hate Israel crowd wants us to slow down and talk reason to the religious zealot.
Really? You sound very irrational with that statement. I can easily claim the same crowd who backed Hitler are backing the Israeli's now! That is why
they are trying to exterminate the Palestinians.
But you won't catch anyone saying something like that, because a survey is needed in order to know for sure. You assume, you are assuming that
everyone who hates Israel's policies didn't speak out against North Korea. Therefore, your statement is irrational because you are falsely pointing
your fingers and generalizing many people.
When it comes to Israel, there's this irrational and twisted hate for them.
Because the people know what it is like to suffer at the hands of a dictator. They know what it is like to starve so don't you think their standard
of care should be a little higher?
The I hate Israel crowd never blames Hamas who wants to bring weapons into Gaza to kill Jews.
Let us clarify something. No one hates Jews, people hate Israel's policies. Big difference. You keep making people sound like they are Nazi's,
Israel should take initiative. They should ask the world to help aid Palestine, but at the same time ask them to search every boat for security
The I hate Israel crowd never complains about the billions given in Aid to Palestine that falls into a black hole and is spent by those who are in
charge in Palestine. When Arafat died he was worth a billion dollars and his wife was taking shopping trips in France. Did Arafat own a Google or an
No one complains about the black holes that are in Africa, and other aid countries. No one talks about how we provide Israel with billions of dollars
which they use on weapons of mass destruction. No one talks about what the Jews in the US want. What is your point?
Yasser Arafat diverted nearly $1 billion in public funds to insure his political survival, but a lot more is unaccounted for.
Jim Prince and a team of American accountants - hired by Arafat's own finance ministry - are combing through Arafat's books. Given what they've
already uncovered, Arafat may be rethinking the decision. Lesley Stahl reports.
"What is Mr. Arafat and the Palestinian Authority worth today?" asks accountant Jim Prince. "Who is controlling that money? Where is that money?
How do we get it back?"
So far, Prince's team has determined that part of the Palestinian leader's wealth was in a secret portfolio worth close to $1 billion -- with
investments in companies like a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Ramallah, a Tunisian cell phone company and venture capital funds in the U.S. and the
Although the money for the portfolio came from public funds like Palestinian taxes, virtually none of it was used for the Palestinian people; it was
all controlled by Arafat. And, Prince says, none of these dealings were made public.
Ross says, "Arafat used to say to me, 'Where's my money? You need to go to the Saudis and get my money.' It was never the Palestinians'
Where is Arafat today? Irrelevant, he is dead. You talk about the man like he is still running Palestine today.
FYI, money is worth nothing when you have you import/export route closed.
This is why Arafat didn't want peace with Israel. It makes no sense to make peace. The I hate Israel crowd from around the world will send them
billions and they will spend it among themselves. They will then blame Israel for everything and the Palestinian people get nothing but dead sons and
The I love Israel crowd send billions to Israel...what is your point?
Israel isn't perfect, but this irrational, I hate Israel or let's blame Israel for everything crowd is truly what I call Hitler sick.
The I hate Israel crowd never blames the crooks who run Palestine, all they can see is Israel.
This is dangerous because it's so irrational.

YOU are truly irrational. I am a mediator, I am on the fence for both sides. Sometimes you must take a step back to see the bigger picture. You are
looking at the picture standing 2 feet away with binoculars.
Calling everyone who doesn't agree with you Hitler sick? Why?
FYI corruption is a two way street. From my point of view, Israel is overdoing this event. Even though they want to secure their cities, they seem to
want to make the Palestinians suffer even more. Grudge runs thicker than love.
