    I’ve yet to understand why it is that this individuals comments on the holocaust and on the Israeli state should affect anything having to do with us here in America?

    *We have yet to rebuild the gulf coast in the wake of Katrina.

    *We have yet to build ANYTHING on the land where the Sept. 11 attacks occurred in NYC.

    *We have yet to find ANY justification for our unilateral war against the Iraqi government and now its citizens.

    Do we really have nothing better to spend our time on in this country than on the comments of another nations leader on the Israeli state?

    They say he is a murderer, a tyrant, a terrorist, etc…

    Has OUR president Bush not been accused of the same?
    Does anyone reading this not believe that Bush is any and all of these? Should Bush not be tried for crimes against humanity?

    Is it the arrogance of the American media to point out this mans glaring faults while sleeping on the unprovoked war our US government unleashed upon a sovereign nation in Iraq?

    So Saddam, whom the US government PUT into power in Iraq in the first place, is gone?

    *DO YOU FEEL SAFER TODAY?

    *WERE YOU FEELING “UNSAFE” WITH HIM IN POWER?

    *DOES IT NOT SCARE YOU MORE TO TRUST IN OUR GOVERNMENT AFTER ALL OF THE EXPOSED LIES LEADING UP TO THE UNNECESSARY DEATHS OF OVER 3800 AMERICAN MILITARY PERSONNEL IN CONFLICT IN A NATION THAT HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT TRANSPIRED HERE ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001?

    Let us begin to STOP the pretense that the Israeli government is this wholly FAULTLESS victim in all of this. The Israeli people are not representative of the Israeli governments reprehensible record of crimes against humanity in the charge of the Palestinian people.

    *Why not have THAT dialogue?

    *What, will I now be labeled an anti-semite for my factual view of the Israeli government?

    People PLEASE wake up and begin the call to take OUR unrepresentative government back!!!

    err… are all comments around here so incoherent? I recognize that not everyone has USA English as native, but… I think the first poster here did. He raises valid points in such a way that I feel disinclined to talk, even as he asks to continue the dialogue.

    I pass this on, to Ray, and ask, “Do better?”
