    All women deserve rights. But we're talking about nuclear weapons, not women's rights. Why do you continue to attempt a derailing of the thread?

    The majority of Jews in Israel don't support Netanyahu. Likud got 23.4% of the vote in the recent election. Bibi gets power because he has the advantage in building coalitions, not majority support. Only partisan idiots pretend that personal feelings about him are equivalent to the state of Israel or the entire Jewish people.

    No, in your simpleton messages view the only issue is nuclear weapons. In fact, it is about the economic and military capabilities of Iran and the stability of their government. The nuclear weapons issue is part of the topic, but also for the actual deal is only a diversion from the real issues.

    No, only idiots declare the winner of the election lost the election.

    USFP isn't anymore interested in women's rights in Iran than it is in Saudi Arabia.

    Re: Do the majority of U.S. Jews support Netanyahu?

    Muslims are now nearly 1/4th of the world population. They control massive amounts of earth's natural resources and not just oil.

    The unending persecutions of Jews across world history, murderous persecutions, combined with the Jewish religion is neither about empire building nor forcing people to convert to Judaism (unlike Islam and Christianity), the number of Jews in the world other than in the USA are so small as to be completely irrelevant. Israel has no natural resources of any significance. Jews are increasingly a smaller percentage of US population and increasingly are fully assimilated into American society - increasingly more "American" and less "Jewish" with each generation.

    The only reason Israel still exists as a Jewish nation is:

    1. Israel obtained a few atomic and then nuclear weapons.

    2. It is to the advantage of Muslim theocratic and military dictators to divert the anger of their impoverished and oppressed populations against the Jews to prevent internal revolution.

    3. It is to the advantage of the Western powers, specifically the USA, UK and France to divert the same anger at Jews rather than the West, for which such Western powers see Muslim oil field still as Western property.

    4. There remains a Jewish influence on American media which was supportive of Israel, though that is declining

    5. American Christians tend to support Jews over Muslims, particularly since 9-11 and subsequent acts of terrorism in the world, plus the M.E. wars.

    As people post about what other countries of the world think about Israel? They all essentially eliminated Jews from their population in any relevant numbers decades to centuries below. Most have less reason to care about the fate of Jews in Israel than they do blacks in Nigeria.

    Israel is a lifeboat of a constant level of isolation and necessary desperation. They actually don't have many true friends among other nations, if any. Ultimately, Israel does stand alone. What is happening now is another example of this.

    That makes no sense. If they're Jewish, and Jews are being butchered, tortured, etc., they would certainly know it, since they'd be experiencing it, right?

    Your's is the most bizarre statement of the forum's holocaust deniers yet - to claim the holocaust and atrocities against Jews couldn't have happened because they would have known it was happening if it did.

    Personally, I believe anti-Semitic holocaust deniers are among the most despicable and evil people on earth. Certainly the absolutely worst form of bigot and racist.

    Well, not that I agree with you for a moment that solletica is a holocaust denier or anti-Semitic, why would hatred of Jews be worse then hatred of Muslims, why would that be "the absolute worst form of bigot and racist"?
