we’re talking about current events and Israel’s military operations currently. It’s a fact that they are a direct result of rockets being fired into Israel, which is by definition self defense. You should say you misspoke otherwise you are lying. Period.This is but the latest shots in a conflict that has been ongoing since before the founding of the Jewish state. The people who started it all are long dead. I blame everyone who can't get past the thirst for vengeance and do the right thing for their people. We are talking about Israel because they have all the power in this situation and are using it badly.This is just a lie. You can argue Israeli policies started this. I would say it’s a bogus argument, but at least it’s open for debate. But it’s fact that Israel military actions are because of rockets fired into Israel.Israel is not defending itself....plain and simple = Israel is defending herselfIf we held Israel to the same standards we do for other countries on human rights and expansionism we would have dumped them long ago. Our hypocrisy on this point is the single biggest obstacle to mideast peace. We defend Israel doing the same thing that we criticize others for. The only religious aspect to our dealings with any country is to recognize that religious zealots running a country is dangerous. God could tell them to do anything and we are treaty bound to back them up.
