Gosh,you use a lot of words just too say I have 'bizarre convictions' and that I am 'off' mentally.<quoted text>
I was right.
I am pretty sure Israel knew it was surrounded. It has always been surrounded my enemies. That is nothing new. It's been true since the founding of the nation of Isreal as a modern recognized state in 1948 when the Arabs tried to destroy Israel at its beginning.
Does truth2 and other like minded 'thinkers' know why Israel in in the west bank? Not likely. See the 1967 war.
Gaza has not been occupied by Israel for years. Its border to Egypt is open now. Tons of necessary supplies come through Israel to Gaza each day. Israel produces the electricity for Gaza.
Israel is a represenative democracy which includes Arab Muslims, elected by Israelies, in their legislative body. Jews and Israelies in general are VASTLY outnumber by Muslim populations in neighboring countries.
The fact that people like truth2 exists does not show that the US should reevaluate its support of Israel or take another look at who the 'bad guys' are in the region.
The fact that people like truth2 exist is more a psychological question, a question along the lines of what need is satisfied in such people with bizarre convictions, or how someone can strongly hold such false positions in the light of overwhelming proof to the contrary.
Knowleable people on both sides of the issue, even the terrorists, know people like truth2 are just 'off' mentally.
Israel could not exist without American taxpayer money. This year it will cost us four billion dollars. We have always financed this 'modern country' else it could not exist and you know it. Each year they come back to ask for even more dollars.
AIPAC,the powerful Israel lobby in Washington have often bragged that no politician in America can be elected without their approval. That includes the President. That's the power they have in this country. Not to mention that they control most of the news media and the movie industry.
You fail to mention Israel's blockade of Gaza. You just cannot admit that 'Its the occupation stupid'. Now tell me how free Gaza really is.
