Most of what you say is left-wing dogma, not factual statements.

Reducing Corporate Taxes has resulted in hundreds of American companies returning to America where they will now pay taxes: the first benefit is more jobs for Americans; the second that total tax revenue is likely to go up, not down: The US government will receive Company Taxes from companies formerly paying tax to overseas countries, and thousands of people will be paying income tax instead of taking benefits from the Government. Sorry, but anyone who says “the rich get fabulously more rich through cuts to services for the poor” has pretty much written IDIOT across his back.

“Iran isn’t Palestine. Lumping them all together based on some shared religion or ethnicity is called racism.” Iran financially supports Hamas, and all the countries surrounding Israel have at one time or another vowed to wipe out Israel and several have tried to do so over the last 50 years. That is a fact, and nothing to do with racism, at least on my part. Accusing the Israelis of genocide is racism in my view. Israel is the Jewish homeland: they have a right to be there. They offer equal citizenship to Palestinians who, due to their own racism, refuse it. As you say “the Palestinians aren’t doing themselves any favours with a formal policy stating that Israel must not exist.” So the Israelis are forced to defend themselves against Palestinian terrorists who have the stated aim of killing every Israeli man, woman and child.

The Palestinians’ stated “common motive is the desire to destroy Israel and replace it with a Palestinian Arab state. The most prominent Islamist groups, such as Hamas, view the Israeli–Palestinian conflict as a religious jihad.” If there is racism in the area, it is endemic in Arab Muslims of the Middle East. To call self-defence genocide is so inaccurate I have to call it a lie.

Yes, the first amendment gives you the right to say any racist thing you want about the Jewish people, but it doesn’t give you the right to be believed, and the rest of us have the same right to call bullshit when you do.
