I asked if NY Jews have any connection to Israel, because you seemed to be blinded by democrat politics and anti-israel and anti-arab rhetoric, and anti-war rehetoric without knowing the truth. This blindness disturbs me. Before Saddam Hussein was overtaken by the USA and other countries, he perpetrated terrible atrocities that people discount or did not care to know. Do New York Jews even know what is really going on in the middle east?
1. He paid the terrorist suicide bombers families as a reward for committing terrorist activities on Israel.
2. He pointed missiles (SCUD) toward Israel and sent bombs to terrorize non-military targets.
3. He threatened an imminent invasion of Israel to kill the Jews of Israel.
4. He threatened to (within the Scud missiles) to send biological warfare in the heads of the missiles to poison the Jews and kill them all.
I was living in San Diego / La Jolla when the Israeli Gymnastic team visited the Jewish Community Center in the early 89-90's. I decided right then to devote myself to helping the Israeli Olympic Athletes, and that I would travel to Israel for my first time and volunteer at the Olympic training facility aka wingate institute.
I became close with Israeli olympic athletes in track and field, gymnastics, swimming, wrestling, weight lifting, and decided to extend my original trip for several extra months.
I could not sit still thinking about the fear that Israeli citizens were living in, fearing for their life. A life of carrying around gas masks to protect themselves from chemical and other biological weapons of mass destruction. Also a fear of invasion by Saddam Hussein's army. An Army that already invaded Kuwait, and stole their oil wells and all other wealth of the country. The plan to invade israel was all about annihilation of the Jewish people.
All of you stupid New Yorkers that bought into the politics of the democratic party, and that Bush was wrong to invade Iraq, are all ignorant of the fear and danger that Hussein was causing on Israel. You idiots continue to blindly follow the democratic party, even after seeing how poorly Obama treats Israel, who is only trying to protect themselves.
You stupid New Yorkers also don't care that even after Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians, that they continue to shoot missiles every day into Israel from Gaza. they continue to terrorize non-military targets.
In 1994, I returned to Israel with the intention of making aliyah. I lived in Israel for 7 more years, marrying and starting a family there. It was very hard for me to every day witness another terrorist attack. Increased bus bombings, and many other disruptions.
How can you New Yorkers think that it was not important to remove Hussein from office, and send troops into Iraq? How can you also think it is not important to keep troops in the middle east?
It is not just Jews that the Muslims are targeting for death, but Christians, Catholics and all other religions that are not Muslim. While their first priority is to wipe out Israel, they would then be free to come after you. Why don't you take the Iran leaders words seriously, when he tells you what he plans on doing to Israel?
Show some support in Israel, and wake up from your robotic followings of the democratic party, no matter how badly they treat Israel.
I feel a bit better releasing this.
I was inspired to write this by Bud Greenspan's documentary on the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre, that I watched on my local public TV station.
