    We should tell Pakistan to Pack-it-in.

    Neither Israel nor Palestine is going to disappear. These two are going to have to live together for the foreseeable future.

    You want Israel wiped out altogether? Again? Or do you want a Greater Israel where a Jewish minority perpetually rules a Muslim majority who are denied equal participation in their country’s government on the basis of their ethnicity/religion?

    Obama was merely stating the obvious.

    But the obvious from Obama’s mouth – heck even when it’s ideas that Republicans had formerly put forward – is suddenly treasonous communism.

    With friends like Pakistan who needs enemies?

    On the other hand, how would the United States react if French commando helicopters flew into New York and attacked a farm outside of West Point, killing a terrorist who had attacked France, telling the world that they didn’t inform the US government they were coming because they didn’t trust elements of the US government who might tip off the terrorist? How about if we found that certain American citizens were the paid agents of France who provided the information necessary for making the raid? Think we would simply congratulate the French for a job well done?

    The Pakis were wrong to arrest these guys. Let’s hope it is all gave-saving show and in the end the informants are released.

    But why do some chest-thumpers seem to think that the US is the only nation that is permitted to have national pride or be jealous of its sovereignty? That the US can do whatever it damn well pleases and anyone who even complains about our highhandedness must be evil?

    The Pakis were perfectly justified in complaining about the manner in which we got rid of Bin Laden. And we were perfectly justified in ignoring their complaints.

    ^Doughfoot, there is one major flaw in your logic: The French couldn’t find their way out of their own back yard.

    Shouldn’t those five get the 25 million reward. They sure could use it to buy their way free.

    @Conservatives Are Liars

    Do you even know what the 1967 borders were. Try to understand this. It was 9 miles across. Dallas Ft. Worth Airport is wider.

    Point of fact and this is a valid point no terrorist in France killed three thousands people on their soil. Iran is getting nukes other rouge nations are developing Nukes it is time to decide what side we are all on.

    @Darkforce – The 1967 “borders” were not borders but an armistice line where Israel was able to stop Jordan in 1948. That’s right, if anyone can claim a right to the land of the West Bank it is Jordan. Nobody complained when Jordan "occupied the West Bank. The Palestinians did not cry for an independent state until Israel won the West Bank when Jordan attacked in 1967.

    If you want to praise Obama at least get the terms right. He purposely did not use the term “border”.

    Muslims view non-muslims as dhimi (second class citizens). They hate that Israel exists because it is not a Muslim state. They are not too fond of Christian states either for the same reason. (Yes, I am generalizing and know that not all Muslims think this way, but dhimi and the idea of not living under the control of the dhimi has some mention in the Koran – which I have read.)

    @doughfoot
    "Or do you want a Greater Israel where a Jewish minority perpetually rules a Muslim majority who are denied equal participation in their country’s government on the basis of their ethnicity/religion? "
    FYI – the Muslims in Israel who have chosen to be Israeli citizens have representation in the government in equal proportion to their population. They have more rights, better living conditions, better wages, and better health care than the majority of Muslims living in Muslim countries. Bonus for Muslim citizens unlike Jewish citizens of Israel – they may but are not required to serve in the armed forces.

    As to the cartoon – IMHO the US cannot keep Jonathan Pollard locked in a Federal Penitentiary for giving secrets to an ally and then demand another country release people who gave us secrets because we are an ally.

    In Pakistan, this is called saving face.
    Too bad the face has already been removed.

    It’s not the De-tention, its the A-ttention they are getting. Those people have been outed and are now marked for death. God, help them.

    Monaco has never been invaded, it’s less than 9 miles wide. Even many Israelis have stated the ‘67 borders were actually EASIER to defend. As to Pakistan, about the same age as the state of Israel. Both were created by outside forces, and both behave like juvenile delinquents. Relating the “biblical Israel” to today’s should be taken the same as North America?? Then we’d have to give back all the land the British/French/and initially- SPANISH stole. Native tribes here only pre-date the Hebrew invasion of lands north of Egypt by about 8,000 years or so.

    How did Pakistan arresting five agents of the USCIA turn into a discussion about Israel??
    People should be asking, ‘What is the US doing for its agents?’
    Saying they were the ‘Mission Impossible’ team, and so disavowing any knowledge of their existence? Negotiating privately? What?

    If the US does nothing and thereby makes it clear that supporting the US will only lead to quick death by torture, won’t that make recruitment more difficult next time?
    (Of course, the best thing the US can do is to very quietly negotiate their release via baksheesh, that’s how things work, but baksheesh is difficult, or at least more expensive, if the wrong people know about it.)
