Hamas offers Israel 10 conditions for a 10 year truce

poorpoorpitifulme:

transhumanisticpanspermia:

standwithpalestine:

• Withdrawal of Israeli tanks from the Gaza border.

• Freeing all the prisoners that were arrested after the killing of the three youths.

• Lifting the siege and opening the border crossings to commerce and people.

• Establishing an international seaport and airport which would be under U.N. supervision.

• Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers.

• Internationalizing the Rafah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations.

• International forces on the borders.

• Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

• Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement.

• Re-establishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.

It’s funny how truces put forward by Hamas are declined and largely ignored by MSM but the moment Hamas reject any farcical truces agreed to by Israel (which keep the inhumane blockade on Gaza intact, for example) it’s front page news and you’ll never hear the end of it. ‘HAMAS REJECTED THE TRUCE HAMAS DOESN’T WANT PEACE’. 

And even then, Hamas’s truce demands aren’t even that major. Like, there’s not even a demand for a return to a respectable border. Where’s the “Hamas willing to put aside border dispute for the sake of peace” headline?

Those are incredibly reasonable terms (more than reasonable, I’d say, they’re well within their rights to ask for so much more). Israel claims that everything it does is to protect its civilians but the fact that they’re not willing to guarantee those civilians’ safety by agreeing to things like relaxing prayer restrictions and allowing increased fishing says a lot about what its actual priorities are.

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Beyonce Shuts Down Women Against Feminism With A Single Snap

poorpoorpitifulme:

listener-blue:

“Women Against Feminism” has become a thing and we can pretty much hear the hoofbeats of the Four Horsemen, signaling End Times.

Lucky for us, Beyoncé has stepped in to save the day with a single photo — as she’s been known to do.

Tuesday (July 22), Bey posted a photo to Instagram in which she’s all kitted out like Rosie The Riveter, flexing under the words “We Can Do It.” She didn’t provide any context for the snap, but we’re pretty much assuming that she posted it to basically save the world from itself. Also because she looks damn good in loose denim.

Queen Bey isn’t new to feminism — she’s basically been dubbed an honorary Riot Grrrl by Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna and she contributed an essay to Maria Shriver’s “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink.” Oh, and she’s been repping the “f” word on tour with Jay Z, too, incorporating the term into her stage show in massive black and white letters.

Now tell us again why you don’t need feminism, ladies. The Beygency is listening…

Well shit - Beyonce got her photo taken?

Great rebuttal Beyonce!

There go all my well thought through reasons for being anti-feminist.

Dang. 

I love how this article just seems to assume that because Beyonce did something all the anti-feminist women and girls in the world who have dedicated time and energy to researching and understanding feminism and formulating their own ideas as to why they are against it are just going to crumble into tears at the sight of Beyonce posing as an overused war propaganda poster model and come running back into the arms of Mother Feminism and Godmother Bey.

The thing I take from this massively obnoxious article is that the author assumes that women are basically: 1) a hive mind who all apparently love the same (overrated) American pop singer and 2) weak-minded beings who will crumble into submission and conformity at even the slightest suggestion of disapproval from an authority figure. Like, are feminist writers trying to sabotage themselves at this point?

THIS. 100 times, this.

Yes please

Dude, this is so well said.

A perfect description.

So, you want to sexualize and degrade men? What would that accomplish?

-The Trans One

I just can’t get enough of this post of some woman being so bitter and hurt that Hooters exists that she dreams up this fantasy of revenge that like 99% of men would honestly not give a fuck about if it were a reality.

Male followers, would you give a fuck if a Cahones existed?

Not in the least, I just think its hilarious that these cunts are so fucking bitter and conceited that they believe everyone is as outraged as them.

Yo Hooters is the shit, their food is good as hell. I wanted to work there and I might after I move out. How the hell do they get mad about people covering up to breastfeed and not sexualizing breast, but WHOOA OAOAH take your kids to Hooters and its a nightmare. 

No one is fucking forced to work at Hooters. They know what they’re getting into…

Also, waitresses at Hooters tend to make more in tips than waitresses almost anywhere else. They make fucking bank. I wish the Hooters near me was hiring. I would work there in a second.

What people say: “An offensive character in a work does not mean the creator actually endorses said views.”
What folks like Lin-lin apparently hear: “You have literally no right to be offended, because the character is fictional.

I also like Petey’s post, which looks vaguely sensible at first blush, until you realize he’s implying that characters are necessarily a reflection of their creator, therefore any offensive things characters say are likely to be the creator’s view too. I’m sure George R.R. Martin would be quite surprised to learn he’s a eunuch, little person, and Khaleesi.

I never did like Nostalgia Chick.

I didn’t know she’d fucking turned on Doug, though. Like, for real? He’s the one who fucking hired her, and she turns around and spews this bullshit?

The Nostalgia Critic is not meant to be a loveable character. He’s kind of a raging asshole. Yes, you’re supposed to find some of the things he says offensive. That’s the character. It is the character who has offensive views and says hurtful things, not Doug.

In fact, isn’t Doug a feminist, himself?

