The 'holy land'. Nowhere else on earth does religion so singularly fail humanity.

Indeed. And Auschwitz and Siberia, along with Cambodia's fields, are a shining testament to the moral forces of atheism.

I find this article very biased against Israel.

First of all, there are no such cities as "East Jerusalem" and "West Jerusalem". Jerusalem is one city. The only time in history that it was divided is when Jordan illegally conquered it in 1948 and kept it for 19 years until the Israelis took it back in 1967. During the time that Jordan occupied it, the Jordanians drove out all the Jews and destroyed the Jewish religious sites. As a result, most of the Arabs in Jerusalem live in the eastern part of Jerusalem, but it should not be called "East Jerusalem".

Second, the article belittles the danger of Hamas's rocket aggression against Israel when the author says: "The rockets are largely ineffective and many have been intercepted by Israeli Iron Dome defense missiles." You wouldn't say that if hundreds of rockets were being lobbed against Salt Lake City. Hamas has been pursuing an aggressive, genocidal war against the Jews, just as its Charter says. If the Hamas rockets have not landed on a densely populated Israeli center it is only a matter of luck.

I found this to be a surprisingly balanced article. Israel has brutally oppressed the Palestinians for generations.Israel was established by the ethnic cleansing of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, forced from their homes with no compensation. Since then, Israel has built thousands of settlements that the world condemns as illegal. Genocide continues to this day, with the slaughter of innocent men, women and children in the Gaza Strip.
The fact that Palestinians are fighting for self-determination, a concept the U.S. supports except when it involves the Palestinians, should be encouraged. Israel is not interested in peace on any terms except the total annihilation of Palestine, its people and culture.

Might I suggest to anyone that cares to watch first hand how Israeli agent false flag provocateurs infiltrate Palestinian areas to provoke and justify violence, watch "5 Broken Cameras". Note the False Flag part isn't even the point of the movie, its just an aside one hears when a group of "peaceful" Palestinian demonstrators are running to safety with the camera rolling and one of them points out that the people who started the rock throwing - which justified the guns - were Israeli's dressed as Palestinians. False Flags seem to be an Israel speciality. Look up USS Liberty too.
