LOL Oh no. Not getting into THIS discussion here. I like too many of the opiners <<grin>>. I'm a citizen of Israel as well as have many relatives there. Lost the bulk of the relatives on my grandfather's side to Auschwitz, and 2 cousins who died AFTER leaving on the MS St. Louis only to be denied entry to the US by the president, and returned to concentration camps. My cousins fought in the 6 day war, and ..... I guess I think I'm a bit too close to the subject.
Miss Foo...I humbly apologize if my comments have offended you - especially since I do think the Jewish State is worthy of our help, and I don't begrudge it, much as it may seem so to Rose.

I simply don't think Israelis are MORE worthy of our help than others among the persecuted, or that Jewish People have MORE right to a homeland than Palestinian People do.

But I also am not close to the situation, especially not in a familial way. So again, if I've seemed callous, or offensive, I do apologize.

Nope, no need to apologize, nor have I taken any offence, many feel that way, including myself in a way.

Most Jews I know believe that Palestine deserves a state as well, simply not as a part of Israel's land. Why doesn't Egypt free up land for them as well?

One of the biggest issues that I can see, is that by granting them the land they WANT, would leave Israel effectively land-locked, surrounded on 4 sides by hostile nations. And that's just a tiny part of a large, complex issue.

You're wrong, but hey not a shock at all.
Actually, I'm NOT wrong at all.

Israel is a JEWISH nation. The G-d of Israel and the Jewish people is NOT jesus. Never was, never will be.
BUT jesus is God over Isreal and every other speck of ground on the.planet. He is also your God, whether you like it or not.
Seriously? FUCKYOU Gtown. Your jesus is NOT my g-d, nor is it g-d of the Jewish faith. Its NOTHING to the Jewish faith. How ignorant and arrogant of you to try to tell ME who MY faith's G-d is.

It is NOT Jesus. Grow the hell up and deal with it.

I'm not sure why that's so hard for you to grasp, when the rest of the world understands it just fine, but that's your stupidity and blindness, not anyone elses.

You child - do NOT tell me or ANYONE ELSE who their G-d is. I AM telling you that ***your*** jesus is shit to me. 100% Meaningless.
One day you will bow your knee and tell Him that to the glory of the Father.
Bullshit. I wont EVER bow to your jesus. Not now, not ever. If ONLY beause I will NEVER bow to anything that would claim the likes of YOU as one of its followers.
What kinda god do you claim or do you just claim to be part of a religious movement somewhere?
I am of the Jewish faith, a practicing Jew. Neither I nor ANYONE of the Jewish faith claims your version of g-d. Hell, most CHRISTIANS dont claim YOUR bastardized version of g-d for that matter.

You spit on your g-d with every bullshit post like this you make.

You would be.
I remember when I was about 8 or 9, my grandfather started telling me stories about how our family was rounded up (and other families too, but at that age, I was focused on OUR family - I didnt realise the enormity of it until I was older), and I asked him what I thought was a very simple question:
How come when they came to the doors, didn't you just tell them you weren't Jewish?
He told me, they couldn't. LITERALLY couldn't deny who they were. It never even occoured to them.
I didn't understand that as a child, but as I've gotten older and met so many survivors, I do, and I'd like to think I'd do the same as they did - NOT deny who they are and deal with the consequences of that admission. My grandmother would get furious when he'd tell me these terrible stories about what happened in Auschwitz - and he replied "If I could live it at her age, she can hear about it."
I'm glad he did, as he died when I was 13, before I was old enough to know the RIGHT questions to ask, y'know?
I have read a lot about the camps and the war. But what you said about your grandparents has me in tears. This,abomination touched many generations. When I read about what your grammar said about living through. All I could think of was the phrase "never again"

I do like to think I could never deny God. Deny Jesus. I pray I am never put to that test.I am afraid of pain but pray I would be strong as your family was. ISRAEL was forged on the blood and determination of people like them:)

Okay sweetie, I'll check it in a few before I got to sleep!
What you said here isa
Exactly what my point was this afternoon. Israel deserved a home country then and now. Sorry you had such a close up example.
There was no country to take the refugees. And for that reason alone Israel should never Be in that position again.
What happened on the MS St. Louis is almost a lost footnote in history. Many Jews dont even know about it, let alone remember it. It was a disgrace of not only OUR nation, but Cuba and Canada as well. I agree with you on that.

There's an interesting book that Michael Chabon wrote called the Yiddish Policeman's Union, where in a look at an alternate history, what would have happened if Israel took the land of Alaska for Israel, instead of the Middle East. Interesting book!

Just one more comment about this part of your post:

I happen to agree with you on the first part - 100%. Period. No question or modification, you're simply completely correct.

As to the second part, its not that they have "MORE" right to a homeland, it IS their homeland - fought for and won - long acknowledged by the world INCLUDING Egypt, and thus shouldn't be chopped up to appease a regieme that's dedicated to wipeing OUT the Jewish people, y'now?

For that matter, too many assholes in the world aren't just like the warmongers there, but like OTHER assholes like our very own Gtown, who think its all about jesus, when in FACT, that has little or NOTHING to do with it politically or ideologically. Those fools would be fighting a war for the wrong reasons, trying to make it about THEM and their version of faith while pretending its about protecting Israel for Israel's sake.

Israel is populated by and theologically about many faiths in its origins, but its the homeland to only one - the Jewish faith and its people.

THe same can be said about many nations however, so how many do we make a priority and for what reasons? I think THAT is the question. I think that's why so many Jews took to the situation in Darfur, why there's such a deep connection there. You might enjoy this article - you too Rose:

Now I know I'm going to be attacked by the religous freaks here, but they're a joke and everyone knows it. These are MY views and MY feelings, and they've got more basis in fact than those idiots views.

So do all NORMAL people.

Then you, and they - are fk'd.

Have to look at it . Hope can get a sample on Madame. The thing is..the history was Israel. The Temple. The Patriarchs.

The Thoenes have written books centred on each country ad Hitler took over. And then a series on the founding of the Jewish State. And what they found there. They have fictional characters but I learned a lot about Hitler's strategy. He just basically walked all over them.
And the attitude of other countries in not accepting the refugees. Admittedly no one knew how bad it was but still.

Good. You shouldn't and I dont have a moments doubt that you ever would. Jesus is your G-d, and is as important as breath to you, just as my G-d is to me, tho its not Jesus. One should NEVER have to die or suffer because of their spiritual beliefs - OR their lack of belief for that matter.

One thing I know for sure, no matter WHAT religous view we have - G-d would NEVER want that.

Never again is right.
I am afraid of pain but pray I would be strong as your family was. ISRAEL was forged on the blood and determination of people like them:)
And it was forged by people like you too Rose, and playa1965, Sue, La, Katie, Bit and more as well, so dont EVER sell yourself - or humanity short. If it wasn't FOR people like you, we (the Jewish people) as well as gypsies, the Poles, gays and lesbians, stand up priests and nuns and so many more would have been wiped out. YOU and people like you, of all faiths and stripes, fought FOR us when we couldn't fight for ourselves, remember that.

I've read that - and I loved it! It was a great story, and a very valid premise. I've often wondered why we didn't do something similar, if we wanted to assure the Jewish People of a homeland. Why not put our money where our mouths are, and make it here, where it wouldn't have been so hotly contested by the Arabs??

But of course, Alaska is holy land to the Aleutians and the Inuit....and that gesture might have rankled with them a bit....
