    Israel is not always right but in the eyes of the US government Israel is never wrong.
    Israel is out testing ground for cluster bombs, homicide helicopters plus all kinds of tanks and automatic weapons, what is wrong with that?
    I can safely predict that by the end of the Obama administration’s first term, Israel and the Jewish lobby and its members in congress will involve us in a war with Iran.
    The seeds are being sown now with the new Israeli elections.

    If McKinney is involved, you can be sure anything she says is a lie. She's the one who assaulted a Capitol policeman when he wanted to see her ID before letting her enter the Capitol. The woman is a nut job.

    Can we say that someone is ALWAYS right? If not, how come we say that Israel is always right? When It comes to the Israel we have a different standard of logic and fairness. Why is this? Is it because of the Jewish Lobby in America or is it because the media will call anyone anti-Semitic who does not believe that Israel is ALWAYS right?

    Civility is a two way street. Life is too short for violence and wars. Everyone wants peace. How will we have peace in a conflict in which one party thinks they are ALWAYS right, because then the other party is ALWAYS wrong and the conflict goes on.

    Why doesn't Israel allow the U.N to observe the situation on ground. Why isn't Israel allowing International reporters to enter Gaza? Why is there so much censorship? Is it because we can be fed a lopsided and distorted image endlessly? God forbid people start making up their own minds about this issue and start asking questions. I wonder if " You are an anti-Semite" will do as an answer for every question asked!

    the knew from the good beginning there is a blockade; the Israelis told them they cannot come and they still insisted! Now they blame the Israelis; some people are just plain dumb
