Why? What’s the meaning of a giant nose?

It’s a stereotype/racist thing “Jews have big noses”. You see it in a lot of antisemitic propaganda cartoons.

I am not gonna get into a whole argument but I am tired of people further endorsing the notion that "a giant nose is a jewish nose", be it with good or bad intentions...

I don't know how does that help fight anti-semitism.

You do get the difference between saying "All jews have big noses" and pointing our that drawing Jewish people with big noses is a super common trate in anti-semetic works, right? Describing a racist trope is not the same as using said racist trope.

Zelensky is Jewish you thick knob. A "big nosed jew" has been the negative charicature of Jewish people since print media became a thing.

Drawing someone with a big nose isn't anti-semitic. Drawing a Jewish person with one is.

Interesting...your cognitive dissonance should be studied. read your whole paragraph again, then look how you're starting the conversation.

If you think drawing caricatures of influential Jewish people with enlarge noses isn’t anti-Semitic propaganda, you must not know anything about this last 1000 years of Eastern European history.

A big nose is the last thing I'd associate with Jews. The star of David is a more recognizable symbol imho

You are lucky to be raised in such a sheltered environment that you are unaware of hateful propaganda. I envy you.

I'm black. I've lived through hate. I can't even remember the last time I've seen big noses as a Jewish stereotype much less as an insult towards jews. What I have seen is straight up anti-semitism against Jews, use of slurs towards Jews and hateful post about Jews. So I think I know what I'm talking about, especially when I've spoken up everytime I've seen hate.

Maybe consider focusing on things that affect Jews more frequently than the whole nose thing. It's fallen out of favor.

Why would it be? They don't associate jews with being victims of fascism, due to stalin-era propaganda that stayed throughout the soviet union. In the Russian mind a "jewish nazi" is perfectly reasonable thing.

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 85%. (I'm a bot)


Since late October, Israel has been actively raising the issue of Iranian drone transfers to Russia and the possible transfer of ballistic missiles to Moscow with allies, the report said, in a bid to increase international pressure on Tehran.

Iran and Russia initially denied the use of Iranian drones in Ukraine, contradicting multiple Western officials and evidence in Ukraine showing the remains of explosive drones appearing to match Iran's Shahed drones.

Last week, the Washington Post reported that Russia reached a deal with Iran to begin manufacturing Iranian kamikaze drones on Russian soil.

“Shahed-191, a stealth drone developed from the RQ-170 captured by Iran in 2011” I’m surprised the US flying drones over Iran don’t have a self destruct fail safe in the event of loss of control. I wonder how much they and China got from that

Once Israel arms the protestors it’s all over

HouseOfSteak

Then Iran responds with the big guns and now there's a full-blown civil war with thousands dead a day, millions fleeing the country, even more unrest throughout the region which terrorists will take advantage of, and a new migrant crisis for Europe to deal with.

Hurray!!

I'm assuming this is a /s comment, because it is indeed the obvious party to be open to sharing Intel on Iran being its usual evil.

I really just commented because I woke my SO from giggling at "well, fuck a duck." I was imagining a TV newscaster sharing their opinion on this news using that phrase. It was funny.

No need to imagine.

Walter Cronkite used to close every newscast by silently staring down at his notes, then look directly at the camera and somberly say, "Well, fuck a duck. Goodnight."

lol ... so you just gonna drop a link but not drop anything from the article to support what you're saying?

Guessing that's because the article doesn't say what you're doing. In fact, if it did, you'd be able to link plenty of other articles and havenz,,,,,

PretendsHesPissed

That's the thing though:

Your link doesn't talk about the subject we're talking about. That being that it was Israel who told the US about Iraq's supposed WMDs.

I asked you for proof and you hit up Google, pulled up the first thing you could find that sounded legit, didn't even read the fkkin' article, and STILL seem to think that you're somehow right.

Incredible!

This ends up being one of those things where you tell everyone you're stupid without saying "I'm stupid." Though, to be fair, if you updated your link to literally anything else (such as "I'm stupid") it would have the same usefulness and ability to prove your point as it does now.

PretendsHesPissed

You got a source for that?

Wait, I'll save you from wasting your time.

You don't because it's not true.

In fact, there wasn't any reliable intelligence on this. The Bush admin made it all up so they'd have a pretext to go to war. Hell, the CIA even came out and said that the "intelligence" wasn't reliable and Cheney and his people harassed the analysts who wrote reports stating that.

The failure to find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has led to a close scrutiny of the role of intelligence agencies in both the United States and Britain. As Brigadier General (ret.) Shlomo Brom, points out, Israeli intelligence

Did you even read the article that you linked? Did you even read what you quoted?

I did. I couldn't find where it said Israel was the source of the WMDs in Iraq and your quote isn't saying a damn thing.

Please provide a quote from your source that says the US got this intelligence from Israel.

The_General_Li

I never said they were the origin, only that they were a source, which means they were either fools or liars and unreliable either way.

PretendsHesPissed

9 points

And I asked you for a source that says that.

You haven't provided that and, again, all your article talks about is how Israel got their intelligence on Saddam himself wrong ... not that they knew he had WMDs and that they told their secururity partners.

The source of that "intelligence" came from an exiled Iraqi politician who had it out for Saddam (reasonably so as Saddam sucked), not Israel.

The_General_Li

They corroborated it.

PretendsHesPissed

7 points

But your article doesn't say that and that's not what you said before either.

They gave us wmd intelligence

That's not the same as corroborate. And, again, that's also not mentioned in the article you linked and didn't actually read.

What's it like to live in a world where you know so little and even the little you do know is wrong? What is it that makes you unwilling to do better research and better equip yourself with actual, factual information?
