    I agree with you, I am not enthusiastic about either Bush or McCain. But maybe these House Republicans can shame the other Republicans in Congress into allowing us to take the chips where they fall and then go from there to allow a free market to build. These Republican congressman are putting together an alternative bailout plan that so far looks pretty acceptable to me.

    Thanks, Agitate, for understanding my answer was not a flame.

    I agree that Kerry in office will not fix any of these problems. Bush in office will also fail to fix these problems. Instead, Bush in office will allows the current Republican party to keep veering to the left, as the Dems become more and more socialist.

    The neocons are Wilsonian democrats pretending to be conservatives. I have learned over the past 4 years that just because someone says he or she is Republican does not mean that the person is a conservative. It just means that the person does not want the Dems in office or that the person is an evangelical Christian. (No offense to evangelicals -- my dad is a Baptist minister.)

    Ok, I'll bite.

    Here's why I will not vote for Bush.

    1. Federal government now involved with marriage counseling and distribution of tax dollars to so-called "faith based" organizations, ie, churches, mosques, synagogues, etc.

    2. Horrific deficit spending, fiscal irresponsibility.

    3. Corporate welfare. Halliburton is, I believe, just a drop in the bucket.

    4. A war in a foreign county which, apparently, is now justified by the idea that we must impose our values on a foreign people. (PS: I did support the Afghanistan action.)

    5. A belief that the American people need government big-brother protection more than they need the Bill of Rights and other constitutional guarantees. (We, the people, are not wimps.)

    6. Will Kerry be good for our country? No. But the above is a liberal agenda, not a conservative agenda. So my last reason for not voting for Bush is this: the Republican Party needs to clean up its act and reexamine its commitment to small government, and allegience to the Consitution and the principles on which our country is based.

    You are very close to being a libertarian. You differ from libertarians in that, generally speaking, libertarians believe a pregnant woman should have freedom to determine her own physical condition, and libertarians oppose foreign military adventures unless there is a direct threat from the targeted foreign nation. Libertarians generally support the "war on terror," but most believe that the war should be directed at the defined enemy of Al Queda. Most libertarians believe that there has never been any evidence that Iraq or Saddam Hussein posed a threat to the U.S., or had any link to Al-Queda.

    Many libertarians believe that the threat of terrorism can be lessened by not meddling in foreign countries' political affairs.

    Like most political parties, not all adherents agree with all the planks. Ron Paul, D-TX, is a good example of the general libertarian view of things.

    Hope this helps.

    Valin, I support Israel's right to exist. Very much so. But it should not be at the expense of U.S. national interests or its taxpayers.

    In my opinion, if the U.S. wasn't playing the role of big Momma, bailing out Israel at every turn and turning a blind eye to what really goes on over there, then Israel would be forced to reach some true accommodation with the Palestinians.

    I don't even think we should just "drop" Israel, but if we are going to keep dumping cash into that country, and sell weapeons to it indiscriminately, then we also have a responsibility to see that Israel behaves like a rational state and starts negotiating in good faith. This means Israel cannot have everything it wants, i.e., settlements need to go.

    The best favor we could do for Israel is to force that country to grow up and eventually wean itself from the American taxpayer.

    Don't you think Israel deserves a few million more (than Egypt)?

    We give Egypt $2 billion a year...and I object to this hand-out, too. But Israel doesn't get a few million more, Israel gets a few billion more...all told, about $5 billion per year when everything is lumped in together. But why does Israel "deserve" more...or anything at all?

    Incidently, do you know why we give Egypt $2 billion per year? At Camp David, we had to "buy" the "peace treaty" between those two, because Egypt would lose its hand-out from our great ally Saudi Arabia. (But at least Saudi Arabia's so-called friendship is somewhat free -- we just pay for the oil).

    So, if you really look at it, we have to pay Israel $5 billion per year, and then because of Israel we have to shell out another $2 billion to Egypt. It's ridiculous, especially when Bush's tax cut came to an average of $300 per tax payer.

    1. "There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies ­not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy." Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001

    2. "The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more".... Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time - August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000

    3. " [The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs." Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts". New Statesman, 25 June 1982.

    4. "The Palestinians" would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls." " Isreali Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

    5. "When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle." Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.

    6. "The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war." Israeli General Matityahu Peled, Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972.

    7. David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), p. 121.

    8. "We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves." Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.

