    Israel's burden isn't to prove that their better then the Palestinians. Any decent country should achieve that without a lot of effort.

    I see no proof that they're worthy of everything we give them. And they're not, because we don't give it to them- they take it from us. They take it from us with their unbelievably powerful lobbying institutions, their vast wealth and our pathetic representatives subservience to them.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Which has what to do with Israel defending itself from Palestinian terrorism?

    Nothing, just an excuse to spout the "Jewish lobby is evil" sloganeering.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Nothing, but it has a lot to do with our support of Israel. The way I see it, Israel has no particular claim to moral superiority, and our alliance serves no American political, military or economic interest and antagonizes nations that we do have legitimate interests with.

    Furthermore, I believe that Israel is aware of all of this and consciously abuses our lobbying system to distort American foreign policy in their interests.

    Israel can do whatever it wants.

    However, it should not be entitled to our support and money.

    Israel is a vicious violent manipulative welfare queen from hell.

    Republicans complete support of the nation violates all of their supposed principles.

    Then maybe you should give yourself a break for awhile. You have been posting for hours. Maybe take a walk get some air. do something you like to do for awhile and come back later the thread will still be here.

    I totally agree with you that it is tragic that innocents get caught up in this mess and even those of us who are not against Isreal agree. We hate it. But that is where the terrorists chose to hide.

    After all. It is not like any of our opinions really matter, Aren't any world leaders reading this thread looking for advice and ideas.

    I disagree. It is of vital strategic importance to have a staunch and unwavering ally in the middle east.

    Israel is a dessert with nothing of value. What strategic value? Towards our Uzi and date reserves?

    The Islamic countries have oil.

    Israel, particularly its nuclear weapons, does nothing but destabilize the Middle East. How can you possibly expect a country like Iran to de-nuclearize when their hated neighbor has had nuclear weapons for nearly 40 years?

    We get nothing from them and they get everything from us and I haven't noticed that they're particularly thankful.

    The arrogance and entitlement of Israel and even Israelis is unbelievable. They literally think that they're God's people living in God's nation.
