Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Israel on Monday banned Arab political parties from running in next month's parliamentary elections, drawing accusations of racism by an Arab lawmaker who said he would challenge the decision in the country's Supreme Court.
So, in Israel, if you are not part of a Jewish political party, you are not allowed to run for office anymore.
By doing this, Israel has forfeited any claim to being a democracy, and is inching closer and closer to total apartheid. This is racism at its most basic. Is there any chance of the supreme court overturning this? Even if they do, will their decision be followed? It seems as of late that the court speaks and no one listens.
I see this possibly setting off a violent uprising in Israel itself.
(This should be kept separate from the Gaza thread, because this isn't about the war, it's about Israel's internal politics.)
