There's a difference between the deliberate use of perjorative language and an accepted term. The terms Pole and Saudi are perfectly acceptable, as is the term Brit for that matter, because there is no racist undertone. Pal, Paki and Polack are all offensive, and people that use those terms do so deliberately to cause offence. The one exception being GW Bush who used it because he was stupid. A more subtle type of racism is displays by Foofie who deliberately uses the spelling Palestinean, similarly to the way Churchill mispronounced Nazi, in order to cause annoyance.
Advocate is a racist bigot, when Gungasnake posted remarks about stripping the Palestinians naked and forcing them to march at gunpoint, Advocate stayed silent. Compare that to the reactions of those who sympathise with the Palestinians regarding Krumple's vile holocaust denial. Immediately Krumple was taken to task, particularly as she used Palestine as an excuse for her bigotry.
Advocate is only different from Oralboy in terms of presentation, his response, as you've noted, is to ignore all evidence of Palestinians being mistreated and to peddle half truths and disinformation as well as downright lies.
It's a sorry state of affairs when the most reasonable voice speaking out in favour of Israel is Foofie, with his casual racism and simplistic use of stereotypes.

The law states that individuals or organizations who publicize a call for an economic, cultural or academic boycott against a person or entity merely because of its affiliation to the State of Israel and/or to an Israeli institute and/or to a specific region under Israeli control, may be sued civilly, in tort, by a party claiming that it might be damaged by such a boycott. The law also allows Israeli authorities to deny benefits from individuals or organizations - such as tax exemptions or participation in government contracts - if they have publicized a call to boycott and/or if they have obligated to participate in a boycott. The law is in force from 13 July 2011 except for section 4 (withdrawing state benefits) which will take effect on 11 October 2011.
You are a big liar. I never said those things.
Importantly, the Muslim countries have incorporated the Muslim scriptures into their bodies of law.
Izzy: Like everything you write about Moslems, it's light on facts/detail, heavy on prejudice.
If I thought every Muslim country had sharia law, I would say this. I have no idea as to what countries use it.
