What country is Israel a threat to?

They also have ICBMs.

I still hold by my original statement about Israel though. The Israeli government is just poorly structured and the current PM is just too dangerous to be in charge.
Why do you hate Jews?
Fvck you, you damn Nazi.
;)
Yeah, I really hate myself a lot.
ahh another self-hating jew!

I was using the same logic as the thread title.
You think Israel is a threat? You must be an anti-semite.

Seriously though.
Israel is a threat because they have the military power to respond in a big way if any of the arab countries decide to attack them in a more blatant way than just sending suicide bombers to murder children.
I thouht it was interesting that they had planned to assasinate Saddam in retaliation for the SCUD attacks. Seems a little odd that they would scrap that plan simply because of a training accident though.

Every country in the middle east. If Israel wanted to she could attack any near by country. See the threads about if Israel should take out the Iran nuclear reactor and when the blew up Saddams nuclear reactors.

No, it's just another Bush lie. All made up. Can't believe you fell for the neocon brainwashing.

there is a certain antisemitism that allows certain people to hold palestinians to a lower standard then israelis when it comes to political tactics. the yelling and screaming about israel while palestinians choose to kill civilians as their tool of choice. these same people are rather quiet when it comes to other stateless people like tibetans that have far stronger claims to soveriegnty.

there is a thread somewhere about an European poll that has more or less the same result
I'm going to apply the same logic like a lot of the YABA's in that thread

"Americans are anti-semites"

ofcorse people expect more of the only democracy in the middle east that pride themselves of trying to be a part of the western world

if we were to talk about tibet then we would probably all agree, thats why its not a hot topic here

The problem is that Europe is commonly viewed as racist, resentment towards immigrants, etc. So when people see a poll like that from Europe, it further advances that stereotype.

Sort of like how many on this forum are pretty quiet about Turkey's involvement in atrocities against Kurds in their region, but will demonize Saddam for doing essentially the same thing? Get used to it, I did.

That was quite a while ago and it was also done by a completely different government. While you can't ignore what happened, you have to realize it was not the current government that did it, although problems do still remain between the Kurds and Turks. I mean, if we had to constantly hold into account what every nation has done in the past; who could avoid any type of scrutiny?

You really should have a job as a journalist.
"43% Of AMericans are Anti-Semites" is not what the article is about, nor what it finds, and it takes some very bad logic to make it so. I would be one of the 43%. Pissing contests are fine when it's votes, records and such, our politicians do it all the time. It's another when the pissing contest causes lots of innocent people to do, and more hate--real hate--to be spread. There are two basic solutions: give Israel what it needs to obliterate Palestine, or give Israel nothing and fund Palestine. Neither are good options for stopping it.

idiot.
What were the official boarders of Israel when she was created?
How countries has Israel been at war with the past with?
They have nukes?

It is a religious states with goals of promoting it's religion. The only reason Israel isn't expanding faster is that the US would cut of the gravey train
Your information is flawed, Spencer. You mention that Israel has been in many wars - tell me, what do you consider Israel's role in these wars? Consider the war of independence, which happened when all 6 neighboring Arab countries attacked Israel after it declared independence. Consider the 6-Day war, which was also in defense of Israeli peace. Consider the Yom Kippur War, which was an attack launched by the Arabs on Israel on the Holiest day of the year - Yom Kippur. That's equivalent to the USA being attacked on Christmas, for all you gentiles. Consider the numerous suicidal Palestinian attacks on Israel over the past 20 years. Get your information straight before you go spouting off incorrect "facts."

Different thread, different subject. If you had read the other thread this one is based on, you'd realize this was sarcasm meant to tweak Euro/French bashers.

If the ADL is most concerned with anti-sematism, they should be concerned with getting rid of sharon. He is the worst thing for the image of israelis just as bush is for the image of americans.

Btw, whats the equivalent catchy racist term for those against the american political/economic agenda?
