    If someone threatened to "wipe America off the map" I'm sure "sanctions" and "diplomacy" would be overly spoken about as much as they're spoken about when it comes to Israel. Double Standard here. The Jewish People respectfully understand that American doesn't have the money to go into another war, but just because there's no American money to go to war doesn't mean The Jewish people will sit there and wait for a 2nd Holocaust to happen. No country on Earth would take this many threats on it's existence and still talk about "diplomacy".... NATO went to war on Gaddafi for less than this just recently. Thank you America for stopping Hitler, but please, stand back now and let us take care of the next one on the table, for once... There will not be even thought of "peace" in this region until enemies of the Jews finally understand it's in their best interest to respect Jews as their equals. Unfortunately, most of Israel's haters only understand the language that they themselves try to speak to Israel. Thank you.
