with all due respect, Israel's enemies also include leftwing American Jews....
To speak out against israel is not the same as speaking out against Jews or their religion.

"The aggression that Zionism presents in originally taking the Holy Land from its indigenous inhabitants is the first flag that exposes this movement for what it is -- a real deviation from Judaism. Judaism forbids us from taking the land away from those who currently have jurisdiction over it. That such things should be done not only in opposition to Judaism, but in the name of the very Judaism it defies is simply large-scale fraud. Zionism, once exposed, proves to be the greatest enemy, the worst nightmare, to the Jewish religion and it's practitioners, that exists to date. Zionism, strikes out regularly at Jews who remain true to Torah and its precepts. There are many Jews who protest against the very existence of the State of Israel, and who are quite vocal, albeit peaceful, about their opposition. Whenever Zionist policies or activities run counter to the Torah stance, Torah-true Jews come forward to unmask the imposter. Unfortunately, they have many opportunities to voice their stand, because few countries in the world tramples on the religious rights of its inhabitants as regularly as does the State of Israel."

The Palestinian people just don't learn. They keep voting for pain and stupidity and Hamas plays them like a violin.Hamas shoots missiles from behind women & children and then run. When Israel strikes back at the missiles source, women & children die. And then Liberal Media like ABC, CNN rush in to video the carnage with reporters crying about the Israeli horror.
Meanwhile, Israelis created Iron Dome which has a 90% success rate in shooting down Hamas' missiles. But, unfortunately, this doesn't give Liberal film crews the opportunity to record dying women & children.(Even if they could, they wouldn't, though) The end result is that the Palestinian aggressors are made to look like victims while the Israeli victims are painted as being the aggressors.
Typical Liberal Media and Demokrat Party stuff. Fools here on Topix like Dupie, lily and Goosed. There is a sucker born every minute.
BTW, I love foreign movies and TV. Megahertz Mysteries, for example. Maria Wern, The Eagle, Montalbano, Marana, Wallander....just great stuff. They have something that American shows lack...I dunno what it is.
If the majority of these liberals and the propagandized media were born a Jew living in Israel and surrounded by enemies on all sides, they'd probably sing a different song.

When on parade, Iran's missiles have "Death to Israel" clearly legible written on them.

But Kerry can't wait to run back to Obama and tell him Iran promised to "freeze" their nuclear development for six months so "talks" can continue.

This Sunday is the deadline for Iran to start dismantling. But Obama will be pleased as punch and will consider their agreeing to continue "talking" with no sanctions a great victory.

Many speculate Iran is just six months away from having a nuclear weapon and Israel isn't going to wait for permission to bomb these sites. All heck could break loose before the end of the year. Obama might even have to cancel golfing.

I'd take a mediocre foreign film over the latest Hollyweird blockbuster any day. There IS something different about them...they're actually good! Not only educational in many ways but good story lines with great cinematography.

Some people, Carol included, can not get over the fact that Democrats win the presidency.

Bush won close to half of the Hispanic vote as well. And spoke Spanish fluently.

Democrats have always had their turn at the presidency. They used to win by what they stood for and it was always in the best interests of the country. Democratic presidents have always reached across the aisle and represented even those who didn't vote for them.

Now it's strictly party loyalty and party advantage by any means necessary and at any cost, ideologues demonizing any and all opposition and trying to silence any and all criticism, using the race card to label entire segments of the population and starting invisible wars which never seem to be a problem until an election year dividing Americans to gin up the liberal base is all they got now.

You can't be proud to be associated with the new and unrecognizable Democratic Party?

Not that I expect to get anywhere with an anti-abortionist but, are you trying to claim that you would favor abortion of this "thing" if it was nothing but a bunch of cells with no functioning organs or a beating heart? That would mean you favor abortion of this "thing" prior to 4 weeks from conception which is when it has a beating heart and fuctioning organs but no brain waves. They don't occur until 8 weeks from conception. A Zygote hasn't even undergone simple cell division.
Does the zygote have DNA? If so, what does the DNA tell us about the zygote?

But my original point - about not having the chance to reprioritize our priorities on both sides in 2007-2008 - a good crisis wasn't supposed to go to waste.
Now could you please explain to us what that means?
Invading Iraq was not a great moment in integrity.
Eliminating Iran's major enemy at the cost of 4500 killed and 100,000 wounded was not wise.

We're all aware of the threshold on which Iran is now sitting. Right?(Nod your head if you're a liberal.) Because if they can get away with playing cat and mouse with Kerry and Obama, Israel will not hesitate to take matters into their own hands.

And we're all aware of what could potentially happen if they do.

Right? Everyone on the same page? Liberals too?(Nod your head if you're a liberal.)

And now ISIS is becoming a potential national security threat with porous borders.

The world stage couldn't be more ripe for tensions building since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

GHW Bush and GW Bush are too liberal for the republican party of today.
Or do you embrace Prescription drug coverage under Medicare.
Obamacare is the child of Bush's ides and Romneycare.

Attorney General, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global power seems increasingly tenuous.”

Civil wars in Iraq and Syria, hostilities between Israel and the Palestinians, an electoral crisis in Afghanistan, tension with Russia over Ukraine, floundering nuclear negotiations with Iran and renewed Chinese expansionism plus the current crisis on the United States’ Southern border.

But the president’s press secretary, Josh Earnest, today claimed Obama was bringing “tranquility” to the globe.

Does that translate to liberals "sooooo...no worries"? Just curious.

At least Republicans are questioning career politicians even in their own party.

Most Democrats would 'ordain' lifelong career politicians like Pelosi and Reid if given a choice.

Conservatives, independents and libertarians alike would vote for a Rand Paul if he was able to deliver the right message in 2016. Anyone with the right message is what we ALL need about now.

I'm just hoping the growing tensions on the world stage won't erupt before then and our vulnerability - both economically and security-wise - remains intact until then.

2-1/2 years can seem like a blink of an eye or an eternity depending on how good or how bad things are in the present.
