You wrote:"There are a few points I would disagree with - as your analysis sounds very pro-Israel, while ignoring many things they have done."

You said earlier that you were a supporter of Israel. I assume that you are an honorable person, where your word means something to you, and that you are not a lying weasel, who uses lies and deceit to push some stupid, childish agenda.

You wrote:"2. Israel invaded and took Arab East Jerusalem - so this is a disputed area."

If you were truly a supporter of Israel, you should have known that, prior to the 1967 Arab war against Israel, Israel sent a message to King Hussein saying Israel would not attack Jordan unless he initiated hostilities. Shortly after that, King Hussein started an attack against Israeli civilian areas. Had Jordan not attacked, the status of Jerusalem would not have changed during the course of the war. Once the city came under fire, however, Israel needed to defend it, and, in doing so, took the opportunity to unify its capital once and for all.

This happened in 1967, yet you just said that you had been a supporter of Israel until Israel fought back against Iran's Hezbollah terrorist group. I am having a tough time believing that you are honorable and truthful, especially since you did not know how it came that Israel acquired West Jerusalem, and since you obviously don't support Israel's most important goal of having Jerusalem for it's capital.
