There is so much disinformation and flat out wrong information in this thread - but that is what I have come to expect in every thread relating to Israel. I would think most people here on ATS would have their eyes more open and not believe everything they see/hear from the MSM - And even when their reports are close to accurate, it is a tiny fraction of what really happens here.

Not even close..
There are more Jews living in the US than even Israel.

Metropolitan Tel Aviv, with 2.5 million Jews, is the world's largest Jewish city. It is followed by New York, with 1.9 million, Haifa 655,000, Los Angeles 621,000, Jerusalem 570,000, and southeast Florida 514,000.

Click the link for a much more detailed breakdown. Iran doesn't even make the top 12 with their 8756 Jews...

What are they supposed to do!!!!???? Just twiddle their thumbs and make cotton candy??

What would you do??

The Israel hatred at this website is deplorable.

so some casualties and infrastructure damage makes it ok for israel to commit genocide?

I'm getting really tired of people tossing the G word around - It just isn't happening, or Israel really sucks at it. I think your definition of genocide and mine differ by quite a lot.. Lets consult Mr. Webster, a well respected definer of words:

Definition of GENOCIDE : the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group


If Israel wanted to commit genocide, they could EASILY do it.

And for those that try to downplay the danger of rockets coming out of Gaza, let me relay my personal experiences with them. I was in my apartment on the top floor (13th), air raid sirens went off, so my wife and I went into the safe room (steel door, steel reinforced concrete with a 1" steel plate that slides in front of the window). About 30 seconds later we heard and FELT the explosion which we later found out was a couple of MILES away... Not too long after that, a couple of women were driving in a car and hit by a rocket - both dead.

Yes, they are unguided, but the terrorists (I refuse to call them freedom fighters - more on that later) have their system down to get them close to the various cities. Some people call them fireworks... Fireworks have a few ounces of gunpowder or something similar - these rockets can have up to 100 pounds of high explosive!
Anyone who thinks that 20 - 100 lbs of high explosive won't ruin your day, is a fool. If one of these rockets lands near you, it's bad, m'kay?

Imagine these events relocated to some US border town - What would you do if your neighbors were tossing 100lbs of explosives in your general direction? I would expect and DEMAND that the military do something about it! I think most people would. I'm surprised some Israeli's aren't building their own rockets to launch back...

Luckily the city I live in has Iron Dome and the terrorists know they have a very small chance of getting past it. As a result there have been very few rockets fired at ME lately - yes, I take it personally when terrorists try to kill me...

Isn't it interesting that the line between "freedom fighter" and "terrorist" is so thin?

I think the world agrees that the French Resistance were justified in bombing, killing and pushing out their occupying Nazis in WW2, yet we have the same situation here with Zionists occupying Palestine and stealing their land from them and Hamas are called "terrorists".

Nazi's were a military target, not the innocent civilians that Hamas targets. If Hamas wants to claim the title of freedom fighter, then they need to stop targeting innocent civilians. But then there's that pesky little detail of how they came to power - shooting their political opponents in the legs and throwing them off the nearest building. "If you don't support us, this is what happens to you". Bet you didn't hear about that in the MSM.

Most people ignore, forget, or just didn't know, that the border with Gaza used to be much more open and many Palestinians used to have good paying jobs in Israel. Then suicide bombers started attacking buses, restaurants, nights clubs, etc. Israel closed the borders, and guess what? The bombings stopped. Seems pretty simple to me - neighbors dog craps in your yard, you build a fence, no more dog crap. No, I'm not calling Palestinians dogs - I'm sure there are some very nice Palestinians that want nothing to do with the violence. Unfortunately, they can't or won't do anything about the extremists in power.

Also, why doesn't anyone vilify Egypt for keeping their border with Gaza closed? Why do YOU think they keep that border closed?

Most of the Arab world doesn't really care about the Palestinians. If they did, why don't they say, "Come to my country brother, we'll take you in"? There are close to 1 billion Muslims living in Middle Eastern countries - they could easily absorb the 2 - 4 million Palestinians (Gaza and West Bank combined).
The Palestinians are just a tool to be used against Israel to try and make them look bad. They fund the terrorists in Gaza to fight a proxy war against Israel.

I could say a lot more, but I gotta get back to work...

Words mean stuff. Learn why the ROMANS called it Palestine. The "Palestine" of today never existed before 1967.

Oh, and to your comment about "nobody particularly hates Israel"? You haven't been on ATS much, have you?

All this being said, I actually hope a nation called Palestine comes into existence. Then when they will have to live all on their own and learn to play the game like big boys and girls. And when, not if, they start up their little fits and fire rockets into another nation, they'll be crushed into glass.

No one would ever do that to America. The people that tried ... Has suffered close to 300,000 dead men. Let me know when Israel grows some balls and stops letting people shoot missiles into their cities.

Israel will always be a burden, however, hiding in bunkers is bull. Get up, and attack. Don't appease your enemies, kill them, or make them live in fear and when I say enemies, I mean people trying to kill you.

That little issue you guys have going on at the Temple Mount is a disgrace to democracy.


Do not get me wrong, I support Israel, and not just because Yeshua tells me too. I support them because they are a democracy standing up against tyranny.

