Bushs Last Gift to Israel

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration appears set to offer Israel a powerful radar system that could greatly boost Israeli defenses against enemy ballistic missiles while tying them directly into a growing U.S. missile shield.

President George W. Bush is expected to discuss the matter during a visit to Israel starting on Wednesday to mark the 60th anniversary of the Jewish state amid mounting U.S. concern over perceived threats from Iran, people familiar with the matter said.

This is "probably the No. 2 issue" on Bush's agenda for the visit, second only to the Middle East peace process, said Rep. Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican who has spearheaded calls in Congress for tighter U.S. missile-defense ties with Israel.

Rather than defending the indefensible, he'd do far better to save innocent lives and protect the true victims of aggression. This course would appear to make far more sense - at least to right thinking people.

Israel - Born of terrorism, created by Terrorists, still terrorising civilians 60 years later.

Amen tomahawk. Israels' problem is that it wants to be western. If it was a tin pot dictatroship then we would be applauding it for its moderate stance. Unfortunately, most people have no idea of the actual issues and hit out against the only western country in that situation. This problem then gets projected onto the jews.

Anyway, isnt it better that the US is providing them with a deensive capability rather than doing nothing.

Oh dear, never mind you Nazi boys hate it that Israel can defend itself. Israel will still be here long after you and your ilk have gone.

Anti-semitism on parade.

Right in que!!

Hers a thing… Anti SEMITISM is a hatred of JEWS… I don't like the policies of ISRAEL… Israel's a COUNTRY, not a RACE.


I just love the way Israel apologists roll out the 'anti semite' card when anyone criticized Israel… it shows just how weak your case is.

Not going to call me a Nazi then? Just because you don't like Israel doesn't make you one. We remember the IRA bombings as terrorism yet ignore events like these. Well I do think this defense system is a good idea as hopefully it will stop incoming from Hezbollah and the like giving less reason for retaliation attacks which cause massive collatoral damage and civilian loss of life.

Calm down boy, you'll burst a blood vessel.

You dumb f*ck Being an Israeli is a race because Israel is a Country. Jew isn't a race though. Moron.

It's an anomaly in that it is both a race and a religion. Oil slick is right too, anyone who criticises Israel is usually labeled an anti semite (just as you are doing) despite the fact that disagreement over policies is different from dislike of a race.

No need for that. The Jewish people will all be converted before the End Days are upon us, apparently.
