    “Individuals on both sides of this divide are—have proven capable of, and in our view, are guilty of acts of terrorism,” State Department Spokesman John Kirby told reporters following questions about the spike in violence.

    So now that Israel has been declared a terrorist state by Obama, does that mean he will try and give them more nukes?

    Hamas has praised the knife attacks in Israel, however, the US said Israel used excessive force in response.

    Now that Israel is a terrorist state like Hamas, is there any such thing as excessive force?

    Israel should do like North Korea. Just keep making nukes and threatening the US.

    Israel is now encouraging its citizens to carry guns because of the knife attacks.

    I wonder if they were inspired by Ben Carson saying that the Jews should have been armed before the Holocaust.

    It looks like Palestinians are taking a page out of the ISIS book and destroying historical and religious sites like Joseph's tomb.

    he didn't misspoke. israel does in fact terrorist acts.

    that's not important though.


    we don't know yet what obama said, thinks, feels.

    you however went straight to blaming him for something he wasn't responsible for.

    i find it funny every time you prove what a joke you are.

    So you agree that Israel is a terrorist state?

    It's no secret that Obama hates Zionism. His spiritual mentor for over a decade, Reverend Wright, is a known anti-Zionist who consistently gave sermons condemning the Zionist state and supporting the Palestinians.

    Individuals committing terrorist acts does not equal a State being a terrorist State.

    So you would say that Israel is not a terrorist state?

    What equates a terrorist state? Is it Obama bombing the hell out of Libya? Is that a terrorist state?

    The issue isn't what I would say but what you claimed Obama said.

    What constitutes a "Terrorist State" is not at issue. The spokesman referred to individuals and not the State of Israel. So all that the Obama administration has done is acknowledge what everyone knows which is that some Israelis have attacked Palestinians in what amount to terrorist attacks. They did not claim that the Israelis that did this received either open or covert backing from the Israeli state, so I don't think you can credibly construct any claim that the Obama administration has declared Israel a terrorist state from this.

    Why do you say Obama calls Israel a terrorist state when it was a spokesman who said those words? You think spokesmen never say anything the boss didn't ok? You should have titled the op, Obama spokesman says Israel is a terrorist state.

    Or do we now say you are assumed to be guilty as opposed to you are assumed to be innocent till proven guilty?

    ... In 1935, the Irgun, a Zionist underground military organization, split off from the Haganah.[2] The Irgun were the armed expression of the nascent ideology of Revisionist Zionism founded by Ze'ev Jabotinsky. He expressed this ideology as "every Jew had the right to enter Palestine; only active retaliation would deter the Arab and the British; only Jewish armed force would ensure the Jewish state".[3]
    During the 1936–39 Arab revolt in Palestine, Palestinian Arabs fought for the end of the Mandate and the creation of an Arab state based on the whole of Palestine. They attacked both British and Jews as well as some Palestinian Arabs who supported a Pan-Arabism. Mainstream Zionists, represented by the Vaad Leumi and the Haganah, practiced the policy of Havlagah (restraint), while Irgun militants did not follow this policy and called themselves "Havlagah breakers."[4] The Irgun began bombing Palestinian Arab civilian targets in 1938.[2] While the Palestinian Arabs were "carefully disarmed" by the British Mandatory authorities by 1939, the Zionists were not.[2]
    After the beginning of World War II, the Haganah and Irgun suspended their activity against the British in support of their war against Nazi Germany.[5] The smaller Lehi continued anti-British attacks and direct action throughout the war. At that time, the British also supported the creation and the training of Palmach, as a unit that could withstand a German offensive in the area, with the consent of Yishuv which saw an opportunity to get trained units and soldiers for the planned Jewish state[6] and during 1944–1945, the most mainstream Jewish paramilitary organization, Haganah, cooperated with the British authorities against the Lehi and Etzel.[7]
    After World War II, between 1945 and the 29 November 1947 Partition vote, British soldiers and policemen were targeted by Irgun and Lehi. Haganah and Palmah first collaborated with the British against them, particularly during the Hunting Season, before actively joining them in the Jewish Resistance Movement, then finally choosing an official neutral position after 1946 while the Irgun and the Lehi went on their attacks against the British.[8]
    The Haganah carried out violent attacks in Palestine, such as the liberation of interned immigrants from the Atlit camp, the bombing of the country's railroad network, sabotage raids on radar installations and bases of the British Palestine police. It also continued to organize illegal immigration.[9]
    In February 1947, the British announced that they would end the mandate and withdraw from Palestine and they asked the arbitration of the United Nations.

    In April, 6 weeks before the termination of the Mandate, the Jewish militias launched wide operations to control the territory dedicated to them by the Partition Plan.[10] Many atrocities occurred during this time. The Arab population in the mixed cities of Tiberias, Safed, Haifa, Jaffa, Beisan and Acre and in the neighbouring villages fled or were expelled during this period. During the Battle for Jerusalem (1948) where the Jewish community of 100,000 people was besieged, most Arab villages of the Tel Aviv – Jerusalem corridor were captured by Jewish militias and leveled.[11]
    At the beginning of the civil war, the Jewish militias organized several bombing attacks against civilians and military Arab targets. On 12 December, Irgun placed a car bomb opposite the Damascus Gate, killing 20 people.[12] On 4 January 1948, the Lehi detonated a lorry bomb against the headquarters of the paramilitary Najjada located in Jaffa's Town Hall, killing 15 Arabs and injuring 80.[12][13] During the night between 5 and 6 January, the Haganah bombed the Semiramis Hotel in Jerusalem that had been reported to hide Arab militiamen, killing 24 people.[14] The next day, Irgun members in a stolen police van rolled a barrel bomb[15] into a large group of civilians who were waiting for a bus by the Jaffa Gate, killing around 16.[16] Another Irgun bomb went off in the Ramla market on February 18, killing 7 residents and injuring 45.[17] On 28 February, the Palmah organised a bombing attack against a garage at Haifa, killing 30 people.[18]
