I guess we agree to disagree.
I stand behind Israel 100%.
I was - very - impressed with Netanyahu when he spelled out and lectured Obama
about the simple truths in the middle east.
He made Obama look like a small 10 year old.
Fair enough, friend. I appreciate the well-mannered discourse and can respect your opinions even if I can't support them.
In my ideal world, where Israel is a righteous nation and is not causing harm to others or using their closest ally to accomplish their ends while
also angling against them (seriously, it always blows my mind - check out Mossad's spying around the world and the rings we've found here at home),
I could understand firm support even though I would not approve of giving them such undo respect and assistance.
I have to look through the eyes of history as well, though, and it's a fact that for most of history, there have not been serious issues between us
and them, or even they and the jews. All our differences now are primarily politcal/foreign policy-related in nature and have really only seen the
escalation and tension we have now in the last 70 years or so - when Israel was reborn as a nation and began imposing inequality and control on the
palestinians. The main root of the issue is that they're seeing as cruel occupiers - without that, the fanatical groups would fade to the background
as they were shouted down by majority moderate opinions...but all our actions keeping giving them the fire to stay relevant.
Anyhow, thanks again and be blessed.
