    The US House of Representatives voted this afternoon by a vote of 344 to 36 to REJECT the Goldstone Report in US Foreign Policy, and in doing so, REFUSE to call Israel's actions in Gaza war crimes.

    And I, for one, am outraged!

    What should be done? Another human bomb on the streets of Israel or perhaps rocket attacks on Jerusalem?

    Who'd have thunk it?
    Right-wing, trailer trash bureaucrats rejecting objective UN reports.

    Oh well, I hope they all die slowly and painfully of bowel cancer.

    Tells much about Israel and their allies.

    It's fully known that Israel is a criminal state. Every state that supports Israel in their criminal affairs is also ...

    LOL.

    Fully known? Fully known by whom?

    By all you stand-offish Europeans sitting up there in the comfort of your safe countries and pallidly wagging your finger and tsking at a country the continued existence of which you don't give a damn about?

    I have news for you. In the REAL World, trite phrases like "criminal state" are meaningless. Israel has to do what it perceives to be in the best interest of its own survival; and if people like you who would be perfectly happy to see Israel wiped out and who never pay more than half-hearted attention to ME politics anyway don't like or understand its methods; frankly, Israel doesn't give a damn. No offense.

    Perhaps I'm being too emotional about this issue, I admit that.

    But I do get the sense that people consistently and unflinchingly refer to Israel as a "criminal state" in general terms rather than criticizing specific Israeli actions are people who would have no problem with Israel not existing. In fact, from Fabian's past comments ("Damn Terrorist State" comes to mind), I sense that he might advocate the forcible dissolution of Israel or would at least not oppose it.

    If I'm wrong, Fabian, please say so.
