People in this country need to ask tough questions, the right ones. Zionists have wanted to take Palestine for decades because of their religious belief that it should belong to them. Palestinians and more importantly muslims in general have been in conflict with Zionists as far back as you want to go. Accordingly, a majority of muslims dislike jews and those who support jews, much the same way this country dislikes terrorists. Since the U.S. supports Israel many muslims have bad feelings toward us, which begs the question:why do we support this state? Some say b/c it's a democracy...but surely we would dump other dem. states if it meant avoiding another 9/11 Some say it's history, we've always done it since the state was founded...... when do we cut losses? why embroil half a population of the middle east for the sake of repetition? It can't be b/c of economic aid or trade w/ Israel, unless they're offering a great price on sand. Why?
