Israel and Palestine

Israel invade Gaza yesterday. If this violence turned into a more defined war, the US would surely back Israel. But what would are argument be for coming to their defense? Was Israel right in their attacks so far? Would it be a ‘just war’? Could we handle supporting this ‘war’ if we are in two of our own already?

The ‘Holy Land’ is not really holy today.

One thought on “Israel and Palestine

  1. I’m with you – this whole back-israel-no-matter-what thing is confusing to me. I can totally see palestine’s side, especially after taking a course in middle eastern history (despite the desperate israeli slant presented at my southern baptist university). SO not a black and white, good guy/bad guy issue.
