    America did not support the establishment of a Jewish state or an Armenian state because of their holocausts. To invoke the holocaust to justify past and future American support for Israel is shameless. What is the morality of Americas support to occupy and oppress the Palestinians? America is honoring a moral obligation in assisting in the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes? Any support for Israel should be justified based on what that support is used for and who it is used against. Our moral obligation to those who are oppressed and displaced from their lands. Not to those who would oppress and displace people from their homes. What Germany did over 60 to Jews, Gypsies, Slavs and other non Aryans has no bearing on America?s moral obligations. That is a crime that they should atone for, not America. The Jewish holocaust cannot be used as justification for preventing a Palestinian state. Just as the holocaust cannot be used to manipulate American support for Israel, neither can 9/11. Neither have anything to do with the other. Hamas and Hezbollah are not our enemies, they are yours. Al Qaeda cares little about Israel. Their target is largely the Muslim world and the western (Christian worlds), primarily America. We do not have common enemies. Allow American who are only concerned about America to be concerned with American moral obligations. I suggest that yopu concern yourself with Israel?s moral obligations.
