Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

    You should have been born Palestinian, you'd be singing a different tune. Israel is a racist genocidal state that is holding people hostage on their own land. I know some people believe that land, water and air doesn't belong to people and should be governed by J3ws but others like to have the ability piss freely on their own land.

        Egypt permanently opens Gaza border crossing

        RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) — After four years, Egypt has permanently opened the Gaza Strip's main gateway to the outside world.

        The move to lift most travel restrictions on Gaza residents brings long-awaited relief to the territory's Palestinian population and a significant achievement for its Hamas rulers. But it raises Israeli fears it will be easier for militants to go in and out of Gaza.

        The first busload of passengers crossed into Egypt on Saturday morning at the Rafah terminal, where about 400 Gazans awaited.

        Egypt and Israel have maintained a blockade over Gaza since 2007 to weaken Hamas following its violent seizure of the area. But after the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in February, Egypt's new military rulers decided to ease the blockade.

          Well I assume that's what both sides want (Israel to blast all Palestinians as terrorists, and Palestinians to blast all xxxs as racist), Fatah and Hamas use their people as publicity stunts and western media fake footage on occasion also; with every protest you must ask yourself is this spontaneous or organized by the government? Protests against the xxxish state are regularly ignored by western media, there are plenty of Israelis that want the xxxish parties out of power and for the secular xxxish and Muslim parties to take their place. When attacking Israel as a state virtually everyone totally ignores the plight of secular xxxs, who are forced by law to pay for the war and fight it while the Orthodox xxxs pay no tax, force women to be segregated (to an extent which much be compared with segregation of blacks in America)*, bomb crematoriums (or rather set them on fire)* as they claim they are against Judaism, and that is just a small part of the persecution non Orthodox xxxs face in Israel (especially in Jerusalem).

            Palestinian chief negotiator may visit Armenia?

            May 31, 2011 | 12:51

            Palestinian chief negotiator Nabil Shaath said he is planning to visit Armenia.

            Shaath announced on Monday that Spain was planning to recognize the Palestinian state before September after his meeting with Spanish Consul-General Alfonso Portable, TheJerusalem Post reports.

            Chief negotiator of Palestinian Authority said the country was sparing no effort to secure international recognition for the statehood bid.

            He also added that intends to visit Armenia, Moldavia, the Philippines, Mexico and Columbia to persuade these governments to support the statehood bid, the newspaper writes.

              I highly doubt Armenia would recognise Palestine, given we haven't even recognised Karabakh. (same argument for not recognising Kosovo)

                Well this is good for us, as Israel/Turkish relations will be strained even more. I wonder what Armenia will vote when the resolution of Palestine's independence comes up. I'm guessing we will vote 'no' because of the Karabakh issue and the fact that we remain one of the few countries that has absolutely no political relations with Palestine (even Israel has some political relations with Palestine).

                Turkey ready to recognize Palestine as sovereign state

                June 16, 2011 - 21:20 AMT
                PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey will vote for a UN resolution to recognize Palestine as a sovereign state, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said in remarks published on Thursday, June 16. “We hope that an independent Palestine [is] established based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as the capital,” Gul was quoted as saying by Japanese newspaper Nikkei. “We are among the strongest supporters of Palestine,” he also said.
                Palestinian leaders have been campaigning to win UN recognition of a state that spans the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, territories Israel captured in 1967. “We call on all friendly, peace-loving nations to join us in realizing our national aspirations by recognizing the State of Palestine on the 1967 border and by supporting its admission to the United Nations,” Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in an opinion published in May in The New York Times, referring to boundaries that embrace the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
                Israel and the United States have objected to the idea of UN recognition. The US has urged the Palestinians and Israel not to take unilateral steps that could jeopardize a final peace settlement. Gul said there is “no doubt” that Turkey would vote for the resolution.
                In a speech at the UN Security Council in April, Turkey's ambassador to the UN declared Turkish support for the Palestinian quest for UN recognition as an independent state, saying it is time for the international community to be in solidarity with Palestinians to help them “live in peace and with dignity.”
                “Through their state building efforts, the Palestinian Authority has proven to all the sceptics that they deserve to attain their decades-long target of internationally recognized statehood, even though they continue to suffer under occupation,” Ambassador Ertugrul Apakan, said at a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East.
                If Palestinians prove objectively ready to move from their current observer status at the UN into full statehood, the international community “must not turn a blind eye to their just and legitimate appeal,” he said, and added, “The time has come to show solidarity with the Palestinians and help them to live in peace and dignity,” Today's Zaman quoted him as saying.

                  ?????

                  What are you calling Palestine? Palestine is the state occupied by Israel. Gaza isn't Palestine and neither is the land governed by the "Palestinian Authority".

                    Well I'm obviously referring to the territories currently under control of Palestinian Authority and which will be included in a Palestinian state (given Israel is right next to it).

                    Though, what's more interesting for me is whether Azerbaijan will recognise PA. I bet they will be under heavy pressure by Turkey.
