So it begins....

In today's press conference, Bush referred to the Israelis as 'our friends' and that they deserve a peaceful Palestinian state.   

See what I mean about America and Israel?   

Aren't the Palestinians are friends?  What have they done to us?  They are simply fighting for the right to exist in their own state.  Didn't the Pilgrims leave their homeland for the same reasons?   

One-sidedness really pisses me off.....  

It is unjust and unfair.  

That is one reason (the highest in the Middle East) why we are hated, people.  Because we are 'protectors' of Israel.  

WE helped to displace the Palestinians who were living in the area the Israelis were given as their Homeland.  And I don't want to hear any crap about how that land belonged to them first--it seems to me I recall from American History that the Native American Indian tribes had this land first--I see no mad rushes to give their land back to them!!  Save your rhetoric BS.  

WE protect Israel, when it is Israel who outguns (again, thanks to us) the Palestinians.  Remember the Israeli guards who were shooting their rifles at the boys throwing rocks at them?!  How about the Palestinian father clutching his young son who got caught in the crossfire of Israeli guns vs. Palestinian rocks?  Both father and son got shot.....  

We the people of the United States of America, have the attention span of a rock.

Ya know...this is one of those divided issues for me personally...but I have to say you are absolutely right.  No matter what a person's religious beliefs they do not belong in American politics (and that is why Bush is protecting Israel).  More than anything I wish there were a better solution--a way to peacefully divide the land...  I have people close to me,  personally affected on both sides of this.  At any rate you are right in your conclusions... There is SUPPOSED to be separation of Church and State.  Bush is not acting with the Government in mind.

Cat,
I can't agree with you more! You know there are going to be people that are going to argue that the Jews are Gods "choosen people" to that I argue choosen for what? Choosen to brutalize others? We have hindered the process of peace in the Middle East with or pro Israel policies! We have allowed them to stall which has inflamed insurgency and terrorism! And now we wonder why we have terrorism at home?

Cat - So you are a single mom.  Me too... I have four children, 11, 9, 7 & 5.  My nine year old is named Gracie... after Gracie Allen.  I love your venting.  My best friend, from my working outside of the home days is Jewish... I have yet to ask her opinion about the Middle East... but knowing Debra... she really doesn't care.  I, on the other hand, Roman Catholic, believe that the Palestinians were there long before the Jews... why can't they live together???  Why can't the Irish protestants, brought from England, and the Catholics, there already get along????  Take care, God bless....

I'll take your word for it Cat. Politics disinterest me unless, I see Monica Lewinsky. It then becomes my favorite subject.

I do however, adore your 'spirit' within Journals. You're much commended.

Keep it up my dear.
