    I think he was being sarcastic. That quote is used quite a bit by liberals who are against the Patriot Act and Homeland Security Act.

    As was I... I didn't mean that he was the terrorist.

    I am actually very conservative.

    I am absolutely against the Patriot act and Homeland insecurity.

    All this is, is a freedom takeaway.

    And Ben's quote never rang more true.

    I truly believe if Amerika (actually Israel's) wasn't ramming our views and troops in every possible country, we wouldn't have many enemies.

    We (Israel) threaten other countries with nuclear bombs, when they have no such evidence of them. They complied with searches.

    Did Israel ever bother to have their weapons searched????

    NO...

    Something to think about.

    Liberals and traditional conservatives agree about those things. I could see taking extreme steps in the days following 9/11, but certainly by now we should have been able to put enough systems in place to protect us without asking us to ignore our constitutional rights. But, as I've said before, I don't agree with your take on Israel. I think our strategy there is roughly the same as our strategy with South Korea and Pakistan. We need to be pro-Israel, but also be pressuring them much harder to make peace in the region. But, remember, our military industrial complex really wants war because it's the job of CEOs of those companies to represent the shareholder interest, and the shareholder interest is for the US to build and use its weapons.

    Zionists control at the very least 95% of the world... this isn't a very good sign.

    These would be the same people whose goal is for 80% of the world to be deleted.

    If you agree with them, that is your right.

    I'm not with them though...
