The Bible states that there will never be peace there. Peace will never be ALLOWED to happen there, beause if it did, it would render the bible null and void.

Israel took the land in the 1967 war because they had no choice. They had to occupy it for security purposes and for good reason. Israel was attacked because the muslims wanted to wipe Israel off the map. Its only fitting the muslims lose their land. Now our clueless president wants Israel to simply give back the land to the people who will not even recognize their right to exist. The Palestinians do not want peace only the destruction of Israel. Israel cannot afford to return the land.

Mexico wants us to give back part of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California that we took during the war. When is this going to stop? We also gained Puerto Rico and Guam during the Spanish American War. Is Spain going to demand that we return them?

This East Texan isn't unanimous in opposition with the long held plan for peace in the Middle-East. I am no more in favor of Israel claiming those Palestinian lands invaded in 1968 than I would be of Germany claiming France after Hitler's invasion in 1940. Our zionist controlled media in league with the Whitehouse and a congress heavily influenced by AIPAC has for forty years led the United States and it's citizens into one conflict after another spilling American blood and spending our dollar

I wouldn't necssarily say unanimous, I'm sure you can find supporters. However,Isreal has made concessions in the past. They have never worked. After offering peace, Isreal is attacked, then accused of not wanting peace. Palestine will never be happy until Isreal no longer exists, anywhere. What I don't get is why American Jews tend to support Democrats when Democrats consistantly demonize Isreal. This is not to say the Republicans do a good job of it.
