Our politicians are a weak corrupt soulless lot who sold us all out long ago. Glad to see John Mearsheimer tell it like it is.

Enjoy more news you wont see on tv in America

If the US gives in to the pressure from Israel then they will only continue to encourage the permanent state of war that isn't good for anyone. The Israelis have gone full circle and become the perpetrators that they were once victims of. this is all to common when cooler heads don't prevail.

There are moderates on both sides including John Mearsheimer that could come to a reasonable way to address this problem if they had a chance.

What exactly did Israel perpetrate? Didn't you hear about the Israeli family that got butchered by Palestinian terrorists because they were Israeli? Seems to be a damn good reason for Israel's action of late.

Until the United States pulls the plug on the handout$, this is all smoke, mirrors and bad acting (just like 911). Money talks and bullfrog doesn't hop...he walks...very slowly. This Israeli issue is nothing more than a distraction to all the other gross injustices being perpetrated around the planet. Look how many millions of people get slaughtered in Africa while the disreputable, controlled and traitorous media distracts us with political trash talk.

A five year old can understand Netanyahu has no intention of giving up ANY land including the west bank or gaza. He sees that land as the part of the mission left undone. His predecessors did not go far enough in 67 as far as he's concerned.

He doesn't care what Obama thinks and gave him the finger in public. What's Obama going to do any different than Bush or Clinton?

What that tells me is BB wants another fight. He wont be satisfied until the new temple is going up on the dome of the rock He's confident he can win and thinks his "big brother" is going to back him up when the missiles start flying. Doesn't that say something about the perceived power of the Israeli lobby? What's it say about BB's respect for Arabs?

It's insanity. It's a recipe for armagedon. The average Palestinian wants what the average Israeli wants which is the same as most human beings; They want to live in a world where it's possible to raise a family with the hope that the children may do better than the parents.

The politicians must be stopped. Religious extremists on all sides must be stopped. We can all focus our prayers on Israel and Palestine before it's too late to talk.

Israeli Lobby strength is merely an illusion designed to keep other nations under the thumb of them, reality is that their lobby is only as big as we allow them.

Israel has been maintaining a constant state of conflict against the Palestinians for decades; their have been atrocities on both sides. this goes back to the creation of Israel and WWII. the Jewish people had legitimate complaints against the Nazi's of course and other rabid anti-semites including some of the most powerful Arabs; however they are primarily taking out on the least powerful Palestinians who had nothing to do with the Holocaust.

Neither the Palestinians nor the Lebanese were responsible for the Holocaust yet they're the primary target for Israel and this is maintaining a constant state of war.

Excuse the late reply; I don't always check back for comments.

In case you missed the boat. The true issue is why are there foreign countries and foreign citizens setting the policy and laws regarding American people. Why are foreign interests over ridding the taxpayers interests. If you are an american are you not getting tired of having people take your and run your life? Only to find out it is people taking your money and running your life not even in the US let alone citizens of the US.

Why are foreign countries and foreign citizens attempting to set policy and laws regarding Israel and its people? They are a sovereign nation just like we are, but some people don't seem to have any problem that America, and other nations, are telling them what to do.
