I dislike dissent- especially on a forum for whose members I have so much respect- BUT.
Israel was made a State. A Sovereign Country. They have the right to protect themselves from terrorism as any country does. Hezbollah and Hammas
are terrorist organizations that have slowly and stealthily encroached upon the State of Israel. I don't always agree with Israel. They tick me off
often. However, if Canada and Mexico were CONSTANTLY lobbing bombs into Iowa of Oregon or Louisiana, the US would fight back, HARD. Or if Germany
invaded France.....hmmm.....that started 2 World Wars.
Israel is an oasis of Jewish heritage surrounded by nations who would as soon see her wiped off the globe as look at her. To stand by and claim that
ISRAEL is the bad guy here makes me violently ill. Time for Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Iran, saudi, etc., to ACCEPT a Jewish country in their midst and
resettle the Palestinians in countries where they have brethren, and let Israel have a piece of land no bigger than New Jersey. NOT to defend Israel
is equivalent to allowing another genocidal act, and I won't sit idly by while it happens, no matter how violently they've been FORCED to defend
Forgive me if I offend people on this thread. I take no issue with the peaceful Muslim world- only those who would seek to re-enact 1453 (fall of
Byzantium) and create a great Caliphate from The Mediterranean to the Himalayas.
