Let me be quite clear. I think Israel is a rogue state.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Lithos (a host of the Israel/Palestine group).

I am in support of BDS against Israel. It is quite clear that Israel is invading Palestine in opposition to international law. Israelis are taking over Palestinian land in opposition to international law. They are destroying people's homes and livelihoods.

How is that okay?

3. Agreed. We continue to get reports of houses bulldozed and . . .

groves dug up by encroaching settlers. And the destruction in Gaza, well, it may as well have been Soweto.

But brace yourself, the Netanyahu/apartheid apologists will soon be slamming this OP of yours.

5. What does "rogue state" mean where nothing is okay -- or even sane?

Nothing is okay. Nothing is even sane on the Middle Eastern dirt.

If I had my druthers, hell, I'd grant blanket U.S. citizenship to all Israelis, and leave it to the generation putting their kids on school buses to decide as to whether to continue the Israeli endeavor, or high-tail it to the U.S. My guess is that most, over time, would choose the U.S. Let the hard core Zionists decide, then, whether to stick it out, or move to where the grand-kids are. In time, the whole problem would diminish, and most Israeli people would be where they should have been all along -- the U.S.

We moved the Egyptian statuary to high ground out of the Aswan Valley. We could move the Wailing Wall, and whatever else is essential to the heart of Israel to a site of their choosing out West. The U.S. Government controls more than half of Nevada. We could create New Tel Aviv out there and have ten million acres to spare. THAT is sane. But will it be done -- no. Because it wouldn't be that particular piece of Middle Eastern dirt -- which is insane. As I said, nothing is okay.
