  • Easily, because they are just as violent as the muslims over there, and i refuse to condone either of them. Killing is killing. And it is all over a strip of land and intolerance of the other religion. They are both at fault and they are both to blame. And im tired of America jumping behind Isreal, becaue they are not muslims. It is all a bunch of crap. This is one of the things that makes me embarrassed to be an American. Can't keep our nose in our own business. And by the way, i am not christian or muslim.........i just believe in right and wrong.

  • Depends what news stories you see. If you're unaware that Hamas has been lobbing bombs into Israeli neighborhoods since Christmas Day ( and the Israelis are only now seriously defending their citizens), then you would think this started when the media started talking about it. A BIG question: WHY are all those civilians still sitting in the targeted zone? Israel announces when they are going to strike - are the people idiots? They're not primitive - they have cell phones, etc. yet they don't leave. When violence like this happens in Africa refugees leave en masse, so why not here? Oh, yeah - because the surrounding MUSLIM countries WON'T LET them LEAVE. That's how this started decades ago: the neighboring countries WANTED non-Israelis to be STUCK there and create a political mess. The original "palestinians" could have moved on and created lives for their children. Why no protests against this cynical use of people as pawns?

  • Israel has never been a tolerant country and neither has Pakistan. Both are violent and will fight till the end. And Israel has no problem sending in suicide bombers, just as the Pakistani's do. Like i said, they are both in the wrong and I will not stand for either country.

  • boy or girl--

    "And by the way, i am not christian or muslim.........i just believe in right and wrong." --I bet if you were jewish and lived in Israel anytime in the last 60 years you wouldn't think it was "just a bunch of crap."

  • Boy or girl...I am so glad to hear someone else say that!! We back Isreal beacuse it is the holy land, but they are just as war hungry has Hezbola or Hamas, we would never allow another counrty to come in and tell us who has the right rule, and yet we do it all the time, we let allies (isreal) do it. Is Hamas the best, have they been tossing bombs thier way ....yes, but does that mean Isreal has the right to go in and wipe them out? Not in my book, it's no wonder thier is so much hatered in those countries.

  • Boy or girl, It is not the Jewish population in Israel that uses its people as bombs. That is a radical Islam idea. By the way, if you are embarrassed to be an American immigrate to Canada or France. You sound like you might like it.

  • Hmm, being jewish in the last 60 yrs??? well yeah, i know all about the hollocaust, but maybe you are ignorant and do not know that it was Germans, not Muslims that were killing Jews. So how exactly does your arguement stand up??

    Answer by boy_or_girl at 12:34 AM on Jan. 4, 2009

  • And on to the suicide bombings, you need to read up and do some serious research, because both islam and israelis do it. It just gets published by the news media as only Islam, so we can see them as the evil devils they are......lmao. You buy what ever they want to feed you like it is the truth. Why don't you sit down and read a history book or article that is written by some country other than America?? And as far as immigrating, because i am embarrassed to be an American at this time...well then half the country needs to immigrate, because half the country is embarrassed by the crap we as a country are doing. If you want to be in a dictatorship, then you should move else where, because that is not what america is based on.
