On this board because I voiced that the killing of innocent civilians was wrong and it didn't matter whether those being killed were Israeli or Palestinian one person said and I quote.

I'm sorry calling someone a paedophile isn't a joke
My view. The person who said that isn't worthy of my time. Am I going to sue? Of course not. He or she stand condemned by their words. That's how it should be.
Sorry about the basketball defeat in Latvia (which had a tougher WW2 than Ireland, and may have learned some lessons).
I'm forever grateful for Wales being willing to play Israel in 1958 (when much of the world wouldn't) and reaching the quarter finals of the World Cup.
Legally speaking your words are not libel. They are racist, they are vulgar abuse, and they shame you.
Like most racists you are to be pitied. Not just because you are clearly not too bright, but because you will miss out on all the cultural divergence which makes this world so full of wonderful possibilities. I, and I believe the overwhelming majority of readers of this board, mourn equally for the mothers who have seen their children murdered by bullets fired by men. The blood of Palastinian children is the same colour as that of Israeli children. The cries of anguish seeing your children shot is exactly the same for Jewish mothers as it is for Arab mothers.
Oh and one other thing for you to think about. If I had the power to save just one of the lives lost, be it an Israeli life or a Palestinian life at the cost of Ireland losing a game of Basketball to Latvia, I would do so gladly. And anyone one believes such a pathetic jibe about an essentially meaningless game of Basketball is appropriate in a conversation about nearly 30,000 people being killed and hundreds of thousands wounded , really does need all the pity he or she can get.
