What a stupid, stupid thread!

Supporting Israel is not a religous issue.

In fact, the Torah states that the Jews are supposed to remain in exile until God comes back to earth.

I so want to support you for that statement, but my religion doesn't allow it.

Why do so many people who express nothing but hatred for Israel so often claim it is others who see things in black and white?

I guess I've missed where anyone has "expressed nothing but hatred for Israel."

Can you please point out specific instances of someone saying (or even intimating) that?

Or are you saying that if someone isn't 100%, without exception or criticism, for Israel..... they must "hate" them?

Which leads to my next observation (which echo's Salty's)............... why do so many people see things in black or white only?
