The GOP and Israel

Scott McConnell concludes that Jeb Bush has learned nothing from his brother’s failures:

His appearance at Sheldon’s event is an early and important indication. It’s perhaps not decisive, but it is clear that he has concluded there’s nothing wrong, politically or morally, with paying homage to a loyal-to-Israel warmonger. For all those who might have hoped Jeb had learned something useful from the failed presidency of his brother, it’s a pretty clear indication. Most probably, he has not.

That’s true. The more dispiriting news from the recent “suck-up fest” in Las Vegas is that the same is true of virtually all Republicans with any interest in running for president. The GOP over the last few years has gone from being a reflexively hawkish “pro-Israel” party during the Bush years to being one that eagerly caters to the most fanatical kinds of “pro-Israel” views without even trying to pretend otherwise. It has gone from being almost completely uncritical in its support for hard-line Israeli policies to becoming a party dominated by mindless yes-men on anything related to the country. Even George W. Bush could bring himself to say the phrase “occupied territories” at the start of his presidency, but now that is something that aspiring Republican candidates are apparently not permitted to say if they don’t want to be perceived as lacking in “pro-Israel” zeal. Bush at least feigned interest in a two-state solution, but it seems less and less likely that most of the potential 2016 candidates will even bother paying the idea lip service.

To some extent, this can be explained by the desire to appear more hawkish than the administration, which requires Republican politicians to take increasingly hard-line positions in order to attack Obama for “weakness.” Another factor is the near-unanimity in conservative media in favor of a “pro-Israel” hawkish line on Iran, Palestine, and any other related issues. Uncritical support is simply taken for granted, and becomes a litmus test for maintaining one’s standing on the right. Most of the 2012 candidates were climbing over one another in their eagerness to express just how total and undying their devotion was. Whatever the reasons may be, the Republican Party has become far more uniform and intense in its “pro-Israel” views than it used to be, and it is becoming this way at the same time that the country as a whole is becoming much less so.

Don't go all Carol on me Lily. Regular immigration process is long, cumbersome and for the refugees hopelessly expensive. It's also geared not for those like these children but more for skilled workers. If the Irish escaping from the Potato Famine or Eastern European Jews fleeing from the pogroms had to wait on this process they would have died long before they were allowed into this country.
One of the things that fuel gang violence in these countries as well as in our own is drug money. Our failed War on Drugs has exacerbated this situation just like Prohibition did in this country in the 1920s.
There's no easy answers Lily.
Call me a hopeless idealist but I take Matthew 25:35 seriously;
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
Actually I think Carol is in favor of keeping them here. I just can't understand who is going to take care of these children. Those countries have armies; maybe it's time they used them on the drug cartels and killed them all; however I think those leaders are all taking drug money.
I just think if we accept all these children then word spreads like wildfire and we'll have a million Haitians and Cubans on the shores of Florida; and what will we do with them either?
Is it not better to help these people stay in their own countries, with their own families, who speak their own language?
We certainly have our share of people who abuse children in this country. Actually Honduras and Guatemala were on the list obtained from a former professor here who was arrested for child molestation; he had brought a boy of 12 from one of those countries; until the boy finally had the courage to tell the teacher what was happening to him.
The harddrives in his computer had a handbook of where to find hopeless poor families and how to offer them a house and promise a bright future for their sons etc. It's disgusting.

Not hardly. Islam is still practicing their special brand of tolerance and peace. Christianity only attacks your conscience.
Isn’t it strange how human hubris and arrogance can cause death, destruction, and chaos? Self-righteousness and a profound sense of superiority have been responsible for the deaths of millions of humans throughout history.

The Taliban of Afghanistan consist of men who worship power above all else and abuse the name of God or Allah to justify their evil ways.

Sadly and tragically certain fundamentalist and extremist men who thump bibles and call themselves ‘Christians’ behave in a similar reprehensible and evil fashion. They themselves constitute that element of society which Jesus Himself so loathed—the power crazed HYPOCRITE!!!

If we continue to lose our basic human rights and freedoms as Americans these evil men will eventually use their extremist and twisted interpretations of Biblical Scripture to terrorize our citizens.

As they gain power and prestige they will launch a campaign of hate, bigotry, and persecution of women, which will mimic the pernicious evil of the Taliban—thus becoming a ‘Christian Taliban’.

trying to force your viewpoint upon those who don't hold the same is much more than 'attacking conscience'.
