I'm not "blaming" Israel. I'm saying they hate Israel and all her friends. I've no doubt they'd come up with other reasons, but THAT is #1. (IMO)
You are naive. The Muslims have hated infidels for 1,500 years. Israel was not in existence for most of that time.
The Muslims also hated Byzantium and the Eastern Roman Empire. They took care of that many years ago.
The Muslims also hate Rome, and Muhammed, who predicted the fall of Byzantium, also predicted the fall of Rome to Islam.
The Muslims also hate America. Even if Israel had never existed, they would hate America, because we are the infidel enemy, the crusaders, and we put them to shame merely by existing.
I don't think Ivan was saying you were blaming Israel, I think he meant the Muslims were blaming Israel. I guess I shouldn't speak for him, but I read his post to you that way.
