Amazingly, the War Street Journal (of all things) if finally reporting accurately the ‘events’ in the Middle East: Israel is committing war crimes.

Show him no pity. You must purge from Israel the guilt of shedding innocent blood, so that it may go well with you. ~ Deuteronomy 19:13

  1. why you are so virulently anti-Israel I have always found this odd. Guess it is some weird mix of your anti-war beliefs (understandbly from your gulf war experiences) and Covenant theology. When in doubt, I am going to side with Israel, they should have never yieldeed land to the Palestinians and should have keep land they won in their many wars.

  2. @Jackasic: It is because they have no claim to the land–the Palestinians lived there for thousands of years until the current occupants took it from them illegally (with the help of the United Nations) in 1948.

    In addition, the Israelis mistreat the Palestinians daily in their unlawful seiges and draconian ‘security measures.’ Add in that they have waged multiple illegal and disproportionate wars and you have a pretty good recipe for dislike.

    I am not excusing the many illegal acts undertaken by the various Palestinian groups. However, you cannot understand WHY they do certain things without fully grasping what Israel does to them.

    I would ask you why you support Israel. At the very least, I would advocate that we take a policy of neutrality in the region. Here’s a novel idea: Not everything is our business.

    How can you excuse what Israel does to the Palestinians? (Notwithstanding the glowing adulation of the former that emits from Fox News and the Falwell/ Hagee wing of Christendom.)
