I never understood our overzealous support for Israel either. Maybe I an not up to speed on world politics, geography and the politically correct thing to do. One thing that always sticks in my mind is the "6 day war" (Is that what it was called?) It sounds like it was an Israeli occupation of Palestinian land or in other words, Israel (funded by the US) stole land from Palestine.

Frank, with all due respect, I suggest you pick up a history book then.

May 14, 1967: President Nasser of Egypt demands a withdrawl of UN forces, who had been there since 1957 as a protector to Israel, from the Sinai peninsula, and the UN obeys.  The US and Great Britain are unable to stop this.

May 15, 1967: Three Egyptian army divisions and 600 tanks are deployed in the Sinai.

May 17, 1967: Voice of the Arabs radio program out of Cairo broadcasts "All Egypt is prepared to plung into total war which will put an end to Israel."

May 18, 1967: Voice of the Arabs announces "As of today, there no longer exists an international emergency force to protect Israel. We shall exercise patience no more. We shall not complain any more to the UN about Israel. The sole method we shall apply against Israel is a total war which will result in the extermination of Zionist existence."

On this same day, President Nasser announces a blockade of the Straits of Tiran in the Red Sea, cutting off Israel from the sea.  Israel considered this an act of war.

May 20, 1967: Syria's Defense Minister Havez el-Assad says: "Our forces are now ready not only to repulse the aggression but to initiate the act of liberation itself, and to explode the Zionist presence in the Arab homeland. The Syrian army, with its finger on the trigger, is united ..."

May 27, 1967: May 27: Nasser: "Our basic objection will be the destruction of Israel. The Arab people want to fight."

May 30, 1967: Nasser : "The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel."

May 30, 1967: King Hussein of Jordan signs a five year mutual defense pact with Egypt and immediately sets up a joint command.

May 31, 1967: Egyptian newspaper Al Akhbar reports: "Under terms of the military agreement signed with Jordan, Jordanian artillery, co-ordinated with the forces of Egypt and Syria, is in a position to cut Israel in two ..."

On that same day, Iraqi President Rahman Aref announces "This is our opportunity to wipe out the ignominy which has been with us since 1948. Our goal is clear--to wipe Israel off the map."

June 4, 1967: Iraq joins Nasser's military alliance against Israel.

Link Posted: 6/13/2002 4:31:14 PM EDT
June 5, 1967: Sensing impending doom the Isreali air force catches the Egyptians sleeping and destroys most of their air force before their planes can leave the ground.

June 6, 1967: Israel does the same to Syria's air force.  This would not have been successful, except for Egypt's inabiliy to admit defeat, as they announced that they were destroying the Israeli forces over the radio.  This proved to be the undoing of Syria and Jordan's air forces.

After these decisive victories, there was little left for Israel's enemies to do.  The Arab countries had been so sure of victory that they made it clear what their intentions were, thinking it would be impossible for Israel to withstand their assault.  Fortunately they were wrong, and the Six Days War is considered to be one of the most masterful pre-emptive strikes in history.  So, I do not fault Israel for taking lands from those who wished to destroy her after they lost the battle.  It should also be noted that Israel has given some of those lands back over the years.  That is why Egypt and Israel have diplomatic relations today.

I try to look at the facts. The fact's are that Israel invaded Palistine "trippling in size in 6 days due its brilliant military victory" according to your account. I just wonder which came first? The chicken or the egg? Why where the armies of Egypt, Syria and Jordan brought to full alert and mobilized on Israels borders? Was it to prevent an Israeli invasion? I am here to learn more about what happened. I try to see things with an open mind, your comment about learning my facts from a Neo-Nazi are out of line.

They didn't invade Palestine.  They invaded lands occupied by Jordan, Egyp, Syria, and Iraq, which had all been carved out of the lands of the Ottoman Empire, collectively known by the British as Palestine, after World War II.  Israel was the last of these to be carved out of what was left of the land.  It shold also bear mentioning that Muslims and Jews lived together in that area of the world for over four centuries during the rule of the Ottoman Turks and well into British rule until Muslims clerics incited violence by spreading the rumor that Jews were planning to destroy Al Aqsa mosque.  And the modern day violence between the two groups has been going on since.  Also of note is that many Muslims died at Muslim hands during this time as well.

Simple question.  What conflict have we been involved in that Israel provided troops and/or supplies in any way whatsoever?

