This is better because I don't think they should die or be evicted from their homes or live in poverty because of my hateful stereotyping.
Besides, I don't think you know what zionism means... Hate is what defines it. So it's far from a stereotype.

I'll admit my knowledge of Zionism is limited, but I believed it was, at it's core, the belief in the establishment of a permanent Jewish state. This isn't a group defined by hate? Therefore, whatever your opinion on the Gaza strip, you are still defining a movement by stereotypes which are untruthful.

And on a wider note, though hateful stereotypes are not, in that moment, as bad in terms of their immediate effect; they still add to an institutionalised prejudice against said group.

All religions are wrong. There is no god. Just life and the universe. Fighting over why it's here, or how, is really very stupid.

Also, To re-rail the topic, What would the consequences be if Russia DID invade other neighboring countries? I mean, obviously, if they're NATO allies, war would break out...

Humanity has moved far beyond that. Peace is no longer a realistic option. This will be Total Annihilation.

It would suck to be in the ISS when that goes down. You would be the only surviving, healthy humans, and you would have nothing to come back to...

Depressing.

The ISS has russians and americans on it. It undoubtedly has some military value. I doubt it will stay in orbit when shit gets down.
