    If you think you have all the answers, let's do a little comparison. In Israel, a Jew who kills an Arab is condemned by most citizens. The public is horrified. Fellow Jews are enraged. In Palestine, an Arab kills a Jew and is hailed as a hero to the nation. People wave his picture around and his family gets thousands of dollars of compensation. If you believe that Israeli Arabs can walk into Israel, and (while paying taxes, but also recieving the benefits of living in Israel) wholeheartedly support Hamas: do fundraisers, give money, etc., it's not rocket science that they would be considered enemies of the state. If an American citizen started supporting terrorists outright -- ststing that the money they collected would be sent to Terrorists -- they would be detained under anti-terrorism laws. If an Israeli living in, say, Lebanon, decided he was going to decry Islam, raise money for Israel, and burn Lebanese flags, I have no trouble believing he would be shot. Finally, I don't get it: Arab states cover the entire middle-east peninsula. Israel is a tiny speck of land that you can barely see on a map. If all Arabs love their Palestinian brothers so much, why don't they allow them to rebuild their lives in the states that are already Arab (muslim) controlled? Is it too much to ask that one Jewish state exist, to protect the rights and beliefs of Jews worldwide? What makes Arabs so much more deserving of this land than Jews?

Timidity in face of Jewish terror has a heavy price

The terrorists who murdered Palestinian infant Ali Saad Daobasa have exacerbated the situation in the territories to its most dangerous since the last Gaza war.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
