Extremists' ascent makes US-Israel relationship more dangerous to civilians and military
Wonderfully written article, Brian. It makes me nauseous to have to accept that my tax dollars are supporting the APARTHEID NATION.
The most those Israelis will do for now, if the shaking pillars of democracy are toppled, is to disengage and continue enjoying life in the Tel Aviv bubble. Many will simply emigrate.
Brian McGlinchey's article is very informative. So many people say the people in Muslim Countries hate us for our freedom and equality. That is not the case. They hate the US for its support for Israel which commits ethnic cleansing against Palestinians and Israeli Arabs, repeatedly invades Lebanon and refuses to return the Golan Heights to Syria and the US and UK bombed Iraq from the No Fly Zones after the Gulf War ended and before the Iraq War began and declared war on Iraq despite the fact there were no WMD's and Iraq was not involved in the 9/11 attacks in the US.
Since 1948 the US has been a steadfast ally of Israel. While this support has contributed to the US being labeled the "Great Satan," it is only one factor.
I am not sure we would even be interested in the Arab world, except for our thirst for oil.
We interfere politically and culturally due to our desire for oil, not our support of Israel.
Thank you for this well written and well-sourced piece. Our press has, since 9/12/2001, avoided an informed, rational discussion of the reasons for the attacks. I read/heard somewhere (Scott Horton, I believe) that one motivation was that the US had air force bases in Muslim holy lands and never removed them after promising to do so. In any event, I appreciate any detailed, well-sourced discussion regarding the motivations for the 9/11 attacks. Again, thank you. ~Steve, Richmond, VA
Yes, America should cut Israel loose. When? Several decades ago, if possible. If it's too late for that, then today, now.
The most obscene pile of crap I have read in years.
I hope the author's mother is half as ashamed as well she should be.
Quit spamming my inbox, dirt bag Nazi trash.
