stiln... be careful... you might get the anti-semite accusations...

I personally like and respect jewish people but see our support of israel as being a little nutty and perhaps biblical in nature trying to avoid the appearance of the anti-christ...

I think  it is possible to criticize israel with objectively with out being antisemetic...

it would be like saying criticizing obama is racist

I wish we wouldn't show up to the U.N. Human rights Review.  

Kind of shows how hypocritical we are when we depend on the slave labor of the Chinese, and look the other way as they brutally suppress their population, whilst we give guns to drug cartels in Mexico, Fighter Jets to the Muslim Brotherhood, and surface to air missiles to Al Qaeda, the LIFG and any other radical Islamist that could possibly topple a stable country.

but some how we think it is our duty to engage in reckless and senseless spending of money, resources and lives policing others and convincing them to do things our way...

it seems as bad as those with an antigay agenda that end up being closet cases in the end

You tell me DH? Let me ask you this - Could the UN possibly be biased? Is the UN comprised of regimes that brutalize their own people and deny them their basic rights? China? Iran? Syria? Why single out Israel for condemnation?

lords, why do you agree with my post?

there are different reasons to side with my point of view...  but as individuals thinkers I often ask why you think something because it is based on your personal perception and not the prescribed partisan rhetoric and dictate the world view to the lemmings...
