Spinoza, I am truly sick of being called anti-semitic because I don't think Israel was founded legitimately, so you can stuff your finger-wagging attitude.

That said, these Palestinian students (if they were all students) behaved abominably and accomplished nothing but further hostility to their very real concerns. The entire history of the modern state of Israel is one of systematic oppression and outright theft of other people's land; whether Palestine was a recognized nation or not is a transparently disingenuous objection to these actions by Israel.

I am not condoning suicide bombings (first invented by zionist terrorists) or random rocket attacks by any means, in case you are making yet more assumptions about those of us who question the behavior of Israel.

I've always thought the best solution to this situation is to simply stop any and all aid to Israel (something like a third of the entire foreign aid budget of the US the last time I looked) and let them start getting along with their neighbors or face the consequences.

Why is the US expected to continue to send billions every year to this country, when *we* and our allies were the ones who put a stop to the Holocaust in the first place? There was real anti-semitism during and after the war right here, but we didn't engage in systematic extermination, for christ's sake!

I long for the day when we are out of the Middle Eastern cesspool for good, after having finally gotten rid of our need for their oil and letting all of them go back to building their own societies on their own terms - or destroying themselves, whichever they choose.
