An Ominous Double Standard

While Obama cracks the whip on Iran, Israel's nuclear arsenal grows ever more sophisticated.

While the US and the UN contemplate imposing harsh sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program, Israel continues to maintain a not-so-secret nuclear weapons plant at Dimona. Take a 3D tour ...

Some of the anti-israel stuff I'm hearing on here is shocking. Do your research. Israel has and will always be the homeland for the Jews. Zionism is not a new thing or something that came about after the holocaust. In fact, the first waves of mass Jewish immigration in RECENT history, Jews were kicked out and have returned to zion many times throughout the ages, was in the late 1800's., well before hitler.

Israel has NEVER launched a preemptive strike on any nation. Their army is called the Israeli DEFENSE force. It is not in place to nuke arab countries. THEY WOULD NEVER DO THAT. It's for their own protection and judging by the actions of Iran's maniacle leader and his nuclear aspirations, Israel needs all the weapons is can get it's hands on, FOR DEFENSIVE PURPOSES.

Judaism was around BEFORE islam and christianity. It is from the old testament, otherwise known as the Torah, where you even derive your religions from. JESUS WAS JEWISH! HE WAS A RABBI from bethlehem, a town in the west bank. Jews are the children of zion, aka present day israel, and this is where they belong. There has never been a time when Jews didn't live in Jerusalem.

THESE ARE FACTS PEOPLE! DON"T GET SUCKED IN BY THESE LIES.
SALAM SHALOM PEACE

A 1918 statement by the President of the US that remains valid
“The settlement of every question, whether of territory, of sovereignty, of economic arrangement, or political relationship, rests upon the basis of the free acceptance of that settlement by the people immediately concerned, and not upon the basis of the material interest or advantage of any other nation or people which may desire a different settlement for the sake of its own exterior influence or mastery. If that principle is to rule, and so the wishes of Palestine’s population are to be decisive as to what is to be done with Palestine, then it is to be remembered that the non-Jewish population of Palestine – nearly nine-tenths of the whole – are emphatically against the entire Zionist program. The tables show that there was no one thing upon which the population of Palestine were more agreed upon than this. To subject a people so minded to unlimited Jewish immigration, and to steady financial and social pressure to surrender the land, would be a gross violation of the principle just quoted, and of the People’s rights, though it is kept within the forms of law.”
(President Woodrow Wilson's speech on Independence Day July 4, 1918)

The problem with your logic and idealism is that you're assuming that everyone commenting on here actually believes in a religion or even a god.

I could care less which character was a rabbi and which piece of fiction was written first. Israel's existance is THE biggest dividing factor on earth today. The people that occupy and run that piece of land are some of the most sinister and manipulative bunch and need to be done away with. Just because Israel puts a religious symbol on their flag, such as the star of David, doesn't mean they are a peaceful people with good intentions. My guess is that it probably just adds to the tension.

If the world ever expects to obtain 'peace' the only way I can EVER see this happening is by believing in humanity itself. Not some made up fictional, limiting, elitist, wierd set of beliefs in something that has zero tangibility and is open to speculation and horrendous interpretation. That means giving up judaism, christianity, islam, wailing walls, crucifixes, pedophilia and all the other perverted practices.... and just living your life.

Or if you have such a hard time with that believe in Santa Claus or Mickey Mouse. There's no difference.

Israel has outlived itself. Time to fire up the bulldozers and put in a parking lot.

nicely put

for some who are still hesitant as to wether organised religions' incalcation of deities has ever been beneficial for post-tribal societies:
