If you know anything about Israel, you almost certainly know that the Jewish nation relies on the United States for economic and military support. This is in no small part because the U.S. has the largest Jewish population of any nation outside Israel and because American politicians of both parties hope to win over Jewish voters (and Jewish political donors) by taking Israel's side. When Israel is accused of human rights violations, it can usually rely on American presidents and other major political leaders to have its back. (In that respect, even Donald Trump and Joe Biden are united.) This reality has long frustrated advocates for the Palestinian cause, especially at a moment like this, when the Israeli government is effectively waging war against Palestinians in Gaza.


No, Israel is not a monolith, and neither are Israeli Arabs. Who also happen to be Semites. The sheer ignorance of how Israel was formed, and the oppressive war that has been wage the Palestinians, which ironically has created it's own camps they have been forced to live in after having their homes, and shops taken from them, and even have to have special permits to even fish in the sea they live by, is as astonishing, as it is embarrassing.
I am not reading anything from that rag but I know Truman had a Jewish business partner. Do they touch on that?

Some food for thought...

As the periodic bloodshed continues in the Middle East, the search for an equitable solution must come to grips with the root cause of the conflict. The conventional wisdom is that, even if both sides are at fault, the Palestinians are irrational “terrorists” who have no point of view worth listening to. Our position, however, is that the Palestinians have a real grievance: their homeland for over a thousand years was taken, without their consent and mostly by force, during the creation of the state of Israel. And all subsequent crimes — on both sides — inevitably follow from this original injustice.

Much, much more at the following link:

The origin of the conflict goes back to the establishment of Islam.

Nope. The Hebrews fought with all the neighbors and demonized them long before Islam.

Does it matter? It is religious war that Islamists are obligated to pursue.
