Dopey Philly Inquirer Letter of the Week

John R. Powers of Ocean City has a problem with the Jooooooos:

When Hillary Clinton states emphatically that "we have an absolute commitment to Israel's security" (Wednesday), she puts the United States and all of its citizens squarely in the crosshairs of Arab anger.

We have been fostering a peace process between Israel and the Palestinians since Jimmy Carter was president, and it is time to realize that this is pure illusion on the part of Israelis.

As long as the United States backs Israel unconditionally, nothing will happen except to put American soldiers and marines and U.S. citizens at greater risk. It is a mystery why no one realizes what a great recruiting tool Israel is for al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and Muslim terrorist nations.

It is time for the United States to let Israel go it alone, and this means not only cutting off the billions of dollars in aid to a very rich nation, but also letting Israelis stand alone and face the threats they create with their intransigence.

I see, John. Like the "intransigence" of, say, wanting to exist? The "intransigence" of being fed up of being constantly attacked -- no matter WHAT they do? The "intransigence" of making concession after concession ... and getting rockets launched at you in return? And Israel is a "recruiting tool" for barbarians like al Qaeda? SO THE F*** WHAT!! Does anyone actually believe that even if Israel packed up immediately from the West Bank and Golan Heights and confined itself to its 1948 borders that groups like the Taliban and al Qaeda would cease calling for the destruction of the country and its inhabitants? If you do, then you must also believe that Barack Obama will erase the US's debt by the time he leaves office.

I could go on and on and on.

Ye gad, I'll just never comprehend moral (and mental) midgets like Powers.

And, of course, my local DA put Harris County and local citizens in the crosshairs of rapists and pedophiles when she announced that her office has an absolute commitment to prosecuting sex offenses.

But when the US put the interests of Jews second to the interests of the US from 1933-1945, we still ended up at war with the Nazis. Why would it be any different today with the Islamofascists?

Hope that making such a point doesn't get me banned here like it did at the anti-Semitic, terrorist supporting site of the LGOMB.

How many middle east countries have declared peace with Israel since its re-inception? I am only certain of one, and that came at a rather high cost (Egypt, Sadat, Begin). From my understanding, the rest have only declared cease-fires. And a state of war still exists between Israel and all the middle east as a result. The Palestinian charter, from what I recall, still has within it the end-goal of the total destruction of Israel. There are many more examples of "death to Israel" positions in the middle east and yet people here in the US still will not support Israel's right to exist.

(And, Hube, you had previously requested my email over on CSPT and I tried to give it to you via email but you apparently "spam-trashed" my email. So now you have it.)

I'm not sure whether you have already seen this or not, but here's an article that I found today that I believe compliments your post quite nicely:

Hope this was of some use to you.
