Israel is not now, nor has it ever been, a free state...

It's a state based on a religion and from my view they have no interest in diversity of creed, beliefs or cultures.

They are a racist nation based on the definition of racism.

That is not an anti-Semite remark. That's just the fact, although I'm sure if any Israeli heard that, they might be offended because no one likes being called a racist.

I have absolutely nothing against anyone who is Jewish. Or any other religion.

I read the book "Auschwitz" when I was 13 years old. It was an utterly awful time in human history and it gave me nightmares as a youngster.

I sympathized with the Jewish cause of that era.

I fully support our liberation of the concentration camps in Germany, Poland etc in 1945.

But that's where our involvement should have ended.

I don't think the United States should have had a hand in creating the state of Israel (or any nation) - let alone one founded soley on a religious belief system.

Why do I feel this way? Because:

1. Creating a nation based only on a religion or creed is the opposite of the philosophies on which the United States was founded wherein everyone was welcome here regardless of their ethnicity, creed, country of origin, religion, ancestry or any other differences or diversities we may have.

2. When we intervened in that process, it meant we had to forcibly displace nearly 3/4 million people living in that area at the time. Is it any wonder they still hold a grudge today?.

3. Our founders told us to "avoid entangling alliances" EXACTLY of that type for which our involvement has caused us indefinite ties to the region, which means a lot of problems for us forever and ever.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
