And whose god should we pray to? Whoever claims responsibility for this mess we're in under their care, I refuse to acknowledge as my god ~ he/she is just hateful and vengeful.
Just as I thought ~ zablededodo didn't go look at the map of Palestine before and after 1948. What a lazy, lying neo-con ~ can't stand the truth.
Zabledeedodo belches: "For a nation that has "invaded" other countries, and is "eager to conquer lands" they sure have done a poor job of it. Israel has given up land, actually. It's pretty small, and it's not getting any bigger. So where are these conquered lands?"
Your lack of history and facts is truly pathetic. Go look at a map of Palestine pre-1948 as compared to today. You don't have the desire to look at facts, just propaganda spouted by your neo-con nut jobs. I didn't say that Hamas and Palestine have not been shooting into Israel, I said Israel likes to provoke these poor people living in what amounts to a concentration camp so they can play on the sympathy to get the support of bombs and missiles from good old American imbeciles like you. And yes, the United States started out as a nation of cruelty to the native people and not only didn't give them a country, but took theirs by killing as many as possible ~ you deny that? you proud of that? Then we rob Africans to come build this country because the lazy whites wouldn't do the work that needed to be done. Your argument is pathetic!
Stop buying into what Zionists claim Israel "has to do" and look at what Israel has actually done. The maps tell the story of a nation eager to conquer lands which do not belong to it. Israel has invaded virtually every nation it shares borders with, including Syria and Lebanon, and as the map above shows has almost conquered Palestine and is ready to "ethnically cleanse" the region. Far from being the poor victimized society desperately defending itself Israel likes to pretend it is in order to wrest more money from Americans, Israel is in fact the most militarily aggressive nation in the region.
Israel has ALWAYS portrayed non-Israelis as animals, in order to make it easier for the American tax payers who pay for the weapons, to accept their killing. And Israel has always resorted to staged terror bombings to further its agenda, such as the Lavon affair and more recently when a supposed suicide bomber turned out to be a known Israeli collaborator.
No, zab, you're wrong ~ this issue started many, many years ago. You can't dismiss history when dealing with the present.
zablededodo ~ you need to catch up on your history lessons.
If you want to go back to the beginning, then the first known civilized inhabitants of Palestine were the Canaanites about 6000 years ago. According to the bible, Abraham immigrated to Palestine (Canaan) and was a refugee with the Canaanites. Abraham's son Isaac married a Canaanite, so did his son Jacob, and his children after him. Thus the descendants of Jacob (the Israelites are at least 87.5% Canaanite blood). The Palestinians are considered the descendant of the Canaanites. Because of the above, genetically, the Palestinians and the original Israelites (not the converts to Judaism) have almost identical genes.
So whether you consider the recent history or the old history, the Palestinians were there first. However the problem is not who was there first. Palestine could have taken both peoples. Muslims, Christians and Jews had lived in Palestine peacefully together for hundreds of years before Israel. The problem is that the Zionists ethnically cleansed the native population and never allowed them to return in spite of several UN resolutions.
“I wish there was more GOP interest when the same issue arose during the Bush administration, where they audited a progressive church in my district in what look liked a very selective way,” California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on MSNBC Monday. “I found only one Republican, [North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones], that would join me in calling for an investigation during the Bush administration. I’m glad now that the GOP has found interest in this issue and it ought to be a bipartisan concern.”
The well-known church, All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, became a bit of a cause célèbre on the left after the IRS threatened to revoke the church’s tax-exempt status over an anti-Iraq War sermon the Sunday before the 2004 election. “Jesus [would say], ‘Mr. President, your doctrine of preemptive war is a failed doctrine,’” rector George Regas said from the dais.
Under George W. Bush, the IRS also went after the NAACP and Greenpeace. Where was your concern then?
J. Russell George, Inspector General (appointed by GWB) and his office have faced criticism after a spokesman for the inspector general said they were only tasked with looking into whether conservative groups faced tough IRS scrutiny.
Documents released this week showed other groups — including liberal and nonpartisan organizations — also received scrutiny from the IRS, and Democrats have suggested this wasn't noted when the so-called scandal broke because of the IG's focus on conservative groups.
GameOn, why don't you name the 'conservative groups' targeted? You're the one who brought this subject to the forum, not me.
GameOn is your typical Faux News watcher ~ lies and half-truths (which are still lies).
Washington (CNN) -- The Internal Revenue Service targeted liberal groups as well as conservatives seeking tax-exempt status, a Democratic congressman charged on Monday after the agency acknowledged the inappropriate practice continued until last month.
Rep. Sander Levin said the term "progressives" was included on IRS screening lists of applicants for tax-exempt status made available to Congress.
