Israel's Enemies Should be Our Enemies

AZRay-Can't recall seeing anything from you before; but I cannot say I totally disagree with your perceptions of the Israeli "Situation". I well remember the "Israeli State" Dilemma and all the International commotion as well as my immediate Family's mixed emotions.. I cannot recall any personal contacts with persons of Jewish Faith while growing up so I think it fair to say I held no prejudice(s) when entering Military Svc in '53. Again, my personal contact with the Jewish World in the Military was quite limited and I do not recall any extraordinary problems. Quite late in my Career I was required to attend several "Senior/Executive" type levels of mostly Avionics curriculum and I must say that I never met a group of more aloof, self-centered People than the Israeli senior NCOs/Officers than those who were attending the same type studies, but not mingled with the American "scum". Truly, it was a disheartening experience and I have never forgotten! NEVER WILL!
Oracle 1 --An EXCELLENT review of Mr Ob! The first time I heard the fellow speak-and actually one of the times I paid ANY attention-I remembered my Fathers' favorite line regarding Politicians in General_ "if you can't DAZZLE 'EM WITH BRILLIANCE', BAFFLE 'EM WITH BULLSHIITE"!! Obama certainly did not originate that line, He merely PERSONIFIES it!
To the writer of this column--Quite interesting and probably well-researched. To the World in General--ABSURD! The institution of "slavery" should never have been tolerated! On a personal level, my Grand Mother once owned an old "Diary" of sorts that had belonged to one of her forebears who lived in Bath County (I'm pretty sure that's the location)Virginia during the Time of Slavery and had in fact "Owned" more than a few of Blacks; However, according to her "records" when Emancipation dictated Freedom for all, many of the affected Families refused to leave, or if they did vacate premises, more than a few returned to their "Homes" and STAYED as employees for generations. (I can state with certainty that to this day the Family Name is seen on the back of Jerseys of many College Athletes in VA/NC. Reparations--Oh I remember now, No Irish need apply!?
dann5-"Methinks thou doth protest too much"--Maybe so--Maybe no! I THINK the entire World might just be a TAD better off if we ALL made an honest effort to put both "slavery" and "The Holocaust" behind us as courses of Action never to be repeated by ANYONE, ANYTIME!

about ALL I gotta say to this gibberish is "Holy Mergatroid--Who'd have thought that?" One last pointless observation--As I have stated many times here on TH "I am an 'Old White Geezer' which-in all probability-puts me in a quite precarious position in today's World" so when my Primary Physician recently told me he suspects I may be mortally afflicted with one of the primary executioners of OWGs, I think my response was a SHRUG of the shoulders! Hell of a way to "end the battle" tho!??

John in OK-WELL STATED!!I spent 60 of the most miserable days of my Life as a Military "advisor" in the Country of CHAD! I have always wished they (my bosses) had sent one of my compatriots who was a somewhat "Militant" Black fellow there with me! I do believe he might have come to a new way of seeing the USA! (In full disclosure, I also spent a longer time in the very Irish County-Cork- that sent my Great-Grandfolks to the US! Sure glad I'm Irish in "name only". ) Also, Chad had a lovely Elephant population-seriously..No so Ireland! (bad joke)

Mag14-No need to "call black people the n-word"---their equally black brethren make a career of that action!
jokamura-"Is it the 'morally' right thing to do, to stop people from seeking to live a better life?" For starters, let us play a round of "Just Suppose", OK? Just Suppose a t least a few, and I suspect many more than that, are Gang Members (MS-13 has been noted as a probability) .You may find them acceptable neighbors-I refuse to do that! ENFORCE THE DAMNED LAWS!! that'll solve a HUGE part of the "Immigrant problems"! And U say?
Lynne110-You say-in part-"Governor Perry needs to deploy his own Texas National guard to the border". I totally agree with you, but there are more than a few draw-backs to such a plan! (Were you around/near a place called "Kent state" long ago? Didn't work out too well as I recall-I have a better idea!?? Let's (the US GUBMINT) enforce ALL existing Law relating to Immigration into the US TO THE LETTER--No exceptions/exemptions and all that "good stuff". Let them learn all about the "Paper-work, waiting, more paperwork, more waiting etc etc.. That Procedure, aggravating tho it is, worked for my Wife of 44 years. It WILL work for todays potential Citizens--U reckon?
