New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

    If I picked some of your things up, such as "90 of the lands in Israel being leased" then that is simply and awfully wrong.


    As far as British documentation that is neither correct or relevant.
    I answered your bolded point.

    The second point is extremely relevant. Israel is the 'Mandate holder' from the UN, which acquired the league of Nations mandates.

      That's absurd. This *might* be true regarding public land, but not all lands.

      As for your 2nd point, Israel is not "the mandate" holder, it's a sovereign state.

        I don't know Israel but I know something of this from Singapore and Hong Kong. In Singapore the government owns virtually all the land and it is put to private use by means of very long term leases (e.g. 100 years). So a firm would lease the land from the government, build an appartment building or office tower, and operate it. Periodically the lease comes up for renewal and there is a tendency not to invest in maintenance toward the end of the lease but otherwise there is not much difference with private ownership.

        The other similar example is US federal lands. If you look at America in terms of percentage of land owned by the federal government it's extremely high, especially in wester states, but this is very misleading because most of that land is desolate or, at best, useful for ranching or mining only. Few people are directly affected by this.

        In both cases, ownership and use rights are very clearly defined.

        The botom line: this is a red herring.

          then I would suggest you produce an alturnative source.

          I sat on a board when I was a civil servant , Briefly, & heard reufgee claims fform Palestinians & Syrians. There 'Version' is an eerie mirror image of a lot of right wing Israeli positions.

          You really are 'one separated but close enough people'. Israelis & Palestinians are so eerily similar in outlooks.

          The Times recently carried this unusual report on an Israeli Jew (Tsvi Misinai, a retired computer expert) who's hoping to prove that Palestinians are descended from Jews. Apparently, he thinks that proving this will help to stop the bloodshed. His idea is that modern Jews are descended from emigration in the first few centuries of the Christian era. The Jews who stayed put in Palestine converted to Islam, and became Palestinian Arabs. There's hope that genetic tests might be able to prove this.



          http://epiphenom.fieldofscience.com/...-jews-and.html

          There is no connection what so ever, in any way shape or form between today's Palestinians- which are overwhelmingly descendants of North Africans, Syrians, Iraqi and Bedouins from the Arabian desert and the Philistines which are descendants of people from the Mediterranean islands and have vanished from history around the 5-6 centuries.
          __________________

          Has, been,I regret to say, disproved by any reputable DNA study. There has been some Arab input ( no surprise), but the Palestinian stock is basically- converted from Judaicism.

          In fact , Israelis are very similar to the 'Plantation Scots'.
          Who now realise that they can Share the Island of Ireland.
          Genetically, Palestinians sit right between the Shepardi & the Askenazi
          Read the data.

          Just a little farther behind on the curve..

              Firstly, even if our DNA closely resembles, that has nothing to do with the Canaanites now does it?
              Secondly, I'd assume we resemble each other, Judaism originated from Mesopotamia.

              Lastly, it has nothing to do with the discussion at hand.
              I guess you don't like some historians in Israel.

              Also you maybe could go in Greece, they still don't have any plan and land registry.

                Israel is expected to take up the burden of the Mandates, for the same reason that the British were required to provide the Jewish Homeland in the Balfour declarations.

                Peel pointed this out as far back as 1937. His untimely death removed a very farsighted statesman from the 'Palestine Mandate'.

                You notice that ,IMHO,Isreal has a right to retain the Watershed of the Golan Heights. Its the price Syria pays for the expulsion of the Jews from both Syria- and Lebanon - which they triggered.

                If it helps any,I got kicked off a 'left leaning ' discussion site for advocating this..

                  I think you are overlooking the intervening wars which change the "burden" of the mandate entirely. The British did not hand the West Bank to the Palestinians but to the Jordanians who used it to launch wars against Israel with the enthusiastic support of the Palestinians. Because the Arabs lost and Israel won, and because Israel has no reason to expect peace, and because control of this land is vital to it's security, and because the Palestinians continue to seek the destruction of Israel, there is absolutely no reason why Israel should feel bound by the original mandate.

                    The articles plan ,IMHO, makes as much, or as LITTLE, sense as the 'All Jews back to Europe' Hezbollah/ Hamas plan.

                        See:

                        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordani...East_Jerusalem

                        In March 1948, the British Cabinet had agreed that the civil and military authorities in Palestine should make no effort to oppose the setting up of a Jewish State or a move into Palestine from Transjordan.[14]
                        The United States, together with the United Kingdom favored the annexation by Transjordan. The UK preferred to permit King Abdullah to annex the territory at the earliest date, while the United States preferred to wait until after the conclusion of the Palestine Conciliation Commission brokered negotiations.[15] Jordan formally annexed the West Bank and East Jerusalem on April 24, 1950, giving all residents automatic Jordanian citizenship. West Bank residents had already received the right to claim Jordanian citizenship in December 1949.
                        In other words, Israel is not annexing Palestine but a chunk of Jordan captured in war.

                        More precisely, it is the mirror of the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state. It does not propose to expel the Arabs, only to deny them citizenship.

                            Speaking as Catholic American, this is a revealing analogy. The OP does not propose expelling any Israeli citizens, even Arab Palestinians. The worst it proposes is to treat hostile villages differently than peaceful ones. So, no, not the same at all.

                            A peaceful Palestinain state might. A hostile Palestinian state will create new problems. In particular, it would allow Arab armies to mass in the west bank for an invasion of Israel.

                            The failure to distinguish between these conditions is the source of much mischief. And given the history of the region it's more than a bit foolish to ignore.

                              Sorry- Agree to disagree time. A partition plan that gives Israel the high Ground of the mountains is 'fair'.

                              I know Palestine Canadians who sojourned in the Persian Gulf States and found it terrifying. The Saudis just considered them as 'converted Jews'.


                              In 1945 the Soviet Union Drew the line east of the River San- Poles on one side, Ukranians on the other. The horrible ethnic slaughter petered out.

                              Some peoples just get along- Americans, Canadians, etc. Some need separation for a time- Two States. Right now, it costs the Average American Family 912.00 dollars a YEAR to subsidise Isreal. Or over 50,000.000 Per Family , at Simple interest, over your earning life. Are you getting your money's worth?

                                Today we have election in Israel and may the message will be, that the Israeli population is as much guilty as its government for the crime the Palestinian have to live with - as they see it.

                                So, what will you say if Netanjahu with all the right-wing parties will come in power again and the Palestinian start a final offense and overwhelm Israel? I would say then like you: "Because the Israeli lost and Palestine won, and because Palestine has no reason to expect peace and because control of this land is vital to its security and because the Israeli continue to seek the destruction of Palestine, there is absolutely no reason why Palestine should feel bound on anything".

                                Both views are making us run in a circle. We will never reach the destiny!
                                So, Israel is still having a chance till this evening to accept what the UN like to see.

                                What a luck that we do not talk about this actual situation in Palestine here in Germany much in these days. The "Friends of Israel", mostly from the right-wing parties we have the term "Nazis" for, did try to start an ideological an anti-Palestine offense but no one is taking them for "full" (clear in the head).
