Israel is willing to do what is necessary to stop Islamic terrorism.
Re Gary OInteresting comment about Israel's ability to hit the
United States with a three stage nuclear tipped inter continental missile.They have had them in production for about five years. Yes they are
operational. Need further proof. Google Jericho IIIYou will find
multiple sources. But the point remains do they really need the Jericho III?
Sven,You're right Obama does not have Israel's best
interest at heart... He has the United States interest.I can't
believe the war hawks of our Nation and Israel are so open to challenge an
opportunity for peace. If it does not work out... then they can have
their war. By the way, their wars usually don't involve their own children
How dare Israel defend themselves! Don't they know our Glorious Dear Leader
is building his legacy? The Prime Minister now clearly understands, Obama does
not have Israel's best interests at heart. Who would've
ever thought we'd see a day when a US President would openly support the
world's largest sponsor of terrorism (committed to the destruction of
Israel and the Jewish people), while dissing our greatest Middle Eastern ally?
GaryObama,First, when Israel took out Saddam's facilities, it
did NOT start a war, as HVH suggested.And while Iran's only
direct attack on US soil was against our embassy - yes, it WAS against us, they
have also funded and supported other attacks against US and our allies'
interests. Sorry your blind defense of all things liberal and attitude of attack
all things conservative does not allow you to see simple truths
Israel needs to be isolated until it behaves well. No threatening its neighbors
with attack. No more creating and maintaining the ghetto of Gaza. Israel must
meaningfully return to peace negotiations. The US cannot support an Israel out
of control without being complicit in its bad behaviors.
Hey Lost in DC -"Should we have shot down Israeli planes when
they took out Saddam’s facilities?"You mean back in 1981?
No, I don't think so. Israel saved us the trouble of knocking out those
nuclear facilities ourselves.However, we most certainly should have
shot down Israeli planes when they attacked the USS Liberty, and killed 34
American seaman and wounded over a hundred.BTW, has Iran ever
attacked an American Navy ship? Aside from the US Embassy in their country, has
Iran EVER physically attacked America or anything belonging to the United
States? . . . Not that I can think of.Sure . . . I know that people
in Iran have attacked the United States and Israel VERBALLY. And yes, it may
have hurt our feelings.But it's sticks and stones that break
bones. Words are comparatively insignificant.And when it comes to
verbal attacks upon the US government, American Right Wingers have launched
stronger attacks against America by far than ANYONE in Iran.
Only America has ever used nukes on another country.Israel will not sign
the NPT.I'm sorry you feel such animosity for Iran, and a people you
barely know.As far as Israel goes, live by the sword die by the sword.I do understand why American Conservatives love Israel though, because they
use the same victim mentality, while acting like a bully.
HVHShould we have shot down Israeli planes when they took out
Saddam’s facilities?Please explain how and when Israel has
used nukes, then I will explain why they need to use them. I am
sorry you bear such apparent animosity towards Israel.
"Israel — which is widely believed to be a nuclear power"How
is it that we are so ended up spending billions of dollars to defend a country
that we do not even know if they have a nicllar bomb? If Isreal decides to
bomb Iran despite this deal then that is their right but we need to wash our
hands of the whe thing with both sides. . Thier Presidents has shown time and
again he has no interest in peace.
we are strong enough to have a peace with Iran. the state of Israel is not our
policy maker. it is our friend. and as our friend understand we must go forward
away from hate and fear.
we have to give iran a chance to do this. isreal should be dictating to us . if
congress does kill this they will show the us to be weak.
Lost said: If the Israelis tried anything, I would not be surprised if BO
intervened – on behalf of the Iranians.As well he should if
Israel provokes a war of aggression against Iran.Israel is more
dangerous to us and the world.The GOP is loyal to Israel for
religious "end of times" nonsense, and Israel knows it.Please explain why Israel need to be able to use Nukes around the world and
nobody say's boo, even though they have proven themselves to be a war like
people like the GOP.
If the Israelis tried anything, I would not be surprised if BO intervened
– on behalf of the Iranians.
"Israel considers a nuclear-armed Iran to be a threat to its survival . . .
"Oh really? That brings up the question . . . Which
countries are threats to our survival?Well let's see now . . .
Of the nuclear countries, only 5 of them have the capacity to deliver a nuclear
payload via missile to the United States . . . . . . Britain,
France, Russia, China, and now Israel.Why did Israel choose to join
those ranks?WHY in the world did they develop an ICBM with the
capability of hitting America?I thought we were supposed to be
