Thank God!
Peace is near. The end is in sight!
This has never been a fight between Jews and Arabs. As I have said over and over again, they are victims of their zionist and Hamas leaders. The people have always wanted to live in peace.

All the kumbaya in the world won't make a difference as long as the leaders are unwilling to listen.

Jews have been there since long before there were Muslims.
Statistics do not support your claim. Muslims have ruled Palestine for 1,400 years. You would have to go back to before AD 70 to find a time when the Jews had any significant influence in Palestine.

Obama agrees to send $47 million in ¨humanitarian¨ aid to Hamas.
It IS a humanitarian crisis.

"Israel's airstrikes and military actions in the Gaza Strip could amount to war crimes, the UN's high commissioner for human rights said in Geneva on Wednesday. Navi Pillay cited cases of Israeli airstrikes or shelling hitting houses and hospitals in Gaza."

"These are just a few examples where there seems to be a strong possibility that international humanitarian law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes," Pillay told the UN's human rights council, also pointing to attacks killing civilians and children.

She added that "147 children have been killed in Gaza over the past 16 days. They had a right to life, just like children in any other countries."

Pillay said Israeli children shared these rights and should also be able to live without fear of rocket attacks from Gaza. The indiscriminate nature of Hamas rocket fire, Pillay said, also clearly went against principles of distinction and precaution when identifying military targets...."

"The Palestinian observer mission to the UN had requested that the 47-member UNHCR "urgently dispatch an independent, international commission of inquiry … to investigate all violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip."

The Palestinian request sought an inquest into all military operations since June 13. Israel's regular airstrikes against Gaza began on July 8, with a ground offensive starting last Thursday. The earlier date given by the Palestinians refers to Israeli efforts during June to locate three kidnapped teenagers, found dead on June 30. Hundreds of Palestinians were detained during the search."

survey says!

'Eighteen percent of Americans, or fewer than one in five, say they or someone in their family is better off because of the Affordable Care Act, according to a new poll by CNN. Nearly twice that number, 35 percent, say they or someone in their family is worse off. A larger group, 46 percent, say they are about the same after Obamacare as before.'

'According to a new Pew Research report, in fiscal year 2013, 91% of illegal immigrant "children" apprehended at the border were teenagers. Of the nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant "children" who were apprehended since October of last year, 84% have been teenagers.'

funny, but most of the people on Topix who say they are , or "a friend" is worse off, when questioned as to why turn out to run from the bullshit they posted...

why are these people worse off? did the poll say that?

It's not black and white. Carol and Lily both have valid arguments. These cases will be determined on a case by case basis. Some children will be returned to their native country (especially the mother/child duo) and others will be allowed to stay. There is not and should not be any blanket granting of asylum. Those who meet our requirements should be "welcomed and protected". That is the American way.
I find it pathetic that people like Marco Rubio are crying for a change in the immigration laws that permitted his parent to come from Cuba. He's plan is to grant legal status based on job skills instead of humanitarian needs. Something is really wrong with someone who offers that as a solution.
Marco Rubio is not the sharpest pencil in the box. The Cubans have a superiority complex, they feel they are more entitled than others. The wet foot dry foot seems to be fir Cubans, not Haitians

Minnesota Public Radio just did an extensive interview with him, as they do with all national figures in the spotlight.

his economic views had some basis but his immigration views were based soley on popular soundbytes and had nothing to do with the reality of this problem this guy is a flash in teh pan. expect no more brilliance from him than the gleam off his cufflinks.
