Do not try and de-rail this thread on a single comment I stated. You have strayed off-topic.
This is not a thread discussing if the IDF should offer protection to Israeli settlers.
My point in saying what I did in regards to the settlers and the IDF is that if settlers are willing to provoke palestinians by attacking emergency workers then the settlers that did so do not deserve the protection that the IDF offers.
However this is not what the thread is about. Do not attempt to de-rail the thread from the main contention.
I agree with you that some of the posters I've seen so far spew hate and other crap... but I must believe that some posters who have a negative opinion are just misinformed... and that by showing facts that are objective, misinformed people can be informed and make their own decisions...

Please show me one hateful comment I've made. If I have made such a comment it was unintentional. If you are referring to me being misinformed, please point out where I am misinformed.
As for the USS Liberty, I have no information about it, and therefore cannot comment about it being an Israeli/US "false flag" or whatever... so I respect your opinion, but I can't comment on it much, sorry

Reliable sources. R-e-l-i-a-b-l-e !
You do know the meaning of that I hope.
“Electronic intifada”. Can it get any more hilarious on your part?
I do not condone any act of violence be it Israelis or any other.
I do hate it when people are clearly digging for stories in order
to put Jews in a bad light, be it a month old events or years old.
Then the recycle process begins, despite the fact it was either
discussed in the past, or no reliable sources brought.
This thread is all about propaganda and spewing hate.
Let's agree for argument's sake that you are correct - what is the motivation? what does the US or Israel gain from this?! (although this is off-topic at best...)
The USS Liberty, a US intelligence gathering ship, was steaming more than 10 miles off the coast of El Arish on June 8, 1967, the fourth day of the Six Day War, when at around 2 P.M. Israeli jets, responding to reports of shelling from the sea, attacked with cannon and napalm. Soon afterwards Israeli torpedo boats arrived at the scene and also attacked after first being fired upon by the Liberty.
