  •  There like here it is the fundamentalists (7+ / 0-)

    And those in Israel are goaded, aided and supported by the christian fundies from the USA.

    They are a plague on both lands.

    •  A lot of people forget American fundies (3+ / 0-)

      The big end time show that everyone is anticipating and already buying tickets for is the destruction of Israel that is part of the package with the return of Christ.

      That is why the fundies take trips to Israel and why they pour money into support for Israel and why they push every conceivable political representative to support Israel to the max.  

      They really don't care about Israeli people, and they really don't care about the Arab peoples of the region.  It is all a fantasy that they are into.

      But there is big money at stake, especially in US support for Israel through weapons systems.  In politics is doesn't matter what crazy notions motivate people as long as the result brings about large appropriations.  

      We would do well to be more aware of the role of US fundamentalist evangelicals in the Israel support policy arena.

      hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
