    hey Brieske,
    that was pretty quick... they must pay really well to keep an eye on those comments...

    what benefits does the US get from a country which regularly has been spying on it... does the name Jonathan Pollard mean something?
    does the name USS Liberty mean something?

    @Jim...hey there. I must take exceoption to your "Israel follows the rules of war" comment. Israel has, and has had, nuclear weapons illegally for years now. their nuclear program is NOT inspected by the IAEA like Iran's are. There have been about 100 UN resolutions against Israel for this and other (mostly MOSSAD) illegal activities. Israel thumbs it's nose at international law. plus they murdered Rachell Corrie.

    When monsters are free after participating in murdering 6 million of your people or using suicide bombers to cowardly kill your innocent civilians and athletes, then it is permitted by God to create a highly skilled unit of assassins to counter barbaric actions in a more affective lethal way.
    I wouldn't want the Mossad after me. Because no matter how much security one has, they will get you.
    I'm sure mistakes have been made (it's inevitable people are not perfect and situations can become fluid and change) but many more lives saved because the bad guys fear the Mossad.I don't care what the U.N. says, they are a powerless weak cowardly group of thieves who nothing about life in Israel. Or what it's like to be given the choice of killing a civililian or have yourself and your fellow soldiers killed by the Hamas terrorist firing at you from behind a civilian.
    Me, I'm sending that civilian to Heaven. Then shooting the Hamas terrorist to wound him. So he watch as I put bullet between his eyes.

    @Jim...Russia endured the loss of 20 million people. So by your logic, Russia's permissible assasination squad wouldn't fit in Texas. And read your bible Jim. Read in the old testament about how Israel treated the Caananites. Women and children were not spared.. Should we hold modern-day Israel accountable? Of course not.

    These "unbreakable ties" Biden says exist between Israel and US. Are they in the form of peace-treaties? Are they written formal agreements? Or are they based soley on word of mouth. Does anyone here know?
