    You admit you were wrong but you won't apologize?

    What's your major malfunction?

    No the EU is more in place to be a fair broker.
    It condemns when it is needed whereas US will always support Israel, no matter the circumstances.

    US have and always will be anti-muslim/Arab/Palestinian [whatever phrase you want to use], pro Israel.
    Its the way it is therefore any attempts by US to show it wants peace or justice is insulting and will never be taken seriously.

    Sure, show that.
    And also show what Israel is doing in Gaza and the casulties that has occured.

    US would allow Israel to let go of a Nuke if they thought they could get away with it
    Wow...Unceasing rocket attacks and the only real damage is some coffee shops having their windows broken?

    The civilian casualties in Gaza are a direct consequence of Arabs and Muslims staging and firing their rockets from among civilians. The Arabs and Muslims funding and planning these attacks are directly responsible.

    We see over and over that Israel takes unprecedented actions to avoid civilian casualties. Recall in 2006 when fighting Hezbollah, the Israeli's dropped leaflets prior to bombing warning residents that Israel wuld be attacking Hezbollah facilities in thier neighborhoods. Notifying your enemy when you're going to attack and where you're going to attack is unprecedented.

    IRA gave warnings before bombings took place.

    Not as unprecedented as you'd like to imagine.

    Well yeah, 8 years of rocketing. 14-20 Israeli civilians dead.

    I see, the EU is a more fair brokering agent than the US because the EU has convinced itself that indiscriminately attacking civilians is more justifiable than defending yourself from such attacks.

    The US is rightly a pro-democracy ally of Israel seeking to defend a lone democracy from the terror inflicted upon her existence by totalitarian regimes surrounding her.

    I know you've bought the terrorists propaganda hook, line, and sinker, but don't expect others to do so.

    Everytime that land is conceded there is no peace, just more and more violent attacks against Israel.

    Nonsense. These groups exist for one purpose...to eliminate the state of Israel. They do not exist to diplomatically resolve the occupation question. They exist explicitly because they and their suitors cannot tolerate that Israel exists.

    Now you're revealing your ignorance. What you said doesn't make any sense.

    The driving purpose of Hamas and Hezbollah ain't to recover occupied land that Israel captured when defending herself against attacks from other Middle East nations. They're charters reveal their ambition, their objective.
    Israel is not conceding land for peace. They were conceding it because they were losing. Your Ideology blinds you from seeing the truth behind Hezbollah and Hamas. They are terrible, criminal organizations to be sure, but they were formed as resistance groups to Israel occupation. The ME has a history of sharp rhetoric towards Israel, yet they do not go to war. Do you see a pattern?

    Because the EU is not firmly on one side or the other and never have been, it condemns both sides when needed.
    US has never/rarely condemned Israel. Hell, it refused to condemn it in 06 when 2,000 civilians died!

    'Pro Democracy' Hah. If you say so.

    What exactly is the 'terrorist propaganda'?
    And why would i be susceptible to it?

    I wonder how long it will be before certain people figure out that the only thing the terrorists want is the destruction of Israel, and as such, there cannot be any sort of negotiated settlement with them.

    I don't see an equivalency between terrorists giving notice of a bombing and a nation telling residents and the terrorists hiding among them that they would be attacking.

    Well yeah, 8 years of rocketing. 14-20 Israeli civilians dead.
    Yeah, that's it...

    My goodness...

    So if more Israeli's had been killed you'd see that Israeli response as justified? I doubt that very much.

    Your intellectual dishonesty and bad faith are duly noted.
