I am a proud Canadian of Jewish upbringing. I am well read and can see both sides of any dispute. It is very easy for you other Jews to say you are disheartened with Israel and policies but please analyze how we got here. Let us put aside for the time being the holocaust and persecution of Jews during WW11. Let us go back further. We were persecuted and slaughtered by several other regimes because of our beliefs in one spiritual deity. Early on before the birth of Jesus. BCE - the Greeks - the Romans After the Romans executed Jesus and the beginnings on Christianity - the expulsion out of Spain- preceded by mass killing - then the Inquisition - the Arab Moors followed by the Islamic big hearted folks - the Crusaders who practised killing Jews in europe on their way to the Holy Land - the Russian pogroms - and the Holocaust Maybe after all this as a people we finally are standing up for ourselves. We were willing to share Israel but once again we were attacked. Understand ?
