If you beleive in God please explain to me why you think America is Gods choosen people? Because you live in a piece of land called the USA? is the blood in your veins any different to anyone else? Did god play pin the tale on the world? which ever one I land on I will dub 'My chosen people'. Don't you realise almost EVERY country in the world is told they are the 'special people', the 'chosen ones'. When that view is taken you subconsciously look at every non American as 'not chosen', therefore inferior. So if every country is told that then...........!
Anyway, Israel does not originally belong to the Jews. The Jews were nomads, wondering from one place to the next.
Infact at one time they lived in Egypt, as scribes. They were very good scribes and in return Egypt offered them a home. Then 'Something' happened and Egypt kicked the Jews out.
The Jews then settled in whats called Israel. The natives didn't like them there, so began the fighting we see today.
The situation is so tangled and its Hundreds of years old. I can't see an end to it myself.
the jews were in servitude to the egyptians untill Moses led them out. They were not kicked out and they were not a nomadic tribe they had a homeland untill they were defeated in war by egypt and forcibly taken into sevitude.
The fact is the U.N. has become increasingly irellevant and wrong headed in the last few decades and I for one fail to see why the U.S. or our allies even bother to remain part of this potential despot.

The U.N. international court bowed under to political preesure from the arabs and thier supporters and stated that the Isreali security barrier is illegal. Now while i agree that the parts of the wall which infringe on palestinian terrority are, Those parts within Isreal's territory are not. The ICJ has basicly ruled that Isreal does not have the right to build a wall ON ITS OWN LAND?!?!?! What kind of madness is this? Isreal is surrounded by a group of people who have publicly stated theier fondest wish is to see thier entire nation wiped from the face of the earth and they dont have a right to protect themselves? The fact is the U.N. has become increasingly irellevant and wrong headed in the last few decades and I for one fail to see why the U.S. or our allies even bother to remain part of this potential despot.

it's irrelevant if the wall is on israel's land or not. israel has created a bandustan for the palestinians and creation of the wall condemns them to poverty, since they depend on travelling into israel for their jobs.
If Palestine is to ever become an independent and viable state, they must develop their own economy and infrastructure independent of Israel.
