How Can The U.S. Support Israel When It Continues To Violate International Law?
USA needs to dump them and let them fend for themselves. Only then will USA regain its once good reputation.Over 1,452 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since September 29, 2000 and at least 6,430 Palestinians have been killed since September 29, 2000
Why are we letting them do this?
It's time we cut these guys loose.
124 Israeli children have been killed by Palestinians since 2000
1,084 Israelis have been killed Palestinians since 2000
During Fiscal Year 2009, the U.S. is providing Israel with at least $8.2 million per day in military aid and $0 in military aid to the Palestinians.Israel has been targeted by at least 65 UN resolutions and the Palestinians have been targeted by none. 1 Israeli is being held prisoner by Palestinians, while 5,935 Palestinians are currently imprisoned by Israel. 0 Israeli homes have been demolished by Palestinians and 24,813 Palestinian homes have been demolished by Israel since 1967.The Israeli unemployment rate is 6.4%, while the Palestinian unemployment in the West Bank is 16.5% and 40% in Gaza.Israel currently has 236 Jewish-only settlements and ‘outposts’ built on confiscated Palestinian land. Palestinians do not have any settlements on Israeli land.

I am an Israeli who left after my service in the I.D.F. I saw one of my fellow soldiers shoot a twelve year old Palestinian boy dead for no other reason than he was bored. He received no punishment for this. I can say hand on heart that the Israelis are the most cruel, racist people on earth. The incident I mention is not uncommon, that is why I left Israel and do not want to be associated with these criminals.
Incidentally the weapons these atrocities are being committed with are paid for by the U.S. tax payer.I'm sure the parents of the little boy would like to send you their thanks.
Two hours after the death of this boy two rockets were fired into Israel. This was headline news, but there was no mention of the murder of the little boy.

How many people have Palestinian militants killed? How many of their own people have they killed? Does launching unprovoked rocket attacks and blowing up civilians with suicide bombers violate international law? Does advocating holy war and genocide violate international law? Look it up and let us know.
Israel is the only thing looking like a democracy in the entire Middle East and it is an ally of the USA. America will stand with its allies. Also, the USA is "letting" this happen because the USA doesn't control the whole goddamned world and everyone in it: Get over yourself.
Additional, March 8:
Thanks for Googling a few stats for me; much better than answering any of my questions that you couldn't copy paste from someone else's website (critical reasoning fail). Feel free to keep Googling things like the number of Israeli suicide bombers who ambush Palestinian civilians or hijack/attempt to hijack Palestinian planes, number of Israeli hate groups and gov't officials who call for the destruction of Palestine and refuse to acknowledge Palestine's right to exist, number of times Israel sent little children with bombs to blow themselves up inside Palestine's borders, etc, etc, etc. At least when it's time to do the fighting Israel sends in the army, not a bunch of scared little kids... I wonder what your views on the last Crusades were.
If Palestine had better allies they'd be trying to secure a peaceful solution for all, not encourage hatred and martyrdom amongst someone else's population. If Palestine wanted to seem legitimate they'd stop electing hardline terrorist sympathizers to represent them in gov't affairs. Oh well, when you know the guy you're trying to kill is going to get the gears for whatever you do I guess legitimacy doesn't matter. Try expanding that critical spotlight of yours, Max, you might actually see more of the whole picture; then again, you weren't really asking a question because you just wanted an answer, were you? Have fun acting apologetic for terrorists and their sympathizers.

"Hitler's smear campaign was exclusively against Jews, but he had concealed the names of the Zionists who, with greatest brutality and disregard for the Jewish community, had planned the World Revolution and the foundation of the State of Israel. This is striking evidence that he worked together with the Zionists and that he was a first class liar, hypocrite and public traitor."
The rest is history.They are killing Women, children and stealing Palestinian land, Israel is an apartheid state and has broken the most UN resolutions.
(Freedom Research, June, 2009)
In the following document we will give an insight into the Jewish penetration of the Internet and also show the level of cooperation between leading Jewish Internet entrepreneurs and the racist Jewish Apartheid state of Israel.
The Jews - contrary to the "liberal" views they officially say they profess - in their suppressive acts practically demonstrate that they always seek to dominate the information flow, they don´t tolerate any dissent. It is just as when Israel says "Shalom" while Israel´s military at the very same time pounds its Arab neighbour states with bombs and missiles.
The Arabs have learnt the hard way the falsehood of these Jewish statements, it is now time for the rest of the non-Jewish world to get this right, and to see that the freedom of information on the Net is seriously threatened.

