You don't address the core of the problem. For one, I do not use American TV much as any source of truth for news, etc. I watch very little TV at all. I watch the history channel from time to time & that is about it . Do not make the mistake of thinking I belong to the mis-informed masses of this country.
I have told you at least twice that I have been involved with watching national and international events before for well over a half a century. I learned a long time ago where to get the truth, when I was being fed baloney, or when I was purposely being deceived. It has been an intense life time of sorting through much garbage and using my own sense from that life time to find truth.
I generally don't have a problem with a nation's populations until one approaches Islam. You keep side stepping or evading the real issues I bring up. The general population everywhere has little control over their governments. When you mix Islam with that government, you have a cowed populace that doesn't dare challenge any truth of its religious government . That they are "nice"people when confronted with a military presence is the actual problem.
"NIce" doesn't necessarily mean "moral courage", and the response of "nice" populations, especially islamic, has been to cower before their own radicals. Muslims in the U.S. contribute heavily through any means possible including "charities that go help "Muslims in need" which usually get strained through militant groups. Every Islamic move in history has been pre-ceded by a "nice" population that usually fled the consequences of their own nations leaders - countries dominated by Islam. The "nice" folks set up a "peaceful" front that is always followed by the militants who come in and re-educate the flock on the Islamic principles that the latter part of the Quran written by Muhammad in the latter part of his life (the militant part) is the one that replaces & actually beomes the more "correct".
You keep re-ferring to the "few" causing the most trouble in the world. That's beside the point. Those "few" dominate and control all Islam while the "majority" fall into place when the militants infest their mosques.
Hitler had a "nice" population, too. The problem was that the "good folk" in Nazi Germany had long ago reliquished control. It is a dominant pattern repeated in every islamic country. They ruin their own and then turn their backs when their own poor and destitute escape to some place where they can freely live and raise families unmolested by Imams that ruin the fabric of their societies. And, as before, the militants follow eventually and infest yet another country. Like the parasites they are, they ruin one country after another. When there s no longer someone else's blood to suck on, they will obliterate themselves. Oh, that sounds like an ideal plan that could be set up by God's enemy, Satan. What a marvelous plan to destroy the mankind that od succors..
As for Israel, you seem to be strangely quiet along with the rest of the world while HAMAS, the PLO, and Hezbullah do anything they like to Israel. When Israel then tries to defend itself, the world suddenly takes notice and then goes bananas against Israel. Your brand of popular-think that Israel should defend itself "moderately" has the same consequences as the Viet Nam and Iraq Wars. Fight not only with all the rules set up by civilized countries, but also, limit your ability to fully respond. In other words, limit your capabilities to the extent that your enemy, who obeys no rules, can defeat you.
Have you noticed per chance that your own info is a little one sided? HAMAS does everything it can to purposely draw fire from Israel to its own civilian populations and purposely targets Israeli civilian populations. It is beyond asinity that I even have to point these things out, as the majority of the world's popular Liberal dominated news services report in ways that heavily favor the lie of all terrorist factions.
The deceitful way the Muslim factions reported to western news services that Lebanon had just a little "infighting" amongst Muslim factions a few years ago, was a bald faced and blatant lie. The once Christian nation that had built the educational and medical institutions of that country invited the minority Muslims to avail themselves of the infrastructure the Christians had built. They even allowed the Palestinians to come into their country to escape the results of their own PLO attacks against Israel. Of course the PLO trooped right on in with them. Hezbullah trooped on in, too. Pretty soon the minority Muslims who belonged to the established military in Lebanon started assassinating Christian officers and taking over military bases. The small Christian represented military that was left consisted of a small continent that esaped upon learning of the under the table goings on of all the Muslims in their country. This was one of the "factions" that the Muslims were feeding to the press as an "islamic" squawble. A blatant lie and cover-up of what was really going on.
It wasn't long before Muslims were stopping cars everywhere and machine-gunning any cars that had people in it with Christian "ids". This was backed by the "nice folk" who just kind of vegged during the Christian reign and passed for the most part on the free educations being offered them.
I could go on and on about how the Christians in that country finally found out the lie of what they previously believed about israels. Even they had bought all the garbage about Israel's slaughtering babies and raping women. This is the pattern of islam. Back-stabbing those who feed them and introducing their infestation of a religion to every nation they go into which is soon followed inevitably by the militants.
Every nation dominated by Islam has been fed from something besides their own effort, blood, sweat, and tears. Israel has taken a worthless spit of desert land hundreds of times smaller than most Muslim nations and turned it into a thriving metropolis from real effort and sweat. Meanwhile the Muslim countries who allied themselves with Hitler in World War II, have had trillions of dollars worth of oil dumped into their laps and put out miniscule effort to become wealthy beyond all imagining.
The Arab nations have hundreds of millions of square miles of empty land that they could have given to the Palestinians a long time ago. Israel invited the Palestinians to join in with them back in 1948 with full citizenship rights and all properties and jobs intact. The Palestinians chose to do otherwise. The few that stayed, thank their lucky stars and pray to Allah that their Palestinian brothers across the borders never achieve their aims.
If it seems like I'm repeating myself ,Keith, it's because I repeatedly get no answers from you of any substance. You evade, side-step, and balatantly ignore much of what I give you, so I re-present it. It seems you repeatedly "miss" the main thrust of all my questions while picking out alternate areas to divert attention away from the fact you have no answers to my questions worthy of responding with.
