Response to JDPriestly (Reply #24)

50. The criticism of Israel is about

its leaders and those complicit with them in what Israel has long been doing to the Palestinians, Lebanese and others in its immediate region. Israeli actions against Palestinians are analogous to Germany/Europe's against Jews in WWII. The victims have become the victimizers with the aid of US dollars and military support and the glaring habit of the US to castigate any Arab nation that fails to abide by UN sanctions while giving Israel a pass when it does likewise and even when it kills US citizens (e.g. Rachel Corie, Furkan Dogan).

Isreal's reactions to Hamas are frequently on the level of America's Shock & Awe against Iraq: overblown with considerable collateral damage that only seeds further hatred and kills the innocent.

Hamas like Al-Queda may be terrrorist but it is not a nation or state; and bombing an area to smithereens to get a cell or group has yet to yield any lasting coexistence, much less peace.

Criticism of Israel is not anti-semitic; it's anti-injustice. And Israel is the bully of the Middle East
