OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"

The whole world "goes tits over head" when the US and Israel do specific things that Western nations aren't supposed to do. And, you know, the world goes mad over it because it's not expected from such nations.
Also, lets get one thing straight. There's a difference between the Israeli government and the Jews as a culture/nation/people. Saying its because of "the Jews" is inherently racist.
Not anyone who talks negatively of Israel is anti-semitic, no. But those who spread the propaganda to plant those seeds of hatred into the weaker minds of those who are easily convinced, certainly are.
Like it or not, every time you condemn an Israeli action against Hamas, you're supporting terrorism. You know who else condemns it? Al Qaeda. That is how you end up having dinner with murderers, and being even worse than those you judge. (Not you specifically, Slammin, but people in general)
Let me just fix your first statement a bit: "Or maybe Israel was attacked because the surrounding Arab countries didn't feel comfortable knowing a JEWISH state is being founded on the land of their fellow Arabs"
Because I surely don't remember anyone attacking Jordan when it was founded on the land of fellow arabs in 1946.
So, how can you then state it has nothing to do with Israel being Jewish?
All in all, Palestinians, as everyone wishes to call them, weren't only located in what is today Israel, but also in Jordan, right?
How many Palestinians has Israel "killed" since 1948? Less than Jordan killed during the events of Black September. Yet I don't see any outrage over it.
When "arabs" kill "arabs", everything is silent and business as usual (As an Arab, I know enough about it)
But when a "jew" kills an "arab", or an "arab" kills a "jew", tables start flippin'.

I am not ashamed because I simply want to live, and I don't feel like having some brainwashed European convert blowing up on my doorstep.
you create terrorism by your own actions. when the IDF killed that little girl how many terrorists do you think were created. when you bulldoze someones house and dispossess 5 generations of a family do you really think youre winning hearts and minds? how about taking some responsibility for your own actions instead of always blaming everyone else. Hamas exists because of Israeli actions no one elses.

All things bring bad and good results. Sadly, coming from the average muslim family, in an arab town, I know hating Jews was popular before Israel was founded, so the propaganda skips over me. If the hate was solely towards Israel, they wouldn't attack only Jews. They wouldn't attack Jewish communities OUTSIDE of Israel. That would be comparable to the IDF randomly bombing mosques around Europe, right?
The hypocrisy and lies need to be dropped. Let them have the balls to say the truth, and finally be honest about it. Maybe then, when the problem is actually out there, rather than hidden behind political correctness, silly catch phrases and human shields, we may work it out.

I've said it before, Israel provides the Gaza strip with food, water, electricity and medical aid. They have provided those for a long time.
People miss the difference between ability and intention. Just because Israel has the ability to utterly destroy the Gaza strip, it doesn't mean they have the intention. And just because Hamas (amongst others...) has the intention to destroy Israel, they don't have the ability. Yet, instead of recognizing their lack of ability to fulfill their intentions and choosing more peaceful ways, they keep slamming their heads against a wall, hoping that manipulation of weak-minded humans will be enough to provide for means to fulfill their intentions.
If peace was the result they wanted, we would've had it ages ago.
