But it's not an address belonging to a forum member. I mean, is it against forum rules to pick a random address and post it? Does that mean all street view posts are against the rules, since they reveal addresses?

I'm not sure under what circumstances anyone would post a "random address", but when someone starts a thread that says, "Hey, there's a guy in my neighborhood doing something I don't like," I can see why the site would prefer to keep the address anonymous.

It's already a charged topic at this point. We don't need "the power of other" descending on some poor schlub's flag pole.

Fixed. Nobody in America cares about Izarel and Pails of time.

I can't believe he is out there EVERY damn time I look on Google. It's as if he either knows I am looking or he never goes inside.

Back to the dating thread for you ... That is NOT how you greet a woman after waking up next to her.

Flying the flag of Palestine is certainly not as provocative and incendiary as flying the Swastika, but it is still pretty provocative. To me it means he supports the Palestinian state. When you do that there are many people who are going to jump to the obvious conclusion that he is against Israel and Jews. Taking any side on the issue is provocative.

What if he has a gripe with a Jewish neighbor and that's why he flies it? Whatever this guy's motives are I'm sure it is fostering more harm than good.
Maybe you should ask him where he sits at the diner?

So you would feel the same way if someone was flying an Israeli flag?

Yes. But maybe to a slightly less a degree.

Why to a lesser degree? As you pointed out, the Israeli -Palestinian conflict is one of the most hot button topics in the world.

Why would you make the leap that a person flying a Palestinian flag is being aggressive? Why can't he be nationalistic, like people who fly Italian, Irish, whatever flags all over this country?

What is the rationale there?

Hopefully your other 61 posts over the past 9 years have been this good. Quality, not quantity.

Well, in Gaza I imagine there may be more people like you who would take the presence of a flag as an aggressive act.

And in Israel, there may be less people like you.

Although, there's no accounting for tourists in either locale, so who knows, really.

Except he didn't hang the flag in either Gaza or Israel. That's kind of an important part to this situation.

I don't know the guys background. It's fair to assume that he's Palestinian. It's also fair to assume that he left there for a better life in America. It's also fair to assume that he's proud of his culture and nationality. I see nothing wrong with that. I do see something wrong with someone assuming he's being 'aggressive' by hanging the flag.
