Question about lack of a post on Gaza.

Do we not have a post about what's happening in Gaza because of the whole "Metafilter doesn't handle Israel/Palestine well", or because no one has made a post yet? [more inside]

Great article inviting bad/ boring comments = deletion?

This deleted post linked to an article on Israel battle tacticts inspired by post-modern philosophy that I found truly fascinating. Now, I guess the poster should have known that the comments would be 10% good faith discusion of the article and 90% standard Israel-Palestine axe grinding ... but for that to merit deletion is just a variant on the heckler's veto.

A poor showing even by the low standards of I/P posts

This is a poor post that links to at least one highly biased source and is generally framed in an exceptionally one-sided manner. While current events may be significant enough to warrant an exception to the (unofficial?) I/P moratorium, this post did not merit it.

To advance a polite community discussion

Hey, there's a new post on Palestine. In the interest of having one of these posts that doesn't get deleted, I thought it might be a nice thing to start with agreeing on extra ground rules for discussion of this historically MeFi-contentious issue. But rather than derail the thread with discussion of discussion ground rules, maybe we should do that here? That's what this post is for. [more inside]

I/P discussions....

I know it's a hard subject to discuss civilly. I have a modest suggestion on how to improve such discussions. [more inside]

I think its time we ban I/P threads completely. This thread gets deleted, while this thread, and this thread stand? [more inside]

Recommand some books set in Israel.

So, pace this post, I'm looking for good books (fiction or non, but prefer fiction) with modern-day Israel as the primary setting. Recommendations?

Sunny day! Sweepin' the clouds away! On my way to where the links are sweet! Can you tell me how to get, how to get to...

I/P snark as usual

I found some of the following comments irresponsible and irritating. This attack nearly hijacked a thread. These comments are off-topic and are not fair to both the poster of the thread and the victim poster.

Middle East News

Oi! I'm a sucker for middle-east threads (and regrettably get irrationally wound up in them) (especially Israel/palestine ones), but the sheer number of similar front page posts in recent days has been exhausting and exhaustive. The topic is covered on every major news site.

What happened to "posting something interesting I've found on the web"?

Can we stop talking about Israel and Palestine?

People say that I/P Filter turns them off, but this link got 78 comments in two hours in the middle of a "slow, yet golden period". As usual, it quickly degenerated into a brawl. Has a whole topic ever been banned from MetaFilter?

No more PR I/P threads!

is it possible that postroad could maybe not post a palestine thread once every couple of days or so? i realize that the odd controversial topic not directly related to israel and palestine is occasionally thrown in, but really.
