    Israel has had a lot of influence in this country since Harry Truman lobbied the UN to recognize Israel in 1948. Truman wanted the Jewish votes he'd get for doing that. Since that time, politicians have counted on the votes they get for supporting Israel, and the large amounts of money they get in terms of donations from groups like AIPAC, which is the biggest lobby for Israel. In the last 30 years, there has been a growth of a movement called neoconservatism. The people in this movement have dedicated themselves to trying to get the US to eliminate Israel's enemies. Part of the reason for the invasion of Iraq was the goal of the neocons to occupy Iraq in order to set up a potential war with Iran. One reason a war against Iran is supported here concerns the Christian groups that support Zionism. They believe that a war in the Middle East will signal the return of Jesus and the judgement day. Is it fair? Nope.

    The average American is getting tired to hear biased politicians and lobbyists alike preferring Israel's well being over America's.

    The US went to war with Iraq because of Israel. That should be the end - after thousands of dead and wounded Americans and trillions of dollars spent on warfare and "support" of Israel. War must not be this one-sided act, ignoring all the pain and destruction it creates.

    It's republicans, not America as a whole that has this goal. As they create tax benefits for the rich, and strangle the lower and middle class, they make sure they keep less fortunate people occupied by sending them to war.

    "According to the Bible, before the Messiah can return, three great events must occur: the nation of Israel must be restored; Jerusalem must be a Jewish city; and the Temple, the center of worship and sacrifice in the ancient Jewish world, which was destroyed by Romans in 70 A.D., must be rebuilt."
