Hani ,   Montreal   (09.14.06)
By all standards Israel is a historical anomaly, attemping to perpetuate its criminal existence through ceaceless armament and state terror. Constantly on the alert, it seeks an image of the victim, when in fact its so-called IDF has killed more innocent people (including children) than the worse dictators in the region. It is not Saddam who should be on trial, but that failure of a leader Olmert who injects his people with "convergance peace" illusions like morphine. Of course, they are too blind to see that peace is closer than they ever imagined. If only they swallowed their big egos and accepted the Palestinians as their equals in God's Kingdom. To the weak people of the world including Palestinians: Despair not, the Americans and their local dogs will soon realize that their policies will boomerang and backfire very soon. Justice prevails. Stay tuned!
9. America's Burden

America is already beginning to turn away from Israel. Bush's public support for Israel is just a facade. Israel has become America's burden. It will soon rid itself of this burden!
10. U.S. Would Rather THOUSANDS DIE than OFFEND One Muslim
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (09.14.06)
Council on American-Islamic Relations: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." - Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder). August 18, 2006 Controversial Muslim group gets VIP airport security tour Feds show CAIR latest screening steps, sensitive counterterrorism procedures The Department of Homeland Security took a Muslim group with known past ties to terror organizations on a VIP tour of security operations at the nation's busiest airport at the same time British authorities were working to break up a plot to blow up U.S. airlines. On June 21, a senior DHS official from Washington personally guided Muslim officials from the Council on American-Islamic Relations on a behind-the-scenes tour of Customs screening operations at O'Hare International Airport in response to CAIR complaints that Muslim travelers were being unfairly delayed as they entered the U.S. from abroad. CAIR is a spin-off of the Islamic Association for Palestine, identified by two former FBI counterterrorism chiefs as a "front group" for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. Several CAIR leaders have been convicted on terror-related charges. ...U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were asked to describe for CAIR representatives various features of the high-risk passenger lookout system. In a meeting, Brian Humphrey, Customs and Border Patrol's executive director of field operations, assured CAIR officials that agents do not single out Muslim passengers for special screening and that they must undergo a mandatory course in Muslim sensitivity training. The course teaches agents that Muslims believe jihad is an "internal struggle against sin" and not holy warfare. Customs agents involved in the CAIR tour at O'Hare tell WorldNetDaily they were outraged that headquarters would reveal sensitive counterterrorism procedures to an organization that has seen several of its own officials convicted of terror-related charges since 9-11. "Isn't that nice of CBP," one agent said, to provide a "group like CAIR with a guided, behind-the-scenes tour of our customs facilities, explaining how programs designed to catch Muslim terrorists work." A Customs and Border Protection supervisor... "It's all about how Islam means peace and tolerance," he told WorldNetDaily. "We're told how to deal with Arabs and Muslims, that they are loving people and not terrorists. That jihad is struggle with sin and has nothing to do with violence." CAIR – which is bankrolled by the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates, two countries that formally recognized the Taliban – also offers religious and cultural sensitivity training about Islam and Muslims to the military... Also in June, CAIR was invited by the Pentagon to a ceremony dedicating the first Islamic center in Marine Corps history at Quantico headquarters outside of Washington. Washington-based CAIR also has regular meetings with the FBI and Justice Department. In fact, FBI case agents complain the bureau rarely can make a move in the Muslim community without first consulting with CAIR, which sits on its advisory board...

U.S. public schools infamous for their hostility to Christianity and Judaism are indoctrinating America's children into Islam. Breaking G-D's commandment: "You shall have no other gods before Me", America's children are being taught to follow a god we and our ancestors, never knew. As American soldiers fight and die in Iraq, we have lost our freedom in America. December 13, 2003 JUDICIAL JIHAD Judge rules Islamic education OK in California classrooms Dismisses suit opposing requirement students recite Quran, pray to Allah Requiring seventh-grade students to pretend they're Muslims, wear Islamic garb, memorize verses from the Quran, pray to Allah and even to play "jihad games" in California public schools has been legally upheld by a federal judge, who has dismissed a highly publicized lawsuit brought by several Christian students and their parents... ...the suit was filed by the Thomas More Law Center against the Byron Union School District and various school officials to stop the use of the "Islam simulation" materials and methods used in the Excelsior Elementary School in Byron, Calif. The World History and Geography class in question is part of a curriculum being taught to seventh-graders all over the state, and is included in the state's curriculum standards required by the state board of education. Although the standards outline what subjects should be taught and will be included in state assessment tests, they don't mandate how they're to be taught. In the three-week course, Excelsior teacher Brooke Carlin had students assume Islamic names, recite prayers in class, memorize and recite verses from the Quran, and had them simulate Ramadan fasting by going without something for a day. The final test required students to critique Muslim culture. The Islam simulations at Excelsior are outlined in the state-adopted textbook "Across the Centuries," published by Houghton Mifflin, which prompts students to imagine they are Islamic soldiers and Muslims on a Mecca pilgrimage. The lawsuit also alleges students were encouraged to use such phrases in their speech as "Allah Akbar," which is Arabic for "God is great," and were required to fast during lunch period to simulate fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. "While public schools prohibit Christian students from reading the Bible, praying, displaying the Ten Commandments, and even mentioning the word 'God,' students in California are being indoctrinated into the religion of Islam..."
12. Why Don't I Believe Bush?
emanon ,   USA   (09.14.06)
WOLF ,   Detroit USA   (09.14.06)
US committed ? NOT! Bush is a freak and in no way represents the American people. Frankly ,he is hated and seen as the worst president ever. Truth is you are on your own.
14. #7, absolutely "Javol" to that

