Care to explain your response to me?
Hey, I'm sorry that my response seemed too general. I didn't think you'd be interested in specifics.
Israel is a country that is based on three things: Zionism, Judaism, and Terror.
Zionism is the view that the only proper land for those of Hebrew descent (what most people call Jews) is Israel. Any other place, "has proven to be anti semitic." That is, at least, the common argument for it. Of course, those who say this, completely ignore the endless and huge amounts of historical and contemporary anti semitism that Israel has for the Hebrews, compared to plenty of places, in the world, that are actually quite pleasant to live in. No wars. And some places hardly even know or recognize a Hebrew person (as opposed to any other white person), like in Asia.
Judaism is the religious culture that followed, grew, and in some communities of Hebrews, taken root. Like in all religions, there are many sects, and there are different espoused lifestyles. And like in all religions, everything is done through coercion, threat, and fear. Most of the sects, however, and even those who are just barely religious, at all, support Zionism, and are therefore either actively Zionist, live here and fight in the wars, or are passively Zionist, and donate insane sums of money towards the cause.
Terror is the emotion that rules in Israel. Unlike the USA, for example, where terror has only recently become very popular; over here it's been a foundation, constant and intrusive. Compulsory military conscription. A country forever officially in a state of "alert" (war-time). A country where the citizens don't actually have any official positive rights.
Explaining the emotion, atmosphere, and behavior of the people of Israel, is akin to explaining those of the people right now in warring countries, such as Afghanistan and Iraq. On the surface, people behave as if this was the liberal west, where life is free and good. However, when the society and people are reviewed, and inquisitive conversations take place, then a constant state of panic is revealed. A state of panic that is encouraged, by those who dominate this country.
I call Israel a US military base. It is so full of arms, military, bases, all funded by the USA. It so aimed at war, that everything else becomes irrelevant. Just looking at the funds that flow through Israel (public state budget), it is evident that the highest purpose of this "society" is to wage war.
Is it a "just war"? A war of "self-defense"? Even if it were, then it would still make no sense to force ourselves to live here. Up until recently, most Hebrews lived in the USA, where they enjoy and prosper. Hell, they are the source of all that support and funding, without which there would be no Israel. [I reckon that in America, the continent, there are more Hebrews, than in Israel.]
But it is not a just war. The history of Israel is well documented. People escaped from other countries, rightfully so, but only to force themselves on those who had been living here, Hebrews and Arabs, and do to others what they had suffered. Israel is the land of the continuous holocaust. Both towards Arabs, and towards the Hebrews.
I hope that explains my perspective and reasoning better.
