I guess when we see some evidence that centrist liberals are being captured by a malign influence the equivalent of Trumpism, a label can be applied.

Until then ......
Oh, when you specified centrist, I thought that you were talking about conservatives who didn't support Trump.

Why would Hamas need such a thing as an 'interrogation centre' inside their own country? Who exactly are they 'interrogating'?

And why?
Reread the AI reports/links. They're doing this to their own people, the Palestinians.

I would suggest that levels of intolerance are not much different at both extremes.
Good point, I totally agree.

Who is getting between the ears of your average "centrist liberal"?
Is the centrist liberal that different from the centrist conservative?

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

I would suggest that if the evidence were there, the IDF and Israeli government would have released it well before now, given that they have been in control of northern Gaza for some weeks.

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

It is now a month since claims were made by Israel - to justify its attacks - that a Hamas command centre existed below Al-Shifa, the largest hospital in Gaza. Has any credible evidence emerged in that time to support such claims? Amnesty International Report: Hamas forces used the abandoned areas ...

Re: Backlash over Congress Anti-Semitism Testimony

Yes, but the problem for the U.S. is that the left/Dems (take your pick) are unwilling to stand up to the woke people and tell them that their views are unacceptable. Instead, the Democratic party has been pandering to them. Bad enough in its own right, but pales into insignificance in its impact w...

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

Israel drove suitcases stuffed with cash into Gaza to keep Hamas in power: New York Times That's not what the NYTimes article says. You implied that Israel did this, and Israel alone. It wasn't Israel's cash, It was Qatar's. Israel only escorted a Qatari official to ensure his safety, it didn't sup...

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

There are nutters on both sides of the argument. This guy, whoever he is, could be matched up on the Israeli side, and at the end of the day is irrelevant to a 2 state solution. i agree with you, except that the views espoused by this nut are the official position of Hamas, the governing body in Ga...

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons that a two state solution is unlikely to work. There are Jews everywhere. We must attack every Jew on the face of the planet. We must slaughter and kill them. ... We want to see knives. ... How much is a Jew's throat worth? ... [A]ll our sisters are ready to carry ...

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

So Israel should be condemned for inadvertently killing civilians, but Hamas shouldn't be condemned for intentionally targeting civilians? The U.N. (both the Security Council and the General Assembly) has repeatedly rejected resolutions condemning Hamas, its attack on Israeli civilians, and its taki...

Re: WORDS

Devil's Advocate Likely we’ve all heard the expression “to play the devil’s advocate.” It has an interesting origin.

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

A reasonable approach, but two problems: 1) The Arabs have been offered a two state solution repeatedly and always refused, 2) How does one deal with Hamas, or get it under control? The problem isn't the moderate Palestinian and Arab states, it's the extremists, as always. The previous offers faile...

Re: Israel under attack from hamas, war declared.

Far easier to say, rather than this conflict has gone on for long enough - it's time to sit down with the moderate Palestinians and Arab states, with the aim of achieving a mutually acceptable and recognised solution, based on 2 states. A reasonable approach, but two problems: 1) The Arabs have bee...
