I know this… still more Palestinians voted for Hamas than the moderate alternative, while knowing they were an organisation who want to exterminate Jews and Israel… how did those Palestinian's who voted for Hamas think it would end up.

 

 

They 'did a Putin' on the Palestinian opposition to stop that happening:  

Gaza: Palestinians tortured, summarily killed by Hamas forces during 2014 conflict

Hamas forces carried out a brutal campaign of abductions, torture and unlawful killings against Palestinians accused of “collaborating” with Israel and others during Israel’s military offensive against Gaza in July and August 2014, according to a new report by Amnesty International.

‘Strangling Necks’: Abduction, torture and summary killings of Palestinians by Hamas forces during the 2014 Gaza/Israel conflict highlights a series of abuses, such as the extrajudicial execution of at least 23 Palestinians and the arrest and torture of dozens of others, including members and supporters of Hamas’s political rivals, Fatah.

“It is absolutely appalling that, while Israeli forces were inflicting massive death and destruction upon the people in Gaza, Hamas forces took the opportunity to ruthlessly settle scores, carrying out a series of unlawful killings and other grave abuses,” said Philip Luther, Director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Amnesty International.

“In the chaos of the conflict, the de facto Hamas administration granted its security forces free rein to carry out horrific abuses including against people in its custody. These spine-chilling actions, some of which amount to war crimes, were designed to exact revenge and spread fear across the Gaza Strip.”

Exactly why Israel should be allowed to finish the job.

What has that got to do with China joining Russia in a world war… I’ll tell you, nowt. 

Russia and China would most definitely be on the same side should any global conflict kick off along with the rest of the group and until Bolsonaro was ousted Brazil would've been too not sure if da Silva has the same aims when it comes to BRICS as his predecessor.

As well as a financial organisation BRICS also aims to rival the American/western led UN/NATO control on the world

Good luck with that one. There won’t be a world war over Israel attacking Palestine… and China wont be cosying up with Putin in any event. They ain’t stupid.

As the song goes, they've just got to get used to living next door to Hamas...

Sorry, heard the Alice song on the radio this morning and it's now in my head as hamas.

I had a similar thing with "I beg your pardon ... I never promised you Osama Bin Laden". Can't hear the song any other way now.

Aye... They want cheap fuel, useful idiot territory. Have you checked how much China exports to the USA? That might give you a clue. But I wont hold my breath   

Exactly. China looks after itself.

Iirc, there was a recent "meeting" between Putin and another of his "allies" in the North Korean leader. They wouldn't go near each other, and the body language was terrible.

Total lack of trust between dictators, that wouldn't end well if push came to shove. A fine historical example in Stalin/Hitler.

Well yeh. They have two old codgers as the best candidates for President which is quite frightening for their democracy.

No lessons from me on politics.. just using commonsense, China will not go to war with the USA because they are their biggest export market.... and they do not really care what is happening in the Middle East, As TMGJ correctly states China only cares about China.

And Russia won’t go to war with Ukraine because they can’t cope with the economic sanctions. Oh! Common sense has gone now.

Honestly you are a nice bloke by all accounts but a bit thick 😅

Lost the argument when you start calling people thick.

Anyway. Russia needs China more than China needs Russia. America and China need each other equally.

Other parties are just support actors.

Russia is like a third world country compared to China. Economically and militarily, Russia is in a state of rapid decline. They do have a lot of nuclear weapons though. It’s the only thing that keeps them relevant as a major power.