If Hamas (Palestinians), Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, Jordan, etc., would cease trying to exterminate Israel, there would be no reason for you to make such a claim.
Perhaps those groups and countries are the ones that need to be cut loose.

Israel is a 21st century nightmare, Israel really does control the USA and used the American Army to attack Iraq. Are you aware that the "Israel" of today is about 25 (TWENTY FIVE) times bigger than the Israel of 1947.. see the link
@Avram Yagael well said

you are very innocent in assuming that USA acts based on humanic factors like human rights , justice and others.
USA violate a lot of international laws in their wars and in their logistic and economic support to dictators along the arab world and latinoamerica years ago.

There is no such thing as international law. The Palestinians only have to stop terrorist attacks on
Israel, and things will improve. I lost all sympathy and patience with Palestine some years ago.

All palistinians have to do is stop lobbing rockets into Israel. If the palistinians would lay down their arms there would be peace. If Israel would lay down their arms there would be no Israel.

You seem to think that the casualty count demonstrates some kind of international law violation.
It does not.
When the PA used to pay children a few dollars a day to throw explosives at Israelis, many many children were killed or blew their own hands off by holding on to the explosives too long. And every one of those was a "palestinian child casualty." And the fault was the Palestinian Authority, not Israel.
When the PA and Hamas use comic books, children's tv, little league, summer camp, and schools to teach children that it is their religious duty to kill all Jews and that dying while doing so gets them (and a handful of handpicked friends/family) to heaven, it is not surprising that children as young as 11 have been killed while attempting to attack Israelis with guns, knives, and bombs.
Arab terrorists have used children to smuggle explosives through checkpoints. In at least one documented case, they attempted to use a child as an unwitting "suicide bomber." They told him he was just carrying contraband across the checkpoint but tried to set up bombs in his bags with a cellphone. Fortunately, the detonator failed.
Similarly, when you use a school as a launching pad for rocket attacks or have children stand next to armed combatants shooting at Israelis, when the Israelis shoot back, children will be harmed. It is a tragedy. But, the blame lay with the armed combatants using these children as human shields.
Here is some more info:Children terrorism:
Indoctrination and use of children as combatants: http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=844
The media portion includes video examples of using children: http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=845
PA child: Fatah Conference taught me to be a combatant and fight Israel
Hezbollah cartoon teaches children to attack Israelis and to seek death as martyrs
PA TV children’s song, martyrdom is sweet
Kid’s music video: fight Jews for mother’s honor
Hamas children’s tv: multiple examples of teaching children to hate and kill Jews
PA TV talking chick puppet promotes massacre with AK-47 to children
More on children’s tv and indoctrination here: They not only use children’s tv to indoctrinate children to hate and kill, they do so by frequently having children model the behaviors they express joy about and sing about how wonderful it will be to kill Jews and die while doing so.
This includes fafur examples. Farfur was a “mickey mouse” knock-off that taught children to hate and kill Jews. When Disney complained that it was copyright infringement, Arab tv replaced farfur with a new children’s character to teach hate. They told the children on tv that farfur was no longer on tv because the Jews murdered him and that children must avenge farfur’s death by killing Jews. E.g.,:
V Host: "Yes, our children friends, we lost our dearest friend, Farfur. Farfur became a Shahid (Martyr) while protecting his land."
The bear puppet host, Nassur, of a Hamas children's TV program used different words for “slaughter” to describe how to rid Israel of Jews.
First the bear explains that all Jews must be “erased from our land.” Later in the conversation he adds, "We want to slaughter them, Saraa, so they will be expelled from our land.” He repeats, “…We’ll have to [do it] by slaughter."
After two months, Farfour was beaten to death on the show by an Israeli interrogator. Nahoul, a larger-than-life bee, is now carrying his message.
"A lot of people in Palestine have died as martyrs, and lots of Palestinians hope to be martyrs," Saraa said of Farfour's demise. "This is one of the ends."
Asked if she hoped one day to be a martyr, Saraa instinctively nodded her head.
"Of course," Saraa said. "It's something to be proud of. Every Palestinian citizen hopes to be a martyr."
Saraa helps deliver similar messages to Palestinian children from a Hamas TV set filled with colorful numbers and pictures of kittens. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,2932%E2%80%A6
Here's another example of the sick sort of indoctrination terrorist groups give to children, courtesy of MEMRI. Note not only the extremely sick dehumanization of Jews (complete with Satanic pointy ears and blood drinking), and the absolute contempt for any idea of peace or cooperation. This is pure child abuse.
