The Democratic candidate said he's 100% pro-Israel but called Netanyahu's government racist. Is he correct or are Israel's defenders right to be upset?

By Mark Tracey The question I have a is this, With 22 Arab countries containing 22million sq. miles of territory , why is it expected of Israel, the only Jewish state in the world with only 8019 sq. miles of land, expected to give up its land for the Palestinians. This is more about elimination of the Jewish state then finding a place for the Palestinians.

By Mark Tracey Crickets? No answer to that one...

By Vincent D'Emidio Oh, do you want an answer to that nonsense, eh, Republican? Okay, how about this...the West Bank (HARDLY "Judea" or "Samaria") was NEVER part of the MODERN State of Israel, according to the Balfour Agreement. It was part of Jordan. Sinai was NEVER part of the MODERN State of Israel, it was part of Egypt. The Golan Heights was NEVER part of the MODERN State of Israel, it was a part of Syria.

In 1967, the IDF launched a SNEAK ATTACK on Egypt, STARTING the War! When the war ended, Israel KEPT those lands that they stole from the "Arab States". You'll never hear that on Fox News, NEVER! Y'know what else you won't hear from those Neo-Con LOWLIFES? You won't hear about the Israeli ATTACK on the USS Liberty, an American research ship.

I'm starting to hear crickets, too!

By Mark Tracey Did it take you the whole 30 days to one up with that answer?
You have some of the facts correct, but your interpretation and framing of those facts and motivations are suspect.
Israel subsequently made peace with Egypt and returned Egyptian land conquered during the war.

By Vincent D'Emidio No, it didn't take me a month...I just didn't receive a notification about your comment. What is suspect about my "interpretation and framing of those facts"? Are you suggesting that I am prejudiced against Jewish folk? You forget my experiences...growing up poor in the ghetto, I am incapable of racism...I've lived with all kinda po' folks, of all nationalities. True racism is a "province" of those who live in gated communities, the rich and powerful.

Just because I DESPISE Binyamin "Too many Arabs are voting" Netanyahu doesn't make me prejudiced against Israelis, just as my HATRED for bible-bangers doesn't make me prejudiced against TRUE Christians. It's the big-mouthed troublemakers that I don't like...and Binyamin, Trump, Duterte (of the Phillipines) and Bolsonaro (of Brazil) belong on that list.

By Mark Tracey I don't like his politics, it has nothing to do with Soros being a Jew.
In fact, it didn't even occur to me that he could be a Jew until you brought it up.

Of course not. Fox News and Rush Lint-brain -- your two, ahem, "news sources" -- will NEVER let that, ah, "secret" out! Do you really wanna hear the truth about Israel? Then check out the New Israel Fund, or J Street...they tell it like it is!

Alright, FINALLY! Your Liberated Bona Fides are showing...it's about time! Now you must realize that the "right wing" (actually, the WRONG wing) is the ENEMY. Give them NO assistance. They're wrong about Marijuana, they're wrong about the Sexual Revolution, they're wrong about Gay folks, they're wrong about religion...they're wrong about EVERYTHING!

By William Dykeman this is blood slander

By William Dykeman Blood libel or ritual murder libel (also blood accusation)[1][2] is an antisemitic canard[3][4][5] accusing Jews of murdering Christian children in order to use their blood as part of religious rituals.[1][2][6] Historically, these claims—alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration—have been a major theme of the persecution of Jews in Europe.[4]

Blood libels typically claim that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover, although this element was allegedly absent in the earliest cases which claimed that then-contemporary Jews reenacted the crucifixion. The accusations often assert that the blood of the children of Christians is especially coveted, and, historically, blood libel claims have been made in order to account for the otherwise unexplained deaths of children. In some cases, the alleged victim of human sacrifice has become venerated as a martyr. Three of these – William of Norwich, Little Saint Hugh of Lincoln, and Simon of Trent – became objects of local cults and veneration, and in some cases they were added to the General Roman Calendar. One, Gavriil Belostoksky, was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.

In Jewish lore, blood libels were the impetus for the creation of the Golem of Prague by Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel in the 16th century.[7] According to Walter Laqueur:

Altogether, there have been about 150 recorded cases of blood libel (not to mention thousands of rumors) that resulted in the arrest and killing of Jews throughout history, most of them in the Middle Ages. In almost every case, Jews were murdered, sometimes by a mob, sometimes following torture and a trial.[8]

The term 'blood libel' has also been used to refer to any unpleasant or damaging false accusation, and it has taken on a broader metaphorical meaning. However, this usage remains controversial, and Jewish groups have objected to such usage.