As far as that goes, what has Israel ever done for the US?  Wait...they share intel, right?  How nice of them to provide intel on Iraq while our soldiers(and many other nation's soldiers) did the fighting and dying.  

For people who hold the military in such high regard you certainly don't seem to mind that our alliance with Israel seems to be remarkably one sided...at least when it comes to American soldiers dying, that is.

Canada and Japan's militaries aren't busy suppressing and rooting out terrorists operating within their own borders, who have been killing their citizens on at least a monthly basis for 20 months.  Israel's is.

Canada and Japan aren't surrounded on all sides by hostile countries which have invaded their country 4 times in the last 50 years.  Israel is.  Israel can't afford to let down their guard or divert any military power.

Then there's the fear that having the Israelis help us would alienate every muslim country from us in the war.  

So that's why Israel isn't in Afghanistan. Thanks Canada and UK for being there.

Thanx I'll take your .02 cents, send it to E-T-H and let him decide where it goes.

The votes are held in the US House of Representatives and the US Senate, it's called the budget. The President also signs off on the budget once it is approved by the legislative branch.

In the Constitution I have the Right to "Keep and arm bears". So no I don't care how many other people don't like armed bears, I have a RIGHT to do it. [;)] Wait I meant "Keep and bear arms".

The same US Constitution sets up the US government structure. Currently the US Reps. ans US Senators are directly elected by popular vote in their respective districts. The Prsesident is indirectly elected by the People through the Electoral College.

You can probably vote for all those representatives, and probably a whole bunch of State and local representatives as well. That is where your 2 cents is.

Could it be that is partially because more people in that area wish to support Israel than don't wish to support Israel??

Check the Constitution or any other document listing "Rights". None of them will say life is fair. Just because you don't like how something is going doesn't make it unfair, and even if it is unfair so what?

Let's review, the citizens of the US get to elect representative that get to decide on the day to day operations of the goverenment. Those reps., elected by the people as the "people's reps". have decided to support Israel.

Wrong. Support for Israel, at the current level or any level has NEVER been on any referendum. The Congress and the President ASS-U-ME that the majority supports Israel just as he ASS-U-MEs that the people of this country are willing to surrender freedoms hard fought by our forfathers for temporary illusions of security.

I agree that we should not cut off all support for Israel completely, after all we will want/need to use them at some point if we really need to launch a major war with a country in the area.

But FIVE BILLION DOLLARS a year in peacetime? There's no Arab threat out there that will cost even more than $500 million per year to defend against! There's no more Soviet Union handing out guns, tanks, and planes to whoever wanted to kill allies of the US; Russia won't sell to anyone unless they pay up front in cash, they're no fools. The Arabs are so weak militarily that they have to blow themselves up because nothing else they can fire at Israel will even dent their armor. Even in wartime what could possibly justify FIVE BILLION DOLLARS a year in aid to such a tiny country with minimal miltary threats?

I've agreed with most of your points here, but this one is lacking in fact. Israel didn't attack Iraq because we told them not to. In fact Iraq Scud-bombed parts of Israel and we asked them not to retaliate as it might fracture the anti-Iraq Arab coalition (which was Saddam's intention by attacking Israel). The multi-billions actually were worth it that year. (The Jews trotted out the nukes after the Scud attacks but did not fire them. Iraq didn't quite realize what kind of fire they were playing with.)

Except for the restraint above and bits of intelligence... there's nothing else they give us in return, except more and more reasons for Arabs to hate us for supporting them. The early 80s attack on the Iraqi nuclear reactor, while helping us during the Gulf "War", was out of their own interests. Oh there's little stuff here and there like what ilikelegs has posted about "miltary cooperation", but we get far more from Britain and it doesn't cost $5 billion dollars a year.

