If Israel were a friend of mine, I'd be telling them they needed some prozac, counselling and a long time to think things over..

...'it's not all bad for the English to find out what it's like'

She's obviously missed the IRA and the Blitz!

How do you sympatise with people who will only allow you to do so if you relinquish all of your critical faculties? It's just am impossible position. Crazy!

Unbelievable. But strangely predictable.

well, that comment of Judy Sharon sums up, IMO, the whole Israeli attitude. They infuriate me!

Imagine the reaction if someone was so openly conteptuous about Israel? Bet we can all recite the script.

Has anyone heard of this forum before? Is it a far right group? littlegreenfootballs

It's utterly illogical and reactionary.

Wikipedia calls it a 'hate site'. This was their take on that.."Since when is potraying the TRUTH about Islamonazoids "hate"?"

Israel have been attacked/threatened for so long politically and militarily that I think they are as a country pretty reactionary and defensive.

However, the pope and the catholic church are in no position to take the higher ground. They failed to condemn hitler and his atrocities against jews, the disabled and gypsies, as well as the various dictators that caused havoc in south america.

In a 1,300-word communique, the Vatican said: "It has not always been possible to follow every attack against Israel with a public declaration of condemnation."

It said one reason for this was that "the attacks on Israel were sometimes followed by immediate Israeli reactions not always compatible with the norms of international law ... It would thus be impossible to condemn the [terrorist operations] and pass over the [Israeli retaliation] in silence".

I wouldn't get into detail about it, but I really like the second paragraph...

Following that argument Vingers no one would be able to contribute to a debate.

And I'm not sure but haven't the Catholic church apoligised for their conduct during the occupations though?
