    My thought was that Israel should have stated that Gaza was an independent state as soon as they left.
    Israel of 8,000 square miles of the 57,000,000 square miles of land on earth. Why won't you or anyone else specify how much smaller they want Israel and it's defensive zone to be? 5,000 square miles? 1,000 square miles? 1 square mile?

    Last I checked this thread is about Israel....

    The effect of what you want is obvious - to make Jews the minority in Israel as that would be the effect.
    My argument has nothing to do with who is the majority or minority population of the state of Israel..

    Why deny your own advocacy?
    Thats not my "advocacy". Your making a lot of false accusations, and making a lot of false statements about what I believe...
    Just a democratic-socialist "Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression, and violence, and enjoy it to the full."

    They would certainly have that right. Take away the facade of "occupation" from Hamas and Israel should be allowed to do what every other nation on the planet is. Protecting its citizens from attack is the basic precept of any government.

    I don't want it smaller at all. From the time of the 67 war, I wish that Israel was able to pull back to defensible borders and stop there. I don't think most Israelis want to hold onto most of the West Bank.

    No, Gaza would not be part of a contiguous State.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    I'm not sure what that means in practical terms.

    You calling me an anti-Semite is meaningless, because you've set the bar for the accusation so low that anyone to the left of the Likud party is an anti-Semite. Jews and non-Jews alike.

    Anti-Semitism is real, and you flagrantly tossing out accusations to Netanyahu opponents hurts the Jewish people you claim to support. When true anti-Semitism appears, no one will listen.

    At least you admit the strategy behind the GOP actions .


    The question is:

    "What is the strategy behind the actions of the Big 0?"

    He doesn't seem to be a very good ally. First the Ukraine, under the protection of the US and a treaty is abandoned and now Israel.

    Being a US Ally seems like a very bad strategic move while the Big 0 is at the controls of state.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    And how was Ukraine "under the protection of the US"?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
