The terror state of Israel, who is funded and backed by the United States, has continued to violate international law in Gaza and the West Bank regardless of UN resolutions.  It is our support of Israel that causes so much disdain and resentment for the United States throughout the middle east.  Israel should have been given land from the German regime that attempted to wipe them out in the first place.  It is one group of crazy religious people disputing historical claims to land that another group of crazy religious people claim.  Jews, Muslims, and Christians all hold equally silly and made-up belief systems.  To support one over the other is foolish and responsible for the much of the hatred towards the United States.  If you reply, please use facts and logic instead of emotion and blind jingoism.
