OP hates arabs in general, and refuses to even call them Palestinians, even though they might have been born and lived in Palestine, along with their parents and grandparents and their grandparents' grandparents.
There are more meaningful things to discuss in politics than your displeasure with people naming their kids after things. Yes, we get it, you're scared of the nasty terrorists and it sucks, but this thread is pointless and sounds like it came out of complaints rather than starting a rich discussion.
It's not child abuse. I was named after a saint and I'm not Christian. My name has not affected my decision to join or leave a religion. What will define the kid's outcome is his environment and HIS decision, not a name they may or may not relate to.
Just because it's against your opinion doesn't mean it's abuse. It's not any different than naming your kid after a football player or a saint - things you are passionate about.
I don't really find one case of a baby-naming incident to be terribly reflective of world politics, cultural ideas, or mythologies. Frankly, trying to extrapolate it into a discussion makes you sound petty, but perhaps this isn't anything new to you .
I really love that you used the word 'extrapolate' because it means you take your information seriously. Sadly, I've done some serious research into the Arab-Israeli conflict and this 'incident' where a bunch of people in Gaza name their children in such manner and perpetuate their myth for conflict enhancement is nothing short of a longstanding culture. Examples of this can be seen in a multitude of documentaries, regardless if the maker is making a generic documentary on their society or one that tries to make a statement against or in favor of their "struggle" with Israel['s existence].
A reasonable documentary that does not make Israel look good, but does shed light on the phenomenon is called 'Death in Gaza'. You can give it a look for some further insight. There are a few other important video links on my journal that give better insight on some important aspects.
Is that the shark that was biting people's asses and hands off?
Because that shark was 'trained' by a diver to come to humans for tourists. It then associated people with free food and that's why it bit off hands (because hands were feeding it) and people's asses (because that's where the feed bag was).
I wish we could somehow cut out that region of the middle east and just stick it in the middle of the ocean somewhere. Both sides do things they know will provoke the other. Israel will always come off best and ultimately calls the shots though.
The Syria issue is just a case of mis-direction. "look how bad the situation is in Syria, why does everybody focus on Israel". You will find it being used by Israel's supporters all over the internet where any discussion or criticism of Israel occurs.
I think they got a memo about how to mis-direct forum conversations away from Israel actions.
Doesn't matter. Was merely pointing out the two situations are different.
Is your government even giving them enough time to police their citizens? Your rocket shield is over 90% effective isn't it? Giving them time to find those responsible for the attacks to be prosecuted before moving in with the big guns would probably be effective.
When they want to police their militant factions, they are more than capable. As you can see in recent days, no rockets were fired into Israel... after Hamas started to worry about what would happen next if they don't declare a "victory" and order everyone to stop firing at Israel.
