    Would that Mean the Nation of Syria has that same right,the right to defend itself against such vicious attacks, by the foreign-backed rebels ?

    Perhaps it was the fact that the press release in question made no mention of the 451 rocket and mortar attacks launched at Israel in the first ten months of 2012 or the 1,000 rockets launched at Israel in the last few days that caused the US objection.

    The Arab attitude is, of course, "Phfffft! We were only aiming at Jews; what's wrong with that?"

    What could Obama possibly be thinking to object to that kind of reasoning?

    Of course..... Israel could be as guilty as Jerry Sandusky but the
    US would still defend Israel as being righteous.
    After all, we have the best politicians money can buy and AIPAC did just that.

    Simple minded racist bullshit about Jews and money. AIPAC makes no political contributions and no political endorsements. Polls consistently show US voters overwhelmingly support Israel over the Palestinian Arabs and AIPAC's influence come from providing a venue in which US politicians can show their constituents that they also support Israel.

    so Gazans firing rockets across a border into Israel are rebels? Are you saying that they are Israeli citizens?

    You seriously believe that? You can actually give that answer in with a straight face?

    What do the polls show about US foriegn aid to the middle East?
    What do the polls show about US intervention in the middle East?
    What do the polls show about US Troops fighting for Israel in the middle East?

    Polls can be skewed for the answer you want just by the wording of the question.

    As you point out there is a border, israel controls that border and is enforcing a blockade, so that no one can go in or out, Palestinians are in their right to fight back against the aggressor

    so, A. you accept that the analogy to rebels in Syria fails on its face and B. you ignore that 7 miles of the border is controlled by Egypt and no one is firing rockets in that direction.

    I bet you support freeing Jonathan Pollard too.
    The Fact is The U.S. is providing Israel with at least $8.5 million each day in military aid during Fiscal Year 2012.
    Let that sink in and I will say it again
    The Fact is the US gives Israel $8.5 million each day in military aid during Fiscal Year 2012
    $8.5 Million a Day to Israel instead of Seaside Heights
    $8.5 Million a Day to Israel instead of Staten Island

    What is more important to you......
    Israel or the United States.

    Seems your first priority is Israel
