    Not everyone. Let's not slide into absolutism.

    I don't even know that it's true, I'm just sick of the reflexive defense of Israel. If they nuked New York, it wouldn't even phase these guys.
    What I find interesting is the silly evidence that some will qualify as honest work and perhaps uncovers genocide while claiming that Powell was dishonest. I'm also interested to see if we can get a China OCP apologist in here to offer apology given (absurdly enough, granted) that the grand accusations are true.

    Personally, I find it more likely that the TV show intentionally created hype, was sensationalist, rating oriented, and the couple quotes and stats from no one knows where are not really any kind of reliable indication of State (or group) genocide. We can call that an educated hunch.

    They very nearly already did on 9/11, according to some. I do admit that I do reflexively defend Israel against those claims.

    What or who specifically were you reacting to, in this thread, that prompted that post if it was not the people who didn't immediately accept the story as true?
    It was the "It's not even sterilization." crowd and digsbe's post that was in response to Spanky saying that the official report will be "white washed".

    People with a bias against Israel or a desire to believe that they are an evil nation will accept anything from any source that is critical of the nation without digging any deeper and trying to find facts without the spin associated with it.

    I didn't pay attention to the sterilization side debate. Did we decide that women on birth control are sterilized?

    It would depend on the birth control method I believe.

    I must be tired. I don't recall asking what's Digs' post was in response to. Given that he quoted who he was responding to, there wasn't really much mystery to it.

    I was giving his response proper context so people wouldn't think he brought that up out of nowhere. I was being fair.

    Pretty scandalous, huh?

    Temporary stuff, like the pill, a shot every three months or the thing in the arm that lasts for 6 months or a year.

    You need to be educated on birth control. Depo provera is the last contraceptive a doctor will suggest because if its side effects.

    Why would one wait for the sensationalism and undetailed accounts of foreign news orgs when I could read respected local papers like Times of Israel and Hareetz?
