    America supports and arms Israel.
    Israel commits mass murder and is at war with at least one pretty much unarmed state that is totally unable to defend itself against attacks.

    Given the US supplies most of Israeli's arms and financially supports that government, would future attacks against the US be legitimate?

    Personally, I believe attacks on the states are acceptable but I would prefer there be be economic damage and disruption only, not deaths.

    Opinion?

    That would make sense since Iran is the bad guy for supporting Palestinian resistance to Israel's occupation.

    According to whom?


    Every nation is a "legitimate" target to their enemies.

    Seriously the question really doesn't make much sense.

    Given I'm asking for opinions, anyone who wishes to reply.
    I believe America has painted a target on its own back and it's just a bit of hard luck if someone fires at it.

    America is the attacking force in at least two countries and the arms supplier to the attacking force in a third.
    I believe that is justification for any group concerned to attack America.

    Perhaps you could give reasons why I'm wrong. :)

    I don't believe I mentioned extremists, just freedom fighters attacking the US.

    The US would be a target even if it didn't support Israel. India doesn't support Israel, but it had the attack in Mumbai and Kashmir is a legitimate muslim target. Bali doesn't support Israel. The nightclub bombings in Germany weren't because of Israel. Likewise, terrorist activity in China and Russia don't concern Israel in the slightest.
