I think it's horrible too. It's horrible what Europeans did to Natives. It's terrible what the Nazis did to the Jewish people. It's terrible what happened in South Africa's apartheid. It's terrible what Israel is doing to Palestine. All of it is terrible & disgusting & horrible.

Unfortunately, we can't change what's happened in the past. But we can try to change what's happening currently and prevent it from happening in the future. That's why topics like this and spreading awareness are important.

I was referring to the Arab Palestinians who practice Christianity. There is over 50,000 Palestinian Christians in the Palestinian territories. That number doesn't even count the more than 100,000 Palestinian Christians who actually live in Israel alongside Jewish Israelis as Israeli citizens.

They HATE each other. No amount of thoughts and prayers will fix that. Even if they reach an agreement, time and hate will unravel it.

And yeah, this is a topic for Off Topic. :rose:



you're right. politics aren't supposed to be discussed here. maybe a viking will do the right thing and close it.

This issue is more about human rights than it is politics. Also about keeping the Palestinian people in our thoughts and prayers. :thumbsup:

It says "we advise you", doesn't say "we forbid you". Also says "as needed". :)

This thread is fine. It's asking for thoughts and prayers for PALESTINIANS. Palestine isn't a religion or a political entity.

Maybe they will just moderate it as needed and I'm sure if it starts any conflict the Vikings will take care of it :hug:

What is happening is very sad and unfortunate, and even more so in this dangerous time of pandemic. This conflict will also affect my beloved country of cedars, Lebanon. :heartbroken:

Prayers :star: :heart:

This all took place during the holiest month in Islam - Ramadan. Ramadan is supposed to be a time of fasting, family, community, and spiritual reflection and Eid is the holiday that marks the end of Ramadan and is a time of celebration for Muslims around the world. My heart aches for the families who have lost their homes, loved ones, and who have had to witness and endure such horrifying and traumatic events. Please keep the Palestinian people in your thoughts and prayers during this time.


Thoughts and prayers don't solve problems only actions can do that.

I’m heartbroken that in 2021 we STILL are dealing with genocide, religious wars, nationalism, rejection of science, and everything else we could and should have learned from after countless instances of history repeating itself.

As for whether or not this belongs on the forums, that’s a moot point. It may not directly affect the game, but everything is interconnected to a degree. Maybe General Discussions would be more appropriate, but we all know there’s less traffic there and if someone wants to use this section to spread awareness, I have nothing against that.

I also have nothing against thoughts and prayers, but as someone else mentioned, that alone is not enough and actions are what lead to change. :heartbroken:
