Underneath it all.

The simple and shocking truth behind the intense over attention on the middle east is this: Any opportunity to hate Jews will be exploited by those who hate Jews. There are innumerable wars and conflicts in the world every day. They can be read about and seen and are easily accessible. This does not take into account those killed by crime in their own communities worldwide.
The over focus on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is heightened by the irrational and latent anti-Semitism of those who refuse to recognize the difference between good and evil. They are in fact a participant in that same evil, of course. Happily this is not the case with the overwhelming majority of United States citizens who have not wavered in their unequivocal support of Israel. Statistics continue to show an 80% approval rating from Americans towards Israel. Thank God almighty that we do not live in Europe, where anti-Semitism was born and solicited to the Arab world, also brought along by the late motor baron Ford himself. Living is Los Angeles, I continue to see the degree of virulent hatred of Jews everywhere around me. One simply need read the comments section on this same issue in the toilet paper known as the LA Times. Thank God for Israel.

That stretch of land is very important and cannot be over emphasized. I wish it was as simple as black and white. You have Hamas who are known terrorist. Then you have the people of Palestine that just want to live and breath in their homeland.

Then you have Israel that is the chosen people from God. The Bible clearly states the boundaries of Israel. I wish King Solomon was here to solve this dilemma.

I don't know all the details, which I'm sure you'll point out, but why couldn't Israel have helped Abbas and get a Palestinian state set up? Is Abbas some kind of known terrorist? Apparently, as head of the Palestinian Authority, he was in negotiations with Israel and the Bush administration - as in, us, our guys. With Abbas having no legitimacy and delivering nothing to his people, all that does is leave a void for a bunch of terrorists to exert their influence - like Hamas. How pitiful it is that a terrorist organization such as this could have the influence they do (Dude, they're not even Hezbollah.) Call them animals all you want but in their minds, they're fighting for their desperate people. What a complete and total disaster and failure on all sides. Apparently Fatah is rooting for Hamas' destruction. It's even beyond the way you think about it, Tony Funky. No matter how right and righteous you are, Tony, it doesn't change the fact that the obliterate Arabs approach doesn't work just like the obliterate Jews approach doesn't work. And how rude of you to sling the anti-semite card so willy nilly. As if there's some wave of anti-semitism in America. What a bunch of horseshit on your part. Americans are trying to figure out what the fuck they can do to help Israel. Period. We help Israel by our actions not by how gnarly and pro-Israel we can sound. We're Americans, that's what we do. Hopefully, between the change that's in the air and the change that's got to happen, the situation can be resolved without a full blown war. So far only 4 have been killed during the ground assault which doesn't sound like a full ground assault, maybe I'm wrong. But the old way, just isn't working. Bring in the new. I track the media pretty damn close and I read the L.A. Times today (Sunday) And maybe I'll have to read it twice, or maybe I missed Saturday (I was out of town) but you sound hysterical. Maybe you could instead suggest a constructive, realistic answer. I'd be more than interested.

Sorry, Forky, you didn't say there was an increase in anti semitism in America but I would assert that there's not a new wave of it world wide, either. I still do think it's an overreaction on your part as it relates to the L.A. Times. Seriously, what do you think an answer is and what are your hopes as far as a new administration here?

The complete destruction of Hamas.

please read my comments to Gerald Ollison in the comments section of my blog located above. Thank you, the management.

And by the way, Abbas was the only real hope for the beginning of negotiations with Israel, but Hamas seeks only to destroy Israel. PERIOD. Once Hamas is removed, or damaged to a minimum, hopefully Hilary can resume real negotiations. It cannot happen with Hamas.
