That is an interesting view point..."jew-hater"..I hear that...and that only means that one can NOT have other viewpoints or one calls them names and thus instead of dealing with what is said, throws it into another realm. Does that mean one can not be critical of Israel??? He's not a Republican?? Maybe not a BUSH Republican....there are many types..and there are some who dislike what Bush has done. I don't think we need to abandon Israel...but tighten the purse strings and do other things?? Why not..we do that with every other country we send aid to...and the US sends MUCHO money to them.
Pats726, I also don't subscribe to the thought that Andy Martin is a "Jew hater".
He is, however, shockingly ignorant (or disingenuous) in his argument.
Last time I checked, Israel by UN agreement left South Lebanon in 2000. The agreement stipulated that Hizbollah would disarm and leave that area. Who's playing by the rules there?
The President of Iran has, over the past 8 months, been publicly blaring that he will wipe Israel off the map. C'mon, Pats - - you've seen those quotes. They're almost cartoonish in their brutishness. So when Iran's proven military proxy conducts military raids against Israel, points 12,000 (non-accurate, target-indiscriminant) missiles against its cities, Andy Martins is right to say that ISRAEL is the terrorist here?
Are you kidding me?

I would comment that Hizbullah and Hamas are developing their own missle technology. The terrorist are hand puppets of the Iranian goverment.
IT is no accident that these attacks and kidnappings happened the same week the UN was going to take up the refulsal of Iran to discuss the rejection of the EU proposals on stoping their n bomb development.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
Looks like diplomacy is going to end this pretty soon...this is from Reuters:
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Diplomatic efforts to end Israeli-Hezbollah fighting gained traction Monday, with Israeli officials saying they would agree to halt fighting if their two captured soldiers were returned and Islamic guerrillas withdrew from the border.
Publicly, the officials continued to insist their goal was to dismantle Hezbollah. But senior aides to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he told his Italian counterpart, Romano Prodi, that
Israel would accept cease-fire terms of Hezbollah releasing the Israeli soldiers and withdrawing from the border.
Olmert said the fighting in Lebanon would end when the two soldiers captured by Hezbollah guerrillas are freed, rocket attacks on Israel have stopped, and the Lebanese army is deployed along the border.
Delivering an impassioned speech to parliament after six-days of fighting with guerrillas in Lebanon, Olmert said Israel would have no mercy on militants who attack its cities with rockets.
"We are not looking for war or direct conflict, but if necessary, we will not be frightened by it," he said.
On Sunday, Lebanese officials said Israel had sent the terms of a possible cease-fire through Italian mediators. The terms were the release of the two captured soldiers, and a Hezbollah pullback to roughly 20 miles from the Israeli-Lebanese border.
Hezbollah-patron Iran, meanwhile, said a cease-fire was feasible and U.N. Secretary-General
Kofi Annan's special political adviser emerged from talks with Lebanon's prime minister to say he would present Israel with "concrete ideas" to end the fighting.
"We have made some promising first efforts on the way forward," Vijay Nambiar told reporters, while warning that "much diplomatic work needs to be done" before the conflict ends.
Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki — in Damascus,Syria, for talks with Vice President Farouk al-Sharaa — said a cease-fire and prisoner exchange would be acceptable and fair.
