  • Quite right Hitchens. As always he came to that subject better informed than anyone else in the discussion.

    • @ElegantDecline Hitchens would have rejected such a gong, I saw a petition to grant him a KBE phostumously, what a farce pursued by a moron whe knows nothing of Hitchens or the gong in question. Hitchens famously called Prince Charles a "slobbering Dauphin" and said "this what you get when found a political system on the family values of Henry VIII". Brilliant stuff!

    • @dorbie Yep, he was no monarchist...in fact he was part of a small number of people who advocated a written Constitution in the UK

      Doubt Charles would have cared, he adores Spike milligan, even after he called him a 'grovelling little bastard' at an award show

    • @nation_of_zion Disgraceful, are you a troll or just a moron? You're no better than the most radical Hamas moron bent on Israel's eradication.

    • @nation_of_zion They were on the land. When did Israel come into existence? Both groups have historically been in the region dating beck 1000s of years and before World War 1 the population of Jews in Palestine was less than 3%.

      There has been a historic State of Israel. There is a State of Israel now on the same land. There are historic Jewish kings, language and currency. There has never been a pali state. There are arabs states but palis are actually disenfranchised egyptians, syrians and jordainians. all into sharing but they don’t wanna, so fcuk em.

  • You know there are other important things now except of the settlments, such as raging Muslims in Arab captitals over a stupid film, and the killing of an American ambassador.

    You are a typical hard left, which always brings the same old agenda, no matter what is going on around him. lol

    • @aydeo Don't be a fucking idiot, Theft of land and property is not justified by pointing to violent muslim protests elsewhere. Did you even watch the video to the end. Based on your dumb comments you clearly did not and utterly missed the point.

      Don't shift the focus from the settlement to whatever is happening in the world. Just a typically Israeli method you use. When you can't confront something you simply shift to another topic and hope the viewers won't notice or won't care.

      Believe me I'm well known with the problematic aspects of the WB settlments.

      Read my comment once more and find where did I justified the settlments.

      I just can't not to notice that ED,and several others here are always stuck with the same topics and issues (usually regarding Israel), doesn't matter what is going on around them.

      All your volgar language here is pointless.

    • @MrG

      Lol- You meant to say that this is a typical Muslim/anti-Israel method.

      Usually the spins I notice here are regarding Israel.
      To bring now a 2.5 years old discussion about the settlments in such a day is a spin, and the fact you show up only here, and not in the items about what took place in Cairo and Benghazi shows you are part of this spin.

      I cant confront...?? Almost half of my items in recent weeks deal with Settlers extremism and price tag attacks.

      Try another lame trick pls

    • @aydeo You ignored the issue and pointed to a distraction. However well versed you think you are you are unable to stay on topic and make a cogent argument, instead pointing to unrelated irrelevant issues.

      If you've now watched the whole video it should be clear just how far off base you were.
