Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Support for Israel is fine, robomatic. I support Israel and utterly condemn people who call for its destruction. What is not fine is support, usually unconditional, for anything the Israeli regime chooses to do. Yes there are many unpleasant factions among Arab and non-Arab Islamic nations in the Middle East and none of them are democracies in any sense we'd recognise. But the conflicts of that region, and their tentacles spreading across the globe, are squarely the upshot of the depredations of Israeli regimes and their ill-treatment of their neighbours, the Palestinians in particular, which the West enhances via their support for Israeli regime outrages and the refusal to engage with the victims of those regimes. The blame for flying planes into buildings falls squarely on the shoulders of the men who fly those planes. But without the propping up of successive Israeli regimes, and given fair treatment of the Palestinians, there would be no Hezbollah, no Hamas, no Al Qaeda, no Isis, no 9-11. Let's be honest.
