I am a Jew. I support the millions of other Jews… who want a nation of Palestine.

by: David Remnick
Everyone knows it, and everyone is nervous to talk about it, because of pervasive neo-conservatism in the US and in Israel. The above-80 crowd still holds resentment against Palestine for resisting the overthrow of Palestine by force – an illogical sentiment at best, and for decades of fighting to defend themselves in the only manner they could. With rocks, sticks, and suicide. The hate of Palestine, and Islam, by the old guard Israelis is sickening, racist, and wrong. It’s NOT EVEN JEWISH.
It goes against EVERYTHING in Judaism to kill children, bomb the helpless, steal from the poor, and occupy an enemy that you created out of whole cloth. The human rights violations of Israel have sickened TWO GENERATIONS of Israelis and Jews. If I could give Palestine a way to defeat Israel, I’d be tempted to do it, that’s how little allegiance I feel towards the fascist state that Israel has always been. Not become, always been, since the UN and US forces carpet-bombed one of the most peaceful nations on Earth. Why? They just wanted it. Religion, Jerusalem, and Power. And, they wanted it ALL. Not just a small area to call home, EVERYTHING.
Israel has repeatedly assassinated, murdered, bombed, and undermined any and all efforts, legitimate, peaceful, and otherwise, by the Palestinians to obtain any sort of reasonable peace. Only when the Palestinians are too weary to fight back is there peace? No, even then, Israel continues to bulldoze, machine gun citizens, and kill wantonly. Old Israelis consider arabs to be like animals, lacking any human rights whatsoever. Remember who felt that way about Jews? Hitler. Irony, anyone?
IT IS WRONG. ISRAEL IS WRONG. Killing children is always wrong. Murder is wrong. Theft of property, freedom, money, and religion – is wrong. In short, there is nothing at all legitimate or right about Israel, and I quite honestly find logical grounds for Palestine’s declaration that Israel is a rouge state, and not a nation at all.

America wants to attack Libya on the basis of a UN resolution, but America has ignored the hundreds of UN resolutions condemning Israel. That’s called Hypocrisy.
Some of the greatest Jewish men alive today believe that ISRAEL IS WRONG, and make no mistake, objectively, I can find no proper grounds for the existence of Israel, at all. I could have EXCUSED the creation and existence of Israel, had this rouge state, this terrorist state, behaved as a mature nation and offered peace to the Palestinians, shared territory in peace, and set up a democratic nation for both peoples to share the Holy Lands.  Israel has not only failed to work for ANY peace, but has actively sought the opposite of peace for 60 years now.
There’s one terrorist state on Earth that’s bigger than Iraq, Iran, Libya, Afghanistan, and all others, combined, and that’s The United States of America.
Why is that? I believe it’s due to religious influence in national security and in our nations military leadership. Rabidly conservative, racist, sexist, and powered all but exclusively by hate, the Admirals and Generals I’ve personally met were no more intelligent than a well trained horse. Theology degrees and PolySci majors don’t make great leaders, they make great dictators and tyrants.
That religious influence to favor one side over all others has pervaded American politics since the first World War. Religion was utilized as the rallying cry, and the power gained by theological institutions has never waned, despite how many pedophiles and rapists are found to live deep within the churches. Bigamists, womanizers, scornful bigots, hate-mongerers, few religious leaders show any qualities of leadership to speak of. The Dali Lama used to own slaves. The Pope is a harshly conservative lunatic. I wouldn’t trust either man with crayons, they might hurt themselves or try to kill someone with them.
The draw of religion into power is unmistakable, and American leadership leans on it like a crutch. If America wants to remain viable as a business leader, or military leader, it must give up childish things and become an adult. China and Russia aren’t going to wait and see if we live up to the responsibility. They’re both mocking us as we squander our economy. We can not afford to keep supporting Israel, and we can’t afford to invade Libya or Iran. We don’t have enough power, cash, or ability to police the world, nor should we. Does anyone really want a world that’s locked down, owned by corporate militia, and all human rights restricted under nazi-like controls? We’re getting closer every day. Do you like it so far?
American politicians need to turn away from Israel. The military needs to stop supporting “some” terrorist states while attacking others. And, the best thing we could do is to stop spending Trillions a year fighting people WHO NEVER ATTACKED US.
This entire Israel deal is EVIL, and the only way we can stop the evil is to stop supporting evil things.