    Wooly is part of a recent article by Shamir. I don't necessarily agree with all of it, but...:

    "...The Jewish state of Israel is a state of mind, a projection of the American Jewish mind. The worries and problems it articulates are American Jewish problems. For Israeli 'Jews', there is no need for segregation, war, or subjugation of natives. We eat no bagels with lox, speak no Yiddish, read no Saul Bellow or Sholom Aleichem, and avoid synagogues. We prefer Arab food and Greek music. My neighbourhood has seven pork butchers to a kosher one. Forty per cent of Tel Aviv weddings are done outside Jewish framework: young Israelis prefer to go to Cyprus to get married, just to avoid contact with Rabbis. Tel Aviv is the gay capital of the Middle East, though according to Jewish law, gays should be exterminated.

    If American Jews did not bribe Israelis on a large scale, we would just forget about the Diaspora and dissolve into the hospitable Middle East. If they continue to bankroll us, we shall oblige them with a small show of Jewishness.

    We are master-sellers of illusion, and as long as there are buyers, we shall provide the goods..."

    The massacre of September 11 has merely exposed and accelerated this trend. In the aftermath, a Gallup poll of Pakistanis found 48% believing that the Jews actually flew the planes into the World Trade Center, after warning their compatriots to stay away.

    I have searched long and hard to figure out how that rumor started, and this is what I have come up with:

    Jerusalem Post: "Thousands of Israelis missing near WTC, Pentagon" 9/12/01. Article states: "The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem has so far received the names of 4,000 Israelis believed to have been in the areas of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon at the time of the attack."

    New York Times: "Officials Say Number of Those Still Missing May Be Overstated" 9/22/01. Article states: "There were, in fact, only three Israelis who had been confirmed as dead: two on the planes and another who had been visiting the towers on business and who was identified and buried." To date, accordingly to the tally, there was 1 Israeli killed in the WTC disaster.

    These news articles, along with the famous Odigo message (reported by Ha'aretz and other news media) received by 2 Israelis 2 hours before the attack, and which has not been explained as of this date, has combined, I believe, to contribute to this rumor referred to by Sullivan. And yes, it is circulating vigorously in the Arab world.

    Is the Jewish religion "protected" by their constitution or not?

    It was my experience that people can legally worship as they choose in Israel. However, there is tremendous pressure not to discuss any other religious alternatives with people of the Jewish faith. Maybe the following article will shed some light on this for you:

    Tuesday, March 31, 1998

    No missionary activity in Holy Land

    The Associated Press

    Representatives of 50 Christian evangelical groups have agreed to make an unprecedented joint statement promising not to carry out missionary activity in Israel. As a result, MK Nissim Zvili (Labor) said yesterday he would drop his sponsorship of an anti-proselytizing bill that has drawn protests from Christians around the world.

    "This is better than a law," Zvili told The Associated Press. "This is a very big accomplishment."

    In the statement, the Christian groups say they "rejoice in the presence of the Jewish people in this country of their ancestors" and agree to avoid "activities which have as their intention to alienate them from their tradition and community."

    Missionary activity touches a particularly raw nerve in the Jewish state, home to 300,000 Holocaust survivors.

    Clarence Wagner, director of the evangelical foundation Bridges for Peace, said the statement was an important step toward understanding between Jews and Christians. But none of the groups were engaged in proselytizing anyway, adding: "We don't believe that we have been or are in any way a threat to the Jewish people. We are among the most vocal supporters of Israel worldwide."

    Christian groups opposed the proposed bill as stifling their freedom of religious expression, Wagner said. The agreement, which is to be announced formally tomorrow, was reached through the mediation of Joseph Alpher, director of the American Jewish Committee's Israel office. The accord represented "a dynamic Christian commitment to the vitality of Israel and Judaism," he said.

    Another sponsor of the anti-proselytizing bill, MK Moshe Gafni (United Torah Judaism) said yesterday that he rejected the agreement. "We have a long account with Christendom," Gafni said. "They tried to wipe out Judaism by force Ñ the pogroms, the Crusades, the Inquisition, the expulsion from Spain, and now they are pursuing us even into our own country."

    But the decision by Zvili to drop his sponsorship will deprive the bill of broad-based support. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has also said he opposed the bill, which Alpher said he hoped would now "wither on the vine." As initially proposed, the bill would have banned possession of any written material that proselytizes, which some Christians feared could be used to ban possession of the New Testament.

