There's over 1 billion Muslims in the Middle East that can live together in harmony(Iraq being an exception). Throw in 7 million Jews
into the mix and the Muslims are screaming "Jihad!"...
i coudn't care who's right or wrong. It really doesn't matter. What does matter is the situation RIGHT NOW:
1- Nasrallah calling for all-out war against Israel
2- Syria sending armored divisions to the border
3- Hamas' non-stop bombardment of Sderot
4- Israels' raids into Gaza
5- Israeli War Games
6- Iranian Pres. calling for the destruction of Israel
7- Israel threatening to respond to any Iranian attack
8- Israel holding Syria accountable for Hezbollah attacks
This list is not in chronological order and I'm sure the list can go on and on...
It seems that many people here would just LOVE to see Israel disappear. I can understand their passionate hatred as it has existed for... ever
There are many bad things that people say about Israel. Some of them are true but most of the accusations should be directed towards the religious
Jews, which actually represents a small percentage of the Jewish population. They, unfortunately, are the stereotypes that people go by. The same can
be said about Islam, where the more religious people are usually the more extreme people.
For Europeans that hate the State of Israel, they really should be grateful that they are there. Most people don't realize that Israel IS the Tip of
the Sword of the Western World. If Israel falls into Muslim hands, then it's only a matter of time before they start targeting Europe on a daily
As for Nuclear Weapons, most people keep whining about "why Israel can have the bomb and Iran can't?" and why the UN is not doing anything about
it?" The answer is pretty simple. It's the same reason why the UN doesn't question the US, UK, Russia, or China's programs. It's because THEY
ALREADY HAVE IT!!! The UN won't question the US program, because they know they will get a nuke shoved up their a$$. And the same goes for any other
nuclear-powered nation. The goal these days is to prevent another country from having the bomb.
And besides, the world knows that Iran are trying to build the bomb and therefore, they can stop(or try at least) Iran from developing these weapons.
Mordechai Vanunu was about 30 years late to show the world that Israel had it. At this point, there's not much the world can do. Either way, when you
look at Israels' record of handling their nukes, you can see they are extremely responsible about it. People don't realize how close they came to
using them in '73. When you think about it, If Israel are so hellbent in killing Arabs as most people claim, then they would've done it a LONG TIME
I'm not using this as an excuse that Israel SHOULD HAVE it. I don't believe any country should have it. All I'm saying is I'd rather have Israel
possessing them than Iran, because of Ahmadinejad's remarks and stance towards Israel.
As for today's situation, I hope it calms down. All hell will break loose if it doesn't. Israel will probably play with the Hezbollah again like in
'06(Israels' tactics drove me nuts!!!) and will take on Syria in a more serious manner. I just hope this doesn't play out, because if one rocket
lands in Tel-Aviv, Damascus might not exist. I don't think anybody wants that.
As for Gaza, I would expect a full-scale invasion with complete disregard for UN/world opinion. They're probably going to take out all their
frustration on them and that will be extremely dangerous. Hopefully, this does not happen.
This region is on the brink of massive destruction. I just hope they can resolve this conflict quickly before it gets out of hand. Maybe someday,
hopefully, there will be peace over there...
