Israel isn't a wonderful thing

I disagree with John Mearsheimer because Israel isn't a wonderful thing. The more I listen to him, the more I disagree.

Israeli soldiers often intentionally murder and maim children

There are many myths about how Israel came about. Fact is, discrimination against people because of their religion is wrong.

For over 35 years, Israel has imposed a harsh, brutal, military operation violating the Geneva convention. Israel has violated international law by continuing to grab more land and moving Israeli citizens into the occupied territories.

This problem would be over if the U.S. expected Israel to abide by international law. It really is as simple as that.

The media is not reporting the truth about what is really going on. We are being manipulated by the phase "destruction of Israel" which masks the ugly reality: Israel denies rights to non-Jews, rights that we demand for ourselves. This is something mainstream media never makes clear to the public. When people talk about the destruction of Israel - if all the Jews and non-Jews in Israel lived totally equally, that would be, by definition, the destruction of Israel. Chomsky Video Clip

Discrimination isn't a wonderful thing. Denial of human rights isn't a wonderful thing.