However, lately, you guys are screaming give me safety for my freedoms ....

By the way, Egypt's border with Gaza isn't closed. They have tunnels. Which Egypt permits to stay open, and uses it themselves. Israel doesn't have the balls to blow the tunnels on Egypt's side into oblivion. Which aggravates the hell out of me.

Ok so the Europeans should also go back from the Americas?

If Israel really wanted peace they would stop the settlement building.

Instead they are speeding it up.

If there is war there are no winners only losers and a whole lot of mess to clean up I am South african and while we do not have such a perfect track record when it comes to other races we are finding our way now slowly but it takes time to heal old wounds but when the dust has settled in the Middle East yr all welcome to come to South Africa and have a barbie and some drinks I'm buying.... I think we all need a drink and a chill out....

Let's cut off Egypt first please. Over a billion, that's BILLION each year, to a country with a new government that's trying to kill us (the West). They will soon use this money to pull down the pyramids and the Sphinx ( It's crazy. We are giving money directly to the royal family in order to keep them in power, which it is only a matter of time before they are going to jump a private jet to Sweden.

I am confused as to what Israel's beef is with Syria at all. Did Syria, as a nation, attack Israel? If not, who did? Surely, Saudi Arabia did not attack the U.S. eventhough 9 hijackers on 9/11 were from there. Oh, and as for Iraq, who knows?!
Anyway, with Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Lybia, Afghanistan going to hell, the U.S. will have plenty to worry about.

Killing and defeating countries in the Middle East is not a problem. It's how do we not kill so many people, and cause a collapse of civilization in the regions.

The easy part for America is killing. The hard part is not killing and conquering.

So ..

Right.... Obvious evidence of a crime but people button their lip so as to not offend anyone.

That's why I'm afraid that if they do get smacked down, they are going to get smacked down hard and without much ado. It's not going to be discussed, it's just going to happen. I'm shocked it hasn't happened already so maybe it won't but if it comes it's going to be hard.

We know this instigation is criminal and we are no stranger to the cocky self righteous attitude with which it is done and the childish lies to cover it up like a dangerous overgrown aggressive toddler. It's sickening but it appears they are going to push the line as far as they can because making it's people into victims only helps their plight. They care nothing about "people" they care only about their own egos.... just like silly acting mobsters that think they are cool. Sociopaths megalomaniacs dragging the US down with their delusion of grandeur.

This is one of the biggest shames in human history.
I don't know how their "elections" work but there is something seriously wrong with the process.... obviously, but we totally expect that from Israel and just shake our heads.

I am going to be SO MAD if we send people over to help them kill people. Have we done that yet!?? OOOOHHH, I will be so infuriated.

This is insanity. I tell you what, Israel must have some serious dirt on somebody somewhere, or somebody must have some serious dirt on it's leaders.

Other than the Israel leaders being elite mind control puppets what could the deal possibly be?

I mean we already know their motive is insane but I suspect there is a very specific reason we put up with this crap.

I tend to think that some people are so aware of just how bad Israeli leaders are hated, that if we don't support them in the public eye... they're dead. We are kind of obligated on the surface to continue to say we back Israel but that country could be decimated in a very short period of time but no one takes the first swing because powerful countries will come to it's aid. The minute we say "piss off Israel, we're not fighting your war" it's game over. They will get pounced so fast heads would be spinning.

Look at how they are abusing that as much as they can!

Do they have no common sense? Do they not understand what kind of position they are putting their protectors in?

They should be arrested before they get more people killed because that is the only way it will settle down... seeing as how it is them who are throwing fuel in the fire. They are a danger to their own people and that is a crime against humanity.

Not only should we see it as though we should not instigate anyone else into bombing Israel because that call appears to be largely on us, but we have a responsibility to do something about how their abusive position effects us and effects our own security. If this continues and a large attack takes place it will even be more of our fault for not peacefully and diplomatically addressing the offensive element in this problem and that is the Israeli leaders.

His country has missles lobed at it and is surrounded by countries who want to destroy Israel. What part of this do you have a problem with.

Could it be that Israel is spreading outside of its borders on stolen land and shows no sign of stopping .
Could it be because they have slaughtered tens or maybe hundreds of thousands of innocent people to achieve their aims .
Could it be their history of aggression in the region .
Could it be their total disregard for international law .
All of the above I have a problem with !

How many people have been killed by these "missiles" being "lobed" at Israel and how many innocent people will be killed by Israel in the disproportionate response that will probably be launched .

In my view Netanyahu is a war criminal just as Ariel Sharon was , the use of white phosphorus in civilian areas of the Gaza strip just one charge he should be indited with but there are many more to chose from ......

Mexico attacks America with mortars and rockets .

We attacked Mexico and took Texas , California, Nevada,Utah,Colorado ,New Mexico and Arizona . We killed off many thousands of Indians who owned the rest of America . What if they attacked us back . These same little minded people who have been basking Israel would be screaming for war .One mortar explodes in your neighborhood and threatens your families lives the shoe would be on the other foot .
Israel is under a real threat of war from a bunch of religious idiots . They have the right to defend themselves . It makes me sick to think my fellow Americans have forgotten the history of this country and are such girly guys about someone standing up for their rights . I don't think I could depend on such for the freedom of America .
