Israel's Occupation of Palestine

Which is worse, war mongering for profit and arm sales or the selective "reporting" across the board in the media?

The current war between Israel and Hezbollah is crushing Lebanon and its citizens.
An occupation is still an occupation.
And Israel is the occupying force in this conflict.
Israel has ignored the U.N. repeatedly. Leaving the U.N. to appear toothless.
The U.N. resolution 242 called for Israel to pull out of what they deemed as occupied territories the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, the West Bank, and the Golan Heights.
Israel has continued their choke hold over the Palestinians building a system of settlements and roadways that make everyday life for the Palestinians nearly impossible.
The construction of these "Jewish" only settlements on Palestinian land is hard for me to comprehend. They destroy the homes and farms of the Palestinians, then rebuild their own settlements on the Palestinians lands.
This appears to be a gradual ethnic cleansing process.

Isn't is obvious to the rest of the world? What's wrong with this picture?
And why can't the U.N. get Israel to comply?
Maybe it has something to do with Israel's alliance to the U.S..
After all isn't that where they get their economic and military aid?

Why is it that the media fails miserably to report the facts?
The U.S. media is apparently under the watchful eye of AIPAC(a special Jewish interest PR and spin machine).
They consistently report when the Israeli army(IDF) defends their position,
but the "position" is an occupation of Palestinian land.
They only defend Israel's position as the land grab continues.

The Israeli occupation is horrific but so is the Palestinian response.
Often in the name of resistance they employ the most heinous tactic, a suicide bomber in a city surrounded by civilians. These resistance moves that grow from the frustration of a people whose rights and freedoms having been stripped from them, only feed the hate and violence.

It is said "One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist".
People driven out of their collective minds by the occupation that leaves them feeling there is no way out, then turn to violence.
Hezbollah is referred to as a resistance movement and as Islamic fascists.
Backed by Syria and Iran, Hezbollah lobs rockets into Israel and Israel continues to bomb Lebanon in an attempt to take possession of more land and drive Hezbollah out.
After a month of fighting; all the death and destruction; how is that strategy working out for you?

The U.S. and Israel are both presently engaged in an illegal occupation on foreign soil.
So where are the "world police"?
Oh yeah, that is a role usually undertaken by the U.S..
In the words of George W.Bush, "If you're not with us, you're against us".

You're just another Jew hater who'd rather see a whole people vaporized.

Hitler had the same idea.
Red Neck!
sorry dim wits..
I do not hate jews..

I do hate religious extemes and the ignorance of the masses..

But you are entitled to an opinion, even an uninformed one.

have a nice day..
