    this is the philosophy of life , the stronger is supported.

  2. Matthew David Landberg says:

    I certainly support Israel because my faith in the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob but most importantly because it’s the democratic thing to do.

  3. Peter Ashcroft says:

    We have two current conflicts in Israel, Gaza, and The West Bank (Palestine). The main warring conflict is between Israel and Hamas, in and around The Gaza Strip. Both parties must cease fire immediately, as this results in killings. A strong United Nations Mandate is needed to prevent further fighting.
    The other conflict is the building of more and more Israeli enclaves within Palestine (The West Bank), and the settlers continue to maintain allegiance with Jerusalem, and not Ramallah. This should be stopped, and the developed land should be returned to the Palestinian People, who have rights to live there, and cultivate the land for the good of all.
    The Jewish people suffered in the Holocaust, but both they, and the Palestinian People now have their own faults which must be cured peacefully forthwith. Peaceful neighbours should replace warring factions. There is a common God, whatever his title.

  4. Marc Gustnak says:

    For Mr stephen Harper:
    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 The Jewish Paradox.

  5. Luciano Tavares says:

    Did I read correctely ? Solidarity with Israel.
    I have nothing against the zionist people, neither Palestinians, but that is ridiculous.
    Hundreds of Palestinians are dying under Israel fire because they cannot properly protect themselves.
    Hamas has beeing using a coward strategy of putting itself behing ordinary people and using them as shield.
    The point is that it does not justify the Israel action. That is my opinion!

  6. John Soderman says:

    I very much agree we should stand with Isreal

  7. John Soderman says:

    I strongly agree
