Once again conservative media has it wrong
Once again conservative media has it wrong

I have been hearing over and over again how so many people are anti Israel because they disagree with the amount of bombing in Gaza. It seems like the conservative media has been having a field day with accusations that those who want the death of Palestinian innocents to end are anti Israel and therefore somehow anti American and it then somehow leads to liberalism being evil and eventually socialism, Obama being born in Kenya and Blah Blah blah.

   But here’s why as usually is the case the Conservative media is wrong.
Simply being against the bombing does not make one anti israel.
I know I am very pro Israel. I believe Israel has a right to exist and flourish. They are the indigenous people to their land and they definitely need to protect themselves from Hamas terrorists that are being funded by God knows who. Having said all that, I dont think they should be blanket bombing Gaza. I disagree with Benjamin Netanyahu’s policy of carpet bombing his way to peace.
  You would think that people who are very familiar with being against a countries leaders policies doesnt mean you are against the country. I have many friends who disagree with President Obama when it comes to many of his policy decisions but I don’t think for one minute they are anti American for feeling that way. When I hear someone say they think Obamacare is wrong and they want it repealed I dont scream they are Anti American wanting our country to fail. I think they are simply against affordable health care. So why is it that I and many like minded people like me cant say were against the bombing and not get called anti Israel..