You are right, Johan. absolutely on that point . 100%

עַלִיצָה ,   Rehovot   (09.14.06)
Our supposed friends know this but because they take their partisanship more seriously to the point of seeing Israel screwed they say nothing. It is one thing to say you are our friend but it is quite another to walk the walk no matter what stir it creates. When George Bush took the hand of France (of all countries) and went to the United Nations (of all places) and co-authored a cease fire to stop Israel from finishing the Hezbollah problem, this spoke volumes of how he regards the security of Israel. It spoke even more volumes because once again our supposed friends said nothing. NOTHING. The silence was deafening. For that our friends beat up on Israel for the way we fought the war. Go figure. What one of the worst cease-fire resolutions in all of history accomplished was to keep Hezbollah alive while Syria and Iran jumped for joy. This created the threat to Israel to be more severe then before the war. Security for Israel, right. An added note: Our good friends also said nothing when Bush signed the wavier visa for Kahami to visit the US!! Wow, was there silence for that one. Rather as an interesting diversion railed on Harvard for hosting him. Saying little if anything concerning a National Cathedral in Washington DC where he also spoke. Saying even less of the head honcho of that said church who extolled mad man Kathami.

Hani, I live in Montreal too we could meet for a coffee and discuss this -- Are you sure about your numbers -- I seem to remember that 1 million people died in Iran-Iraq conflict. Iranian ayatollahs sent 10000 children of wealthy families in Teherant to clean mine fields. Asad massacred 10000 people in Hama, not to say anything about 100 thousand people in Lebanon during Syria's occupation of Lebanon. Jordan (during the Black September) massacred thousands of Palestinians too.

20. OFFERING UP ISRAEL as A SACRIFICE. A Second Czechoslovakia
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (09.14.06)
Among foreign leaders, terrorist godfather Arafat was Clinton's most frequent, honored White House guest. Arafat had more Jewish blood on his hands than anyone since Hitler and was adored by the international elites. Weak Israeli leaders despicably consent to the Road Map to a second Holocaust. Let the countries of the U.S. EU UN first give half of their countries and half of their capital cities to the terrorists before these hypocrites demand of Israel what they would NEVER submit to. Palestinian Authority society are taught murdering Jews is the highest goal in life and attains paradise: The Hamas Charter states: "Israel, by virtue of its being Jewish and of having a Jewish population, defies Islam and the Muslims... Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it..."
21. Mr. Bush will not be there for Israel
steve ,   USA   (09.14.06)
Israel is on her own. President Bush will not be there for Israel. Mr. Bush speaks kindly and soothing words to Israel. That's all. He is not my / our friend.
22. Doesnt matter who the President is
Jason ,   USA   (09.14.06)
The United States of America will always support Israel.
23. Jason- not so
its comes a time in every nations heart that they need to look out for their OWN people first- and Israel has become an achilles heel to the USA security- and a burden. Sorry- The US citizens are voting pro-israeli supporteres OUT already look at Liberman!!!

Lars ,   Finland   (09.14.06)
Your comparision is inconceivable anacronism. Russian invansion to Czechoslovakia was at the time of cold war and it has different historical basics and intention than US-Israeli relationship today. In those days (1968) western block could break the iron courtain and it forced Russians to protect their sphere of interest. If NATO would attack to Czechoslovakia it would start the total war in Europe with Nato and the Warsaw Pact. During Finland´s Eu presidency we will help all those who will suffer from lack of basic human needs irrespective of whether they are our friends or foes. That is called humanity and we can afford to do so, whatever it costs. Eu has a different foreign politics than USA. For Finland it has cost the life of capitain-lieutenant Jarno Mäkinen who was killed 25.7 in Khiam by airstrike of IAF. He was buried last Sunday by the freedom fighters of Finland. It has been our offer for world peace. So IAF has Finnish blood in its hands - and we will remember it forever as we remember all those who have fought for our freedom during 683 years. We know from hard experience that., it is better to have some kind of peace with your neighbours than persevering war. But you Americans do not understand it, because there have not been any real war with other nations for centuries on your own ground. You have always been conquerors aroud the world. Do not ask why you (USA) are not hold in high regard or liberators. The weaknes of your argumentation is that you do not ask WHY there is terrorists in some countries and why there are countries where is no terrorism. Basic human values are justice, honesty, equality, adequate living, involvement and democracy. If there is lack of these basic moral values, there are also marginalized people, who has nothing to lose. That is the seed of terrorism. So you should dig up Road Map to peace.

