Why wouldn't I read your comment? You read mine so I show the same respect.In case you don't feel like reading the above: I will summarize it for you.
I am against Imperialism, and the very existence of Israel, since the day it was founded, is the Number One example of sneaky, greedy, disgusting, opportunistic imperialism by Western Countries who only care about their own selfish interests, and they sacrificed the Arabs for their Victory in WW1.
Read about this!
"The British did not know quite what to make of President Woodrow Wilson and his conviction (before America's entrance into the war) that the way to end hostilities was for both sides to accept "peace without victory." Two of Wilson's closest advisors, Louis Brandeis and Felix Frankfurter, were avid Zionists. How better to shore up an uncertain ally than by endorsing Zionist aims? The British adopted similar thinking when it came to the Russians, who were in the midst of their revolution. Several of the most prominent revolutionaries, including Leon Trotsky, were of Jewish descent. Why not see if they could be persuaded to keep Russia in the war by appealing to their latent Jewishness and giving them another reason to continue the fight?" ... These include not only those already mentioned but also Britain's desire to attract Jewish financial resources.
You see Mr Cro Pockets? You see on whose side you are on? Are those "CroPockets" of yours filled with Petrodollars?
Israel is imperialistic...how? I think if Israel wanted to expand further, they could have taken land and successfully held it against the half dozen nations that invaded them and lost virtually any chance to implement a counter-offensive. That goes for Egypt, Syria, Jordan, hell even Iraq. Sections of territory in said nations could have been absolved rather easily with practically no resistance if Israel was so keen on expanding her imperial goals. But that wasn't the case or Israel's intentions, just like it isn't now.
I know all about the Balfour Declaration. Israel and the Middle East is a conflict that has been raging for the better part of 2,000 years...no Western culture will ever understand what it takes to instill peace there, because it is just simply not possible. Not to mention it is a concept that Western cultures just cannot understand. Anytime they intervene with matters outside of their one-tracked minded culture they just end up complicating or botching the issue even more.
So because a nation will appeal to another's culture or religion that makes it entirely unique and applies ONLY to this instance of their "Jewishness"? Yeah because that's not a political tactic that has been used by nations all over the world since the beginning of time. Tell me Vitez who's pockets aren't filled with the petrodollar in the end? Petrodollar to the Euro, Euro to the Ruble, Ruble to the Yuan, and right back around again in no specified order. I am entirely positive the economy of Hungary is as dependent on the petrodollar as much as myself or any other poster might be, it's just not always so obvious. You have to see the quick, deceiving change of hands from one to the other; it's like watching a magician at work ;)
