I don't deny that the United States has done its share of wrong and stupid things. But reckless phrases like "genocide by Israel" don't help. I like Iranian people and their beautiful culture. But the government of Iran is a warmongering terrorist that has openly called for Israel's destruction. Just who is plotting genocide against whom, huh?

The Allies also did wrong to Germany at the Treaty of Versailles. But did that justify Hitler and the things he did? Rather than painting the US as the villain of the piece, stand loyally by her and Israel while the shish kebab equivalent of Hitler threatens international peace and safety.
