    The nation of Israel was formed by terrorists - the Irgun Gang and the Stern Gang - as they were called. They perpetrated terrorist attacks against the British and basically took the region by force.

    Most Americans are wholly unaware of this - particularly Christian Americans who mistakenly believe every Jew is a Hebrew - when the truth is just the opposite. The Jews primarily came from Eastern Europe (near the Caucasus Mtns.) and have no more claim on the Holy Land than I do.

    The Israeli terrorists moved in more of their kind without any international sanction until the deed was already done. Then the terrorism against the local inhabitants started in earnest - and this included against the native Hebrews who had no real problems with their Arab neighbors before the Jewish invasion. The acts of terror against the local populations have continued to this day. But because the American media is controlled by Jewish interests, Americans are never told the other part of the story. The part about ultra-orthodox Jewish sects moving into designated Palestinian sectors against Israeli law - performing acts of terrorism - beatings, store burnings and even murders - while the Israeli government turns a blind eye to these acts of expansionist terrorism.

    When the Palestinians try to protect themselves from these wanton acts of terrorism, the Jews in the American Media start painting the picture of all those Arabs going against Israel for no reason at all - which is a blatant lie.

    Israeli prisons are full of Arabs. Many of these people have done nothing more than be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or voice dissent against Israeli government policies. Granted, there are some who are rightly imprisoned, but few Americans are aware of the fact that the Israelis detain people for years - sometimes they just disappear - and there is no rule of law behind these abductions. They just do it because they can.

    Contrary to romantic literature, Might does not make Right, and the acts of the Israeli government prove that out. We will never have peace in the region so long as Israel perpetrates outlaw acts and is accountable to no one. I think there is no country on earth more guilty of violating and sneering at more UN resolutions than Israel. Wake up America. We are not on the side of right by continually and blindly backing Israel and its policies. It is not a democracy, it is a Marxist-influenced Political Zionist scam, and US tax dollars are paying for it. Stop foreign aid to Israel.

    I am not an Arab, nor do I sympathize with terrorists of any kind. But Americans should work to inform themselves about what is really happening in the region and why we have had so much trouble since the establishment of Israel. The Arabs were our allies against the Axis powers, and it was the British who reneged on their promises to the Arab nations. Is it any wonder they have a beef against the west? Read your history!

    The history of the country of the people if Israel of course is as ancient as the Biblical account or Jews being forced out of what is modern Israel and Palestine. The British Government established Israel as a place for dispossessed Jews to have a homeland. This resulted in terrorism from Israelis and Palestinians because of the forced establishment of Israel by an outside power. Attacks on the British and between rival groups finally drove the British Army to abandon the region.

    Israel has a very powerful group of friends in the United States that lobby on Israels behalf. There is also the fact that Israel is a democratic country with a constitution and laws like in the west who are supported by U.S. aid both in money and military hardware. etc.

    Most of the activity in the area is not classic terrorism but is actually a form of gorilla warfare not unlike other conflicts where there is an inbalance of power.

    The education of a big part of the people in this country is very poor. Many of the upcountry People follow their "Fuhrer" Bush.

    They don't understand that Bush and his Team have black hearts and give a f**k about the people as long as they make their own money. This includes extremly dangerous persons like Cheney and Rumsfield.

    The Germans had a while ago a similar Trio which was in Power.

    No wonder that the whole world hates the USA now. I hope that it normalises when Bush is gone.

    Germans are not allowed to put critic on the politic of Israel because it is always called anitsemitism. I don't understand why it is Antisemitism when I don't agree with this agressve Politic of a country that kills regulary people.

    There is terrorism and there is warfare. They are not the same thing. There are rules of warfare and good reasons for them. For example dressing up like a civilian, strapping on a bomb, and blowing yourself up in a pizza joint killing a bunch of unarmed teenagers is terrorism and is outside the rules of warfare.

    Where as putting on a uniform that designates you as a combatant, climbing into an airplane which is clearly marked as a military plane, which just happens to be loaded with explosives, and crashing it onto the deck of a warship, is not terrorism.

    The difference is not only that one is a legitimate military target and the other is not. But that disguising a combatant as a non-combatant transforms the entire civilian population into legitimate military targets. You can't break the rules without consequences. Sadly, the civilian population of nations that harbor terrorist have allowed the terrorist to make targets of them. That's too bad but they don't turn over the terrorist then they are harboring them and the blood of the terrorist victims is on their hands as well.

    Not all Americans support Israel at all. But the Israelis have strong support in the US government. Don't confuse what the government does with what the people want. They are often quite different. And many people choose not to think for themselves and just believe any nonsense their government tells them. That is exactly how we got into Iraq.

    Not all Israelis are terrorists and support terrorism! So, America isn't supporting terrorism! If your asking why America is "helping" a country that has terrorists--a country that "did the U.S. wrong"? That is because we are hoping that if we help them then they will not be our "enemies" anymore...keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer...

    Israel is defending itself. Their enemies have dedicated themselves to wiping them off the map

    Read Genesis Chapter 3 as follows

    14 The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, "Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring [a] forever. 16 I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. 17 Go, walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you."

    Israel is a reasonably free country in an ocean of dictatorships. Those dictatorships launce many rockets into Israel, every day. They send suicide bombers in too. If you can't easily differentiate Israel's defensive actions from the various Islamic-fascists threats & actions, nothing anybody says will likely sink in.

    When you start seeing hand grenades blowing up in your local mall, compliments of these hoodlums, perhaps you'll understand.

    Israel is not terrorists at all it is just their stategy of war. In the old testament God told them to destroy whole cities even the women and children. So they do the same thing today. When America turns its back from Israel we will fall.

    Israel is not arming it's civilians in civilian clothes and strapping bombs to children and dogs and then blow up buses with kids in them. That's terrorism. Israel is defending itself with a UNIFORMED (big difference under geneva) army.

    The Palestinians fired missiles at Israel. The Palestinians have kidnapped Israeli soldiers. What in all that is holy do you think they should do? " Ohhhhhh poor Palestinians, if we would just give them back their terrorist we have captured, all will be wonderful". If the Palestinians can dish it out, they need to be able learn to take it.
