Bizarrely enough a lot of Jews are liberals. How they do the mental gymnastics of being a Jew and yet supporting those who would obliterate Israeli Jews (and by extension, them) beats the hell out of me. (Christians also have their various counterparts in the conflict).
They might also make a note to themselves that reads "Putting Middle Eastern domination into the hands of Islamic regimes will also further the killing, raping, mutilation, torturing, maiming (and cause the endless suffering) of (some such subjected Muslim men) but mostly of millions of subjected women and female children".
Another happening thing is that many, if not most, libertarians support the Arabs vs Israel. Now, I am libertarian and am not on board with this at all. I believe the reason many libertarians support the Arabs is born of a fallacy in logic, i.e. they automatically assume that because Israel has the most (weapons) power -- Israel is therefore wrong. Sorry, fellow libertarians, not good logic. Try again.

Israel, however, only has the most weapons power of any single Middle Eastern nation, as my friend Mechel Samburg pointed out when he said:
"The bottom line is, Israel is the one outnumbered in land and population, even with US support, all those Arab and Moslem lands get support from the UN, US, EU, etc. so Israel is in fact, the underdog."
Groupthink also comes into play. Libertarians, please stick to the tenets of libertarianism and stop using errors in reason, and often common hatred, to promulgate bullshit. Stopping aid to all foreign countries is one thing, however, don't use all this as an excuse to have another holocaust. What was that? Did I hear you say that Israel is the one doing the holocaust on Arabs? Nice try.
Do I hear a call for Israel's need for self defense or does self defense apply only when convenient?
