Israel is a state on the eastern seaboard of the Mediterranean. It is smaller in size than New Jersey. Israel was created by the Zionist movement who came from Western Europe in the first half of the 20th century, in 1948. Prior to 1948 the same land was called Palestine.

Today's Israel is made up of a Jewish majority and an Arab minority. The Arab minority is made up of Palestinians who stayed in their towns and cities after 1948, despite numerous massacres and systematic attacks aimed at killing them or forcing them to flee. Despite being made up of 20% Arabs (Both Christian and Muslim), Israel defines itself as a Jewish state.

Along the years the state of Israel along with its educational and governmental institutions have put in place a system of discriminatory, racist, and hateful tactics aimed at breaking down the Arabs who stayed behind, in hopes that one day Israel will be made up of 100% Jewish blood.

Israel gets most of its financial and military support from the United States. It has succeeded in keeping this ally at bay by employing a well oiled PR machine. In a nutshell Israel has complete control over what the American citizen watches on TV and in various other electronic media outlets. By carefully manipulating viewers, Israel can guarantee that the American public will continue to support its own government's aid and support to Israel. Networks who work hand in hand with the Israeli government and the Israeli lobby include, CNN, MSNBC, and FOX news, CBS, ABC and NBC. Another tactic often used by the pro-Israel lobby is discrediting anyone who speaks unfavorably (or the truth) about Israel by labeling him/her an Anti-Semite, also known as “the Anti-Semite card”.

Israel will eventually lead to the destruction of the United States and the erosion of its economy. This partnership will one day cost us more than a mere $6 billion a year. Just like being a friend with someone whose reputation and actions can destroy one's life, so can this relationship of dominance Israel has had over the U.S. for the last few decades.

Despite all this, however, Israel has managed to inadvertently create a prison for itself. The people of Israel now live in a prison of their own creation, surrounded by a 24ft wall (that is supposed to protect Israelis from suicide bombings by Palestinians in the Occupied Territories) to the east, the sea to the west, a desert to the south. Israel has failed at making friends and has succeeded in creating enemies. Violence begets violence and suffering begets suffering. Israelis walk their own streets in fear. “Suspicious Packages” are a daily occurrence where people’s daily life is disrupted by the fear that someone has planted a bomb in a shopping mall, a bank, a restaurant, on the train or on the bus. The Israeli economy isn’t something to be proud of as most of it is sustained by the occasional financial boost from the US. Israelis live in fear and paranoia 24/7 in a large scale self made prison that is about 200 miles long and about 30 miles across.

Hey Israel, enjoy your self made prison. You earned it.

The State of the Jewish people. Country in the Middle East surrounded by countries that hate them. Israel tries to make peace with its' neighbours, who just attack Israel instead of making an effort to make peace as well. Israel does not depend on America. Israel has no interest in killing Palestinians or Arab. When Israel drops a bomb on a neighbouring country, it is to blow up a building holding weapon's so Israel doesn't get attacked more. Israeli planes drop flyers telling people to go into shelter before dropping bombs. Israel is a country that is hated by most media. Propaganda lies are made to get everyone to think Israel kills Palestinian children and adults for no reason, although Palestinians kill their own citizens more than the Israelis do.
A ton of missiles were fired at Israel today.

A small Jewish state in the middle east that drives anti-semites insane... especially middle class honky commies and fascists in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand who hide behind the so-called "Palestinians" ( actually Egyptian and Jordanian squatters and Arab gypsy outcasts)to camouflage their rabid but impotent anti-Jewish rage. The so-called "Palestinians" are also a cause celebre among Arab grievance pimps worldwide despite the fact that Arab cuntries treat the so-called "Palestinians" far worse than the Israelis could ever imagine doing.
Israel is a nice country that is located in a very bad neighborhood. Sometimes they have to take matters into their own hands and break some heads in order to survive. The rest of the world hates that fact because Jews aren't supposed to fight back.
