in response to reader comment: America should support Israel

Submitted by Harrak (Canada), May 25, 2006 at 20:47

""Israel deserves America's support in every way""

May be true, but I think supporting the people dying of hunger and starvation by providing food and shelter and helping creat democratic entities is more worthy than payying billions from the tax payers to a cause they do not clearly know about.

""Israel is the only country in the Mideast that defends it citizens individual rights as a matter of principle and government policy.""

A lot of problems inside Israel concerning individual and group rights. The Ashkanazi jews treat the Etiopian -Falasha- and Syfardic jews as second class, as if they were born there. That is a strange phenomenon when an Immigrant says to other citizen you are immigrant...Israel is the state of contradictions..

"It is hated for the same reason that militant Muslims hate us"

Here we agree, they hate you like they hate the Americans..why? on one side you call for democracy, on the other you call for theocracy. Come on, people are not FULL-TIME stupid.
