And the few others are nothing but words nobody hears…look buddy…look around for a cause that might be more rewarding..because this one is lost..lost..lost..lost..

      Mister, you are going to have a HUGE surprise one of these bright days when AIPAC is revealed for what it is, which is a 5th column organization that is cutting away at the foundations of my country, and I do not like it one little bit. Were Israel an honorable nation, which it is not, that might be different. Its callous and sadistic treatment of the Palestinian people throughout its history reveal it for what it is. I am “delusional”? Perhaps you should look in the mirror, Mr. Bender. You who believes that the West Bank belongs to Israel because they “won” it in a war with Jordan, yet ignore the fact that according to international law, it is ILLEGAL for an occupying nation to build settlements in occupied territory. Not that that makes a penny’s worth of different to Mr. Netanyahu. If Israel does not change, it is likely to destroy itself.

      If you don’t like what I say, Mr. Bender, then don’t come back. Oh . . . I think you forgot to read my post titled “Does Israel Have a Future?” It’ll give you a little light reading and a cause for laughter.
