• Would it not be more effective to simply change US foreign policy favouring Israel?

    In the light of Obama's recent address to the World about terrorism in the middle east, is this just a case of the President re-shuffling the same cards used before, but dealing them with new showmanship? Would it not be more efficient to go to the cause of the terrorism and remove the timber that fuels the fire so to speak? The 9/11... show more
    In the light of Obama's recent address to the World about terrorism in the middle east, is this just a case of the President re-shuffling the same cards used before, but dealing them with new showmanship? Would it not be more efficient to go to the cause of the terrorism and remove the timber that fuels the fire so to speak? The 9/11 attacks were as a result of the US's unwavering and unjust support of Israel, something kept from the public eye by the media. Surely Obama knows this. Why does he not go to the root of the problem? Allow Israel to be judged fairly in the UN courts of Justice rather than Vito-ing sanctions. By doing this, the voices of the people are heard. This is my opinion. What is yours?

The engine, nor radiator was damaged and i drove the car home the next day. I had a friend come over and look at it to tell me the damage and he said the chassy is bent which is costly to fix. I didnt ask, do i have to fix it? It is stable, only slightly damaged (but i'd have to get a new wing, bonnet, head light and bumper) so do i have to fix the chassy as well? Can i not just replace the stated above and drive on the road? Thanks, i think its clear if not i'll add details

Surely there must be something else? I know Saddam Hussein killed a lot of Iraqi civilians, but the west armed him and supplied him with intel during his war (which was encouraged by the west) with Iran. Since 2002 more Iraqis have died since the coalitions entry into Iraq than Saddam was ever held responsible for, and the country is in such a mess, economically, socially... So my question is, why did the US and UK (and poland etc) invade Iraq?

    http://news.antiwar.com/2009/01/12/israe... As a popular party with Israel’s large Arab minority, the Balad Party has been seen as a prime mover behind the nation’s domestic antiwar movement. Though officials have repeatedly warned them that “there is a limit to democracy” in Israel, this opposition party never seems to have fully learned its lesson. Yisrael Beitenu chairman Avigdor Lieberman said "The Balad Party’s stated goal is to “transform the state of Israel into a democracy for all its citizens, irrespective of national or ethnic identity,” a goal which makes it dangerously radical in a state which views its non-Jewish citizens as second-class in the best of times and traitors during most wars." Banning a party for calling for equal rights may fit with some Israeli politicians’ ideals of what a “Jewish state” should be, but with at least one journalist already arrested for violating the growing wartime censorship regime and minorities under growing threat from Israeli police for protesting government policies the ban of an opposition party for demanding equal rights for its constituents is likely to add to the growing concerns about Israel’s claims to be anything resembling a bastion of freedom in the Middle East. Opinions?

    Israel's claims that Iran wants to "wipe Israel off the map" were shown to be a fabrication of lies. Iran stopped its nuclear weapons program in 2003 for four years under UN suggestions, and the US intelligence has confirmed finding no evidence of a nuclear weapons program. It hasn't attacked a neighboring country in over 600 years. They have recently shown their scientific achievements by launching a satellite into space. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly expressed his goal of durable peace in the Middle east, and is a pro-democracy leader. So my question is, what is the US and Israel's obsession with Iran?

I don't know the exact details concerning the 6 Hamas fighters being shelled, but at the end of the day Hamas was inside of Gaza, they are a democratically elected government, why can they not walk about in their own state? And ok, if their intentions were to build a tunnel to kidnap a soldier, which is entirely possible, surely an arrest was more suitable than firing missiles into Gaza? And how can Israel now claim that the recent fighting is to stop Hamas rockets being fired into Israel?

    With the civilian death toll above 1,000 40% being women and children, as well as countless injured, who will be held responsible? I understand that the town of Sderot lives in fear of attack, but in a decade of missiles landing in the area 21 civilians have been killed. You can't invade a nation and then not expect a retaliation? The war crimes organisations have come together to charge Israel for are: Using powerful shells in civilian areas which the army knew would cause large numbers of innocent casualties; • Using banned weapons such as phosphorus bombs; • Holding Palestinian families as human shields; • Attacking medical facilities, including the killing of 12 ambulance men in marked vehicles; • Killing large numbers of police who had no military role. Please If you don't know the history of the conflict or only know what you have seen on TV then don't comment, i don't want to see "there was never such thing as Palestine" or any other stupid comments. Here's the link by the way: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jan... And this was published in 2005, showing that Israel's actions ain't new, they've been accused of war crimes before: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_... This was published in 2001: http://www.mediamonitors.net/francis7.ht... And also, under the Oslo agreement, the zone where Sderot lyes should be under Palestinian rule, therefore, and i'm not justifying Hamas' actions, but to a certain degree they are fighting for something the UN has declared should be theirs? And before anyone goes racial i'm a white british man of french herritage and a Christian. Everything i have said is a fact.
