Seriously though. Your guilt tripping on the family thing.
No dzonatas is correct we are being purposefully distracted from domestic events by a media and a government that tries to portray the Iran/Israel
issues as being somehow more important.
The truth is Iran poses no threat to us and if it weren’t for its oil we would have little interest in it. American foreign policy seems to only
take exception to dictatorial and repressive governments if they either a. have abundant natural resources to exploit or b. Israel doesn’t like
them, or c. both.
A lot of Americans are in fact sick of the constant priority and preference being given to Israel and it’s constant squeaky wheel get’s the grease
This is basically what the thread is about that age old Zionist love of its always got to be about us, someone wants to hurt the Jews!
For crying out loud Israel needs to learn to take care of its own problems and stop creating so many problems.
Americans are sick of it and the truth is Americans in general were more apt to side with Israel when it was the underdog, Americans love underdogs.
Yet somewhere along the way Israel largely with American’s help ceased being the underdog and turned into the dominant and often oppressive and
Once you loose the underdog status you loose a lot of American goodwill. America has done a lot for Israel but it certainly hasn’t done much in
return except to keep holding out its hand. Worse still it has increasingly adopted the look the gift horse in the mouth philosophy with the current
Like most of the American Government is out of touch with the true pulse and mood of the people, the Israeli government too is out of touch with the
true pulse and mood of the American people.
Both the American Government and the Israeli Government keep trying to tell us as people how we ought to feel and what our priorities ought to be in a
way that is completely oblivious to the pulse, mood and more importantly the real needs of the American people.
It’s backfiring on Washington and it’s backfiring on Israel too and no amount of propaganda or peer pressure is going to overcome that.
It’s time for some entities to stop dictating and to start listening otherwise they are at increased risk of the people getting fed up and starting
to do some serious dictating of their own.
We gave Israel an inch they have taken a mile and have more than sufficient enough rope to hang themselves with as a result and seem intent on doing
Complaining to the fed up American people about this is pointless when in reality what complaint there should be is with the Zionist government in
Israel and its poorly thoughout actions and approaches that no longer consider the American people's mood or pulse or needs but just considers us to
be pliable and maelable.
