I support Israel.

I support Israel..that much is obvious. According to Pro Hamas supporters, that means so much more. Please read and commit to your long term memory:

Supporting Israel does NOT mean I support the “killing of kids”. I don’t support the killing of any civilian, kids or otherwise I have spent my life working my butt off to keep people alive. Support of Israel does not change that.

Supporting Israel does mean a few things to me. I support every group’s right to self determination. EVERY GROUP. Self determination is a basic human right. I support the rights of Jews, Muslim, Christians and every other religion to worship freely inside the borders of Israel. I support the rights of homosexuals to be allowed to live without fear of death or being arrested. I support the rights of every citizen of a country’s  voice to be heard, within reason. (if you are asking people to murder/hurt people, that is wrong). I support every group’s right to have representation in government, whether I agree with them or not.

In other words, I support the only country in the Middle East that ensures that all of these basic human rights are met.

Here is what I don’t support: Shooting rockets aimed at civilians, aimed to caused the death of Israelis. Using pictures from Syria, and labeling them as from Gaza. Shouting “Death to Jews” and using a hashtag “Hitler was right” and claiming you only have a problems with Israel. Cheering when an Israeli is killed. Calling for the destruction of Israeli and the mass murder of Israelis.

In other words, I dont support Hamas or Hamas supporters.

I pray for the citizens of Israel AND Gaza. They are all victims of Hamas. Both groups deserve peace. They have gone without it so long.
