I notice a thread started by Helen which apparently is very much pro Israel. I have great respect and admiration for Israelis and Jews in general. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that in order to establish a homeland for the Jews, many thousands of natives of Palestine were pushed out of their homes when Israel was created. The U.S. should pursue and even handed policy in dealing with the Arabs and the Jews. I am sure that God does not condone pushing people out of their homes for any reason.
