    Israel is a multi-party democracy that almost never elects a majority government.
    There is a large contingent of Israeli citizenship that does not support him.

    Indeed, it was a shameful, disgusting spectacle to behold. Disturbingly reminiscent of sci's popping up on cue and hollering repeatedly during one of Miscavige's fail speeches.
    Sends the message to the world that, as far as US Congress is concerned, Israel runs this.

    Look, you gotta understand how "true" diplomacy works. Diplomacy is a gradual, step by step process in which two opposing parties work slowly, making and meeting agreements, towards a goal. In order for those agreements to work, both parties have to do their share to uphold the promises they have made. If one party (yes, i am referring to the palestinians in this case) have continued to not even acknowledge the state of israel to begin with, and continue with violent agression, despite promises to the contrary, and who have radical leaders who make religiously overtoned statements to their people, such as "pray for the destruction of israel", and basically talk the talk but who do not uphold these diplomatic agreements, such as the oslo accords, then diplomatic actions become very strained, to say the least.
    So, when an amateurish president, who is not apparently educated in the history of that region and relations between these two parties thinks that he can just go on television and play movie star making a magical declaration to win a popularity contest., it is just so absurd.

    One could say something like, in time, based on mutual cooperation, and a well-thought out, gradual plan seeking to create a peaceful coexistence between the Israelis and Palestinians, we may work towards a two-state (or other) solution. Effective diplomacy is based on education, cultivating trust, and backing well-intentioned ideas with action. And, it takes time.
    But, in a current climate wherein the Muslim Brotherhood is becoming stronger, and again, looking at this with some clear historical perspective, It is just not smart policy to make some ill conceived declaration, sounding like something about as amateur at a high school student debate class, telling one country to compromise its security by returning to some arbitrary borders, which could create an extremely unsafe condition.
    This is not just a popularity contest, and Obama looks like a fool. really.
    I wish Hillary Clinton was president. She is so much smarter and more capable.

    Maybe the United states should give Texas back to Mexico.

    If anyone believes the US is in any way standing up to Israel or lowering support/funding, they need to stop watching pantomimes and puppet shows.

    ok, lemme write this at a level which some of you might understand better....
    so, these thugs have broken into your house several times, stolen all of your stuff, and killed family members over and over. last time you tried to make peace with the thugs, by having them over for dinner and giving them some money, they paid you back by burning down your house and killing your dog. and so, i, sponge bob square pants am declaring now and forever that what you should do is give the thugs your rebuilt house and everything you have worked hard for, even though the thugs are still being assholes and bullying your kids.
    yeah, when the thugs kill your family, they even celebrate it and give candy to their children. but that shouldn't matter.
    who cares right, just give them everything because its your fault that they killed your dog and raped your wife.

    At one time, hitchhiking was pretty common in israel, and it was a friendly common thing to do, to give people a lift.
    One day, a dear friend of mine, who was commuting home from the army was picked up by two palestinians dressed as orthodox jews. They murdered him. He was absolutely innocent. We were going to out on a date Saturday night. The last time I saw him was at his funeral.

    if i was paranoid, i'd accuse you of being an osa trying to de-rail us from Cultfight.
  35. To say nothing of the content of anyone's posts, but to cool down your tinfoil a bit I'll point out that everyone ITT are regular posters, so quit with the paid propagandist shtick.

    No. that is how i refer to people who cannot express their ideas and agree to disagree and progress on, in a forward thinking, intelligent way.
    people who use insults and retorts and call people names without even knowing who in the world, or what sort of person they are talking to.
    people who are incapable of being minimally respectful and considerate.

    I think that people conveniently forget the humanistic aspect that transcends politics and political figures.

    The funny thing was that some of the statements that got applauded were things that go against stated US policy on Israel.
