Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Rrrright it Must Be the LobbY


"There are two ideas that America, even now, will support; the ideally good and the underdog. Israel falls into both of these categories."

..John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt have released a paper titled “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” They attempt to explain how Israeli lobbies are guiding the policy of the United States in the Middle East region..
Israel the Good Underdog clarifies.

Israel is the lone democracy in a sea of despots and oppression. Despite continuous harassment they have been able to build a successful society in a sea of despair. For the last 58 years Israel has done its best to establish and maintain this democracy. Living in an area smaller than the state of New Jersey they have been able to stave off attacks from the enemies that surround them. In fact, they are a constant reminder to the surrounding nations of their own failures. Despite living in a terrain that is not conducive to crop growth they have been able, with the exception of grain, to be self sustainable. With a labor force of less than 2.5 million they have a GDP of $123 billion. Because of their lack of resources they have learned to excel in the services sector of business.

Being a relative sliver of land they have been able to defend themselves physically and ideologically from their surrounding enemies. They have stood up against nations that have
superior resources and finances. The only true ally that they have has is the United States.

Every day they face homicide bombers and enemies on the brink. They have had to watch as diplomats made excuses for the actions of those who wish to destroy Israel...

They have watched murderous thugs receive peace prizes and awards from the world body. Despite this, they continue to fight for their right to exist. Had their neighbors accepted the partition in 1948 none of what they face today would be occurring."




Trudat!

Did you know that Israel celebrates Independence Day by holding a Bible contest..All citizens have health care..Airplanes have sky marshals, (go figure!)..
Close to 99% of all Israelis have families, and are regularly in touch
with them...

Western societies are just that: "societies". Israel is made up of
"a People",
..and no mere amalgam of private selves releasing a paper titled “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy.” can change that fact.

    We can learn a lot from Isreal, and the courage they show everyday.

    Great article wht:>) I saw this book on CSPAN Book TV one weekend. Israel is an amazing country. Instead of trying to "wipe them off the map" their neighbors would be wise to befriend them and learn from them!

    The operative word and missing condition in the above is that their neighbors are not wise. As wise as the Israelis are, the mussies are mentally deficient.

    God bless Israel! God bless America! and God bless Texas!

    The lesson that the people, of the Land of Israel, teaches all of us, is one of perservence and living a life directed by a moral/ethical credo. An ability to look away from public opinion and violence and continue unabated in a path that promotes all that is RIGHT against all that is LEFT!!!!

    That is such a good quote, and very true.

    hmmm...you think people would get a clue....hmmm...you think countries like france and russia would get a clue....hmmm...you think idiots like the leftists and liberals in this country would figure it out...but NOOOO, what do they say? "the problem is israel." "the problem is capitalism." "the problem is imperialism." well it's time for a reality check, the problem isn't israel, capitalism, imperialism or even the united states. the problem is not calling evil what it is, evil. the problem is attempting to make everything, everyone and every belief system morally equivalent-reality check- they are not. there is good and there is evil in the world and israel and the united states are not the evil. they are not perfect, but again they are not the evil that other wish to make them.

    Why do we see American flags burned by Muslims all over the world and in our streets in Washington DC as well.? ... Do we ever see such a thing done by either Christians or Jews? I think not. Just look at the faces of Palestinians cheering in the streets, as they burn our flag. You can see the Hatred . It's there in the faces of the elderly and in the faces of the children. They hate us and it's obvious that it's instilled in them from the day they were born.
