As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."

  • Obama helped bury report on the murder of 318 Children

    10 years ago following the Cast Lead assault a UN report on the matter was issued. It was a direct condemnation of the actions taken during that attack which killed
    1400 people, 22% of those were children.

    Leaked cables show Obama sent Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy Michael Posner to help the Israelis change the narrative and tell their "story"

    "A/S Posner said responding to the specific allegations contained in the Goldstone Report would be important, but that the GOI could also usefully make clearer the steps it is already taking to examine its operational decisions and rules of engagement. Announcement of a review process that would examine the accountability processes undertaken in Israel for allegations of IHL violations, as well as addressing broader doctrinal issues and compilation of lessons learned could help change the debate internationally."[1]

    Obama is often portrayed as anti-Israel but as we see from his actions he was willing to work with Israel to bury this damning report.

    After Gaza slaughter, Obama officials met with Israeli generals to counter ‘poisonous’ Goldstone Report and get ‘Israeli story out’

    This is the tenth anniversary of “Cast Lead,” Israel’s three-week-long onslaught on Gaza that took nearly 1,400 lives, 318 of them children, and that as much as anything helped shift the American view of the conflict and caused progressives to side with Palestinians.

    During those three weeks of horrifying images, President-elect Obama had nothing critical to say and Israel did him a favor in return: it ended the bombing/invasion two days before he was inaugurated.

    Then in September 2009 the UN Human Rights Council issued a bombshell of its own, the Goldstone Report, which documented war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during the campaign, chiefly the Israeli pattern of deliberately striking civilian targets, including schools, mosques, homes, and a flour mill and a chicken farm.

    The Obama administration worked to stymie the report at international bodies, and in the end the report went nowhere (defused by its author, Judge Richard Goldstone, who under huge pressure from his own community retracted the allegation that civilians were intentionally targeted).

    The greatest impact the Goldstone report had was its first impression, on international opinion. Now a State Department cable has been leaked in which US diplomatic officials are shown to have met with seven Israeli generals over two days in January 2010 to discuss ways to counter the “poisonous” Goldstone Report.

    Ug.

    Certainly is an interesting story, though. When forced to weigh their hatred of Obama against their love for Israel, how is a reasonable fundagelical supposed to choose?

    Yes, the US has a well-established track-record of defending Israel no matter the cost, and we really need to reconsider it.

        The RWinger hate Obama so everything he does is wrong. But they also love Israel so burying a report on IDF brutality is good. I sense a Mudd-like conflict developing in their little brains

          Your OP source "MondoWeiss.com is biased fake news, from leftist liberals.


          Wikipedia: Mondoweiss is a news website co-edited by journalists Philip Weiss and Adam Horowitz. It is a part of the Center for Economic Research and Social Change.[6] According to the editors, Mondoweiss is "a news website devoted to covering American foreign policy in the Middle East, chiefly from a progressive Jewish perspective". Its founder describes himself as progressive and anti-Zionist.

              Sigh. If this is an accurate report (and I have no reason to think it isn't), not a big surprise.

                Hamas' strategy is to assure civilians get killed when Hamas is engaged over their hostilities. Hamas fighters also disguise themselves as civilians so when they *sacrifice* themselves for the cause they can be counted as civilian.

                And many times sources on casualties is Hamas itself.

                    I'm blaming Hamas. The people it rules over are very disposable to them.

                          Is this a race to see how many anti-Jew threads can be posted on Carm in 2019?
