"Canada was created by brutal expulsion of Native Americans using guns and smallpox. Israel was created with a much smaller loss of life" Oh gosh Herbert, keep counting because the body bags keep coming in. Even if only one life was lost, the end result is the same - ROBBERY. Israel deserves the right to exist only because it now does. (Your grief is not greater than any other oppressed peoples.) But it was formed in a foul way no doubt. And the quicker Israel makes a fair peace, the better for Israel's survival. This last war convinced me of this. (After all, how can you cry to God when you don't do justice???) After a just peace (give up Golan, Gaza in full, W. Bank, etc.) with her neighbors, especially the Palestians, I bet you find non-jews ready to step forward to protect Israel in great numbers with their votes and otherwise. Then Israelis could see their way to prosperity supplying the rest of the middle east with goods galore...billions without relying on Congress.
