    Hi Al, liking the more opinionated Al, keep going. I think you made some good points that have to be made about the Middle East. In my opinion, for what it’s worth, yes Israel has a clear right to exist, not an issue. I have many Jewish friends in the US and UK and honestly they are embarrassed how the Zionists in Israel act, there will never be any peace until you embrace peace. I’m not saying I know how to achieve it, but I’m sure shooting people doesn’t make it happen. Finally, a big concern for me is Israel bombing mostly Iranian targets in Syria, one day you’re going to hit the wrong target i.e. Russians, then what is Russia to do? Does, it do nothing or does it start shooting down some Israeli planes. Then what does America do? That’s what gives me the fear, we need to stop this madness before it really gets going

    They committed the genocide fair and square, they continue it today, fair and square.

    What country doesnt exist from genocide somewhere along the line?

    To heck with the Balfour declaration, the brits had no “right” to do that, but they didnt need any stinky “rights”
    They simply had to kill anyone that objected, which they have done and continue to do today. All fair and square.

    Once again I am very disappointed with the ignorance that continues to be spewed.I have to question the motives of those who continue to provide commentary and believe that 19 hijackers from a foreign Country came into the U S and carried out 9/11 with out any assistance. I had to call you out Mr. Korelin when you said “As A Practicing Jew” you couldn’t vote for either candidate running for President. It was me who had to point out that collectively voting together was part of being an American Citizen.
    Yourself and your new guest act if only one Palestinian have been shot. Until the both of you can wake the hell up and figure out that killing people isn’t the answer all the rest of us can do is pray for you.

      JohnK I never said that I was a practicing Jew because I am not.

      Regarding only one killing, I was using that as an example. Notice that I never backed down and agreed with Larry. Israel has been over the top in many instances .

    Cory says that what America needs is a unifier,someone to bring the country together.
    This was interesting to me as Big Al nails the point down when he said “As a practicing Jew”, not as an American I’m not questioning your patriotism Big Al,it’s just a lot of people are this first and an American second. Regardless of how bad all the candidates are, it is our duty as Americans to vote.
    Doc is spot on when he talks about the media and their agenda.
    Fortunately for us, the JASTA bill was passed.I believe this single piece of legislation will prove to be more important than the Presidential election.
    What this has done is to make the parties responsible for State sponsored terrorism accountable for their actions,regardless of their sexual orientations.
    The candidates we have for President is exactly what we deserve as a Nation. Wde have turned a blind eye to the killing and the pagan worshiping ilks of those who have been elected to the positions of power to lead us for far to long.
