Discussion in 'Israel and Palestine' started by TheGreatGatsby, Sep 5, 2012.
That is the Democrats new claim at the 2012 DNC. Obama just made his 'f you' to the Jews official.
We all have to vote Republican.
Israel has Jerusalem as its capital by their own law (Constitutional level law).
The international community has long rejected the Israeli position.
In fact, the U.S. doesn't even put its embassy in Jerusalem -- for a reason.
I disagree with the "plank" of the Dim Party platform, but I can't pretend that it is actually anything all that new. What is new is, perhaps, being so blunt about it.
Ask yourself why a guy like Bill Clinton didn't take the Obama position? Could it be that he was faithful to American security interests and Obama is not?
i think it would actually be pretty liberating to the american people to realise that a president can be elected without having to kowtow to AIPAC and the jewish election contributions. maybe we would actually make significant progress towards a just peace in the region.
i also liked the latino brother's speech. most of the irish catholics saw right through romney's choice for VP anyway. we don't like people who pander.
Why is the right always have Israel on their minds, do they think of nothing else?
hardly, Israel has their security blanket even if they don't get the headlines at the DNC
Yeah that must be it. You being so observant and all
They are our older brothers in faith, you have Putin
Well, this is no longer the case. Both the Democrats and the Republicans now believe Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.
