What you think about Israel?
Do you think if Israel launches another attack on the Gaza Strip, would the US back up Gaza, or Israel? Also, would the us help Israel or Iran if they attacked Iran? Wouldn't that screw up everything? Could it create WW3? Sorry I am asking so many questions. I am a kid and don't much yet about this :)
Do you think they will since the operation in Iraq was kind of questioned?

Israel is a country in Western Asia located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Also adjacent are the West Bank to the east and Gaza Strip to the southwest. Israel is the world's only predominantly Jewish state with a population of about 7.4 million people, of which approximately 5.62 million are Jewish. The largest ethnic minority group is the segment denominated as Arab citizens of Israel, while minority religious groups include Muslims, Christians, Druze, Samaritans and others, most of which are found within the Arab segment.
The modern state of Israel has its historical and religious roots in the Biblical Land of Israel, a concept central to Judaism since ancient times, and the heartland of the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Following the birth of political Zionism in 1897 and the Balfour Declaration, the League of Nations granted the United Kingdom the British Mandate of Palestine after World War I, with responsibility for establishing "...such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions, and also for safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine, irrespective of race and religion..." In November 1947 United Nations decided on partition of Palestine into a Jewish state, an Arab state, and a UN-administered Jerusalem. Partition was accepted by Zionist leaders but rejected by Arab leaders leading to the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine. Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948 and neighboring Arab states attacked the next day. Since then, Israel has fought a series of wars with neighboring Arab states, and in consequence, Israel controls territories beyond those delineated in the 1949 Armistice Agreements. Some international borders remain in dispute, however Israel has signed peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, though efforts to resolve conflict with the Palestinians have so far only met with limited success.
Often called the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel is a representative democracy with a parliamentary system and universal suffrage. The Prime Minister serves as head of government and the Knesset serves as Israel's legislative body. In terms of nominal gross domestic product, the nation's economy is estimated as being the 44th-largest in the world. Israel ranks highest among Middle Eastern countries on the bases of human development, freedom of the press, and economic competitiveness. Jerusalem is the country's capital, seat of government, and largest city, while Israel's main financial center is Tel Aviv.

The US would support Israel if they launched an attack on Gaza, but only if Israel was attacked first.
I think the Obama administration though would tell Israel to limit the civilan casualties as much as they can. The US would probably not be very happy with an Israeli attack on Iran but America would absolutely help Israel if Iran went to war against Israel.
And yes this could lead to world war 3. If America and Israel attacks Iran, other muslim countries might join Irans side.

In response to Joe, the group Hamas may have launched rockets first in the conflict, but Israel was extremely wrong for its vicious overreaction, and killing of over 1,000 people, at least 400 of which were children. The number of Israeli casualties to Palestinian casualties were HIGHLY out of proportion.
And that is not the first time. The Israeli government has proven multiple times how extremely inconsiderate it can be. Remember the 2006 war that took place, it was the group that names itself Hezbollah against Israel. The staggering numbers are undeniably familiar--over 1,000 Lebanese were killed, and over 1,000 Palestinians were killed. The war in Lebanon lasted about 33 days, the one in Gaza about 22 days. Notice a coincidence?

The recent offensive by the IDF in the Gaza region was solely the result of non-stop attacks by Hamas militants and other islamic terrorists launching rockets at Israeli cities.
The question you should be asking is when will the US and other nations finally put together a unified effort/force to go after all islamic terrorists inflicting pain and suffering in nearly every nation around the world in order to kill all of the infidels.

The rationale of setting up a state with a Jewish majority is to furnish a risk-free haven for Jews, This is considering the fact that historical past has proven that Jews had been persecuted as a minority close to far and wide. To "reside among the persons of all countries" is a satisfactory suggestion, however sorry, been there, performed that. The notion of a Jewish majority isn't a racist one, this is a reaction to anti-Jewish racism. Why do not YOU "reside among the persons of all countries"? And why do not you wish to recognize that the Arabs began the violence towards the Jews in 1920?

Let's see now-the Palestinians, NOT THE Israelies, OWN the West Bank and gaza strips, yet the Israelies with the best trained and well armed army in the world, invades and occupies these strips, brutalizes,rapes, kills its owners, steals THEIR land to build dividing walls for Jewish ONLY settlements nad buffer zones, cuts off food water, power, medicine, and jobs to the owners of the land, all with the goal of annexing them, I would say that would be only a good start.The Palestinians are fighting for their lives and property-the Israelies REFUSE to let them keep either one.
The West Bank and Gaza strips belong to the Palestinians, not Israel. President Obama is attempting to broker the two state so the Israelies do not exterminate the Palestinians and annex the West Bank and Gaza strips.Here is the Israelies peace plan and it does NOT include Palestinians:

I guarantee you if Israel did to we, Americans, what she is doing to the Palestinians, we, Americans would shoot something many times stronger than home made missles into Israel and Israel would NOT be killing Americans and stealing our land. Israel, of course would call us terrorists. Incidentally, the Igun(now Likud) killed many times more Arabs than ALL the so called Arab terrorists killed Jews COMBINED.
