The US government still hasn’t paid for its last 10+ conflicts.

This artifical state was created to rid Europe of its Jews. What a shame!

“Absolutely not true. If so why not attack Hezbollah directly in Southern Lebanon? ”

But israel has repeatedly especially in 2006. Becaue of that they are targeting weapons before they do into Hezbollahs bunkers underneath schools and hospitals.

/but you already knew that since you dedicate yourself to lying for muslims. taqqiya.

Israel has been attacked since it’s inception. It would have been wiped from the map long ago under this theory. Israel has had to defend herself continually only now the world has much more sophicated weapons and those tactics have shifted accordingly. What a statement that Israel should turn the other cheeck-unbelievable. What Israel should do, however, is not cow bow to the religious right who are stiffling peace with continued settlements and unwillingness to compromise. So there is certainly blame on all sides when it comes to achieving peace, however, turning the other cheek when it comes ti security isn’t compromise, it’s suicide.

Geez I’d expect better from Rand Corp. that liberal butt-kissing.

This is why I’m so convinced that the anti-Israel posturing is always veiled anti-semitism. It makes it difficult for centrists like me to engage in critical debate over Israel. There are few with a reasoned and unemotional tone. To WhyMeLord..yeah, you probably think it’s their fault that the Romans spread them around, and that Mohammed and his followers murdered entire Jewish towns and that Edward Longshanks evicted them from England and the Inquisition tried to kill them or convert them and that the Russians killed many during their pogroms and on and on through to Hitler. My guess though is that you deny the Holocaust.

Anyway, on to the article. Simply put, it made sense. It’s funny that comments have lowered themselves to attacks on the author or her organization. The article is hardly pro-Israel – in fact, it doesn’t make a judgment on the use of force. It is simply warning against taking a hawkish approach to Syria by misinterpreting why Israel took the steps it did. I think it’s a good point. I don’t see why the US should jump into Syria at all. I deplore the massacre of civilians, but I don’t see how the US will make the situation any better by entering militarily.

It has cost us billions to stave off Israel this long, but we will ultimately go. To do otherwise would be to assert that US and Israeli interests are not mutually inclusive. And whom would dare assert that?