Gun Control: A Jewish Look
by Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz

"What does Jewish law (halacha) have to say about this issue?...In the Talmud there are specific regulations that resemble gun control...[b]The Talmud prohibits someone from selling offensive weapons to idol worshippers and suspected criminals (Avodah Zarah 15b; YD 151:5-6). The rule against selling to idol worshippers is based on an assumption that the idol worshippers will use them against Jews;[/b] however, if the Jews are allied with the idol worshippers, it is permitted to sell them arms... [b]This halacha requires that the buyers of firearms be carefully screened, and resembles in many ways laws requiring a national registry of gun and rifle owners.[/b]"

[url]ajcongress.org/pages/RELS2000/DEC_2000/dec00_04.htm[/url]

AJCONGRESS SAYS THAT SHOOTINGS IN BOSTON AREA SEND
MESSAGE TO BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND NEW CONGRESS
THAT GUN CONTROL MUST BE HIGH ON AGENDA FOR 2001

"When a gunman comes equipped for action with an AK-47 semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and a semi-automatic handgun, as happened today, the rote arguments of the gun lobby against registration, licensing and other means of effective enforcement are clearly shown to be empty of merit and meaning. Today's tragedy is proof that present controls are inadequate. If we seriously intend to prevent this kind of violent trauma, better ways must be found to keep such an arsenal from landing in the hands of those might kill."

"As part of that effort, the American Jewish Congress' STOP THE GUNS: PROTECT OUR KIDS campaign to secure one million petition signatures demanding that Congress enact tough legislation providing for the licensing and registration of guns will continue in the year ahead. We will not cease reminding the Congress that until these steps are taken, Washington will have failed in its obligation to protect the American people from the heartbreak of sudden and unexpected violence."

[url]ajcongress.org/pages/RELS2000/JAN_2000/jan00_07.htm[/url]

"Licensing of gun owners is an important first step toward stemming the tide of gun violence which is sweeping the nation. While the President's proposal is right on target, we continue to believe that registration of all guns, not merely licensing of owners, is necessary. America needs a data base which will allow law enforcement officials to track weapons used in violent crimes."

Even if all those are true, AND even if there is any value in them, they are ALL examples of foreign entaglements, which G. Washington listed as a sure way to destroy a Republic (and gee!!! Look, our repiublic IS INDEED being destroyed today. Maybe there's a correlation there??? Maybe not, but maybe. The scary thing is some people seem unwilling to look at any possible correlation, they only have agenda to guide their thoughts. Unless we llok for correlation, well NEVER be able to investigate causality)  and EXTRA - Constitutional involvments in matters we should NOT be involved in.

Good people can differ on those matters. I think in the future I'll refrain from dogmatic statements EXCEPT in matters of Scriptural interpretation, and the myriad of comments Scripture makes on "Israel" today.

So many people think its just a oneway street

Some of the other countries we have helped
truly have not given anything in return.
I will alway think of Israel as a freind to the US.
But I understand you think more along the lines

But if we are ever attacked again, with this thinking,
can you expect any nation to help if we need it.
That is if we actually practice this policy through

Well, the entire premise of the [b]limited [/b]isoaltionism (roughly defined as naked SELF interest by the US) I support is that with a free market system, and a political system that KEEPS the wealth we generate here, in this country, we'll be so strong militarily and economically that we won't NEED other countries. No one would DARE attack us.

The enriched citizens can then send money anywhere they want in the world, rather than having an abusive federal gov't STEAL it from them, and send it somewhere else. One SIMPLE illustration is Jewish peoples US tax dollars have flowed to Arab countries for some thiry years now. THAT IS WRONG. And a myriad of other examples of that IMMORAL redistribution of the wealth have been brought on by foreign entanglements.

In reality, the very foreign involvments you seem to favor are the CAUSE of FORCING Jewish US taxpayers to fund Arab gov'ts to kill Jews.

And yer surprised that people over there hate us????

THIS is EXACTLY what Washingtons Farewell address warned about. I posted it recently in this forum. Do a search on my usermane. You OWE yourself a reading of it.

I post quotes DIRECTLY from the American Jewish Congress and a Rabbi pertaining to gun control and I am a "real Jew hater" now? That is a good laugh. Why would I be associating with Jews everyday if I hate them so much as you claim.

Here where I stand, plain and simple:

Israel: No more foreign aid to them or any other country for that matter. The annual $5 billion can be spent on OUR veterans instead of helping perpetuate a centuries old holy war.

Jews: I don't care what religion you want to practice. Just don't go and try to violate my Constitutional Rights because "it is the word of god" or try to use "vicitm" status, like the ADL/SPLC continually does.

And I have 5 words for you: Most Jews Are Anti-Gun. JPFO is a great organization but they are a tiny minority of "American" Jews. Whereever you have lots of Jews you have gun control. It's a fact.
