    During its short 62 years history Israel had fought 8 wars against its Arab neighbors. It had developed nuclear weapons and did not sign the NPT. It had used chemical and nuclear (DU) weapons against civilians. It violated many UN resolutions. It committed war crimes and many massacres against civilians. It had refused all Arab peaceful gestures and keeps threatening to attack its neighbors. It occupation and destruction of religious sites, especially Islamic, might provoke religious war in the region. Israel is the biggest threat to peace in the Middle East.
    NOW they are KILLING TURKISH CIVILIAN and TURKEY is FIRST COUNTY RECOGNIZE the state of ISRAEL and If US ever condemns ISRAEL violence act then next will be US citizens.
    What a TERRORIST state has US and British created to the world.
