    Im a westerner , center left. If Isreal cannot live in peace behind the 1967 borders then Zionists have to think about what they are doing there in the first place. With rockets hitting Tel Aviv now the idea of within range of rockets using 1967 borders holds even less water. In short your safety and wellbeing is not an excuse to push people of what is their land. My opinion was sealed when i watched interviews with " true " Jews who said that Zionist Israel was not being Jewish , something about your Spiritual literature saying Jews should not have a state. I appreciate its not a simple situation but on balance I cant support Israel because you seem more wrong to me in the historical context. Yes Hamas are not the best of people but are a reflection of what you have in a way forced the Palestinians to become. I can only glean the disdain Isreal has for non jews when I see kids throwing stones getting SHOT by Isreali IDF in the countryside. Israel is in effect an incubator of the hatrid it decries and runs to the international community and then plays victim. Meanwhile the 2 faced Americans who " saved " Benghazi from being hunted like Rats says its ok for you to bomb Gaza Back to the " middle ages " .
