Does Israel not have the right to defend itself? And, at the risk of labouring the point, argumentum ad verecundiam and ad populum are not persuasive in the slightest.
I think you missed the point of me linking the article in this context
in your style that would be:

(i posted the link to show how the united states was defending israel blindly and the quote was supposed to help you spot that)

They're both full of misguided people fighting due to nonsensical religious beliefs(and some are just simply assholes I'm sure), but if I had to take a side it'd be w/Israel only because they seem to have a slightly less retarded culture - less misogynistic for sure.
There's no real aggressor anymore - it's like gang wars, they've been at it for so long each side can justify anything as revenge for past offenses from the other side.

You're seriously asking why the past is relevant in the Israeli/Palestine conflict. My gosh we really have fallen from lofty heights of AJOT political discussion and into a debauched, murky world where history doesn't matter and a single line White House statement vindicates your position that the defence of a secular-democracy and ally from annihilationist forces is "blind". Although, my threads tend to run on this trajectory.
I guess i was a bit vague but i meant that why should the past matter in the argument that the united states is blindly supporting israel, nothing to do with israel/palestine
also, its hard to imagine a country getting into as many religious conflicts as israel being completely secular

I'm not condoning the actions of either side but I definitely don't support an oppressive society such as Israel.

I don't imagine how anyone could call a Jewish state secular...
Blindly defending? You must be joking. There is nothing blind about the defence of a secular democracy against annihilationist forces. And 23% of the world population, is that meant to be impressive? As I said, truth isn't found in consensus, especially not the consensus of explicitly anti-Semitic countries.
Both parties have done their fair share of atrocities but you are fucking right I'd side with Israel in a second.
Hamas is nothing but fundamentalist religious terrorists that are unwilling to communicate and negotiate with a very uneducated population: Read very dangerous and spontaneous.
Israel is pretty much the same except they are willing to negotiate and they are educated.
I don't know why Palestine's arab brothers never seem to want to help them with anything other than annihilating the Jews. You think Syria/Jordan would allow refuge for them..since you know, those countries all use to be one of the same territory.
I like this quote:
The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms there would be no more war
History is important and understanding that Israel is not situated in a place like Europe/NA is a huge deal and something to keep in mind when talking about how they deal with terrorism and the Palestinians. I'm not saying what they have done is excusable but it is certainly understandable.
The US providing them protection is needed. Either that or the US would have to turn face and tactically bomb the shit out of them. Remember this is a nuclear armed state in a very unstable area. If they (Israel) were invaded again and things looked grim for them....I'd hate to think what would happen.

What countries not on my border do is not a concern of mine; and my country should not be present on either side.
unfortunately the united states is concerned with anything that happens anywhere in the world and is present almost everywhere

I'm far more concerned with my children that can not read and my people that starve than sending my young men to their deaths in a country they do not belong in.
Good. I think it is incredibly ignorant and irresponsible for the west not to interfere with international conflicts. Call it evil or arrogant, but it is necessary.

If any country was launching 500+ missiles in to a city in the USA --I think it's pretty clear we'd respond by reinstating scorched earth policy. I am not saying it's "right", but we wouldn't even blink.
Israel is well armed, and fully capable of resolving their issues militarily without the aid of it's allies. I am not an advocate of war, but I am shocked at Israel's reluctance to wage it.
