Israel the little satan

Reader comment on item: U.S. to Israel: Do As We Say ...

Submitted by JR (United States), Jul 1, 2003 at 17:15

Israel is always held to a higher standard than any country other than america. It has one voice in the UN, whereas the Muslim world has upwards of 20 and they always vote against israel.
Despite the fact that it won a war, it is the only country that seems to be held accountable for returning occupied land, even though Lebanon is truly occupied to this day and there is nary a word by Muslims. Likewise Israel is held to task for its treatment of Muslims and for denying Muslims rights. Meanwhile Jews can't even set foot in Jordan or most other Muslim countries and Christians can't even own bibles or build churches in many muslim countries. And christians are killed or discriminated against by Muslims with nary a peep.

Israel is held to task for palestinian refugees when all other arab countries refuse to take the refugees in, though Israel was more than willing to take in refugees when Jews had to flee all the arab countries.

Israel can plant olive trees, give back land but "Palestinians" are allowed to deny Israel a right to exist, allowed to have both a legitimate wing and terrorist wing and their leader can earn a Nobel prize while starting an intifada. They are even allowed the luxury of two palestinian states, (one being a terrorist state controlled by Israel's enemy) while Jews aren't even allowed one.

The Muslim world is a disgrace when it comes to civil rights, womens rights, gay rights, minority rights, religious tolerance, civil order and stable govt. Yet its all the Jews fault. Always has been and always will be. The Muslim world is incapable of looking at itself critically (notice all those critical of Islam being targeted for death) and will continue its affront on humanity while there is a middle east.

America is being a great hypocrite in denying Israel a right to target Hamas. It thinks its stabilizing the situation but is only chastising its ally for doing what any country would do when it is being beset by rabid dogs who seek nothing but that country's destruction.
