We are not as dumb as you were made to believe. Some of us played along as long as Israel had a legitimate right to defend itself but once it started to meddle in intelligence that led us to fight wars for Israel all bets were off. The invasion of Iraq is a prime example

Good to see the folks celebrating. That is one hard place to be. I don't envy anyone who has to grow up and live there. But you sure have to respect their right to their be. As posted earlier. They were elected into power, whether WE like it or not.

Now, like all 21 year olds, they can go out, get drunk and pass out on the floor while folks write on them with Sharpies.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

How tempting it is to Americans to say we'll just wash our hands of this affair! However, after several decades of financing just one side, and arming them to the teeth, and ignoring--nay, facilitating--an endless string of war crimes and atrocities, we're in deep whether we like it or not. I just pray our new president is half as civilized as he appears to be. For that would indeed be cause for hope.

Ah... good point. Best we should do away with Democracy (what's left of it) while we still can.

I'm the one who's happy to see that there are people who are immune to Zionist propaganda.

But something can be done to reduce the damage, don't you think?

Exactly. Nobody has the right to tell people who to elect. Most importantly, nobody has the right to punish people for their choice. Israel is collectively punishing 1.5 million people just because they wanted change.. not another fraudulent government. Now, the Israeli-approved Palestinian president Mehmoud Abbas blatantly talks about automatically renewing his term as president because he knows he has the US and Israel on his side. Democracy What a joke!

LOL drunk Hamas? Not only that they don't/shouldn't drink but Gaza has a shortage of drinking water, thanks again to the Israeli blockade.
