"Considering they so rarely do this, we're obviously not getting what we paid for. Cut off all aid to the ME."

You got the Peace Signing between Arafat and Rabin on the White House lawn. Give 3 Billion a year to the Palestinians, like you do to Israelis, and you will get more for your money.

"Oh, please. They are "occupied and oppressed" purely for political purposes to serve the Arab states."

-- So now it is the Palestinians ' wish to be occupied and oppressed. Is that what you are saying?

"Fine with me. End all aid to them. I don't work for a living to see so much of my money be given to people who hate me and my entire civilization."

That, sir, is your prerogative.

"I don't think you know what a real war looks like. Now that the "Palestinians" have shown what their true desires are - by electing Hamas - the gloves should come off."

... If any people know about war it is the Palestinians.
