you are throwing very .. very old stuff on to the board
I will get back and address your points later. My internet is playing up also, i'm short on time but with regards to the expression 'MOWING THE LAWN' It appears to be a common term they use.
Here is a an ex Israeli Soldier talking about Mowing the Lawnhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpAA8ZlDvgY
Here's Norman Finkelstein - apart from his parents both sides of his family were killed in the Holocaust. He is an American Political Scientist specializing in the Israeli / Palestine conflict and the Holocaust.
Here he talks about Israel Mowing the Lawn in Gaza and Lebanon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cZSS8eP3l4
He tells how the Israelis soldiers describe the killings of Palestinians as a 'Child with a magnifying glass burning up ants'
And another Israeli described mowing the lawn as a play station computer game'
dear babooshka ., Sitting in AMRIKA Norman Finkelstein who could NOT get tenured position in US of A because of his support to Palestine ( SO HE HATES ISREALS ) nor that that ex-soldier and present executive detector of Breaking the Silence, Avner Gvaryahu,
can solve the present Israel - Palestine problem .
but at least let us put link of recent Norman Finkelstein writings and sayings ... here ...https://twitter.com/normfinkelstein?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthorhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FWUR-U2550
1st question to answer is .. what problem do we have now and what problem we had before since the ages starting from 6th century to colonial times to the birth of Israel that was founded in May 14, 1948? that is the question..
Is it problem with people and dividing the land?? is it a religious problem? is it an economic problem? is it a political problem?
and those are some questions we need address
