  • Well, I don't think that's the reason they're mad at us, I'd think they are more pissed off for us sticking our nose where it doesn't belong, and trying to enforce OUR way of living on them... But other than that, I don't believe the US should be in bed with Israel either. That's a touchy subject though, and is bound to stir up some drama. Personally, I believe Israel definitely bears some responsibility for the unrest in that part of the world, and is most DEFINITELY getting "preferential treatment", in spite of some very wrong things they're guilty of. But again, that's just my opinion...

  • I'll answer this in the manner in which I view the issue you are referancing.

    The US government supports Israel and the Israeli government because the US government view is as being in our best interst.. strategically, and also in regards to having a "friend" or influence in the ME.

    My personal opinion is.. This does cause us more trouble than it's worth. And it cost us nearly $15 Billion a year in monetary and military aid. What we get in return is not worth the commitment that has been made nor the deals that have been set up.

    It's all about politics, access to resources, control of resources and political influence in specific regions of the world.. Nothing more. Nothing less. People have made the US support of Israel into a religious issue for propaganda and support purposes.

  • Those who bless Israel will be blessed, those that do not will be cursed. This is biblical.
    If we ever turn against Israel.. it will because nasty. It will look good at first but then turn real fast.
    We cannot not support Israel.. our very lives depend on it.
    The reason muslims hate us is because of our support for Israel.
    The peace thing going on right now has a lot of Christians all over the world watching the USA. Basically Hillary Clinton can be a catalyst in the future of America and Israel!

  • We should all look after each other. I'm not Jewish, but they are God's people. In the end many of the Jewish will convert to Christianity. We shouldn't be divided by religion, race, or creed. THAT'S why WE should look after EACH OTHER!
