People who live in the large collection of Nation States into which the African Continent is divided, almost never refer to themselves as "Africans." Only a small minority of Black Americans, (most of whom have never BEEN to the African Continent, anywhere,) refer to themselves as "Africans."

I know what you're trying to say.
Maybe you don't get what I'm saying
Mexico has it's own problem, but we refer to the citizens as Mexicans
United States of America has it's own problem, but we refer to them as Americans
Mexico is in North American
Egypt is Africa
Do we refer to Mexicans as Americans? No, we don't because we're selfish and ignorant

There is a continent and a country called America, so if we called them Americans, that could be confusing and misleading as people would believe they live in America. And if we called them North Americans, that'd sound stupid as **** . Hell, we don't even call ourselves North Americans.
User avatar #185 to #154 - gladiuss (11/25/2012) [-]
Once more for the slow ones. The people of the United States of America, are called AMERICANS because the word "america" is part of our country's NAME. Mexico is not called 'Mexican America.' Canada is not called 'The Canadian Provinces of America.' Therefore, neither country's nationals refer to themselves as Americans. No reference = no reason.

Being stupid is natural. Being intentionally and belligerently stupid is asinine and generally evocative of the "American" public Education System. BE proud, America

Ugh, nothing like a bunch of self-entitled teenagers with a **** ton of ignorance talking about politics/economics.

Lol, Europeans fighting the corrupt government? More like the governments that Europeans people wanted. Only problem is that they have begun to go broke and can't continue to keep up. So what do you people do? You decide to destroy everything in your sites and throw a noble label on it. Sounds a bunch like our little Occupy Wall Street (please don't get me started on those absolute idiots).

Hell, what am I even ranting on? I'm sure most of you probably need to get back to your 40' HD with your double latte at your side. Lol the worst part of everything is knowing what the future will be like and most of the jackasses who claim to be "educated" can't even comprehend it.
#177 to #116 - solinvictus (11/25/2012) [-]
Not to mention the asinine comment "Palestinians fighting for their homeland," as if they are noble freedom fighters. "Freedom fighters" who, because they are so morally superior to Israel, rejoice when Israeli children are killed by their rockets. And furthermore, Judea is not the palestinian's homeland, the Jews were there thousands of years before islam even existed.

But how can you really expect some stupid, ********* teenager to have any clue about the history or the conflict in the region with public schools and news media like ours?

When I look at the American government, both past and present, I am a little bit ashamed. But then I look at other countries and realize it's not any better anywhere else. Honestly, I'm a little bit ashamed to be a human being. Oh well, gotta play the cards you're dealt.

The whole thing started when the U.N. and the U.S. created Israel right on top of Arab land and forced millions of people out of their homes. They rolled over what people with tanks. That's what started all this.
#146 to #137 - mrcrowleysr (11/25/2012) [-]
>forced millions of people out of their homes

That actually made me giggle. Clearly you have no idea of what happened there. First open a book and at least read about the zionist movement, then come back to FJ to start an argument.
User avatar #147 to #146 - cullenatorguy (11/25/2012) [-]
And all those happy Arab people just stepped out of the way gladly to let the Jews take their homes? Makes sense.
#153 to #147 - mrcrowleysr (11/25/2012) [-]
the jews just started migrating there, no one forced them to leave
User avatar #158 to #153 - cullenatorguy (11/25/2012) [-]
And then U.N. created the state of Israel, jews got frisky and rolled over with tanks paid for by U.S., and forced plenty of Arabs out.
User avatar #164 to #158 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
No actually the arabs instigated almost every conflict with Israel. Every time they've tried to attack Israel, they've ended up worse than before.

And then when Israel tries to be decent and gives some land back (ie the Gaza Strip), they're repaid with rockets lobbed randomly into their country.

Yeah it's the damn Jews.

Israel was never supposed to have control of Gaza or the West Bank at all
User avatar #171 to #169 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
And they wouldn't have, had their neighbors decided to not attack.
User avatar #174 to #171 - cullenatorguy (11/25/2012) [-]
No, Israel went on a conquering spree on land they shouldn't have ever even thought about having. The U.N. was nice enough to give them land at all, then Israel decides they want more.
User avatar #175 to #174 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
Really? Come on.

"In 1967, as a result of the Six-Day War, Israel gained control of the West Bank (Judaea and Samaria), East Jerusalem, the Gaza strip and the Golan Heights. Israel also took control of the Sinai Peninsula, but returned it to Egypt as part of the 1979 Israel–Egypt Peace Treaty."


If you really didn't know this, I'd be questioning everything I knew about Israel.
User avatar #186 to #175 - cullenatorguy (11/25/2012) [-]
And who started the Six-Day War? Israel.
User avatar #207 to #186 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
The side that initiates a conflict isn't automatically at fault. The Israeli initiation was preemptive in response to the forces of various countries massing near their borders. Before conflict began Israel warned the closure of the Straits of Tiran would be considered an act of war. They considered the Strait an international waterway, a stance backed by the Western Powers. Also note that on May 27th 1967, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser stated "Our basic objective will be the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight."

The conflict was not some Israeli sneak attack on unsuspecting neighbors. It was a build-up of tensions and troops until the point of war.

This stuff is very easy to research by the way.

Israelis started migrating into Palestine illegally and many countries didn't care cause they felt sympathy for the Jews after the Holocaust. Eventually when the numbers of Israelis increased, they forced the Palestinians out of their country and slowly started become the Jewish state, Israel. U.S. started supporting Israel for intelligence on Arab targets, you can guess why. About 5-8 Million dollars a day, I believe, go into supporting the Israeli military, and those rockets being launched into Palestine, were probably made in the U.S. so technically we were majorly involved in the recent conflicts, but you don't hear about it because of the controlled media by the Zionists. It's all ****** up and it's all politics but it really sucks when Palestine is being portrayed as the bad guy when really it's the Israelis who forced out the Palestinians for selfish gains...
User avatar #176 to #115 - durkadurka ONLINE (11/25/2012) [-]
Israel was created by the UN from territory controlled by the British. The idea was to give the Jewish people their own land so they wouldn't be exterminated again.

When you're lobbing rockets into another country with no regard for what you're hitting (including your OWN people) you're the bad guy. Now obviously this doesn't apply to all arabs in the area, just the elements of Hamas.

Our tendency to send money to other countries is another discussion (but I think we and most of America would have similar opinions on the matter).

Well Israel and palestine have been fighting over israel for forever, palestine claims to have been their first while israel was placed their by the united states after ww2. that doesnt even count the biblical ramifications that israel claims to have on the land, because of the numerous exiles of the israelites, so in reality its all ****** .

Hamas shoots a rocket to Israel (who rolled over, what members of Hamas used to called their homes, in tanks and forcing thousands of people to relocate) which lands in the desert and hurts no one.

Israel responds by shooting back at Gaza city, killing hundreds of civilians in the process, and wounding hundreds and hundreds more.

Hamas is not Gaza or Palestine. Hamas is an organization, Palestine is a nation.

And Israel is fighting to destroy Palestine, and Muslim students in Europe learn while Europeans make more weird pop music.

Israel has killed hundreds of civilians for no reason in an extremely crowded city. Hamas (not Palestine) has killed about 5 Israelis. Fair trade off, don't you think?
