To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

Suffer the little children. The Israelis said they're only targeting Hamas. So far almost 100 children are dead. I've seen far worse than this but you see what's going on. You won't see this on mainstream news. Yes I know Israelis got bombed too and anyone who says 'It can't be helped' needs a head or heart transplant!
.....
The US government funds Israel almost $3 billion a year in military funding and in the last week over 85 children were killed. Remember to Obama won the Nobel peace prize & he has blood on he's hands from these children.
 
John Farnham You have to love the baldness of the propaganda. 'Israel needs to defend itself.' http://jewishvoiceforpeace.org/content/us-military-aid-and-israel youtube.com/watch?v=4-Thol-sKGc Meanwhile Iran is a big threat because A. says there is no lesson learned by Israelis from Jewish suffering in Europe - except to inflict the same racism on fellow Samaritan Semites Here's the latest go-round of the same questions asked for decades http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDhYVED8Zi8 But n. We are to be afraid of the WMD threat of people who hold WMD disarmament conferences and have civilian power projects built by Russia, advised scientifically by Russians, fueled and inspected by Russians. They are so in control of these projects in their back yard that they have an attitude - publicly stated by Putin - that an attack on these facilities will be regarded as an attack on Russia itself. Yet this warning from a known holder of MIRV ed ICBMs is not 'credible.' But the threat of people without WMD who have had the opportunity to acquire it for decades is a horror. Riiight.

U.S. Military Aid and Israel

Jewish Voice for Peace Statement on Peace, U.S. Military Aid and Israel, 2004


Why we urge the U.S. government to suspend military aid to Israel until it ends its 37-year occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem.

U.S. military aid to Israel has a dramatic effect on Israel's policies towards the Palestinians. It has increasingly been used not to pay for defense but to finance the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands. It keeps Israel from facing the difficult but necessary challenges of building a more democratic society, and encourages solving deep-rooted problems by military rather than peaceful and more effective means.
The U.S. funding that pays for the guns and ammunition, F-16 bombers, and Apache helicopters that are used to carry out Israel's occupation of Palestinian land and people serves neither Israelis, Palestinians, nor Americans.
In short, Israel cannot build a society based on the principles of democracy, human rights, and compliance with international law while brutally occupying another people and their land. The United States is currently paying for that occupation with its annual aid. That's why Jewish Voice for Peace urges the U.S. government to suspend military aid to Israel until Israel ends its 37-year occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem.

U.S. Tax Dollars at Work: Calculating Foreign Aid to Israel

Calculating the exact amount of U.S. aid to Israel, however, is difficult. One has to make estimates because much of the aid is buried in the budgets of other government agencies, mostly the Department of Defense (DOD).

The UN educating the world.
Since its origins, the IPCC has been open and explicit about seeking to generate a ‘scientific consensus’ around climate change and especially about the role of humans in climate change
( It's nice to know that technological shamans can get away with claiming to foretell the future if they use appropriate cultural motifs to disarm claims of G.I.G.O. while decrying Scientific Method...which requires the competition of ideas )

 * Classic 'foot in mouth'  
We should be pleased that President Obama offered Hamas no comfort in his press conference in Thailand. “There’s no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. We are fully supportive of Israel’s right to defend itself. Israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory.”
