No one here is putting life over history. I was talking about rebels and government forces. Other than that, I didn't see anyone do that.


Nobody directly said that but I think the hostility towards Orca for saying otherwise was unwarranted.


I think what was unwarranted was Orca's strawman, making the claim that anybody here values human life less than that of a building.

If you want to kill each other, fine, but leave historical sites out of it.


It's not a strawman if someone else literally says it.

Was there resolution on the balla thread that caused self-banishment or is GameFAQs resident Jew patrol working his way back into things slowly?


So... nothing important to say?


LoL.

You're only forgiven if you come back to The Forum's Minecraft server. :p

oh, so it's not putting history over life, it's putting history over syrian government and rebel life. That's so... Not different at all actually. Maybe even worse 'cause it could potentially be racist.

I feel the need to ask... did anyone still actively use that synagogue, or was it entirely a historical site?

I'm sorry, it wasn't a UNESCO site so calling it a historical site is simply A Matter Of Opinion.

And you don't think Assad did this to gain sympathy for his government? You don't think Muslim extremists want Israel coming in there and taking Assad out so it makes it easier to take over the government.

Kill Assad and be done with this! He is a murderer after all, what more proof do we need right?

What could they possibly gain from destroying a synagogue, and one so important for their history? That would be like the Pope burning and looting the Sistine Chapel.


the rebels are probably trading the loot for weapons


Think he was talking about Israel in that scenario since someone blamed them. Why would Israel destroy something part of their history? That's where his analogy of the Pope destroying the Sistine Chapel comes in Most Muslims in that part of the world dislike Jews so the Islamic rebels obviously dgaf.



Yes, thank you.

If i was israeli i would approve my government going and stealing these artifacts.

Just like i would approve an egyptian commando sacking all these western museums that hold egyptian relics.



Even if I were to entertain such a notion of them taking the artifacts so they don't fall into Muslim hands, they wouldn't have burned it down afterwards.

Unless you're trying to make the claim that you're my straw account, it literally can't be a strawman.
