4. Just look at Saudi Books, Media, Preachers
Ron ,   Melbourne,Australia   (09.13.11)
You do not need to look far - Saudi Arabia education system has books which are objectively antisemitic (see some of the publication details aired in London), Preachers (sanctioned by the Government/Royal family) which are clearly preaching anti-Semitic hate ;media full of anti-semitic cartoons, articles, etc- So this is just a smoke screen......

DJ ,   USA   (09.13.11)
The creation of Israel was wrong. Hitler did the holocaust in Germany and USA made the Arab nations pay for it. If the West was that concerned about the Jewish population it could have carved out a Jewish nation in the middle of USA. Imagine how Christians would react if a Muslim nation was forcibly created in the Vatican. The creation of Israel was an act of terrorism and Hamas was a reaction. The entire world is paying a huge cost for this single most stupid act in history.

Can you point out exactly what is wrong with #6 comment? He knows what he talks about. Are you sure you are not the one in the imaginary bubble?
11. "Openureyes" why don't YOU
Doodreally ,   USA   (09.13.11)
So, if #6 doesn't know what he's talking about - then which history book did he read? Hmm... I think he read the history books of what really happened. Why don't you go get out of your own bubble read some about the creation of the state of Israel.You'll see that #6 was right - and you're living in the fairy-tale land. Israel is a nation born of war, strife, and crime - it can't be denied. The victim is now the perpetrator. How can the citizens of Israel stand for committing the atrocities they do today? ( Defending yourself is bringing justice to the guilty: to the criminal and his cohorts. Not his extended family and neighbors as well. )

You state it well. The creation of Israel, though understandably motivated, was indeed a crime against humanity, not to mention a sin against the Lord Himself. But you may rest easier. Within a year or two, it will have been put out of the picture by combined forces of Arabs, Turks, Persians, and many Christian volunteers.
13. I am thinking about blocking you

Yes, the US could have carved out an area for Jews in the US but it didn't. So? What good does this concept do today? Which "arab nation" are you referring to? The British mandate which was here pre-1948? What sort of arab nation is that? BTW there were thousands of Jews here already..... How can you create a nation within the Vatican? It's about the size if a football field...... The British tried to divide their mandated area into 2 states - one Arab and one Jewish but the former launched a war against the latter. So who is the terrorist eh? If Israel hadn't been created in 1948 this area would still be some sort of mandated backwater desert. BTW have you ever even been here?

Amazing to see how the mice come out of their holes when cheese is put out to entice them. Here's a historical lesson you should read up on: The borders of biblical Israel stretch from the Nile River to the Euphrates. Eastern Egypt, Sinai, Jordan, part of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, part of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, as well as part of Turkey. Today, these areas are "Occupied Territory"! Occupied by muslim arabs and Turks! Am Yisrael Chai, Chai, V'Kayam!

I would really be interested to read the same history books, the 3 of you have read about the history of the Jewish people and the "criminal" creation of Israel..Please enlighten me of the names of at least one book and it's author, so i can get it & read up support you. Because last time checked, Israel is occupying a tiny sliver of land, so much less, then they historically owned, it could hardly be seen on a map.Just reading an Ecyclopedia you can get the answer on the subject of ancient and current Israel and the Jewish people. You are a little too quick to surface here to start a hate campaign, but you must know, you'll remain in a dire minority, little magots...The truth is just not on your side...Never was...The more you lie, the more our truth is self evident...
17. to # 10 Adrian from Poland
david ,   Israel   (09.13.11)
Jews came home after 2000 years, rebuilt their country (Israel) . By the way Jews were not exactly loved by their Polish neighbours, remember the massacre 40 Jews murdered by their Polish neighbours !!, in Kielce Poland on July 6 1946 ( After WW2 !!!!!) , remember the JEDWABNE MASSACRE in Poland in July 1941 , 340 Jews ( men,women and Children) were burned alive by their Polish neighbours !!!, I assume that you do not want Jews to leave Israel and live in Poland. !!!!
18. The Iraqi PM admitted in Wikileaks Saudi Arabia is terroris

The Iraqi PM admitted in Wikileaks that the majority of terrorists murdering Iraqis are from Saudi Arabia.
19. They're having a field day of it, aren't they?

First, ask the Arabs and they will tell you that the "Palestinians" are not a real nation but recent invaders. As for proof that Israel is the homeland of the Jews? You can read the Bible or the writings of the Roman Empire. You can read the New Testament or go to the Vatican and ask the Pope himself about the life of the Jew, Jesus of Nazareth. You could learn about the countless archeological research. Best of all, read the book that 25% of the world's population knows is the absolute truth, and denying this truth is punishable by death, the Koran.
21. This is they guy that the Israeli goverement
Funny if it wasnt so ,   sad   (09.13.11)
repeatedly telling us is on their side and have tight cooperation with him. Only shows us how grounded that government is.
22. yet every word out of erdogan's mouth seeks war
bernard ross ,   st anns bay, jamaica   (09.13.11)
While every word out of bibis mouth seeks reconciliation. is lying a genetic, religious or cultural trait?
23. Re 6, 10, 11 Lest suppose Israel used US standards
Mike ,   Israel   (09.13.11)
Lest asume you clowns are right and your not even close. But lets asume Israel used the same game plan Americans used. They rounded up all the natives and put them in the midle of nowhere against there will after they killed most of women, children and men. Is this what ya'll call humane? Dont forget Israel in 1948 was created by the UN dividing a small strip of land into 2. 1 would be Israel and the other palestine, however if your willing to learn you'll note that all the arb world attacked the samed day and the results are clear, Israel is real and it is strong and will remain forever strong and real. Get over yourself son.
24. Arab Hypocrisy
Aharon   (09.13.11)
The arabs complain that anyone who criticizes Israel is automatically labeled a terrorist or anti-semite, not true, but if you look at many of the people criticizing Israel, they are usually anti-semitic or terrorists. Of course these countries also say that everything Israel does is aggressive or breaks international law, again false. When we look at these states, and criticize their way of life, the critics are considered infidels and anti-muslim.
25. External factors leave 1 option: BIG ISRAEL

... they are no longer referring to us as the "Zionist entity."

One could make a more cogent case that the creation of Arab states by Britain and France was a mistake, for which everyone is paying a price. Jews lived in Israel before the Arabs invaded this part of the world and continued to live there. Half of Israel's population are refuges from Arab countries. litvac120
