opportunity.

    Israel was the first nation in the world to adopt the Kimberly process, an international standard that certifies diamonds as "conflict free."

    According to industry officials, Israel designed the airline industry's most impenetrable flight security. U. S. officials now look to Israel for advice on how to handle airborne security threats.

    In 1991, during the Gulf War, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra played a concert wearing gas masks as scud missiles fired by Saddam Hussein fell on Tel Aviv.

    Israel has the world's second highest per capita of new books.

    Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees, made more remarkable because this was achieved in an area considered mainly desert.

    Israel has more museums per capita than any other country.

    Medicine... Israeli scientists developed the first fully
    computerized,no-radiation, diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer.

    An Israeli company developed a computerized system for ensuring proper

    administration of medications, thus removing human error from medical treatment. Every year in U. S. hospitals 7,000 patients die from treatment mistakes.

    Israel's Givun imaging developed the first ingestible video camera, so small it fits inside a pill. Used to view the small intestine from the inside, the camera helps doctors diagnose cancer and digestive disorders.

    Researchers in Israel developed a new device that directly helps the heart pump blood, an innovation with the potential to save lives among those with heart failure. The new device is synchronized with the
    heart's mechanical operations through a sophisticated system of sensors.

    Technology... With more than 3,000 high-tech companies and start-ups, Israel has the highest concentration of hi-tech companies in the world
    (apart from the Silicon Valley).

    In response to serious water shortages, Israeli engineers and agriculturalists developed a revolutionary drip irrigation system to minimize the amount of water used to grow crops.

    Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita.

    Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, with 145 per 10,000, as opposed to 85 in the U. S., over 70 in Japan, and less than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work
    force employed in technical professions. Israel places first in this category as well.

    The cell phone was developed in Israel by Motorola, which has its largest development center in Israel.

    Most of the Windows NT operating system was developed by Microsoft-Israel.

    The Pentium MMX Chip technology was designed in Israel at Intel.

    Voice mail technology was developed in Israel.

    Both Microsoft and Cisco built their only R&D facilities outside the US in Israel.

    The AOL Instant Messenger was developed in 1996 by four young Israelis.

    A new acne treatment developed in Israel, the ClearLight
    device,produces a high-intensity, ultraviolet-light-free, narrow-band
    blue light that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct - all without
    damaging surroundings skin or tissue.

    An Israeli company was the first to develop and install a large-scale
    solar-powered and fully functional electricity generating plant, in
    southern California's Mojave desert."

    All the above while engaged in regular wars with an implacable enemy that seeks its destruction, and an economy continuously under strain by having to spend more per capita on its own protection than any other country on earth. This from a country just 55 years young having started off life on a very frontiers-like basis, whose population had mostly just emerged from the devastating World War II years.
  9. And now perhaps you can enlighten us and let us know what you put in the left (positive) column for the Muslim/Arab world which I suppose you believe are the good guys in the Arab/Israeli conflict. I am all ears.
