Hamass firing rockets into Israel doesn't threaten peace.
The thousands of rockets Hizboola has just north of Israel doesn't threaten peace.
The PLO arab terrorist organization, currently doing business under the banner of the PA, getting the UN to unilaterally effectively declare them the state where Israel currently exists (& where I currently live) doesn't threaten peace.
Israel building houses for civilians in Israel threatens peace.
There's more than one way to skin a cat and Israel has chosen to build instead of bomb. The Palestinians should be grateful.
Well, y'know, building houses is a terrible thing. Pshh, Jews don't deserve places to live, why don't they all live on the streets...which the Hamas definitely won't bombard with rockets? And hey, Israel doesn't own that land...it wasn't legally acquired from the Turks, et al.
Seriously, though, it's somewhat mind-numbing that Israel building houses (not military bases, not missile silos, etc) on land that is rightfully Israel's is an "obstacle to peacemaking." The UN needs to shut the f**k up and think about what they'd say if this were any other country in the world building houses.
(Ah yes, and a belated Merry Christmas to everyone here who celebrates it, and a Happy (holiday of choice) to those who don't.)
God has your back Israel and so do most Americans. You do what you want to do - it's YOUR land. May the Lord continue to bless and keep you. Amen.
As for these degenerate Muslims... back off. You have no idea what sort of pain and trouble awaits you if you persist with attacking Israel. Get your hearts right with the true and living God and avoid His terrible judgement. Otherwise, you're doomed.

None of the middle east is Muslim land. Almost all of it belongs to Christians and Jews. The only land that Muslims own is the city of Medina. Everything else that they now control was conquered by force, and is hence unjustly theirs. The land should rightly belong to the previous owners of the land; the ones who did not conquer it by force, but who peacefully colonized it.
Muslims are brutal warmongering world-domineering animals who deserve to be utterly defeated so that there is no more Islam left in the world.
That is my sincere conviction.
The earth belongs to GOD and HE gave a portion of it to Israel. Israel is the ONLY nation and people to whom God gave land. The rest of it has been conquered and re-conquered over the centuries.
The God-given boundaries of Israel are much larger than present-day Israel. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/61/Greater_Israel_map.jpg
However, the Children of Israel never quite conquered all the promised land given nor did they live fully by the laws, promises, spiritual and material given to them by God...somehow, they always got bogged down in sin, rebellion, discouragement, distraction and fear...just like God's born-again children do today.
I prefer to stick to a non-religious explanation. I don't think it helps to base any righteous claim to the land on being a matter of faith, since faith is not a strong argument. For instance, who will you accept: A man who tells you that flamingos exist and that you have to believe in them without any evidence of their existence... OR a man who brings you a flamingo that you can see, touch, and hear. Clearly, you're going to choose the latter, because man's faculty of reason is superior to faith.
Tell an atheist that Israel belongs to the Jewish people "because God said so", and you'll do nothing to persuade them. The 'faith' based explanation is only effective with people who are already very pious and already in favor of the religious texts that form the Jewish claim to the region.
The same thing goes for the Individual Rights, which people often claim "come from God". Again, the faith based argument is weak when up against the reason based argument which says that Individual Rights are necessitated by Man's nature as a rational being (and then goes on to explain precisely why that's the case). Here, the latter (reason based) argument is effective with everyone, whereas the former (faith based) argument is effective only with people who are already very pious.
I just thought I'd put that out there. Maybe it'll make you try using reason based arguments over faith based arguments next time. That is, of course, if you want to persuade the largest number of people, or just continue preaching to the choir.
Hillary caught the Benghazi flu and accordingly won't be available to answer any questions that could possibly embarrass her or her obamessiah.
There are a number of possibilities:
1. She had a stroke following or preceding her 'concussion,'
2. Plastic surgery in preparation for next campaign for POTUS
- stroke or other complications following plastic surgery
- plastic surgery unsuccessful
3. Poisoning or biological attack by foreign or domestic group.
4. Political blackmail - she was/is to be fed to the wolves by Obama
5. Rehab - Drying out somewhere due to alcoholism/drugs
7. She is being treated for cancer and had nausea due to treatment
NOTE - this area was given to Israel in agreement with the so-called 'Palestinians' in several prior Israeli-Palestinian 'peace' agreements.
Now the 'Palestinians' (and the Obama administration and UN) deny Israel their rightful use of this land.
In fact, the 'Palestinians' don't want Israel to have any land as their charter and in their public statements reveal - they don't want Jews or Israel to exist.
These are ruthless, dishonest people and I include the Obama administration. However, the more I read about the Bushes and Clintons, there doesn't seem to be much difference. Reagan may have been the last truly American President.
He who hesitates is lost. This phrase is so apt for the Palestinian leadership. Their mantra for the past 5 years has been that they will not negotiate with Israel till the building stops. They forgot about the 10 month moratorium by Nethanyahu. No new building went on and no new talks took place. To this day Abbas talks the same nonsense.
Each and every muslim country in the Middle East attacks it's neighbors, kills it's people and commits all kinds of atrocities. That's okay. Israel builds a few houses and it's "an obstacle to peacemaking".
I am waiting for the UN to step in at any time now to declare the houses a war zone and send in the blue helmets. I wonder what their opinion is of "Habitats for Humanity". Do they consider them precursers to genocide?
Great comment... this is a real concern. America better stand up to the accused U.N.... but with Obama leading from behind, I rather doubt we'll stand by our friend (Israel)... I hope we do though.
