    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 6 points ago in worldnews

    Aye they should have taken the smart route like Egypt did with Sinai. There's plenty we can say about stupidity of Syrian leadership....wouldn't make Golan Israeli though even then.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled -3 points ago in worldnews

    Years don't count, the age does. We live in the age of the UN where we all promise to respect each other's regional integrity and sovereignty. Well at least we pretend to. Annexation, Conquest, Reconquest don't have any place in the post WW2 era.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 6 points ago in worldnews

    Not with the String attached. It's a right of every sovereign nation to reject the deals they see as counter-productive to their views. Just as Israel would be well-within its right if let's say Malta occupied Haifa and offered to return it only on the condition that Israelis start hailing them with "My Lord Knight Hospitaller of Malta, you look ravishing today" while bowing wherever they met.

    Digging up more examples from WW2 era? Shouldn't be surprised, because that's precisely the world you want us to return to. Where anyone could "Conquer" any land. Let's say Country X invades Israel and "Conquers" it. Would you have us all reject their claims of annexation and maintain that De Jure Israeli land belongs to Israel? Or would you like us to shrug and say "Who gives a shit? They conquered it fair and square".

    That's a lie and you know it.

    Lmfao. Go and talk to Azad Kashmiris. Or heck even Kashmiris in IoK. Ask them how many of them have their brothers, sisters, uncles, extended families living in AJK.

    When you lie you actually create problems for real victims like Rohingya Muslims being genocided by Burma.

    There's no lie here. Indian brutality is well documented by UN, Amnesty and HRW. And Burma's genocide isn't a lie either.

    What the fuck you mean by Kashmiris hate you? Mind your fucking business asshole.

    Smooth. Precisely that. They hate you all. You know it. Shrugs

    You're free to delude yourself my friend. In practice it won't be any different than Trump recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 8 points ago in worldnews

    You keep going back and back into the dark days when might was right. It still is in practice but at least now we pretend it isn't so. You'd have us give up the pretense away too ;) What you're basically saying is, let's say if some Arab country invades Israel and somehow actually manages to win, wouldn't you want us all to reject their claims of annexation? I mean that's the principle. Just because they captured de-jure Israeli land, it doesn't make it theirs. It shall remain Israeli. Just as Golan shall remain Syrian. If we act otherwise, the world will go back to pre WW-1, pre WW-2 era where the mighty could wrest away any piece of land they wanted and the whole world simply acknowledged it.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 6 points ago in worldnews

    shrugs, Makes no difference at all what Syrians wish for or what Israelis wish for or what you wish for. The fact remains, Golan is Syrian. Nobody gives a fuck how many years has Israel occupied it, how she occupied it, how many illegal settlers live there, how the Syrians utilised its strategic location when it was under their control. Israel may retain de-facto control over it, none of us really care about, but you wishing really really hard won't make any of us recognise the de-jure control. Because it's about principle. If we open the door, we are setting a very very dangerous precedent here which will encourage more countries to go to war and wrest away land as they see fit.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 7 points ago in worldnews

    In the olden days? Sure. In our modern civilised world, there's no place for "annexation by right of conquest". And that is why the World won't follow the US in recognising Golan as Israeli territory. It's super easy, recall the Jerusalem vote.

    How many Kashmiri Muslims refugees are there in Pakistan?

    There are Uyghur refugees in Pakistan too, who are now naturalised citizens. And of course millions of Afghans. How many Kashmiri refugees? Dude, every 2nd family in AJK escaped from IoK. Quit your bullshit. Whole world knows Kashmiris hate you lot, lying on reddit won't make it go away.

    [–] Utrecht shooting: Turkish man admits killing three aegon-the-befuddled 9 points ago in worldnews

    Turkish? Looks white to me.

    Turks are a hodge-podge of Oghuz Turk, Greek, Anatolian, Armenian, Georgian and to some extent, South-slavic genes. Many of them, chiefly those who live on the Anatolian western shores have higher European ancestry and can look European. OTOH, Turks on the Eastern side look Middle Eastern.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 11 points ago in worldnews

    Aye, Turkish first invasion was justified as there was a genocide underway and they were one of the three guarantors of the Treaty of Guarantee and they had even invited Britain to join them in the intervention and perform their duty as a guarantor. Britain declined. The second invasion was absolute aggression and the following declaration of TNCR was also illegal (And isn't recognised by anyone). That's where Turkey fucked everything up.

