What is your knowledge of Hamas? Terrorist groups work their agendas regardless of who sits in government. They smuggle weapons into Israel
through tunnels, they create bomb labs, and they train their young to be martyrs. They do these things no-matter who is ruling; as I said, they have
their own agenda. Israelis endure rocket attacks and when Israel responds, the attackers say please don't hurt us or they ask the world to feel
sorry for them.
Not one state, county or city in America would put up with what Israeli citizens have to contend with. The Middle East is a powder keg with a lit
fuse. Pretty soon Israel will get tired of dealing with the attacks and waiting for the world leaders to back them, and then you will see some real
military action. Israelis know how to fight.
Oh I agree with you , they sure do... better than anyone, including even the US. And Hamas...nasty free and fairly elected aren't they, in spite of
their reputation? I admit to a certain prejudice, it is completely unfair and I remind myself frequently of the decent and wonderful peace loving
souls among the Jews who do not deserve my slightest criticism and who are most likely better in all ways as humans on the planet, than I am. It
And I have in the past, like nearly everyone in the US taken the side of Israel in almost every argument but there comes a time when that gets old and
you say, hey our best shot at peace in this region was Menachem Begin and he was shot for even trying. There have been no real attempts to broker or
honor a peace since.
In addition to this I hate to admit I have a prejudice based on religious differences and I do not understand some evangelicals who ignore this
reality; if you do not know of Jesus Christ then you might be forgiven for not accepting His message. You cannot KNOW CHRIST and still deny Christian
instructions to FORGIVE your enemies. You cannot perpetuate hating them unto death and swear to also kill their children and pets to fulfill some old
testament prophecy. If you KNOW of Him and you still deliberately deny His place as The Father, to fulfill an agenda of hatred? I am not liking that
country so much.
Bringing up people who are worse is never a good way to justify bad behavior.
