Incidentally, I just started a new game of Crusader Kings II. This time around, I am playing as a Jewish banking family from Venice. It is still early yet, but my long-term goal is to recapture the Holy Land and form the Kingdom of Israel; when I do so, do you think I should put all the Levantine Arab to deaths, or let them stay if they promise to convert to Judaism?

It's a serious dilemma, because in my last game, a Norse Viking world-conquest, I wound up having to publicly execute something like sixty Arabs after conquering Andalusia, due to the sheer size of Muslim families and the limit on the number of prisoners you can hold before your own family's birthrates start to plummet.

Also, Batman doesn't fucking defend Robin from the Joker!!! That analogy doesn't work on any level, whether as an honest description of Israeli policy, a sarcastic inversion meant to be interpreted satirically, or as just some kind of warped wishing-game.

No, I get your point, and it's one that plenty of other people here - myself, DQL, baleen, etc - make as well. "It's all bullshit" - only it's not really ALL bullshit, and technically speaking even those parts which are bullshit are not entirely bullshit, as the best bullshit has elements of the truth mixed in (e.g. this "murder" is largely bullshit, but it is still a murder and it is still a terrible thing for the IDF soldiers to have done)

BUT

Your central thesis, if indeed you intended it to be this way or if instead your thesis was just a happy coincidence arising by random chance - i.e. that we are all of us guilty of some form of disingenuity - is a good one. What I object to, and what triggered the Rainbow Dashening, was not the *message*, but the *rhetoric* surrounding the message; specifically, the blatant bullshittery. You know full well that there is no such person as Kim Jong Netenputin. No one can "eat" warcrimes; that is a strictly meaningless phrase. Republicans have nothing to do with this. And *obviously*, and I am not joking about this by the way, the best way for us (meaning Americans) to "make the most money" is to keep doing exactly what we're doing - that is to say, giving massive amounts of foreign aid to hostile Middle Eastern regimes, which in turn creates a greater demand for weapons systems in Israel, weapons systems which we can then turn around and sell to the IDF.

People like George HW Bush and Hillary Clinton aren't stupid. We do what we do, not because we're insane, but because what we do works - at least, from the perspective, and according to the interests, of those who are in power.

No, that is only the case from a limited perspective and within a narrow definition of the word "power".

Israel has a higher capacity for coercive force. They are able to leverage violence far more efficiently, and far more effectively, than their Palestinian counterparts. However, this is the only true advantage the Israelis have.

The Israelis do NOT "get to dictate the rhythms of the conflict and many of its overarching themes"! As Binro so astutely points out, this clip is a perfect example of how, in this sense of the word, "power" is actually held by the Palestinians. It is not the IDF who choose the time, place, and nature of the engagement; it is the Palestinians. The IDF (like the Americans in Vietnam) is locked into a constant cycle of observe and react, their responses feeding into a war for hearts-and-minds that is none too kind for Jews. The Palestinians, realizing their own limitations, have developed a kind of insurgent aikido; using the strength of the IDF against them. Turning the Israelis' "power" - that is, their capacity to inflict violence - into a liability... all at the cost of seemingly senseless and poorly-understood deaths, like the one in this clip.

This is one of the essential factors governing asymmetric warfare, and a big part of the genius of Yasser Arafat.

My rhetoric buffer is calibrated to respond differently to a variety of distinct rhetorical styles. The bullshit buffer is set for a very low tolerance threshold - but it's OK! You got Rainbow Dash'd, which is considered an honor in some societies.

I think it's meant to be a feminine aspect of Cernunnos, representing the eventual triumph of a resurgent paganism over monotheism.

>> Who really has the power in that sort of situation?

ell, contrary to the narratives which we are sometimes encouraged to believe, situations like this rarely have clearly-demarcated power relationships. After all, how does one define "power"? Depending on what criteria is used to measure power, the answer to your original question may change.

In this particular instance, I'd argue that we could say both the Israeli state and the Palestinian leadership have "power", each in their own respective ways. The people who do not have power, are the young victim and the Colonel provoked into killing him.

There's one thing wrong with his theory, however: no-one can beat The Taker. If he were part of the WTC complex, he would have chokeslammed those airplanes right out of the sky.

Also, I'm pretty sure this poor kid had nothing to do with the Nazis, at least not directly. At worst, he's a youth conscript being forced to fight for the streets of Berlin.

They're not really "new" Nazis. The Palestinian movement was founded by old-school Nazi-sympathizers, such as Haj Amin al-Husseini, Hassan al-Banna, and Nasser. "New" isn't really an accurate descriptor; they're more like OG Nazis.

It's not so much a crime as it is bad policy in general to throw things at heavily-armed soldiers while they are touring an area known for insurgency and violence. And of course, the Palestinians *know* this - provoking violent reactions by the IDF is the whole point! The Palestinian leadership has been relying on this kind of tactic for years: they take young, impressionable, stupid people, get them to do something dangerous, then film them getting killed. Make a press release, cry for the cameras, move on to the next martyr; it's the way the war in Israel has been waged for decades now.

As DQL points out below, the situation is terrible on each side. The IDF should not be murdering unarmed civilians - and, in fact, legally speaking it CANNOT do this, which is why the IDF spokesmen have been so keen to argue that the Colonel acted in self-defense. If he did not act in self-defense, and it can be shown that he did not, then he will be arrested and court-martialed, joining the nearly 2,000 soldiers incarcerated (by the Israeli government itself) for committing serious criminal offenses. As well he should!

At the same time, we - the passive, non-Israeli, non-Palestinian observers - have to maintain our objectivity and keep in mind what we are really seeing here. This is an angry young person committing suicide-by-cop, in order to fuel a highly-sophisticated, highly-cynical propaganda machine.
