Comments on who supports Isreal

Reader comment on item: Who Supports Israel[, Jews or Conservatives]?

Submitted by Darwin Scott Stamper (Cayman Islands), Sep 3, 2003 at 11:10

I have always been amazed at liberal jews who have turned their backs on the state of Isreal. I am not jewish, I do read history and I understand why the Isrealis are fighting so hard against militant islam. I have also worked in the middle east and have seen enough of the Islamist culture to know that the arabs hate jews with a passion. They are taught from their mother´s breast to hate jews. This hatred is preached in the mosgues, the schools and in the homes.

We just started this war on terrorism, Isreal has been fighting it for the last 50 years. Islamists hate Americans almost as much as they hate the jews, if we do not support Isreal we may well be fighting this war on terrorism alone. I saw a film about ten years ago that was taken at inside a mosqu in the states and the clegy was preaching hatred for America and openly asking its members to prepare for a holy war against Americans.

This was in a mosque in the US and the members of this religeon had immigrated to this country for a better more proserous life for themselves and their families. Yet they were preaching hatred and destruction for this country. I wish that President Bush had not went public stated that Islam is a religeon of peace, because from where I stand this is not true.

I know that Iam not a writer, Iam just trying to express my views and tell my fellow Americans that we should support Isreal because we are both in the war on terrorism together and if we falter we will die. The rest of the world has already shown their support and have been found wanting.
