Reader comment on item: "Jewish" - Not the Same as "Pro-Israel"
in response to reader comment: My Christian upbringing makes me a Christian Zionist !

being supportive of israel and respecting the beautiful and kind teachings of judaism are two different things .
putting aside the religious views you have to admit that the practises of israel towards the palestinians and arabs have been nothing but pure hatred on many occasions:
1- the sabra and shatila massacres of 1982 when palestinian women,men ,children were slaughtered,pregnant womens unborn children were killed .its been 27 years since these masscares and nobody was held accountable or punished for them.
2-the seperation wall that was built to seperate Gaza from the west bank which violates all kinds of humanitarian laws as 85% of the wall is illegal.
3-the unjustified bombardment in Qana lebanon in 1996 and in 2006 wars on southern lebanon which was called an" unfortunate mistake" and left hundreds of lebanese civilians dead.
and the list goes on and on
israel is a country that has violated both Gods and mans laws on earth which is why i could never say that israel represents a holy religion .
Can you honestly say that there is a God that accepts or condones these violations.
