2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Yes, the third largest party because it's several other Arab parties joined together (hence 'Joint' List).
Yes? And Zionist Union (second largest in the Knesset) is three parties joined together, and The Jewish Home is two parties joined together, as is United Torah Judaism...

Also, 13 out of 120 people is barely 11%. while Palestinians reportedly take up 20% of Israel's population. If that means Palestinians are treated equally in Israel, then the fact that roughly 20% of US Congress is female (while women make up 50.8% of the US population) means that sexism is over in America and women are not treated unfairly or unequally compared to men.
Well, nobody is stopping those 20% for voting -- for the Joint List or otherwise. If they want more representation they have the power to make it happen. I won't address the bit about America because I don't want to derail the thread over my sceptical views re: the ostensibly unequal position of women in the US.

I've seen no mention of Israeli strikes on Palestinians from you, Castus, or that foreign powers helped to establish "Jewish national home" while the Palestinians are already there.

I'm fairly sure I mentioned Israeli strikes on Israel. In fact I'm pretty sure I advocated for more of them.

Quote
the Arabs said from the beginning of the partitioning of Palestine that they would not accept it. Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced because of it.
Yep.

Violent protest is how people show a government their anger when that government or other powers- like the UN- refuses to listen. While I also don't agree with the extreme violence, it's not for no reason.
Listen to what? Once the Palestinians have something worth saying I'm sure we'll listen. Although as I've said, the UN is willing to listen to them any old time.
