Are all radio talk show hosts Zionist shills?

    Israel just recently sent commandos onto an aid ship and they shot a bunch of people on it. It seems like every time I turned on the AM radio station today it was a different host talking about how Israel is being framed and anyone who says otherwise is an antisemite. Now I might belive they were framed if they weren't so eager to throw down the antisemite card. That just tosses all credibility out the window. What do you think?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    No, I would guess that most of these hosts are Christians.

    By and large I support Israel as a sovereign nation. I draw the line at apartheid and violations of basic human rights. I disagree when it happens in any nation that is expected to uphold certain standards of human decency. It's difficult, because I don't have a horse in this race. I have no superstitious, sentimental attachment to the land of Israel, but that's largely because I don't believe in some sort of mysterious involvement in ushering in the apocalypse. I'm not one of those folks who foams at the mouth every time something happens in Israel, taking it as a "sign the end is near". So, in that respect, I don't mentally give Israel a free pass to do whatever they please.

    The problem is that this issue is so emotional for many people, particularly as Israel is held in special regard by some members of Abrahamic religions, that no one can sometimes take one side and at other times go to bat for the other guy. You're either an anti-semite or you're a Zionist. There is no grey area in the middle where you can recognize a democracy's right to defend itself against terrorist acts and threats of war while still speaking out against miscarriages of justice.

    It seems to me that the world, collectively, has had enough of this Middle East madness in Palestine and are hell-bent on ending it, one way or another.

    Biblical prophecy indicates to me that Israel will be forced to make concessions that will result in the Temple Mount in Jerusalem becoming common ground for religious plurality and the Palestinians getting some sort of autonomy.

    As for radio talk show hosts being Zionist shills, radio is the one medium, besides the web that is currently full-spectrum and permits freedom of speech.

    While Israel commandos stepped into a political hornet's nest, I don't think that any other sovereign nation would behaved any differently if a flotilla headed for its shores to support a separatist movement.

    Imo, Israel is being pressured more for the perceived 'apartheid' than the actual incident.

    Israel is the South Africa of the 21st century, according to global opinion.

    While I will be one of the first to say that the US is probably a bit too much pro Isreal, to the point where they can't even make legitimate criticism, the conspiracies are just silly.

    Why is it silly when it pertains to Israel but not silly when it pertains to Muslims overseas living in caves?

    Where exactly do Muslims live in caves?

    I'm drawing a blank. All I can possibly think of are Afghan insurgents camping in caves to remain hidden, but that's not really "living" there permanently.

    AM radio is generally populated by right-wingers who, for reasons I don't entirely understand, feel that the nation of Israel can do no wrong and will defend whatever atrocities they commit.

    pick your poison, neocon politians, with zionism and neoliberal trade policies, or the left and get pc orthodoxy, degenerate art, and marxism. It all springs from the same source.

    I've been told the US military has been bombing caves in Afghanistan and Pakistan to try to kill Osama bin Laden. This was a few years back though. Maybe they started bombing palaces in Saudi Arabia since OBL took a sea nap.

    When will people realise that Israel isn’t

    in the business of manipulating the

    mind of the people of the USA.

    what possible reason would Israel have to

    manipulate the mind of the people of the USA?

    what would Israel gain by

    manipulating the mind of the people of the USA?

    People really shouldn’t take this seriously,

    Because it just isn’t true.

    I will simply never understand the anti-Israelie sentiment that is out there. If I were Arab, I had much rather live in Israel than any Arab nation.

    Based on how the Israelis treat the Palestinians you might want to rethink that.

    Well, thing is, most Arabs who want to live there don't get to, because Israel forced them out. Being subject to ethnic cleansing tends to incite anti-sentiment against the one who did that to you.

    Well, for starters, a guarantee that the USA will continue to support Israel without question or reservation. Something which is quite critical if Israel wants to keep flaunting international law and defying international consensus.
