    Of course I don't think it will be different. I don't expect it to be. This is just another piece of evidence.

    One can disagree with the decisions of the state of Israel and of course not be anti Jewish, but anyone should also forgive most Jewish people on earth wanting a strong Israel as an insurance policy.

    Israel is surrounded by a sea of tyranny; they accepted the UN partition plan and no Arab nation did. Israel said yes to peace and the Arab world chose war, time and time again. Israel has been attacked time and time again, and yes, they took territory in those attacks, Israel won.

    This is how every nation on earth has been born, every last one, including all Islamic nations. The winners survive, determine territory.

    Yet some how we expect Israel to be the only nation in human history that wins wars and gives up territory?

    And they comply: Gaza, they gave it up, they did not have to, they could have sat there for decades, maybe forever, they gave it up with no concessions, no concessions; only to see it become a base for Hamas rocket attacks.

    And we in the comfortable West have the gall to condemn them for this generosity no other nation would contemplate. Not ours, not any one of ours.

    Israel is playing by the normal rules of history, and they are winning.

    And many people can not forgive them for it.

    Peace without justice is the peace of the slave.

    A master-slave peace, where the slave has no power or will to resist and therefore submits to the dictates of the master, passively, obediently, without a semblance of human dignity.

    Of course. Often though, those criticizing Israel hold it to a special standard they hold no other nation or people to.

    What could be more just that the setup of the 1947 plan which divided the land based on the makeup of people living there?

    Indeed, had the Palestinians accepted that plan they would currently own a large part of what is current day Israel, perhaps not the West Bank however as Jordon occupied that and gave no hint of creating a Palestinian homeland out of it until they lost it in war.

    Suddenly, when they no longer controlled it they came to the conclusion it was the true home of the Palestinian people.
