Why does the US continue to back Israel when it clearly would be a political advantage to back the Palastinians? Do you think it's politics? Religion? Both? It bothers me that we continue to back what I would clearly call terrorism from day one. They've ignored almost ALL United Nations resolutions since they occupied Palastine...they've responded to sticks and stones with grenades and missiles. Reports came out today that they are using white phosphorus incendiary devices...yet they continue to get backing from the US...am I missing something here? Discussion open!
