Half of Israelis don't want the mentally retarded living in their vicinity

This makes me so sad. Do you think there would be similar results here?

  • there are also tribes on our planet that won't let a developmentally disabled baby survive for the sake of the tribe's survival. They also won't let twins survive, the mother must choose which one she wants to keep and the other one is killed. Do I think it's right? No. Do I feel that they should do what I feel is right? No. It is not my culture. Not everyone can live up to our standards.

    Depends - would it be out in the open voting or anonymous secret ballots?

  • As NP said, if the ballots were done secretly, we'd prob have the same results. If it was open polling, then we'd have highly skewed results....of course in the direction that wouldn't make us look as terrible as the Israelis! But then again, the Israelis are a kooky bunch. Just look at their concentration camps (like Gaza)!!!

  • Concentration camps? Because if a group of people living near you wanted to destroy you and your family you would embrace them wouldn't you?

  • Don't you know Israelis building homes is an international crisis but Iran building nuclear weapons is just peachy.

  • As a parent of a child with Asperger's Syndrome, which is high functioning Autism, it IS like that here! People don't want to socialize with you because your child is different. As soon as you say "Autism" most get this scared look and you never hear from them again.
