    Why do atheist wack-jobs have to display their disturbed psychological issues about Christians in a political forum.:upeyes:
     
  2. Because we all know what I said was true.

    I have had people say this to my face my friend. Their entire support of Israel is based on their religion rather than reason.

    It's also what the bible states about the prerequisites for the return of Jesus.

    You need a bigger circle of friends then.

    I'm an atheist and I support Israel.

    You need to get out more.
     
  4. Never said I didn't support Israel. Israel is an independent state that has bravely fought several times against large Arab armies, and won!

    It's their right as a nation to ensure their survival..

    Not ours.

    And your generalizations are doo-doo. I know Christians that don't like Israel because the
    Jews don't accept Christ as savior"

    Your broad brush and the conclusions you try to draw with it are full of holes.
     
  6. So you are saying that there is no support for Israel in the US because of religious implications?

    Why do people want to make Israel a state - to give us a reason to invade the area.

    Since Israel is an independent country – any aggression by say Iran might get a U.S response.

    Make Israel a U.S state and Iran or anyone else nukes it, invades, fires rockets into it or whatever it then becomes a declarable (i.e. war) event.

    Just refuting your absurd claim,

    "Because we all know what I said was true.

    I have had people say this to my face my friend. Their entire support of Israel is based on their religion rather than reason."

    that religion is the reason behind the majority of support for Israel.

    I have no doubt there is some, but just the fact that you, yourself, have not acknowledged anyone who has other reasons and cite the people you know as examples of the whole, proves you sample pool is way too small.

    So... the U.S. spends billions pulling israeli bacon out of the arab frying pan for no reason other than duty, honor, etc., etc., etc.? Or... the U.S. spends billions pulling israeli bacon out of the arab frying pan because more Jews live in NYC than in the land of israel... and those Jews in NYC and elsewhere exercise political influence to get the fed. govt. to prop up the israeli govt.?

    You do realize that the majority of "aid" actually goes towards them buying military equipment from U.S. defense contractors who employ Americans with pretty good wages and benefits? You do realize that they reciprocate with behind-the-scenes intel collected on other nations?
