Israel taps teens to become 'interceptors' in cyberwarfare

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

You are perfectly able to use Wikipedia - go read it. There is no point in referecing links ot what is a public service.

My posts on this subject are far more rational and factual than yours - i note the various personal attacks you tried - and i ignored - a clear sign of someone who knows that they lost the argument and resorts to name calling. Or maybe just immature?

The survey link is factual evidence of the attitude and treatment of arabs by Israelis - the numbers presented are facts. There might be comments and opinion on them, but that bare facts of the survey are there too.

What other arabs countries might do is not relelevant to the Israeli treatment of it's own citizens.

That arabs can vote doesnt really help when they are are made a minority by racist laws excluding many of them from their own land of birth.

I notice that you dont mention the US government comments Even a country that massively supports Israel even says they discriminate against the arabs!

Israel is a terrorist state building on illegally occupied land. These are unarguable facts. There might be historical reasons for it, but it doesnt make it right.

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

Im sure you are quite capable of using Wikipedia for all the above. I am not wasting vast amounts of my time documenting what is widely available. I leave filling pages with lame sounding crap to you.

In terms of your new claim that arabs are not discriminated against by Israel - There is overwhelming evidence that this is not the case. See http://www.richardsilverstein.com/2012/10/23/survey-of-israeli-racism-58-of-jews-label-their-state-apartheid/

Also couple of direct quotes

"Israel can claim the title of most racist state in the developed world,” Israeli author Sami Michael said at the opening of an international conference of the Association for Israel Studies at an Israeli university

According to the 2004 U.S. State Department Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for Israel and the Occupied Territories, the Israeli government had done "little to reduce institutional, legal, and societal discrimination against the country's Arab citizens."

The 2005 US Department of State report on Israel wrote: "there were problems in some areas, including... institutional, legal, and societal discrimination against the country’s Arab citizens"

In December 2010, dozens of Jewish rabbis issued an edict against renting or selling real estate to non-Jews, particularly Arab citizens.

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

You are a very poor appologist for an apatheid and terrorist state; your arguments and references are laughable - I don't need to post any evidence - the general aspects of what happened and continues to happen in Israel are widely known and even more widely documented. There is plenty of balanced commentary for you to go read on the Wikipedia page...

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

You are now contradicting your own previous claim "the self-imposed exile of the Arab Palestinians, brought about by the invasion of Israel by other Arabs"

Getting your lies mixed up?

And nice cherry picking of meaningless opinion pieces. Wikipedia has a good and reasonably balanced (pro Israeli if anything) history of what actually happened. It doesnt match your imagination very closely....

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

The 'Nakba' as the Palestians would call it actually has many correlations with the Holocaust so i think it is a very appropriate and valid comparison Both were based around ethnic cleansing and genocide - by the Nazis on one hand and by the Israelis on the other.

And by the way - most of the Palestinian population expulsions happened before 1948 war with the Arabs had even started - or though there were some notable cases of ethnic cleansing and genocide then too. For instance the attrocities perpetrated by David Ben-Gurian and Yitzhak Rabin, the most well known of which is commonly known as the Lydda Death March.

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

The choice of other arab countries not to accept a problem created by Israel being moved onto their doorstep is nothing to do with the Palestinians. There is also a very good reason not to do this in that it would remove a reason for Israel to have to address a settlement over the stolen land and occupied territories that it still holds.

I do note that Israel seems to have no problem recently importing hundreds of thousands of 'Jewish refugees' from Etiopia, Russia, etc, so im sure it could accomodate any Palestinans that wished to return.

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

It seem you know very little about middle east history - unless you have a very wide ranging definition of 'self-imposed'.

The exile of the native Palestinians was mostly due to activities of (now famous) Jewish terrorists like Menachem, together with Jewish terrorist organisations like Irgun and Lehi and later the Israeli army running a campaign of ongoing ethnic cleaning - backed by (well documented) massacres, rapes, imprisonment, harassment, systematic looting and mortar attacks, followed up by racist laws created to prevent the residents of Palestinian villages ever returning!

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

Whatever claims individual jews might have against other arab countries has nothing whatsoever to do with the Palestinians...

Re: "It was not immediately clear, however...

That's just crap - most were economic migrants from Europe at the end of the last war. Hell now they are even importing 'Ethiopian Jews' (black)!

The most equitable solution would be a return to within the defined borders of the Israeli part of Palestine as per 1967 of course. Not an ideal solution, and the Israeli state should have to recompense any displaced palestinians for their stolen land / property and / or give them the right of return plus compensation.

You are so right; I should have qualified the search in quotes to filter irrelevant results. Here you go:

Re: Completely lost

Basically it just says the future rate of temperature rise might be slightly slower than the last prediction. The new rise predicted is still potentially catastrophic over the long term - it is not in anyway saying global warming isnt happening. Rainfall would be expected to rise in some areas as a warmer atmosphere can hold more water.

It is not saying that global warming stopped over ther last 20 years - only that the rate of increase has slowed - which is not exceptional for such a short period. The long term graph still clearly shows tha the trend is steadily upwards....

Re: Microsoft Fixes

What complete crap. I dont think you have a clue what you are talking about.

Windows has a far better, more integrated and more modular security architecture than Linux.

Windows has exactly the same minimum privilege model - except that things like SEL and AppArmor are integral to the OS and not bolt on after thoughts (plus they are much more capable too - have you looked at AppArmor and SEL in detail? - its total suck. You can get round all AppArmor restictions simply by creating a hard link to a file, and SEL can't control access to files mounted via NFS)

Ditto windows has signed applications and updates (ever heard of Windows Update?)

Compatibility between kernel versions? I mean you are just so clueless it's unreal. There are countless issues migrating between major kernel releases. Plus no major Linux enterprise distributions support in place upgrades for major releases like with Windows - you have to do a clean install.

No recent Windows vulnerabilites have been anything to do with support for legacy apps.

Windows RT runs the exact same kernel as Windows 8 - it is just recompiled for the Arm CPU!

UEFI and trusted computing 'doesnt make the system more secure?' Moron. I suggest you look up what trusted computing means, and read about how Windows uses Secure Boot with UEFI. There has to date been no virus or boot loader that can bypass Windows security on a UEFI firmware with the default setting of

Secure Boot turned on.

Re: ...spend “is not proportional to its effectiveness”

Open BSD is a reasonable answer - it has a relatively low vulnerabiitiy count

Linux isnt - it is much worse for vulnerabiities than Windows - and is a hackers dream on the internet...

Re: Blame staff for infections more than poor value AV software

In an enterprise, you need more than just 'Free AV' - you need to be sure that your devices have up to date AV software and definiation - and you need to be able to report on exceptions. You also need central control of AV policies and exceptions. If there is a free product that does this well, then I havnt found it yet.

Also many vendor enterprise AV solutions are part of a suite that includes full endpoint control (e.g. access control to CDs, USB, etc, and control of encryption on portable media, configurable IPS and firewall, etc, etc.)

Re: ...spend “is not proportional to its effectiveness”

What do you call a 'Secure OS'? For instance most Linux distributions have loads more vulnerabiities than Windows does, as does OS-X.

Re: Two thirds of the country ?

Amnesty international are certainly a more reliable and respected organisation than the Israeli government. Most of the Israeli leaders have been self confessed terrrorists.

I am not clear how you think what an organisation like Hamas does, justifies terrorist actions against a whole population by a state? (Although to be fair, Hamas doesnt have any long range weapons that can be used with much degree of discrimination as to what the actual target will be.)

I refer to Israel being defined as a terrorist state in at least 2 Amnesty International Annual reports - and who I view as a relatively impartial organisation.
