Can anyone name one thing this "ally" has ever done for the U.S.? They are an arrogant little shiat of a country, full of hubris on the grant that we will give them unconditional financial support and moral authority. It is literally true that Israel could announce tomorrow that they are intentionally targeting schools with the purpose of killing as many Palestinian children as possible, and not one prominent American politician would criticize them. So let me say it then: fark Israel. You exist because Christians in this country want you in place to bring about Apocalypse as described in the Book of Revelations. It's a macabre absurdity!

So when the "Iron Dome" fails to intercept a nasty missile, is the President and Congress going to take the credit for too much faith being placed into that technology?

unlikely: Most ANTI ISRAEL president EVAR.


Well it is kind of strange that Obama didn't make phone calls to anyone over the current conflict while Hamas was lobbing rockets into Israel daily. He waited until Israel finally responded and then he got on the phone with leadership from both sides to stop the violence.

Party Boy: Look, just like thread 3131460 when you were very angry when I (correctly, I'll add) was pointing out how it was incorrect that the Palestinians weren't making talks for all of Jerusalem, this is a figure that is wrong by more than half.

I've pointed it out, and you have the nerve to jump down my throat, again?



1) That was in 07! Wow you need a life
2) I never got really angry! I didn't even get anywhere near angry. I was talking about using Bono as a human projectile, and asking if I could start posting IDF girls
3) You "pointing out how I was incorrect" was saying "well Abbas never said it himself so it doesn't count" Then you got huffy and took your ball and went home

And 07?! So are you saying I was right about everything we discussed since then? Is that why you had to go back to 07 it find one single example where you think you could make an argument you where right?! oh that's rich.

And thanks for the trip down memory lane!

I forgot this joke, so I going to start using it again

cman: Finally an article about Obama and Israel gets greened (unless I have missed one)

The left wing has herped and derped for days now about the evil right and their support of Israel while not saying a damn thing about Obama and his support of their actions. It will finally be nice to see the fark left take up the cause and bash the president


OK, fark Obama for his unconditional support of Israel. I'm not slaven to any party politic. I go on the issues. I happen to vote Democrat because they represent more of my issues than the GOP, but they are both way off on this one. Support for Israel is nothing more than institutionalized Christianity.

vygramul: Magorn: I_C_Weener: Over 8000 rockets had been fired into Israel over the last 4 years.  I'm pretty sure that Israel is justified in Iron Dome, Dome Kun and anyother thing they want to do right now.

Look the Iron Dome is a great idea, but releasing this guy civilian populations in Gaza?:

Diogenes: Isn't the idea of rockets not being able to strike Israel one of the events leading up to the Rapture? I seem to remember that from the first book of Left Behind.

/read the series on a whim


Nope. In the book Israel is being bombed from jet fighters. Suddenly God intervenes and the planes explode and go down. They land in the streets and fields, but Israel's population makes it out unscathed.

2012-11-19 02:37:45 PM
so we gave them this awesome missile defense but the rockets are the main justification for bombing the crap out of gaza ?

This doesn't compute. Either it works and is awesome so no need for Israel to launch attacks in to gaza or it doesn't work and there should be no praise for the US giving the Israelis junk defense weapons and they have a reason to go in to gaza.

if this article is to be believed it is suggesting that the rocket attacks aren't that big of an issue as they have the "Iron Dome" so that would mean the Israeli response is yet again disproportionate and it really isn't a direct result of said rocket attacks.

You're forgetting about good old WWII guilt. On the whole though, I actually agree. Israel is the most worthless 'ally' have. Sure, we have some who do us no good, but Israel actually does us negative. It's a morass that we will never escape out of.

Name me one point in history that the Jewish people have actually been able to live at peace with their neighbors, no matter who those neighbors might be. Might be time for them to realize that a good bit of the problem is them, and get over the martyr/victim complex.

I think it is important to remember that while such a missile shield might work over a small geographical area against less than sophisticated missiles and mortars, deploying such a system over the vast length and breadth of America would be infeasible, to say the least.

Even having it over our major population centers would be a monumental task.

Oh, and call me if they GOP gives Obama credit for that or pulls he's just doing what Bush had laid the groundwork for.

Those were back in the days when it was cool to link "disconnected" Nazi pictures to posts. You know, like your reply to mine.

At any rate, are you up to giving your outrage to the guy giving wrong figures? Are you going to keep trying to keep trying to jump down my throat?

Are you going to similarly show outrage to the Israeli government for claim to all of Jerusalem - and working towards that goal with settlement expansion?

Well see.

It works about half the time, so there are still plenty getting through.

Besides, I'm not really sure that's the issue. If some guy shot you but it didn't get through your bulletproof vest, does that mean you're not going to press charges and he can keep doing it?

Quassam rockets


ID may kickbutt but it's not cost effective. You're using a $100 million integrated air defense network with $100,000 missile to intercept a $900 unguided rocket that a group of guys make in the back of a garage.

All Hezbollah/Hamas etc needs to do is keep firing these rockets and Israel will be bleed to financial ruins.

On the plus side, if Hamas keeps firing more rockets, economy of scale insists that the price of the intercepting missiles will go down!