    Note: I would often debate various religious topics with Israeli friends, just like politics or economical issues. It is not my nature to try to convert anyone. But the official Israeli position is that there should be no "preaching" to Jews. It is their country and I see no problem with it. I just get annoyed when we in the U.S. criticize countries other than Israel for the same behavior, yet ignore that Israel has the same policy in place.

    The BC/BCE thing is really about being politically correct, which I think has gotten out of hand. If we refer to a Muslim event, should we refer to Muslim calendar notations? If we refer to a Chinese event, should we refer to the Chinese calendar notations?

    I vigorously support freedom of regligion and strong separation of church and state, but "BC" is the traditional American way of dating events when we talk about history in our country. Where does it stop, if we try to accommodate every ethnic group which makes up our country?

    Can you even fathom what would happen if a teacher in a Christian school took a class outside and burned the Talmud.

    In fairness, SickOfItAll, I believe that if a Jewish schoolteacher in the U.S. burned a New Testament or Koran in front of students, American Jews would the the first to condemn it and they would do so forcefully. IMHO, it is no coincidence that the complaining Israeli parent in this story was an American Jew who immigrated to Israel.

    For me, the point of this story is that Israel does not really share the values of the U.S., as most Americans believe. I do not necessarily criticize Israel for this, because Israel is in a war enviornment. However, I do think that most Americans -- including most Jewish Americans -- have a very inaccurate idea of what what actually goes on over there.

    Enraged mob attacks Jews for Jesus meeting By Aliza Arbeli, Ha'aretz Correspondent

    A mob of several hundred ultra-Orthodox Jews besieged an old Arab structure in Be'er Sheva yesterday after a rumor spread in the city's synagogues that missionaries were baptizing Jewish children.

    The Haredim stopped their prayers to go to the house, where they found about 40 people, including women and children, who are members of the messianic movement Jews for Jesus. The movement has met in the same building for 17 years.

    Police Chief Superintendent Kobi Cohen, who headed the police force that arrived at the scene, said police rescued the trapped worshipers and escorted them past the singing and dancing demonstrators.

    A messianic Jew who was in the area described the experience as terrifying. "A mob of men in black surrounded us and were shouting and throwing stones and they tried to jump over the fence. We were especially scared for the children. We're not missionaries. We are Jews just like those who want to kick us out. We all believe in the same god, but we also believe in love and tolerance," he said.

    A few days ago in Kiryat Malachi, several dozen youths from a Chabad high school attacked an American couple whom they suspected were missionaries. The boys hurled stones at the house of the new immigrants, who moved to the city three months ago. The couple denied engaging in any missionary activity and said they belonged to a humanitarian organization based in Switzerland and came to Kiryat Malachi to work with Ethiopian immigrants.

    Two weeks ago, a mob of ultra-Orthodox men attacked and ransacked an apartment rented by three Swiss Christian women they accused of conducting missionary activity in Jerusalem's ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea She'arim. The women denied the accusations.

    I do not know how to post a news article or link, so I am just pasting and copying a link where Issa answers Schussel. The alleged quote is in this article.

    So I guess Germany and Japan and Mexico and Vietnam et al should continuously hold a grudge against us?

    I am not familiar with any instances when we deliberately bombed these countries' ships when we were not at war with them and they were not at war with us. But, this could be my own lack of knowledge. If you don't mind, please fill me in. Thanks.

    A very rare thing for Jews to do something like this.

    I support Israel's right to exist, and I agree that violence is no more present in the Jewish faith than any other faith.

    But, are you familiar with the Lavon affair -- when the Israelis plotted to bomb the US Embassy in Egypt in order to create a diplomatic rift between the U.S. and Egypt? Are you familiar with the Israelis planting a bomb in an Iraqi synagogue, making it look like it was Iraqis who did it, so that Iraqi Jews would immigrate to Israel? If you doubt this, read Golda Meir's autobiography. She talks about it.

    A long forgotten and forgiven event which the Congress has just refused to look into - again.

    What right does Congress have to "forgive" a foreign country for deliberating bombing and killing our servicemen?

    But the problem here is that Israel sells our national secrets to third parties (i.e., Russia, China). If this isn't enough, at $3-5 billion in foreign aid per year, US taxpayers foot the bill for this spying.

    I say that Congress needs to put US interests first -- for a change. If the US would pursue its legitimate interests in the Middle East, my guess is that the chances for real peace in the Middle East would increase immeasureably.
