Objectivity

Pro

This round will be used exclusively for acceptance and definitions, which are open to negotiation.

On balance: with all things considered.
Palestine: Gaza Strip http://en.wikipedia.org...
Just: To give each his due (Aristotle)
Government: the governing body of a nation, state, or community.
Israel: The State of Israel http://en.wikipedia.org...

Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to accept the debate. I hope that whichever proponent sways the audience, we both provoke a bit more thought on what would constitute justice in this region.

Although I said I'm happy with the definitions as they stand, could I suggest one amendment? Instead of the Gaza strip definition for Palestine, we go with "http://en.wikipedia.org...; ? It seems more in line with international opinion and a good place to start.

Your call.

Gaza Strip is NOT Palestine. Gaza Strip is a small portion of Palestine not subject to the Fatah-controlled federal government, but rather subject to a separate government under Hamas.

Hello,

This is my first post for debate.org, or any debating website. I'm neither Israeli, nor Palestinian, but have strong views on the topic and the injustices wrought by both sides.

I'm happy with the definitions as they stand.

Or maybe liberals like being opposite, there are a lot of things they support that are by all standards the opposite of them.

If the issue interests you I have a good op-ed that I would gladly PM you that I found amusing that explains why liberals support a state that would otherwise run antithetical to their ideology in every way imaginable. And yes one of the reasons is antisemitism, lol

Believe it or not, but I've met really liberal people dumb enough to defend launching rockets at schools, so long as the schools are Israeli (you know, full of Jews)...
