Those pesky Arabs / Palestinians refuse to recognize Israel, and refuse to sign peace treaties with them.

On the contrary

You know anything about Israeli politics?

Hard-line Israeli party proposes loyalty bill which would force Arabic community to swear allegiance to Jewish state


Israel's Arabic population would be forced to swear loyalty to the Jewish state or risk severe punishment, under new legislation proposals. An ultranationalist party headed by the Israeli foreign minister said today it has prepared a bill linking citizenship to an oath of allegiance.

One of MANY examples of legislation Israeli politicians try to push past Knesset.

You guys do understand that if PAlestine becomes real, and Hamas launches rockets, its going to fall under the category of Article 7 for the UN. Israel will be justified in defending its country from attacks by another country.

When it's convinent for you to cite UN resolutions in the benefit of Israel, you do so without question. How about you cite some others, for example UNSC Resolution 242.

And do YOU know, that if Palestine does become a member of the international community, they can ratify the ICC treaty and prosecute Israel for crimes against humanity and war crimes (considering Israel stays in """occupied territories""" after Palestine is recognized a member and continues its routine occupation procedures).

Care to point out where I said ISrael is a perfect angel?

I pointed out the issues the OP failed to address.

It takes 2 to tango...


What did I fail to address? You talking about it takes two to tango? Israel isn't a perfect angel?

So why don't we cut BOTH Israel and Palestine's funds? You said it yourself, Israel isn't a perfect angel, so why just take one sides funds?

You're the one being biased.

Well, when we are giving 500 million we have certain expectations of how that money is to be spent.


And we give $2,800,000,000 to Israel, and day after day AMERICAN politicians condemn Israeli settlements.

If you actually check Hamas and its beliefs you will find they are one in the same with the Nazis.


I'd rather compare the better armed/equipped/organized Israelis who have the palestinians living under their boots with the the better armed/equipped/organized Nazis who had the jews living under their boots.

And on the other hand, Palestinians who resist the Israeli forces can be compared with the jews who resisted the Nazis in the ghetto uprisings...

Same #, different players.

Nice distortion... What you are failing to take into account is the Palestinians are all about using any means they can to kill Israelis, up to and including the use of children.



As I said, Hamas and their merry band of morons are picking up where the Nazis left off. If that truth is too much to bear we can always disscuss Iran using school children, forcing them to hold hands and walk through fields in order to clear out minefields for their military to advance.

Israel is under constant threat by people around them who have absolutely no regard for life - period. When Hamas goes on record stating the death of innocent palestinians at their hands is a good thing, one has to wonder how far they are willing to go.

Hamas / Fatah / Iran / etc etc dont want peace, they want Israel removed from the map. Why should Israel support the creation of a state when the people who will be running that state dont recognize Israel and its right to exist?

Please explain how Israel is a roadblock to peace when its Hamas / Fatah / Iran / etc etc are on the constant offensive?

I have stated time and again Israel is not an angel. However Hamas / etc are not the disenfranchised oppressed people that others like to paint them as. Hamas oppresses their own people which goes ignored. Hamas attacks and kills their Fatah counterparts. I can keep going but you get the idea.

Thanks for replying.

Point is... the jews who suffered in Europe have absolutely NO business in the middle east considering those particular jews who formed israel have never lived in that part of the world. If they got roughed up in Europe... MAKE A HOME FOR THEM IN EUROPE... not in the middle east.


Israel is under constant threat by people around them who have absolutely no regard for life - period.

Yeah....and the heavily armed/equipped Nazis were under constant threat by a bunch of guys who DARED to rebel against them in the ghetto uprisings.
