    I am certain you have disagreements with some of their policies, and often feel quite strongly about it.

    A Timeline of CIA Atrocities

    CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: "We'll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us." The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads and even assassination. These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator’s security apparatus to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation, torture and murder. The victims are said to be "communists," but almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders, political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread human rights abuses follow.

    I do not believe so. The area is simply too small to use a nuclear weapon. The nuclear fallout would last for over a thousand years and contaminate the area.

    The Persian culture (Iran) has evolved over thousands of years of recorded history and was among the first civilizations in the world. It held a strikingly complex and stable culture that didn't receive much influence from the outside over millennia. The people are highly intelligent, sophisticated as well as educated, especially the women who are more liberated than many of their Arab neighbors. Iranians are not Arabs....they, I believe, need nuclear power for electricity and cancer cures, etc, not to bomb Israel. They are too smart for such.

    Netanyahu, PM of Israel, is running for reelection and is politically using the US to highlight his closeness with America.....President Obama has declined to meet with him. Everything done by the Israeli PM must be seen through a political prism. I do not trust Netanyahu since the last election when he came to the US saying he favored Mitt Romney. He inserted himself into US politics. Israel may be an ally but Netanyahu is the president of the US.

    What a horrible mistake! It should read "Israel may be an ally, but Netanyahu is NOT the President of the US."

    Forgive my carelessness.

    And? So do lots of Jews living in Israel. I'm also certain you have disagreements with Obama, and often feel quite strongly about those disagreements. So what? It implies nothing about whether I "hate" Israel or you "hate" the U.S.

    But that makes no sense because most American Jews are democrats. Out of 30 Jews in Congress, 29 are democrats.
