"Israel doesn't want any trouble,...They have only done what is necessary to protect themselves and thier historically God-given lands that had been taken from them millenia ago."

Wow! How history can be so conveniently rewritten is astounding!

Because of space limitations, let me just point out that "Israel" abandoned those "God-given lands" for over 400 years, then tried to commit genocide against the peaceful people's who moved there in their absence.

Killing innocent people because your "god" tells you to is the hallmark of religious fanaticism, and laying arbitrary claim to property that has been possessed and settled by other peoples for half a millenium, and justifying it by saying "God gave us this land" is beyond the pale!

But I suppose you would endorse and support Native Americans if they engaged in terrorist acts to re-take what is today the "occupied territories" of the United States of America?
