EtcetEraThread emigrate to israel
Reason User warned: Don't bring up politics and then try to dismiss the subject when confronted. Argue in good faith.
If there's another thread to discuss Israel's policies, I will elaborate on political issues there. I have not seen anyone being anti-semetic in this thread, nor was I calling anyone out for being one. it is something that you deal with in other countries though, and I doubt you deal with it in Israel. To bring this back on topic: I honestly found praise for life in Israel from my acquaintances, friends and family to be almost cult like. These are people who had great lives in Australia, and the US, but would not STFU about how great Israel is. I love beaches, and warm weather, and Israeli food, but I never wanted to visit, even for free. As I age, the level of hype has left me curious, and I might just visit one day to see what all the hubbub is about. Edit: not sure how to respond to a warning, or if we're even able to: I did not bring politics into this thread, I responded to everyone else who did, and then I realized I was fallibg into their trap of derailing a positive thread about Israel.

EtcetEraThread BBC: Jewish nation state: Israel approves controversial bill
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Downplaying atrocities, history of severe infractions, account still in junior phase.
Here's the way I suppose that the administration and supporters of the measure look at things: If Jews ever lose the majority or power in Israel, the 'atrocities' that the Jews commit to protect the Jewish state would pale in comparison to what would be done to the Jews. If that is the concern (and it's hard to argue against it being a legitimate concern), what would you suggest as a better solution that would be considered by those currently in power?

EtcetEraThread Rose McGowan gets into argument with Trans Woman at Book Signing
Reason User Banned (2 weeks): Insulting, antagonizing, sexism. Ban extended after review.
No. You can't build the roof before you have a base. You are just a small part of a larger fight. There is just no possibilty that trans rights can come before woman's rights. You have to fight with the larger group to reach a position where they can fight for the smaller demographics within. It's the art of war. I wouldn't expect it to come naturally to a woman. ;)
