Aerial bombardment is not a proper response to rape or decapitation and bombs falling from the air always kill more innocents than rapists or those you would characterize as barbarians. But I guess Obama can always say that the innocents were being used as human shields.
On The Roots of ISIS

What's the statute of limitations on the Six Day War?
The Zionists have never doubted that their chutzpah and tenacity will win out over all protest no matter how "regrettable" their actions.
When "pressure" is put on Israel they respond by building more settlements in the West Bank and Golan Heights; by building walls; by blockading Gaza and then bombing those fish in a barrel.
Criticize Israel and they respond by making demands - more money,more arms, and a guaranteed U.S.veto to all U.N. "pressure".
You say we can't go back to 1948 but you think we can go back twenty-five hundred years to find a justification for giving Russian Jews a "right of return" to a land belonging to others?
The problem for liberal Jews is that Zionism is triumphant so whatever the Likud does now - no matter how audacious and reprehensible - when the author of 9/11, 7/7, and 3/11 is discovered - all Jews will be blamed. Fear of retribution is what the Talmudists use to rein in their errant fellow tribesmen. Even liberal Jews could not help feeling conceited pride in 1948 and 1967 but they didn't anticipate the cost and payment is now due.

How can you "totally support" the violence, terrorism, dispossession and expulsion of 700,000 Palestinians that was necessary to establish a Jewish state in Palestine?

loonpt, How will American bombers and drones identify the "moderates" to avoid destroying perfectly good weapons?

Reports that Netanyahu detests Obama, that they don't get along, that Obama criticizes Israel's actions in the West Bank are meaningless and likely just face-saving news bites to make Obama look like he is doing something. But Obama has been president for nearly six years and he hasn't done one single thing to rein in Israel and wouldn't even allow the U.N. to investigate possible war crimes in Gaza.
If there is a strong Jewish movement against the Likud Obama, as the leader of the Democratic Party had the perfect opportunity to expose the perfidy of Bush and the neo-cons by taking a hard line against Netanyahu and the Likud beginning five years ago. What is your explanation for his poor performance?

When Israel was done bombing Gaza they had killed 2,143 people, mostly civilians; wounded or maimed over 11,000. They totally or partially destroyed 18,000 homes, 75 schools, many hospitals, mosques, and hundreds of factories and shops. This went on for 51 days and at the end the Israelis allowed Obama to have a little snit on the telephone with Netanyahu! Such a report makes Obama appear thoroughly craven and effete.
ISIS is not our problem. Iran is not our problem. Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are not our problems. We are there because of Israeli lies and false flag attacks. A president who intends to make U.S. foreign policy reflect American interests would expose Israel as the perpetrator of 9/11, 3/11, or 7/7 and disengage from every conflict those attacks prompted. Obama is Israel's step 'n fetch it.

Voting for either party will be a vote for the status quo. A Congress that gives Benjamin Netanyahu 29 standing ovations doesn't belong to the American people.

Obama's policies in the Middle East are indistinguishable from those of Bush because the Likud Party calls the shots on U.S Middle East policy. Obama's acceptance of the phony 9/11 tale on which Bush's policies rested guarantees that the deception will continue in the favor of the perpetratprs of 9/11 and other false flag attacks. You do realize that the U.S. vetoed a U.N. investigation into the latest bloodbath in Gaza. At this point Obama has nothing to lose in defying the Likud - so why doesn't he?

Scientists and engineers are just as subject to corruption as anyone else. If the last hundred years teaches us anything it should tell us that science and engineering are controlled by government and academia which in turn are controlled by big money and business interests.

Reagan wasn't asleep, but rather foolishly intervened in Israel's invasion of Lebanon. He should have remembered what Israel did to the USS Liberty.
