    ...Do "Fatah first" advocates believe that financially rewarding the already heavily-armed and well-funded "security" fighters of Fatah, who turned tail and ran at the sight of Hamas gunmen, will lead them now to fight to retake their posts, having gotten a check from Washington? Do they think the PLO's corruption is best combated by re-upping the employment contracts for its 200,000 dysfunctional bureaucrats--60,000 of whom are the gangsters, thugs, and terrorists associated with the PLO's 13 so called "security services"?
    With Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert dutifully nodding by his side, President Bush called last week's debacle "a wonderful opportunity for freedom." How exactly is the resurrection of the world's founding terrorist organization a "wonderful opportunity" for anything other than more terrorism and corruption?....

    Choosing which organization to supporrt when both are evil is risky, as always.

    Maybe we could support them both and hope they kill each other off.:thumbs:

    Maybe we could tell Israel we're with them all the way.

    IMHO, anyhoo.

    Give both sides all the machete's and swords they want.

    Israel must see by now that America can't be depended on forever. They may have to depend on God soon. :)

    It is immoral for the United States government to send taxpayers' money to any foreign entity. All foreign aid paid for by us taxpayers should be ended by the federal government.

    And as it should be, shouldn't it? The trouble is that many see America as a replacement to God. We all depend on God whether we acknowledge it or not.

    Maybe you or LE can answer these questions. Does the U.S. have any defense treaties with Israel? Is U.S. foreign aid to other countries constitutional?

    You realize that this is not the attitude God would have, don't you?

    That's debatable.

    Psalm 2:4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    #1 - Dont' know, don't care. Genesis 12:3 is good enough for me: "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

    #2 - No, IMO.

    Immoral?

    Interesting choice of words. Care to explain?

    The federal government collects taxes through the threat of the use of force. Just as it is immoral to for a person or a group of persons to take money by force and give it to another person or group of person(even for a "good" cause), it is immoral for a government to take money by force and give it to another person or group of persons or governmental entity(even for a "good" cause). Just because a government does it does not make such action lose its immoral character.

    Federal tax money should only be spent on items allowed by the federal constitution. Giving my money to a foreign government ain't one of those enumerated powers.
