Why Israel will thwart Obama on settlements...

Further, religious and ultrareligious Jewish settlers insist they have divinely bestowed title to the land. Few passages in the Bible are more frightening to Arabs than Deuteronomy 11:24:

"Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be."

Palestinian Arabs are too weak to legally or militarily challenge the Jewish state's internal expansion. An Israeli court recently ruled that Israel can now confiscate land belonging to Palestinians who once resided in an area but are now refugees pending final settlement.

Having lived in Jerusalem for five years during the salad days of the peace process in the 1990s, I watched settlement builders nibble away at what were once Palestinian homes, villages, and pastures.

I think it's time the U.S stopped funding Israel, as I'm sure the loss of a few billion dollars each year would dent it's operations.

I agree with you. I would take it a step further though. It's time we stop funding EVERYONE that isn't a taxpaying citizen of the United States.

The United States used "Manifest Destiny' to decimate native peoples, because 'God told us we could.' It was our God-given RIGHT to murder indigenous peoples, so that we could bone this land the way we see fit.

I don't see the situation over there as much different. One group of people claiming God has given them the right to displace or murder whatever people might stand in the way. You know, stand in the way, like try to LIVE, or have a home for your children...

I am in total agreement with the two posts above. Further we need to stop Israeli spies in our own government by not allowing people with dual citizenship to hold jobs in the government.

Israel is doing good enough, you can take the training wheels off. As for most of Africa, its a lost cause. Don't listen to what Bono is saying, its lost and can't be saved. Although if the US were to cut off funding then Israel may cut back on supplying its closest friend with ammunition for its many American produced guns. (Seriously, check your AR-15, it has Israeli bullets 7/10 times)
