Israel slaps NRA in the face
Israel slaps the NRA in the face. Perfect example of you thinking your friend has your back, but in reality they don't: Israel rejects NRA's guns-in-schools claim - CBS News
The Israeli government has long been socialist in nature, and while their military is based on a citizenry able to rapidly form in the a larger military, they have never really been pro-individual weapon owners. I do know that several Israeli citizens have suggested defending schools as a possible solution, as their comments have been brought up on several pro-Israel Facebook pages I "like".
Also, look who published that story: CBS is pretty much the Communist Broadcasting Studio these days, so I take everything they say with a grain of salt.
Alpha-17 the news about Israel and NRA was syndicated so it just wasn't CBS who reported it. I just grabbed the first link I saw.
My point for posting the article was a tip that before you quote a source you better make sure they agree with you or it just might bite you back in rear as was stated in the article.
You have to take everything that comes out of Israel with a grain of salt. Their media is just as liberal as ours and they report in the same manner, to which it suits their socialist philosophy.
The Israelis are an enigma, as are the Jewish people as a whole. Here, they vote for the people who hate them the most - it's unnerving and a total conundrum. Over there they are controlled by TV and the MSM just as our populace is. It will eventually lead to WWIII or their total demise, one or the other.
They cannot survive without us and the real dilemma is that their strongest supporters are Christians for Israel even those most Christians for Israel are strong Conservatives.
While I believe that Israel could survive with out us, the second part is absolutely true, and I most certainly fall in that category.

Without our billions in aid, plus billions more in military hardware support including parts and expertise to keep their machine running, they would fall by the wayside in a hurry.
Their largest source of money to apply to their day to day operations is money, in the form of aid and gifting, that comes from us ... not their GDP.
We get very little in return these days, IMHO.
We do rely, to some degree, on their Foreign Intelligence Service (Mossad) when it comes to matters in the middle east.
Some say it is a fair trade, I'm not so sure. When I was there we were often times harassed by their Shabak. They would come in and toss rooms anytime they felt like it when we were not there - or knock on our doors in the middle of the night asking to see our papers ... for no reason other than to harrass. It was part of the game and we always just laughed-it-off but still, they really do not treat Americans kindly for the most part.
Israel is not the way our country and Constitution was set up, it was set up to be more like Switzerland.
I don't think this matters anymore. We are about to become a 3rd world country if this keeps up.

Whatever. Not here to correct every fallacy. As far as the Jews are concerned, a Jewish Israeli friend put it best when she told me, "Place ten Jews on a desert island and within a year you will have 30 unions, 65 political parties and not one constitution."
Not all of their news is left. While I do hit Haaretz in my daily news travels, I also hit this one:
Israel News | Israel's #1 News Site - Israel National News

israelis arent even good to each other. i evict them on a regular basis for being rude. the 2k for the 2 bedroom is paid but some of them that have passed through here... live like pigs filthy, rude and dishonest biggots. its a shame really, all the fraud.... we built this building with the jewish in mind all kosher kitchen lay outs and rooms n shit. even the pool is situated to where it faces nothing for the ladies to reserve their modesty. but she with the pen laughs last... three day notice. a lot of domestic violence out of this group towards the ladies. i find the rabbis to be the worst to their wimmin types.
the things you learn about a culture in this business... ive learned a lot about wealthy humans in this business. suffice it to say it has sharpened my senses.
and we have a very strong usmc presence in isreal.