Linda is a lost cause- a pro christian fundie who blindly supports anything 'jewish' regardless of their actions- right or wrong. Good luck trying to get anything into her thick skull. by the way-I agree with you- the root of terrorism , in todays era- has much to day with the foreign policies of the USA and of course Israel's treatment of the Palestinians.

Islam’s Torture of Lebanon By Jamie Glazov | August 11, 2005FP: Frontpage Interview guest today is Brigitte Gabriel, a survivor of Islam's Jihad against Lebanese Christians. Gabriel: I was raised in the only Christian country in the Middle East , Lebanon . When Lebanon got its independence from France in the 40's the majority of the population was Christian. We were merchant, descendents of the Phoenicians...In no time Lebanon became the Paris of the Middle East ... Gabriel: The Christians in Lebanon always had problems with the Moslems, but we never thought our neighbors would turn on us. That situation was aggravated by the influx of the Palestinians coming from Jordan after King Hussein kicked them out in Black September. That's what tipped the scale in Lebanon . Not only had Moslems become the majority but they now also felt empowered by the presence of the Palestinians and Yasser Arafat wanting to attack the Christians, take over Lebanon and use it as a base from which to attack Israel ... When the Moslems and Palestinians declared Jihad on the Christians in 1975 we didn't even know what that word meant. We had taken them into our country, allowed them to study side by side with us, in our schools and universities. We gave them jobs, shared with them our way of life. We didn't realize the depth of their hatred to us as infidels. They looked at us as the enemy not as neighbors, friends, employers and colleagues... A lot of Muslims pored in from other Muslim countries like Iran ... They came from Somalia , Sudan , Syria , Jordan and Egypt . The Lebanese civil war was not between the Lebanese, it was a holy war declared on the Christians by the Muslims of the Middle East ... They started massacring the Christians, city after city. Horrific events the western media seldom reported. One of the most ghastly acts was the massacre in the Christian City of Damour where thousands of Christians were slaughtered like sheep...They would urinate and defecate on the altars of churches using the pages of the bible as toilet paper... The majority of the Lebanese army was Muslims. Christians went to universities, not to the military. The Muslims began taking over military bases across Lebanon . They combined their forces with the Palestinians and formed what they called the Arab Lebanese Army and started attacking the Christians... Gabriel: My town was 2 and half miles from the Israeli boarder. We in our Christian town were faced with the combined Muslim and Palestinian forces waiting to slaughter us. We knew our fate, knowing what they have done to other Christian towns and cities in the rest of Lebanon ... Under the cover of darkness, few men from our town went to the border, flagged down an Israeli boarder patrol, explained the situation and begged for help... Israel agreed to help the Christians. Israel became our lifeline. The Israeli military would come during the night and bring food and ammunition to the military and milk for the children... The only reason we stayed alive is because Israel came into Lebanon and drove the Muslims away from the surrounding hills and set up positions in our town to protect us... Things got worse as Syrian, Libyans, Iranians Egyptians became enraged and flocked into Lebanon to fight the infidel Christians and Jews... The Muslims had one vision, to take control of the only Christian country in the Middle East and than attack Israel ...
28. #24 #25 PA CALL for MURDER of all JEWS & MURDER of AMERICANS
Linda Rivera ,   New York   (09.15.06)
PA/PLO are the recipients of mega U.S. tax dollars. Americans are immorally forced to finance jihad against Jews and Americans. The planned genocide of Jews by PA/PLO/Hamas, Hizbullah-Syria-Iran et al, breaks international law and must be addressed by the International Criminal Court. The U.S. EU, UN Road Map Islamic Terror State Two in Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem will reduce Israel to an INDEFENSIBLE 6-10 miles wide at mid-section, thus enabling a second Holocaust of Jews. The Palestinian Authority teach through their mosques, media, summer camps, and public education system, that murdering Jews is a religious obligation. Human bomb killers of Jewish innocents are revered and considered heroes by PA society. Palestinian Authority society are taught murdering Jews is the highest goal in life and attains paradise: The Palestinian Authority hailed as heroes the terrorists who brutally murdered defenseless 8 months pregnant Jewish Gaza mother, Tali Hatuel, and four little daughters in Gush Katif in May 2004. Thousands of Palestinian Authority Muslims celebrate in the streets and pass out sweets whenever Jewish innocents, including children, are murdered by human bomb killers. Effigies of burning buses are features of PA school pageants and summer camps. Streets and soccer teams are named after suicide bombers. Adults and children train in terrorist training camps. Terrorists have been captured at Israeli checkpoints, posing as ambulance drivers, doctors and patients. Terrorists have hidden explosive suicide belts under gurneys carrying sick children and in the garments of pregnant women. Red Crescent ambulances transport terrorists, weapons and bombs. Broadcast from Gaza mosque, Oct 13 2000, Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabiya, on Palestinian Authority TV (transcribed by Memri): "Have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Wherever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them..."