What the fuck is Lindsey on?

She is attacking someone who is the fucking reason she’s even known by people. First she stans for Sarkeesian, now this.

oooh my god she supported Sarkeesian?

that’s terrible

Yo, I just read her interview on themarysue and she talks about how free speech shouldn’t exist and how she will delete any comments she deems “stupid” meaning any discussion and critique will be non existent. No wonder her and Sarkeesian are friends.

Fun fact, after watching her videos, I went from being mildly ok with feminism to hating it. 

Who is Lindsay ellis?

Nostalgia Chick: The “female” version of Nostalgia Critic. 

What a stab in the back. Doug helped her be famous, now she talks crap about him. No wonder she’s not in any of his new reviews anymore. This is what arrogance gets you….

I know someone who isn’t getting invited to the next TGWTG anniversary video…

"Doug a feminist"
Fuckin…..no….please…..someone tell me it’s not as bad as I think

There are lots of feminists who aren’t SJWs, like Lauren Faust. Ironically, Anita Sarkeesian likes MLP, but hates the episode of PPG Lauren wrote to criticize people who are feminists out of misandry.

Could someone send me a link or something to what’s going on? I keep hearing about it, but other than that one tweet in the picture, I can’t find anything about it.

Can I vent for a moment? I really liked the idea of a female Thor and I was super excited to see where Marvel would go with that, but the anti-Tumblr SJ blogs I follow have all acted like it's pandering and the work of those darn Tumblr feminists and now I feel like shit for liking a thing I like and it pisses me off bc I don't even know why I follow these blogs if they're going to treat any change to the status quo as if it's baseless pandering and not just telling a different story

I think that it’s rad that thor is going to be female and I agree with you

though I do think that it’s a little weird to call her thor instead of making a new character, as far as I know thor is a character on his own not a switching title but correct me if I’m wrong

(other than that I’m not too involved with comics so I couldn’t really say what is or isn’t correct)

In the comics, the power of Thor is passed to the worthy through Mjolnir. It ends up being kind of a mix between Thor being an actual person and a title.

My only concern with the gender switch is that comics tend to do this as a gimmick to draw in a new audience. So it often isn’t well done and doesn’t tend to last. I hope that Marvel averts this though and does a good job.

Also, one of the continuities already has a female Thor in the form of Thor’s daughter, and she was a really well-done character.

If you’re getting mad at someone for adopting a parentless child and bringing that child into a loving home because their skin color doesn’t match then you need to take a good hard look at your prioritys, evaluate your life, and ask yourself how you sunk this fucking low.

You really haven't stopped pretending you're latino, have you? Well, I have good news. Two weeks ago, after some time I tried to persuade you to do it in a nice way and all you did was mock latino countries and people, I went to the local police to make a report on you. I live in the US so it's more efficient than when I lived in Mexico. I telephoned them today and they said they're processing it. I said you commited a race crime. I hope you have a good time in jail, disgusting woman.

Few hours before his execution, Ted Bundy talked about the murders and the power of the addiction to pornography. He took responsibility for his actions but he blamed the pornography as a key factor in the killings.

"I’m no social scientist, and I don’t pretend to believe what John Q. Citizen thinks about this, but I’ve lived in prison for a long time now, and I’ve met a lot of men who were motivated to commit violence just like me, and without exception, every one of them was deeply involved in pornography."

no no no no no, excuse me but a serbian film is incomparably better than a human centipede and whoever suggests otherwise doesn't know much about film.

Or they simply have a different opinion than you.

I’m sorry, but this shit drives me nuts. Someone having different tastes than you doesn’t make them wrong or uninformed. For example: I think Insidious and The Conjuring are two of the worst movies I have ever seen, but it doesn’t bother me that other people like them, and I’m not going to insult them over it. That would just make me an asshole.

When you join the army you know you’re joining an organisation where a primary job requirement is “kill people”

as ignorant as you might be about imperialism and racism and the military industrial complex, that’s a thing that you know

really, really, really, fuck soldiers.

Soldiers are the reason you get to say stupid shit like this.

I highlight doubt you’d ever say this to ones face.

primary job requirement is not to kill people you fucking moron. despite what hrrible rumors you might hear, the amount of soldiers who actually see combat or even fire their weapon in a combat situation is actually small in comparison. there are combat units but most soldiers are people like mechanics, analysts, engineers, and other mundane shit. 

dont talk about the military unless you know a goddamn thing about the military

Engineering units.

Medical units.

Signals & Intelligence units.

Logistical & transport units.

Most militaries have a pretty high tooth to tail ratio.

This is what happens when peoples only knowledge of something comes from fucking Call of Duty.

I was gonna say video games but even the most basic RTS or tactical squad game would still hammer into the amount of non-combat roles needed for an army to work.

Even within combat units, their primary duty is rarely to kill people. Usually, their primary duty is protect certain areas from incursion. A friend of mine was a Marine in a combat unit…his usual duty was handing out supplies such as pre-made meals to the civilian population. If you’re going to criticize the military, please at least have some idea what you’re talking about first.
