Tinoire,

If we cut off all aid to Isreal, ESPECIALLY military aid, the country will be wiped out. Or at least engaged in a perpetual state of violent self-defense.

The country is surrounded by nothing but enemies who, for centuries, have fought, killed, and terrorized for its land for political and religious reasons. If we allow the terrorists and other enemies to do this, we might as well say "we give up - you win!" Indeed, we almost have as much at stake in Israel as the country's innocent civilians do.

European countries and the EU hate Israel for illogical reasons. Recently the EU claimed Israel was the "greatest threat to world peace," even though Israel has never launched an attack outside of its own borders. These European countries compose much of the UN, and if we agree with the UN's stances regarding Israel, we too are falling prey to senseless racism.

Israel is very much at fault for much of the violence coming about. But I for one don't blame them for acting drastically. Over the history of the world the people of this land have been destroyed, killed, and persecuted. Today, their country is surrounded by enemies. And now Muslims within their own borders want to carve Israel's land up. They're desperate, and are acting like it.

Israel isn't completely innocent in all this, and neither are we, but they still deserve our support.
