    Yikes!
    We should send her to cover Gitmo.
    That would scare the hell out of the terrorists.
    Once the word gets out that this is their conduit to the world, she could prove the solution to ending global terrorism.
    Then Israeli's and the West could live a little more peacefully.

    Why on Earth would you be anti-Israel?

    I'm not anti-Israel, per se. But I am certainly not pro-Israel. Basically, I don't think Israel should get the pass it gets for all manner of human rights violations that, if committed by any other country, would bring down the scorn of the international community.

    Basically, I think Israel is just as much at fault for the Palestine conflict as anyone else.

    I always find it odd how if you say any other country did something wrong, it's acceptable, but when you say that Israel might have acted in a less than ideal manor, you are anti-Israel and anti-Jew.

    Just wondering. Did you call for an investgigation when terrorists killed 80 people in the house of worship in Pakistan? Did you call for an investigation when Iran murdered it's own citizens for demonstrating? If not, why not.

    Why do you think the UN would be less neutral?

    I think it's Al Quaeda who did this, and I think there is an investigation. No one says there should be no investigation on AQ.

    I don't think there was an investigation because it was quite clear that the Iranian regime was guilty, Iran has been condemned and this is a good thing.

    Exactly. I think that the pro-Israel side of the on-going discussion has done a very good job of clinging to and amplifying the victimhood of the Jewish people in history and tying that to Israel as a nation. And it has been done in such a way as to invoke anti-Semitism sentiments as a condemnation for even thinking to question Israel let alone criticize it.

    Frankly, at this point, the questions of historical victimization of the Jewish people and of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict are separate issues, entirely. They have nothing to do with each other.

    The UN has, in it's statements so far, not been really neutral on the situation to my mind. There would at the very least be an appearance of pre-judging. The same holds true for any Israeli group doing an investigation. This kinda points to the problem, which is that most have strong opinions about Israel, and as such, it would be hard to get a really independent, neutral investigation.
