does helping Israel Now help our interests. Sure. But Rwanda is internal we can help but we can't go deposing her army.
Israel..
It's neighbors who are NOT our friends want to wipe them out.
They are surrounded by enemies.
I am glad we are helping them ..But they are on the frontline alone.
I'm sorry, but if the Jewish Holocaust was somehow more 'holocausty' than the others, I don't see it.
Germany was home to as many Jews as Poland, or Hungary, or the Netherlands, or Italy, or France. Why don't any of THOSE countries 'OWE' the Jewish People a home?
I have nothing against Jews, but I also don't think they're 'more important' than Croats, or Nigerians, or Sudanese.
You're right - we're not going to agree on Israel.

This has been a nation of the religiously persecuted, since we left the shores from which we originally sailed to get here. Our predecessors were fleeing for the right NOT to worship the way the King or Queen did, as much as the right to worship as they pleased.
Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, exactly as a Land-owning Libertarian Deist would: He was a slaveholder, but he was absolutely a believer that the Creator does not involve itself in our day to day affairs. He was not a Christian, and he never ever claimed to be one.
Seriously how can you say we are a persecuted nation. I don't get that all

And you think America has persecuted religion.
No.
I believe religion does the persecuting.
I believe America should maintain the Separation of Church and State. Imposing religious statements on the currency, violates that, in my opinion.
I believe my 'religious freedom' is the freedom to worship NOTHING, and you believe it is your religious freedom to worship 'God'. We're both right.

Try living in a Communist or Sharia society.
Communism isn't my preferred ECONOMIC system, and Christianity has it's own set of Sharia-like principles. But fortunately this country is not RUN by religion - no thanks to Christians, who would like to see 'abortion is evil' and 'being gay is an abomination unto the Lord' become codified in law for everyone.
Please don't say they aren't 'real Christians', since they don't think you're one either. Ask Lightfarce, or worshipsthefetus. They've already told you so.

Really? Not perfect? Imagine that....from all the evidence, Christians sure seem to think they're more 'perfect' than the heathens....since they have the divine right to slaughter the heathens in droves throughout history....in the name of 'God', no less.

But purification is freedom OF religion. Not FROM religion..
I'm going to give credit for this to Madame Kindle - Freedom of religion is the freedom to worship (not coerce) as one sees fit. I see fit not to worship. That is how I express my freedom of religion.
Sorry if you don't like it, but there are LOTS of Americans who don't worship at all. The Constitution includes us as citizens...but these days the currency does not.
I think it's appalling.

<quoted text>
BUT as a country no one makes anyone worship anything
No one CAN make anyone worship anything. What we worship or not, is a personal choice. One can PRETEND to worship something, in order to survive, but trust me - only someone who has a personal change of heart makes a true conversion.
Think of it this way: if the Muslims DID take over America, would you ever REALLY worship Allah? Or would you exercise your freedom NOT to, and be a martyr...or pretend to convert so they wouldn't kill you?

I sm glad it was then and not now. Just by the comments today..its disheartening. Maybe the world thought..oh lrf them have it. The Arabs ..who are really friendly with Hitler..will take it away
But they didn't let them. They. Held on against all the odds against them.

What is now Isrsel was controlled by the British. The Israelis made. It s great country

And now the Others want to take all the advances they have made. To annihilate them and we should just sit by???I pray the answer is no never.

Yeah. I know what you mean.
Some politicians count on one issue voters, like the AC crowd. I don't believe they want abortion to be rare. What would they have to run on?
I tend to believe PC politicians want abortion to be rare if they say so because they have no stake in it.
Its a business and a huge constituency. On the PC side.
And yes dome Pl vote on it also.

See this is the thing. You cant admit that The PC side even has a stake. You font think they get contributions from PC groups?? And election is the name of the game tor both sides.

But we just 'sit by' and let millions die in other genocides...

The persecuted of any other ethnicity are just 'on their own' because they're either not Jewish, or don't have enough weapons to secure their own national resources...

It's only the 'persecuted Jews' who benefit from our financial and military favor.

The PC crowd certainly can't claim to be "inclusive", they are the most intolerant of all. Want proof? Disagree with them and watch to see just how tolerant they are of your opinion.
You'll have to do better than that.

How about finishing this sentence -- In society the _____ are tolerant of pregnant women aborting their unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies for any reason whatsoever during the first trimester.

Do you really think answering with "the Acers" is correct??

This country aids as it can. Personally I would put all those people running places like that in jail.
look at all the money they went to Haiti and are they. Much better. No. The gov takes a lot of it and that goes for other aid we send tl poor countries.

We cant do everything. We could go to war I suppose. Hoe many wars.

And orgsnizayions like Samaritans purse were in the Sudan long before the celebs made it news.
And kn Haiti they designed and built portable eyelets for Haiti.

Much as some of you hate Christians. They have. Given more on private charity to those countries thsn anyone. Private and not for publicity...
And they go there and implement aid.
The 2 pres who did the Haitian thing were great but all that money ..those people. Still in tents with hurricanes coming.

In the Sudan the muslims kill the Christian. They are all the same race. Do we kill the Muslims??

We as a country give aid to everyone and get spit on..but we continue to give it. We were there even for the Iranians after the "earthquake".

There is a lot about the way this country had gone that I font like. But we are still the greatest ad far ad our hearts for the less fortunate!!

So tell me who do we go kill. Who to we arm.

With Israel its different. We know they are in danger and they can fight and have for themselves.
I am glad we are on their side. They are allies. Allies. Allies!!

Oh and on the worship question...I pray I would be strong enough to resist even an outward show. But under torture you can only pray to be strong.

I would never not move Jesus. And just cant imagine my life would be worth keeping in the situation you describe.
people have died professing the faith. I hope I would be strong enough.

And the Croatians were not allies....so they could just keep getting slaughtered...and the Biafrans were not allies, so they could just keep starving...and the Rwandans were not allies, so they could just keep getting gang raped...we didn't care.

And if the Israelis were 'doing it on their own', we wouldn't feel the need to keep sending them billions, and shield them with an 'Iron Dome' from their 'persecutors'.

Please, the hypocrisy is obscene.

See my post on who should we kill. Israel ss a country has outside enemies and yes they can help themselves. Others its more internal.

We took side in Bosnia. But whose side did we take. At one time we have sided s lot of nations who then go to other sides.

Id like lock up all the dictators. But who replaces. Them.

That's about the same as your statement.

It was a scary time..especially when the missiles were close. Really close. Castro was a horrid person and this area was flooded with refugees.

REAGAN stood up to the Russian on the wall question..but Kennedy was great in My eyes. I can remember so well hearing about it in school. We were all shocked to the core. Thia country was in mourning..

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.
