smitty04: Everyone in Israel knows a voter that lives in Florida. If you cut off money to Israel, you would need to cut off the money to Egypt and others. Under the Carter peace agreement, we agreed to pay everyone not to fight.
Porous Horace: What I gathered from that article is that Israel wants the US to at least make a firm statement about Iran.But it's nice to see all the Jew hate, reminds me of why Israel is necessary.
Dr Dreidel: There are lots of non-Jewish Israelis, and plenty of non-Israeli Jews. Even within Israel, the diversity of opinion among Jews is HUGE - from crazy Haredim (even those that aren't repressive) to atheist hippies - so I just see calling the actions of the Israeli government "Jewish actions" as being misleading and likely (and needlessly) inflammatory.
Cythraul [TotalFark]As far as my personal beliefs, hearing fundie Christians talk about how the U.S. needs to protect Israel because it is the site where Jesus comes back, or some other such lunacy, is all I need to make up my mind.
jaybeezey: Does that mean we can also stop giving giving unqualified african-americans gov't jobs as a way to make up for slavery?
Dr Dreidel: Mugato: Porous Horace: But it's nice to see all the Jew hate, reminds me of why Israel is necessary.This took a while. Usually the "anyone who says anything negative about our policies in Israel is an ANTI-SEMITE" shows up before the 5th post.If you say "Jew" when you mean "Israeli", and conflate them in a negative context, what's a poor bagel-eater to think?

karnal: and yet, the majority of Jews in America vote Liberal.
EyeballKid: U.S. to Jews after the Holocaust: "WE ARE SO SORRY FOR WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE HOLOCAUST!! WE TOTES WOULD HAVE MADE IT OVER HERE EARLIER IF ONLY WE'D KNOWN!!! WE'LL FIGHT ANYBODY ELSE WHO WANTS A PIECE OF YOU FOR THE REST OF YOUR EXISTENCE AND GIVE YOU AS MUCH OF OUR MONEY AS YOU WANT JUST SO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO US!!!!"U.S. to African Americans after the Civil War and slavery ended: "F*ck you, n*****r. Get back to work."
Therion: Headso: "The date by which Iran will have nuclear weapons is no longer 10 years from now," a senior official said recently, referring to previous estimates.And Iraq can unleash Weapons Of Mass Destruction that will reach the continental US in forty-five minutes!
Vodka Zombie: Can we please stop sending money to Israel and let them fight their wars alone?
