I do not really understand your position on all this….
Yes, the UN carved up this area and that has created much of the problems we see today, but they were the powers of that time to do it. Throughout
history those who hold the power tend to do these things…nothing new here
The Jews wanted a state of their own and so they bought it, fought for it and any number of other things to get it and they did. This is now history
as it is with so many other countries that were created as they moved the indigenous people aside….nothing new here
Middle East is extreme, which is how all the countries over there see things as normal. Israel is doing a lot less than what goes on in other
countries throughout that region. One small difference is Israel does kill civilians in their tactical moves against an armed enemy, but the
civilians are not the target. What we see with many other countries in that area is civilians are the sole target. This is all a part of the
extremism of what everyone over there is willing to do for their cause, so why do people gasp at Israel and barely blink on worst events that happen
daily throughout the region.
Hamas and so many other organizations are corrupt and fanatical, and they would do anything for their cause even killed their own people for it, but
so many want to paint a different picture of them. These groups want and feed the war and struggle, they want the US to stay, and they want and help
create the suffering. This is how they maintain control, and a big part of that control is to have devils around them i.e. the US and Israel. ..once
again nothing new here
Countries like Syria and Iran would love to see Israel wiped off the map. In this case it is a religious thing for them, and so Israel could be the
friendliest nation on earth and these objectives to destroy them would not change. We are talking about at a level that a person is willing to strap a
bomb on their chest just to kill two Jews. Iran Screams at the injustice and this is the same country who sent out 10,000s of young people to be mine
hunters during their Iraq/Iran war. This is also the country that views 70,000 students signing up to be suicide bombers as national pride…nothing
The US has had very close ties with Israel and is the only reason the countries around them have not killed every man, women and child there, and so
the US support is extremely un-proportionally in favor of Israel. This is neither right or wrong, for the US has the right to choose who they want as
an ally. Also remember that Saddam and the Taliban were allies too at one point, and that didn’t turn out so well, so sticking with Israel might
also be the US best choice.
1000 Deaths over there means nothing to these people in that area, 10,000 they barely blink, 100,000 and they start to ask questions… life is cheap
over there, and they do not care for they only care about their causes and the body count means nothing. Finally nothing new
Because of all this I find so many anti or one-side Israel posts as hypocritical.
