This thread isn't about political/religious/cultural difference in the Middle East.
This thread is about religous-based support for Israel among "American Christians" in the United States. The first three words I wrote on this thread are "Many American Christians..."
Maybe this is the reason you are having trouble understanding.
You are wrong about what I can't acknowledge.... so let me go ahead and acknowledge it again very clearly so you can see.
I acknowledge that the situation in the Middle East is about securing America's interests. I acknowledge that this is responsible for the contradictory foreign policy such as why we sell weaponry to Saudi Arabia and make "such a stink" about Iran.
I agree with you fairly often, Izzy. And I have no problem admitting when I agree with you.
And I don't feel the need to attack your intelligence when I disagree with you (except when I feel your attacks have gone too far). The only real complaint I have about your behavior is the number of times you resort to unprovoked personal attacks merely because someone has a different point of view. I don't like bullying behavior.
This thread is about religious based popular support for Israel, particularly from American Christians. The title of the thread implies that. The initial post imples that.
I believe you are correct in most of your statements about American policy in the Middle East... but I also believe that, as you say, things are complicated and this can be seen through several different lenses.
