Why haven't we gone into North Korea to help the millions of starving and now dead children?

There are loads of countries that need help much more than Gaza but they seem to be the one's that shout the loudest, hence get the attention.


Who's to say that one needs more help than the other? The difference between Israel and North Korea is that the American tax-payer is actually funding Israel's atrocities so we can actually do something about it, or supposed to anyway. Americans are directly responsible for Israel's actions, unlike those of North Korea. Also, North Korea makes no bones about what they do, while Israel blames their own genocidal campaign on others, fooling many people. The motto here is to "deny ignorance" so this is why we do this with Israel, as opposed to North Korea or anywhere else.

North Korea vs. South Korea?
That's domestic to Korea
There are however U.S. troops on the border

Rwanda, this is a huge problem and UN has done little
However this is completely domestic to Rwanda

Both these issues are domestic to it's sovereign country.

Israel vs. Palestine is different, it's COMPLETELY different!
It's absolutely different, it's not domestic to one sovereign nation where other countries can only so much involve themselves.

And THAT is the difference, Sovereignty!

Saying something isn't wrong because other evil nations do it too, sounds like a child's excuse.

Israel deserves sanctions more than Iran.

Israel is fast losing support amoung young and educated Americans. I think that once today's 30 something's take control of our country - it will be an alliance that will be reconsidered.

We are not our fathers and we do not stick ideas that are relics of history. Well, at least not most of us.

Intentionally Starving the Palestinians (an enemy of Isreal, as declared by themselves), or drought causing famine in Rwanda.



Israel has never declared the Palestinians an enemy, they always say their enemy is Hamas, a democratically elected government/terrorist group (depending which side you're on)

The thing is, if Israel did declare war on Gaza, this whole blockade would be legal, as they would be at war with another country.

But Israel always says their enemy is the Gaza government, Hamas. They are murdering & starving the Palestinian people because they disagree with the political party running Gaza.

Many will then argue that this Hamas fires thousands of rockets into Israel every year, well... for every rocket fired into Israel you can be sure at least 10 more were fired in the opposite direction, as well as tanks & soldiers sent on revenge missions. Israel always argues it's actions are in self-defence, but the casualties are always mountains higher on the other side.

For those arguing anti-semitism/Israel bashing, their extreme actions & secrecy, coupled with the 100s of reports of beatings, kidnappings, murders of men, women & children cannot be ignored. I don't care if they're jews, muslims, christians or aliens, their actions must be condemned. Playing the race card to debunk the Israeli reports is ignorant.

The recent attack on the internatial aid flotilla has brought much needed attention to their policies & expect to see many more stories in the near future.

Israel did something good because they want something in return..

Britain's Daily Telegraph reported that Israel is set to accept a plan under which it would ease the blockade in return for the international community agreeing to a limited probe into the raid.

And if you read the article, all Israel wants to do is investigate the terrorists/activists,,

I think that's the saddest part... The US and the UK created Israel, and they should be the ones slaying the beasts within it...

Instead of blindly supporting the regime, they should be the ones fighting the rotten apples within that government...

As far as the rest of the world, it's grand time that they wake up and smell the death and suffering that the schizophrenic Israeli government will be bringing to this world...

If the American people found out what is actually going on, they could easily put a stop to it. The problem is the American people will never find out the truth and if they did, they wouldn't believe it. The pro-Israel lobby is too big and powerful and the MSM of course is pro-Zionist.

However, if we started a grassroots effort to educate the public and show facts, then we could succeed. With the support of America, Israel would fold within a matter of days.

That's a good idea if we can also have a separate forum for Israeli propaganda apologists too.
