    Israel is continuing to expand into Palestinian land now. Don't the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves?

    Other Arab nations have refused to take Palestinians into their land. They do not care. They use them as pawns in their own game and nothing more. Those people are nothing but political leverage.

    That's not an excuse to continue driving the Arabs out.

    Yeah, it is a political game. That's not really Palestine's fault. I'm not really anti-Israel but I don't think its fair to just pretend like the Palestinian problem doesn't exist.

    In the immediate term though, Israel bombed Syria. Since nobody has been able to tell me how this is "Defense", I'm going to make the logical assumption that this is just aggression on Israel's part.

    It was a response to your ignorance. It would probably serve you well to read the history of Israel if you want to debate her actions. I don't yet have any confidence that you've done so.

    Israel doesn't pretend there isn't an issue.

    I don't know as much as I'd like.

    Israel doesn't pretend there isn't an issue.
    From my understanding, that's true. Its the United States that pretends that its not an issue.

    Look, Israel isn't really my problem here. Its like blaming a common drug smuggler for Al Capone. America is the problem here. The USA is enabling Israel to be reckless and get away with it. If Israel wants to bomb Syria, they should not expect any support. And bombing Syria is not "Defense."

    but any country has the right to stop terrorist organisations trying to destroy it from getting chemical weapons and the delivery systems to deploy them.


    Action by Israel is not first strike. Al-queda threw the first punch and has declared they will never quit until the Jews and great satan (USA) are gone.

    Also the Assad regime has used heavy weapons its own population at that point they loose all legitimacy as a government.
    Not really. The rebels are al-queada. Civil war is the correct term, just not in the manner the media portrays. Al-queada is fighting Iran for control of the islamic world.

    The Arabs moved out, those that remained in Jerusalem have not been driven out. That is history

    He may be liberal but at least he's not a Zionist.

    No they haven't. That's BS. Have you heard of Michael Schuer?

    Good for them. Who cares?

    Yeah, he's not going to die.

    At least not by that cause.

    Regarding taking Islam seriously, I take them so seriously that I don't want to provoke enemies for no reason.

    Yeah, because that worked so well for Bill Clinton when he told the Sudan no in regards to offering him Bin Laden. Don't want to incite them.

    There are only a few people on this forum that are dumber than you. And that airhead rainee is one of them. Just let you know where you stand in the scheme of things.

    You're more liberal than me, at least on the economy. You support socialized infrastructure. So shut up

    Yet among other things, Bill Clinton bombed the crap out of Iraq. Total noninterventionist position, that.

    George W. Bush ran on a platform of less intervention. He didn't follow it, but that's what he ran on. And that was the conservative position throughout most of American history. Neo-cons are neo-trotskyites, not real conservatives.

    As for my status on this forum, there are people here who are smarter than I am, but you aren't one of them.

    You're probably the third or fourth dumbest.

    Yep, the list of posters dumber than you is short.

    You support socialized infrastructure.

    And lets not forget aspirin factories.

    George W. Bush ran on a platform of less intervention.
    And then 9-11 was his wake up call to bad policy.

    I think the issue is much bigger an Al queda, Isreal had major legitimate security concerns before Al Quaeda and will have them after as well. To simplify this as al queda vs isreal reduces and very complex situation down to the plot of a John Wayne film

    Not really. The rebels are al-queada. Civil war is the correct term, just not in the manner the media portrays. Al-queada is fighting Iran for control of the Islamic world.
    The truth is some of the rebels are Al-Queda many others are not, the lack of western support for the more secular rebels, created a void Al-Queda based groups have filled and have since defined this war into another Shiite vrs Sunni sectarian conflict.

    20 -20 hindsight is a wonderful thing, and I understand our slowness for wanting to get invloved. But Russia and Chinas support of the Assad regime has created a fertile breading ground for al queda in syria.

    It's simple (well, sort of).

    Arabs (Muslims) can accept that Yeshua (Jesus Christ) is the Savior of mankind, both Jews as well as Gentiles.

    They can reject their false beliefs and accept the truth.

    They can be saved.

    The choice is theirs, and the gift has been freely given.
