    Of course, the relative sizes are backwards — Israel gets plenty of defense funding from yours truly, and has a number of nuclear bombs. Not that I like Iran or Syria, mind you, but if Israel weren’t denying democracy in their occupied lands, Iran and Syria would have a lot less legitimacy in their people’s eyes.

    It really doesn’t help that Israel keeps poking them or kicking Palestine.

    Yes, poor little Israel is all alone in the world…
    except for funding, military assistance and the backing of the USA. Let’s try to keep it real here.

    To all you irrational Israel haters – the reason why Israel gets funding (which I, as an American with Israeli connection, oppose) is b/c they are our extensions and the peace-keepers in the middle-east. Yeah, Israel has nukes, but they’re not threatening to “wipe Iran off the map”. Same thing can’t be said for Iran… Get a brain, guys. Israel is the mirror image of the U.S. in the middle east.

    It was “Red” who gave the wolf a bad reputation, then got the woodsman to come in and kill him for her on trumped up charges, something to think about.

    Three small things to keep in mind. A nut job about 70 years tried to wipe an entire people from the face of the earth. People running some of the countries in the Middle East ( Iran and Syria come to mind) would like to finish the job. Israel (Jews) aren’t interested in killing all of the people that are in the two countries listed above.

    Israel is a tiny Jewish nation, the only democracy in the Middle East, and one of the world’s leaders in science, technology, and medicine. It is surrounded by hostile Islamic religious dictatorships of one ilk or another that hate it because the Koran tells them to hate Jews as well as the “infidels” of all other religions. They have tried to destroy Israel ever since it was created by the U.N. in an area that has historically been a Hebrew homeland and must continue to be. Israel deserves the support and help of every freedom-loving nation in the world.

    In terms of might, money, and backing from others, Israel is much bigger than either Iran or Syria, the latter of which is busy killing its own people even faster than Israel kills Palestinians.

    “It is surrounded by hostile Islamic religious dictatorships of one ilk or another that hate it because the Koran tells them to hate Jews as well as the “infidels” of all other religions.”

    Which is of course why during the inquisition when Christians were killing Jews because they interpreted the Bible as telling them to hate Jews and infidels of all other religions… The Islamic countries took in the Jews and provided them with a safe place to live.

    Let’s let up on the rhetoric that’s designed to foment hatred, shall we? Otherwise we might seem to be hypocrites.

    These rockets rarely kill anyone and are largely ineffective. I agree that these kinds of attacks should stop but settlements in the west bank must be removed. They run completely counter to any concept of Palestinian identity and represent something that could be described as non-violent ethnic cleansing in that they represent forced relocation.

    the whole Arab spring is about only one thing—The take over of allll of Africa and the middle east plus continue to spread the Muslim Brotherhood to as much of the world as they can—this is the reality of the threat we face!
