Just as the radical Imams indoctrinate Arab youth to hate the Jewish people and Israel from their lofty moques in the middle East, elitist socialist college professors indoctrinate American students from their academic ivory towers to defend and support the actions of terrorists at the expense of US democratic allies and the expense of America's own national Security.

Brian you have to point that finger both ways, if Hammas and Palestine had been treated fairly by Israel this would not be an issue, there had to be reasons why the Isrealites were hated so much by the third reich, and I'll bet it also had something to do with greedyness.
How silly of me to forget that greedy jews and their families should be rounded up, shot, thrown into camps, and gassed by the millions. Serves 'em right, eh?

Hamas has launched over 3000 rockets and bombs indiscriminately into Israel over the past several months. So, Israel defends itself and the writer whines about morals. What thought process produces such drivel? Are liberals just plain insane?
Please remember this is not about Liberals/Conservatives at all. You and I apparently agree wholeheartedly on this topic, as does Ramdan, and you are a conservative and we are either liberals or democrats.(Can't speak for Ramdan, who could have some other party affiliation than mine).

LIVE FOREVER. i know not the "politicaly correct" thing to say but I myself am getting pretty tired of having my taxes raised every year and it going to Isreal. I'M not jewish and they don't support me why do I have to support them?
Likewise, why should my tax money go to pay for the abortion you have to get for your 14 year old stepdaughter when you knock her up after a night of malt liquor and crystal meth, in your trailer in the red state hills where you live?

I beg you to show tolerance.
This conflict shows the barbarism pure with borrowed brain and money to buy weapons .
When we all join together and stop the invisible perpetratpr of nonsensical violence then comes the peace.

Israel is doing the exact right thing. Their patience before taking this military action is amazing.

They are to be commended.

Maybe a few rockets landing in their living rooms might cause these college professors to rethink a bit?

They have shown remarkable restraint in the face of hundreds and hundreds of rockets being launched from Gaza!
The people on this string who are condemning the Israeli response to Terror need to ask themselves how long they would want the American Government to wait before responding to rockets coming out of Mexico,or Canada!
These same people offer no suggestions as to how Israel should go about protecting their citizens from Hamas,an organization sworn to eradicate the state of Israel and all its inhabitants!
I say go in and clean house!

Perhaps It's time to kick AIPAC out of the US and tell Israel they are on their own.

How to make peace with the hamas who were elected by the people?

Say Sorry brother.
My forefathers had a bitter life under Hitler.
let us not revive hitlerism in ME..
Most of our relatives are spread around the globe.
Now is the time to stop barbarism and project civilian culture.

This will make a bit impact but this total war slogan will make israel a HELL.

Tell us how you really feel...is it Abdul or Adolph, or a combination of both? Israel trying to co exist surrounded by millions of fanatical lunatics, crazed by a poisionous religion who murder thousands because of a cartoon. Israel will have to become more agressive if they want to survive. Arabs and persians only respect strength and force...dispise weakness and tollerance. Learn from history.

The Israelis are a very brave and admirable people who must once again stand up against the forces of evil. It's really quite amazing that they are able to persevere while surrounded by blood thirsty barbarians who devote their lives to killing infidels. Meanwhile, Israel has to put up with unjust anti semitic criticism coming from all directions.

Israel would accept a peaceful 2 state solution at any moment, yet the offer is never made by the Palestinians. In fact, it is stated in the democratically elected Hamas charter that a 2 state solution is unacceptable and Jihad is the only answer. Since the Palestinian people elected Hamas, they are culpable for the current Israeli defensive response. There is no such thing as a disproportionate response to attempted murder. The Israelis are justified in their current defensive actions.

Does that include the the rogue elements in our government or the Israeli Mossad that was involved in the WTC attacks on 9/11?
