Jewish voice for peace and other pro-peace Jews have taken back their voices. By not condemning and disavowing Israel’s evil, people are silently endorsing such heinous acts. I have Christian, and Muslim, and Jewish, and other people of faith and/or conscience among my family and friends that have the courage of conviction to speak out.

This fact doesn’t neab that a religious flock has the right to expel other people from their country on the grounds that they have been suffering from many atrocities. A blond from Sweden, a negroid from Ethiopia, a hindu from India, as well as a Khazar from esstern Europe has nothing to do with Palestine (even if they were christians, or jews, or even muslims). Most of the jewry that lived in Palestine and all over the middle east had long ago converted to christianity os Islam and only few stayed as arab jews

Before 1948, Jews were a guaranteed win for tyrants as a scapegoat for their own incompetence, and for general grousing and griping by the ignorant and bigoted everywhere.
Since the founding of Israel however, a sovereign nation with defensible borders, the landscape has changed but the old tradition remains. It’s much harder to rob and kill Jews today than any time since they backed Egypt against Nebuchadnezzar and lost in 597 B.C., and no substitute scapegoat has yet appeared.

That situation cannot continue.

Muslims have been fighting in this area for 1400 years. I think that Palestinian peace with Israel will probably come after Sunni peace with Shiites and Turkish peace with Kurds.

Second point. the Muslims lie all the time. The PLO/Hamas has been caught in countless lies to the media.
They accuse Israel of genocide. But Palestinian population has tripled since Israel started.
They accuse Israel of violations of international law when they use hospitals, schools, and UN facilities as military bases, in violation of international law.
Israel provides Gaza with free water, free medical care, and free electricity.
Israel so far this year has treated 180,000 Palestinians in Israeli hospitals. Palestinians have treated no Jews.
Israel’s phone calls to civilians is unprecedented in history. Israel is at the leading edge of humanitarianism in a war situation.
Compare Israel’s treatment of Palestinians to Muslim treatment of other Muslims in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, all over Africa, Kurdistan, Egypt, and Pakistan. It sets a standard that Muslims have no interest in trying to match.
In the last 30 days around the world, Jihad has taken the lives of 500 people and injured 700. The score card SO FAR for 2014 10,700 deaths and 13,000 injuries. Where is the outrage?

Please keep in mind the governments of the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in Iran, Anastasio Somoza DeBayle in Nicaragua, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and a host of other paradigms of good governance were also reliable allies.

The reason the rockets are fired is that the people firing them want to discontinue Israel’s existence. The people launching the rockets have installed them underground, beneath residential areas so that their own civilians will be killed if the launch sites are attacked. The only reason to support people like that is to side against Israel. The United States is not going to do that. Indeed, the anti-Israel cause was the cause espoused by the terrorists of 9/11 to justify their attack on the United States. (And they were not alone. Remember all of the dancing in the streets after 9/11.) Any success by these enemies of Israel is likely to encourage threat to the security of the United States. That pattern is clearly established.
