Why does the USA ignore the terror of Israel?
Yep, I can't stand the idea of the blind support of Israel. They have been riding a so called "moral highground" for a long time. It disgusts me how they, of all people, should know where intolerance leads, yet they continue to abuse the palestinians and deny many of them their basic human rights. It absolutly sickens me. I agree that they should be left to fight their own battles. Our generations should not be penalized for the actions of others in history. The biblical guilt that the christian nations seem to labor under is ridiculous. There is a big bloc of christian fundamentalists that seem to think that Israel is linked to biblical prophecy in the end times. For some reason, because of this as well as the guilt...the western "christian" leaders seem to fell that in order to have god's blessing, they must protect Israel at all costs.
I can't stand it!
Jo and will - You do have a point. That's the way I see it as far as letting them take care of their own problems and not getting caught up in the zionist movement. I was watching the msnbc and they had an israelie and a palestinian spokes person on and I thought the palestinian made some sence when he reminded people that the palestinians don't even have an army yet are continually assaulted by the Israelie army .It's one thing to go after people that are involved with the suicide bombing and it's another when you ruthelessly attack people simply because they are palestinian. IMO . I think maybe they should devinde the whole region in half like east and west germany . The US has tried repeatedly to help these too adversaries come to a peace agreement but the jews refused to give up the land required to keep the palestinians in check. What the jews want is for the US to back their ethnic clensing campaign I think anyway.
Some people have made the statement that the US is a part of israel. Sharon claimed as much on radio. Jewish orgs in the us always heavily fund senators and presidential campaigns. From where do the orgs get their money? Why from american taxpayers. Then the govt gives billions (3 billion going up to perhaps 12 billion) to israel. Israel funnels some of it back to jewish orgs in the states. Slick, eh?
Another reason is the pro israel jews in top govt positions around bush:
Zionists around bush

that Zionist heavyweight and blameless "patriot," who's just been named (November 2002) to head the committee empanelled to find out (are you ready for this?) whether the U.S. was remiss in not anticipating the September 11th tragedy, and to unearth the causes for the attack!One of many Pentagon Advisors, Kissinger sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle.

If you dig deeper, you will find more.
Then there is the media ownership by jews. And then there is......
1881-1924 2.5 million Jews flee persecution in Eastern European.
Many migrate to the United States, fewer migrate to Palestine, which is then ruled by the Ottoman Turkish Empire.
Arab riots of 1921, of which the Haycraft Commission declared was instigated by Arabs, and as Arabs were the majority, inflicted the most casualties. 47 Jews killed with 140 wounded.
1922 League of Nations (precursor to the United Nations) and the U.S. Congress, respectively, endorse Balfour declaration promising a Jewish state in Palestine. In 1923, Britain alters the size of the promised Jewish homeland.
1929, the Hebron massacre, 67 Jews murdered
1936, the British Peel Commission concluded that Arab-Jewish coexistence was impossible and recommended partitioning Palestine into Jewish and Arab areas. The Jews accepted the principle of partition while the Arabs rejected it. From 1936-1939, the Arabs in Palestine revolted against British rule.
1939, Britain issues White Paper reneging on its promise, as expressed in the Balfour declaration, for a Jewish state in Palestine. It was also Great Britain's change in policy toward Palestine, especially in the White Paper, that disallowed millions of European Jews unable to escape from Nazi-occupied Europe to Palestine.
1933 – 1945, The Holocaust; Arab states and leaders join with Nazi Germany.
1948, Creation of the State of Israel. United States is the first country to recognize the newly reestablished Jewish state. Immediately, five Arab armies invade fledgling state.
Nearly 750,000 Jews living in Arab countries are persecuted and nearly all are forced to flee to Israel, where they are accepted.
With virtually no protest from Palestinian Arabs or international observers, Arab countries occupy lands reserved for a Palestinian state.
We also have the 1956 Sinai War, the 1967 Six Day War, and the 1973 Yom Kippur War, not to mention the murder of the entire Israeli Olympic team in 1972 in Munich Germany by Arabs and several artillery shellings from Arabs prior to the Yom Kippur War and numerous suicide bombings since.
While I don’t see Israel as entirely innocent in all respects, I can understand their dismay with the Arabs and much of the world. Please note, it isn’t the Jews who have vowed to rid the region of Arabs, but Arabs who have vowed to do that to Jews.
How quickly the oppressed become oppressors. The palestinians have no tanks, helicopters or jet fighters. The idf gets the best weapons mostly for free from your govt. Then they improve them. The better to kill or wound kids w stones, pregnant women, old men.
U.S. Secretary Colin Powell pleaded with the Palestinians to issue some form of denunciation. Arafat complained that only the Palestinian side is ever required to denounce terror. Predictably, the Palestinian denunciation later mumbles that they "deplore the murder of civilians on both sides." Perhaps the Palestinians have a point, and so to set the record straight, I do hereby denounce the following in the name of the Jewish People: > > > > > >1. All Jewish suicide bombers who have ever acted against Arabs. > > >2. All Arab buses blown up by Jews. > > >3. All Arab pizza parlors, malls, discotheques and restaurants destroyed by Jewish terrorists. > > >4. All airplanes hijacked by Jews since 1903. > > >5. All Ramadan feasts targeted by Jewish bombs. > > >6. All Arabs lynched in Israeli cities; all Arab Olympic athletes murdered by Jews; all Arab embassies bombed by Jews. > > >7. All mosques, cemeteries and religious schools fire bombed or desecrated by Jews in North Africa, France, Belgium, Germany, England or any other country. > > >8. The destruction of American military, governmental and civilian institutions in Kenya, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Yemen - along with the murder of U.S. Marines and diplomatic personnel. > > >9. All Jewish school books which claim that Arabs poison wells, use Christian blood to bake pita, control world finance, and murdered Jesus; > > >or that Arab elders meet secretly to plot a world takeover. > > >10. And I am particularly ashamed at the way my fellow Jews attacked the World Trade Center, Pentagon and civilian aircraft on September 11, and danced in the streets to celebrate the act.
Really without taking sides on this I think both sides are F*****. They are still fighting a 4 thousand year old war because some stupid old book told them to.
I'm not afraid of a Jew killing me in the street. Maybe charging me too much for a bagel, but not killing me. Arabs, well, I have to look twice. sorry. The cause might have been just, once, but the methods of the Palestinian struggle have ruined any chances that I'd support them.
The Arabian world has been harassing Europe since before the Crusades. In fact, Saracen raiding parties were the reason the Crusades were first launched! They've hated us from the beginning, and use methods that go beyond basic struggle. Screw 'em.
Europe is full of anti-Semitic pigs it always has been it always will be. Honestly, I hope we pull all of our troop’s home from everywhere when this is over and let the euro-trash deal with their own problems, they deserve it. Terry
