    No they're just another obnoxious Semitic tribe with delusions of grandeur. They're hardly different from the Arabs, they just happen to be the victims of European oppression so we all feel sensitive towards them.

    This is an issue I really can't discuss with people older then me, because my parents generation just can't escape the pro-Israeli indoctrination they've grown up in.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    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.
    No, Israel is a Democracy defending itself from evil.
    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.

    No, you may not. It would be a lie coming from you and you have nothing to back that claim up.

    And you can't get over the anti-Israeli indoctrination that you think makes you cool.

    I'd be really surprised if this happened. The local fundamentalists are being closely watched and if they pop their heads up to fart our security will be watching.

    Anyhow, on the raids - Israel has been targeting the underground supply tunnels which are used to smuggle weapons into Gaza from Egypt. I watched BBC reporters some months back following the tunnelers and basically Israel is doing Egypt a big favour here too. Egypt can't deal with the illegals themselves for fear of being targeted by home grown fundamentalists.

    There's no easy right or wrong here, Hamas are an extreme reaction to the plight of the Palestinians but equally Israeli citizens have been targeted and Israel has a duty to protect its people. The worrying element is that Israel has started calling up reservists now prior to sending ground troops in, predictably there have been condemnations and calls for restraint from around the world but in this instance Israel can point at the previous provocation and ask why those same voices weren't calling for Hamas to stop launching rockets into Israel.

    I'm not that much older than you. And I don't appreciate you implying that a differing view from yours has to be the result of indoctrination rather than reason.

    I apologize for that comment, it was unfair and unreasonable.

    However there is a noticeable difference between my generation (and I've noticed, pretty much my generation alone) and everyone else when it comes to Israel.

    And to be honest there is a huge amount of "Jews are sad" literature foisted on all school students. I think for older people the Israelis successfully translated this into support for Israel (which is perhaps Israel's most disgusting crime). I think their ability to do that is faltering. Hence my generation.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
