Why do many on the left support the Palestinians over Israel?
If you look at the history, I don’t see how anyone could come to the conclusion that the Palestinians are a victim.

What is the motivation for the left to support the Palestinians over the Israelis?

It really depends on what Trump is supporting at the moment.

Since when did the left give a shite about history? Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.

They also support communism over capitalism. They don't know how to think freely.

Listen to the first 6 martyrmade podcasts. This is not a black or white, one or the other issue

Good job in breaking down a very nuanced subject into such an elementary either/or scenario.

I would say the far left supports the Palestinians, but the mainstream Democratic Party slurps Israel as much as the mainstream Republican Party. The last two Presidential candidates who were expressly opposed to Israeli influence in American politics were Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan, especially Buchanan. That logically made them more sympathetic to the Palestinians.

They are usually against anything associated with the God of the Bible?

Because somehow people on the left can think more on there own than people on the right.

Many people on the right just love to suck Jewish cock.

Doesn't mean the rest of the country wants to sell out our country to another one.

WTF does the Bible have to do with today's Judaism?

I think it's an extension of their dislike for the Judeo-Christian tradition.
The Jews returned to Zion in 1947, fulfilling a Biblical prophecy. The fact that such a small nation, with such a small population, has held at bay the Muslim hordes in the ME for 70 years suggests Divine favor.

You don't have an argument. Your argument is to call Republicans stupid for supporting Israel while ignoring the fact that Democrats support Israel just as much.

That's bull shite. Besides Jewish democrats, Democrats don't support Israel. Why else would somebody making a thread asking why so many on the left don't support Israel?

A good argument could be made that a number of states have more claim than the Jews do. The last truly Jewish state hasnt controlled Jerusalem for 2000+ years.

In the meantime, the Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, and Ottomans have controlled that space. They have much more historically relevant claims than the Jewish state does.

It wasnt until Europe decided to really mess up the neighborhood that a Jewish state was pushed.