    [–] EU says doesn't recognize Israel's sovereignty over Golan Heights aegon-the-befuddled 41 points ago in worldnews

    Same's true for Israel. Golan isn't Israeli. Golan is Syrian. Nobody gives a crap how long has it been under occupation and how many illegal settlers have begun calling it their homes or how Syria used its strategic position against Israel when they held it.

    But people are conditioned not to eat dogs cause they're pets and we grew up with them.

    Not all people. A lot of Eastern cultures view dogs as unclean and pretty much the same as pigs. Do you see the difference? The "truth" varies from person to person, depending on their background. You're conditioned to not to eat dogs because they're pets. Others are conditioned not to eat pigs. What makes your conditioning more "superior"? Just because you think "Oh it's written in that queer fairytale book".

    I guess someone should tell Russia.

    So when's Trump gonna recognise Crimean annexation? Or the world? Never? Yeah I guessed so. It's Jerusalem all over again, US stands alone. Even the closest allies like UK and EU won't back such a reckless move.

    Lol ISI operative now? I'll take that as a compliment. You're unfortunately too thick to be a RAW operative so you'll understand if I do not return the favour.

    How many Hindus/Sikhs are fleeing from Kashmir valley? All

    Really who are all those Hindus in Jammu then? The pundits did flee in the 80s when after 40 years of Indian persecution of Kashmiris, Kashmiris started unfortunately to target Indian civilians. We consider them Kashmiris still, whenever there's a plebiscite on Kashmir, they should vote to determine the state's future.

    Noice. Not that guy though, he was released after Kazakh government put pressure on China, if last reports were correct. He now lives in Turkey apparently.

    You wanna go back to the 8th century? Pretty sure a lot of current Nation states weren't native to their lands or had just recently invaded those lands back then. Uyghurs practiced Tengirism, Nestorian Christianity, even Buddhism back then themselves. Tocharians intermarried and assimilated into Uyghurs, there's Tocharian blood in every Uyghur today. As for Saka, They are an Iranian folk. Obviously, like all of us Indo-Iranian people, they were not native to the Tarim basin either but had conquered it themselves. Those Saka who weren't pushed out to South Asia by the Yuezhi were conquered and absorbed by the Uyghur. You want 21st century to be like 8th century?

    [–] Eat pork, speak Chinese, no beards: Muslim former detainee tells of China camp trauma aegon-the-befuddled 2 points ago in worldnews

    Go and read all my comments on this thread. In every single one, I condemn the Chinese. And correction, the only Pakistanis in the camps are dual national Chinese Uyghur.

    Oh I get the feeling you know which one I'm gonna cite

    Ohhhhh I do because you all cite the same one without ever actually looking it up themselves and reading all six verses to get any meaning out of them

    the prophet ordered that to all his soldiers

    Ordered to do what? This? These are the only 8 commandments to Islamic armies left by the Prophet.

    The prophet commands them to cut heads without mercy and ISIS obeys.

    More BS. Go on already. Cite your "Source".

    Smh......What kind of drugs do they give you lot there?

    Almost no Muslims were killed in India

    u/Bheegaboot you wanna take this one?

    They were all mudered.

    Bollocks. I am sorry, the statement is so ridiculous I have no other response for it.

    Pakistan’s non Muslim population is tiny now.

    Oh dear, the repeated BJP myth about how Pakistani Hindu population differs in 1947 to 2019? Yet all these folks can't mention one pogrom in Pakistan against Hindus on scale of Gujarat massacre etc in India against Hindu. Let me tell you how it happened. 1971. Majority of Pakistani Hindus lived in Bangladesh. And there they live even today, some 17 million Bangladeshi hindus now. Hence the decline in "Pakistani" Hindus since East-Pakistani Hindus became Bangladeshi.

    their holy book compels them to behead infidels.

    Where? Can you cite the source please? inb4 he posts the most popular among Islamophobes first half of the cherry-picked 2:193 and gets smashed with the full context

    Bosnia was the last one I believe. And European reaction (Particularly German, French and Dutch) was indeed shameful until US intervened.
