In Case You Didn't Know...

America is overwhelmingly pro-Israel. And not just in a "We support its right to exist" sense, either, according to a recent Gallup poll. Almost half of us don't think the Arab world will ever accept any sort of peaceful co-existence with Israel, and our opinions of the Palestinians are near an all-time low.

This should come as a surprise to no one but those deluded enough to believe that Israel has no friends. Most of us here understand that Israel's war against terrorism is synonymous with our own, and that we have a common set of values and a common commitment to democracy and equality among our citizens.

And we realize that the Islamic world is obviously dead-set against those values. Non-Muslims unfortunate enough to live there are considered second-class citizens, and no one is able to voice his opposition to the government without putting their own lives at risk. Women are treated like dirt and children are encouraged to martyr themselves and take the lives of lots of innocent people in the process. This flies in the face of everything we stand for.

Most of us are disgusted with the Palestinians and their opposition to peace. We sense the injustice present in the current situation, where Jews are spilling each other's bloood in the name of peace with people who've just chosen to be led by a group who wants Israel wiped off the map. We want nothing to do with the Palestinians until they give up their delusions of Israel being part of a greater Islamic waqf... and we can only hope that the rest of the world soon comes to the same conclusions.
