Can't the yanks see that by supporting Israel they're making America a terror target as 'Israel's friend'? Don't they mind?
BillRM said: You are known both by who your friends are and who your enemies happen to be and in regard to Israel we have a hell of a lot to be proud of.
For example when Saddam Scudded Israel, Israel wanted to nuke him, but America said "NO!"
This is not a "war", it is a pogrom in a ghetto, the Gaza ghetto is like the Warsaw ghetto, and
Israelis want a "final solution", having apparently forgotten their own history.

● What would you do if a foreign country was occupying your land?
● What does it mean that Israeli cabinet ministers deny Palestine’s right to exist?

It’s no secret that younger Americans do not rely on the nightly news, cable networks or printed newspapers for information in the way many older people do. The internet has opened access to foreign news media, which often has a different take in Israel, and has opened up a stream of links to to first-hand accounts as well as writing by analysts and activists who offer insights and information wilfully ignored by the Bob Schieffers and Sean Hannitys of the world.
There is evidence of a shift in public opinion, mostly generational: a Pew poll this month showed falling support for Israel among younger Americans. Over 65s backed the Jewish state by 60% to just 9% support for the Palestinians. Among young adults, aged 18-29, just 44% were behind Israel with backing for the Palestinians rising to 22%.
As opinion shifts, it will be harder to go on presenting just one side of the story.

The interior ministry said that it was “analysing” its legal options against the Ligue de Défense Juive, which has been accused of provoking pro-Palestinain demonstrators in the Paris area in recent days.
The LDJ, thought to have around 250 members in their early 20s, is a French off-shoot of the American Jewish Defence League, which was placed on the FBI list of terrorist groups 13 years ago. Its website proclaims that it “rejects the myth of the existence of a Palestinian people”.

As Anti-Semitic Violence Escalates and Jewish Businesses Attacked, Jews Flee France
So, of course, France doesn't want Jews to defend themselves.

Hamas Executes 20 Palestinians Who Attended Anti-War Protest For Being “Israeli Collaborators”
Channel 10 reports that 20 Palestinians who participated in an anti-war protest in the Gaza Strip were rounded up by Hamas and summarily executed as alleged Israeli collaborators yesterday.
Reports yesterday indicated that 30 suspected collaborators have been executed by Hamas thus far, but it isn’t clear whether that figure included the 20 anti-war protesters.
