I get tired of endless supply of anit-semitism charges whenever there is a criticism of Israel.
There was no personal attack. In my opinion the OP is calling for the destruction of Israel. You're certainly free to disagree with my opinion.

I have no use for bigots regardless of the focus of their hate. Welcome to ignore.

Gee, I hope when I correctly pointed out they took the Hamas view that I didn't offend them. It is the truth and for all you know they may be proud of it and potentially a member, how do we know?

Well that is exactly what he is calling for; however, you jumped to the conclusion that his opinion was "Jew Hating". I did not read anywhere in the OP that he wanted the Jews in Israel Killed only that he wanted Israel to stop being a soverign country.

Frankly, I believe Israel is a soverign country and has a right to exist, but it is up to them to protect themselves, which they are more than capable of doing.

Israel's business is her own. Not mine.

I offered my opinion that the OP's call for the destruction of Israel was based on a hatred of Jews. Calling for the demise of a sovereign nation is rarely based on a love for the people of that nation.

Well many orthodox Jews disagree that there should be a nation of Israel. Are they too, Jew hating?
