Jewish Occupation and Aggression?

"PLO Charter Article 15: The liberation of Palestine is a national obligation for the Arabs. It is their duty to repel the Zionist and imperialist invasion of the greater Arab homeland and to liquidate the Zionist presence in Palestine."

Saw a post on a Leftist's blog that said the best way to end terrorism is to stop supporting Israel. I quote him below. Grammatical errors left intact:

"Stop supporting Israel. The root of all terrorism stems from the fact that Israel has systematically taken over Palestinian land, and are this stage [sic] it would appear that they are carrying out genocide against the Palestinian people."

How have American Liberals (and the European Left too) come to see Israel as the aggressor? Why do they demand they give up more of what little land they have. How has the only democracy (apart from the new Iraq) in a region full of brutal dictatorships become the bad guys?


Israel isn't perfect, but women do vote there and are not executed for being raped, last I checked. Too bad the rest of the countries in that region can't say the same.

This begs the question, are these Liberals anti-semites or simply their tools?

Iraq isn’t a democracy yet.

As for Israel -- I too believe we must support and defend this nation. But the reason it is sometimes thought of as the aggressor is because of events like this:

"The Israeli bulldozer that ran over and killed American peace activist Rachel Corrie, 23, in the Gaza Strip today had killed before. A few weeks ago, on March 3, an Israeli bulldozer killed a nine-month pregnant Palestinian woman, Nuha Sweidan, while destroying the house next door in a dilapidated Gaza refugee camp. Palestinian witnesses said that Mrs. Sweidan, 33, bled to death under the rubble as she cradled her 18-month-old daughter. Her unborn baby also died."

Ray,

Equating the unfortunate deaths of a few who are caught up in violent clashes is different than the stated goals of liquidation of Jews.

Those nations surrounding Israel exist for that very reason. It's in their charters.

Here's a question for you? How are 20 of the most oil rich nations in the world unable to put an end to Palestinian's plight. The people live in poverty.

You don't think they're left to suffer because it's serves radical Islam's purposes purposes in Western press do you? Hmmm....
