I too stand with Israel, and I think Israel needs to bring the hammer down and strike now!

Are you crazy Richard? Not only is Israel a vital ally because they can actually be dealt with in a civilized manor, but also for all their lack of discretion (which you can’t blame them much when you see what surrounds them) they actually let their people have rights and even have a Muslim population with rights. Try sending Jews to any Muslim country and see how well they are treated, not to mention Muslims are far more invasive world wide than Jews. What do Jews do? Make lots of money and make good movies? I guess you could go on and one with the media and crap but even then they seem like good people.

I stand with Israel . Time to stop accommadating the demsnds of a vile people who take advantage of Israel and the hard work to create and sustain a civilized nation. If yhe Israelis were not there the area would be just another stink hole of Islamists murdering one another and with no rights for women.
Israel has shown great restraint and patience while dealing with fanatics who want them wiped off the map.
Perhaps it is time to irradicate this scourge of Islamist incursion once and for all, whatever it takes.

No sympathy for Israel from me. You Zionists have been involved in some shady shit as of lately. I don’t like Muslims neither, but I no longer feel like Israel is worth defending. Let them fight their own battles from now on, the “goyim” tire of defending a bully.

It is time for Israel to make a preemptive strike on Iran. Nuke, that is.

I wonder how many of the detainees that Obama released are back fighting against the US and the rest of the civilized world
