Firstly, as I have mentioned in a few other related threads, I am not a fan of Israeli foreign policy. However, most of these threads that start with
"Israel: blah blah blah" are intended to name, blame and demonise Israel for all the rising tensions in the middle east.
The problem with these types of threads is that they are unfairly balanced to say the least. Any actions that Israel takes is highlighted and strongly
condemned by most of the Western Media. Any time Israel retaliates against Islamic militants, the motive, intent and justification are portrayed
negatively; Israel is stirring up trouble so they can obliterate their enemies.
Any time Islamic militants retaliate, "their cause, independence and resilience to Israeli aggression" is highlighted and they are portrayed as
Freedom fighters seeking justice. Yep, it seems that if Israel tears down that wall, all these problems would have been avoided. Many people are under
the illusion that Israel's decision to build a wall and enforce checkpoints IS the reason for the current trouble in the ME. This is simply not
Why does Israel have this wall? What made them enforce these block aids when in previous years they didn't have any? Why did Israelis feel the need
to exclude Palestinians from these areas? I feel this thread was started for reasons other than discussing the nature of the talks between Iran and
Israel. And those reasons IMO are directly related to my words above, which is why I have included them in this thread.
PS: As I have mentioned in a few other threads, I strongly condemn any Israeli/US military action against Iran. The Iranians have a right to use the
same technology that is available to Western countries. They do not have a history of aggression and should be allowed to enrich their technology as
they see fit. It is simply unfair and unreasonable for a country that prospers as a result of this technology to deny their "enemy" that same
