    Lets see how many people are willing to put their selves on the line and admit they either support or do not support Israel as a US ally.

    Why? So you can attack them for supporting them?

    I support them, but not for any silly religious reason or because we're the Wonder Twins of Democracy.

    I support them because they provide us with a valuable service, protecting Saudi Arabia, which is worth eight billion a year IMHO.

    That would be a qualified yes from me.

    They are a democracy, they have UN recognition, and the feisty bastards and bastardetts have fought for survival like few nations have.

    Having said that, they really need to stop the West Bank land grab.

    Of all people on the Earth they should know Yahweh is a capricious God, and if you over reach it all ends in tears.

    i do not.

    we give them way too much money...and call them the underdog...i am against funnelling money into any countries....like we do israel...i for one, believe they knew they were bombing the uss liberty...i will believe the sailors who served this country over the government of a foreign country. we are simply the stupid cash cow for them....

    this is why christians ignore the part of the bible where jesus says he came only for the jews and jump on the part that says blessed are those who help the jews....

    No, I do not support the government of Israel as an ally. I don't think we should have alliances with foreign governments that constantly get us dragged into their problems and put us on the line for billions in foreign aid.

    I don't think they're doing a west bank land grab.

    do you mean east jerusalem?

    I don't think they should build more settlements there either. but i'm pretty sure it's a response to the pressure they're getting to make concessions before the pals will even sit down at the negotiating table.

    i'm also pretty sure it's the first bargaining chip put on the table.

    i would like to see the same number of threads talking about the palestinians with their terrorist government, though, that are devoted to Israel's purported transgressions --

    most of which (not all) come down to defending itself, IMO.

    RGS supports Israel.

    The larger question is why is this question continually asked regarding Israel... and why does the money constantly get raised, but not the money we spend elsewhere or the other countries we support.
