Israel
Beginning to sound like it was scripted…
Israel is not strong as the US.
There are two concurent wars, in the north and in the south.
You cannot start a third front with Iran which is a major force and is 80 times biger than Israel.
Also, Iran nuclear facilities are buried deep in the ground, so, even with the help of the US it will be a challenge to hit all of them.

Oh I get that and agree. Its just that the whole thing was odd from the start. Iran telegraphing day and time of their attack, Israel hitting back in such a limited way that their own officials were saying WTF why bother?

I dunno the whole affair just seems odd

Numbers hasn't stopped Israel from protecting itself in the past. Don't over estimate the abilities of a poorly trained military, no matter the size. But I do agree, a third front would be bad.

Remember, that prior to 1914, 1939 .. Europe also was very different and after 1948 had many displaced people .. Europe due to ethnic conflictions has a full history of wars and slaughter of innocents, and enslavement.

The Cold War and the New Global Order after WWII created the closest thing to some sort of stability, along with the creation of the EU.

Justice .. unfortunately, is missing for many people in this world, and I do not see a good solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict .. at this point the USA has to stick with what makes the most sense for the USA, and that is not having a Hamas / Iranian proxy state there

Since this thread is about Israel, this is something that has me puzzled: I saw video of a street interview a couple of years ago in NYC where the pollster asked a woman if she was Jewish and she said "yes." He then asked her if she voted Democrat or Republican and she said "Democrat." He then asked her, is so many words, why she voted Democrat and her terse answer was (paraphrased) "...Well, because New York Jews always have been Democrats." That was her reason and I've heard that's the reason many, if not most, NY Jews cite for their political stance. :confused:

Despite it all, America’s Jews are still voting for the Democrats
Because that is where their heart is (the Democrat Party and Hollywood) -- not in Israel. They will only support Israel if the Democrats are in control over there. You ever wonder why Obama tried to influence their election back then and just recently Schumer called for the take down of Netanyahu?

These Democrats are up to no good no matter where they are in the world. The party of no sense!

Remember this...there will never, ever, be any good solution nor will there ever be any peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I have always stand by this creed since the day I saw the Backstabber grinning and shaking hands with Rabin back in the 90s. I never trusted that man nor anyone with Muslim heritage who will sign any peace treaty with Israel. Muslims hate Jews just like the ayatollahs of Iran hates Americans and Jews. Period. Their allah is not the same as The God of Abraham, Moses, Isaac and David. Nope. With that said, how can there be peace when the other is hell-bent to annihilate the other??? Water and oil do not mix. Don't fool yourselves -- there will be no peace in the Middle East.
