interesting analysis. seems that there are parallels between what the professor views as israel's evolving adoption of its 'enemies' characteristics and the united states in its war on the world.

i wonder if someone who disagrees with the assertion that the palestinians have moved toward the center and secularism would respond.

the tom casts are interesting and i wish they were more frequent.

Sorry, his argument makes no sense. I don't care enough to elaborate. Simple fact is that Israel was attacked, they took land in the war, and they are not willing to give up that land. The land in question is less than 10 miles from Tel Aviv. I don't know that anyone in the United States - which collectively wet its pants about supposed threats thousands of miles way - has anything meaningful to say about this issue.

Dwight? The Palestinians took land from Israel? When exactly did this happen Dwight? In fact, this has never ever happened since the Zionists went to Palestine and drove the Arabs from their homes. And Zionists are still driving Palestinians from their homes. Today. Right now. The entire project to build the state of Israel has been one long, drawn-out crime across 6-plus decades.

Israel, young man, has more than 300 attack tanks, thanks to American taxpayers.

Palestinians have 0 attack tanks.

Israel, young man, has more than 300 fighter planes, thanks to American taxpayers.

Palestinians have 0 fighter planes.

It is not a war, it is a one-sided apartheid bludgeon.

Rabbi Dovid Weiss agrees.
