Getting rid of your bias against the USA and Israel would be step #1.To answer your comments,step 2, requires an understanding of European and Middle Eastern history which is obviously is or was not taught in your school.Regarding Israel, the Christian world would rather mourn - for a very short time,of course-the destruction of Israel by its Arab neighbors just as it did the Holocaust. That Jews were able to revive a Jewish commonwealth, really burns the chattering classes of Europe. It was done with enormous loss of their lives along with the shovel, spade and a good dose of courage and faith, plus a great deal of money - the same as the rescue of Europe during Word War II. Oh,I forgot for a moment that Ireland was not actually in Europe. And it did not participate in stopping Hitler from rampaging all over Europe. America along with its allies bought that victory with a terrible cost in lives and treasure.More treasure brought about the reconstuction of Europe afer World War II.
