  •  The Israeli people somehow manage to (0+ / 0-)

    tolerate such a government, and the West Bank settlements (since 1973), not to mention the recent bombing of Lebanese infrastructure.  That's bad enough, I think.  I do not condone rocket attacks by Hamas -- they are acts of terrorism-- but also, be it said, of desperation.  The damage is highly disproportionate.  In the past year, something like 3 Israelis died in rocket attacks, and 78 Palestinians from Israeli gun fire. Over this same period, approximately 400 Israelis were killed in automobile accidents.

    In any case, my grandfather brought his family to America from Grodno (in present-day Belarus) in 1908 (in 1908 my father was 12 years old) exactly because he wished not to go to Palestine (there was a Zionist movement even then, so emigration to Palestine was an option).

    My grandfather's reasoning was (in essence) that the Arabs are already there, so why disturb them?

    •  I am not disputing that, just use of JEWISH (0+ / 0-)

      (a religion and  a people) rather than ISRAELI a country

      Bush made immoral war and killed tens of thousands of Iraqi's. Yet half of all Americans re elected him.

      YET his right wing immoral goverment did not stand for us.

      It may be that Bibis actions do not stand for many Israelis either.
      REgardless of that
      it is not just to label all Jews (poster said JEWISH PEOPLE) by the actions of this right wing government of this particular country.

      You needn't argue the other things I don't dispute them
