US Gov't Is Giving Material Support to Terrorists
Syria is a cesspool we should just stay out of. No matter who wins there they won't be friendly to US and the losers will be the common people there.
Stop the $$$$$$$ !!!
We also support Israeli state terrorism in the west bank and gaza FOR DECADES. Also, didn't we support the state terror of pinnochet in chile in the 70s and 80s as well as the state terror of the shah in iran for 25 years.
Israel defends itself from terrorists who want to wipe it off the map. If the palestinians (who were never a country but a mixture from other countries who moved to Israel where there were better jobs ) stopped their terrorist attacks then the violence would end. And the west bank should be part of Israel under the original 1948 UN charter but it has been contested through several wars. The pre 1967 border is no more valid than post 1967.
Gaza and the West Bank were TAKEN during a war. It is still occupied land. Israel is STILL illegally occupying land they took and are being rewarded by our government with money, weapons and protection in the UN security council. Granted some Palestinians use terror themselves to get a different political settlement in which Israel would no longer controls the occupied territories but then again if say Canada occupied this country we might be doing similar things too.
WOW.....first of all, Palestine was a common name used until 1948 for a geographical region, not a race or nation of people! Next, "some Palestinians" use terror? Seriously?
“The Palestinian people does not [sic] exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing
our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity.
In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.
Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian
people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a
distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.”

Seems the Republicans WANT Obama to support the Rebels. so, um let me get this straight: When the Republicans push Obama to aid the Rebels it's for 'Freedom' and when Obama DOES aid the Rebels he 'supports terrorism.' There isnt a big enough Facepalm for this one
Republicans urge Obama to enforce Syria 'red line,' oppose deploying troops

Time for the US to get tough on Syria?
White House to probe alleged Syrian chemical weapons...
Congressional Republicans said Sunday that President Obama must stick with his vow to take action should Syria cross a “red line” by using chemical weapons on citizens, amid such mounting evidence, but cautioned against sending in troops.
"The president has laid down the line, and it can't be a dotted line,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., told ABC’s “This Week.” “It can't be anything other than a red line.”
U.S. officials said last week that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad probably used chemical weapons twice in March, amid a two-year civil war in which more than 70,000 people have been killed and hundreds of thousands more displaced.
“For America to sit on the sidelines and do nothing is a huge mistake," Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss told CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
Arizona Sen. John McCain has been among congressional Republicans most critical of the president’s stance on Syria.
He argued on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the red line strategy has given Assad a “green light” to do almost everything up to that point -- including the use of missiles, helicopter attacks and other civilian strikes that have resulted in “atrocities on a scale that we have not seen in a long, long time.”
However, he joined a bipartisan call this weekend against sending U.S. troops into Syria.
"The worst thing we could do is put boots on the ground," McCain said.
He and fellow Hill lawmakers fear the chemical weapons could be more dangerous in the hands of U.S. enemies or those who might overthrow Assad. And he joined in calls for the United States to be part of an international force to safeguard the weapons.
“The day after Assad [leaves] is the day that these chemical weapons could be at risk,” Chicago Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky told ABC. “We could be in bigger, even bigger trouble.”
Maryland Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin urged Sunday afternoon on Fox against sending troops, saying that’s exactly what the Assad regime wants.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, also said the U.S. could safeguard the weapons without a ground force. But he said the weapons must be protected from getting into the hands of enemies.
"The next bomb that goes off in America may not have nails and glass," he told CBS, referring to the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing in which three people were killed and more than 260 others were injured.
Obama has also said Assad transferring the stockpile of weapons to terrorists would also cross the line.
The assessment that Syria used chemical weapons last month followed similar conclusions from Britain, France, Israel and Qatar -- key allies eager for a more aggressive response to the Syrian conflict.
The United States is already providing humanitarian aid and non-lethal support to Syrian opposition forces.
Obama has insisted that any use of such weapons would change his thinking about his country’s role in Syria but said he didn't have enough information to order aggressive action.
"For the Syrian government to utilize chemical weapons on its people crosses a line that will change my calculus and how the United States approaches these issues," Obama said Friday.
Both sides of the civil war accuse each other of using the chemical weapons.
The deadliest such alleged attack was in the Khan al-Assal village in the Aleppo province in March. The Syrian government called for the United Nations to investigate alleged chemical weapons use by rebels in the attack that killed 31 people.
Syria, however, has not allowed a team of experts into the country because it wants the investigation limited to the single Khan al-Assal incident, while U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged "immediate and unfettered access" for an expanded investigation.

For brevity's sake let's just say we support state terrorism and we would be right!
We should add that Israel became a state as a result of actions by jewish terrorist organizations.
Yes, Palestine was the name of the geographical region filled with people who called themselves P A L E S T I N I A N S. Then in 1948, the powers that be cut that land into pieces and handed the jewish people of europe a new homeland and in doing so off the people living in that region called PALESTINE. Then the jewish/Israeli imperialists weren't happy with that land. They took more land in the 1967 war and retained it in 1973 AND CONTINUE TO ILLEGALLY OCCUPY THE WEST BANK AND GAZA!!
Palestine was a name for that area that began usage under Roman rule and is derived from the Philistines who once inhabited that area. Modern day Palestinians have no connection with Philistines. And there was never an independent Palestinian country but there were Hebrews in that area so who has the historical precedent?

Obama's War on Journalism
Obama Administration support for the Muslim Brotherhood is out of control.
Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah met with key members of President Obama's national security team, in the White House.The problem? Abdullah Bin Bayyah is a jihadist, affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
In 2004, his organization, the International Union of Muslim Scholars, issued a fatwa – a Muslim religious directive – declaring that it was the duty of Muslims to kill American soldiers in Iraq.
His organization supports suicide bombing of Israeli civilians, and its president has praised the Holocaust. And now he's come to the White House to ask the Obama Administration to arm jihadists in Syria.
Enough is enough. No support for jihad. No support for the Muslim Brotherhood!!!!
I'll tell you like I told Trick, in the case of the Muslim Brotherhood, go do the research and see how deep that rabbit hole goes. And in the case of Israel, they are by no means innocent here. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Notice how the various western states or their poxy (Israel) are taking out secular govt's that leave vacuums to be filed by radical religionists? Think man Think!
So does this mean were illegally occupying the the U.S. from native Americans?
No. From the cavemen.
