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.<quoted text>
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.
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.
