Did anyone else notice the part where the pro-Palestine rally in New
Zealand threw shoes at the building? Fighting for unnecessary violence
with unnecessary violence. Why do they think anybody's going to take
them seriously like that?
I wonder if anyone's noticed that the lower the ratio between Muslims
& Jews in a particular country, the more supportive that country's
polititians are towards the Jewish (majority) state...in Australia the
ratio is less than 5:1 in the US roughly 1:1 Canada less than 3:1 France
12:1 UK 10:1...when you factor in Jewish donations & other financial
clout plus well organised pressure groups and lobbying, it's no surprise
Julia Gillard & Co. are consistently pro-Israel...welcome to the
Security Council, Israel needs you.
Maybe it has more to do with the fact that Hamas is a recognized
terrorist organization by a myriad of countries. Being Jewish and being
Israeli are two very different things. Honestly, "financial
clouts"... how stereo-typical can you be? Even the notoriously
anti-Israeli British government has taken Israel's side in this
conflict. People like you, sadly, are the reason there's so much hatred
in this world.
U are God's anointed. Non should harm u.
Let no man touches God's anointed
I am an Indian Hindu, and I love Israel. I am so thankful to Israel for
standing up against Islamic fundamentalist. I wish I can join your
struggle. If you ever open up your armed forces recruitment for
foreigners such as me, I will happily join your fight.
