After making Puerto Rico the 51st state and the US Virgin Islands the 52nd state, of course.

No, stupid, but one does wonder if the state of the country would be better in western hands. You only have to look to Israel which seems one of the few civilized countries in the middle east even though war is on their doorstep, their policy is doing something right. Growing economy, growing university connections with other universities, great technological developments, tourism is popular, even their environmental and conservation progress is to be admired for the middle east.

Israel even very nearly qualifies to be in the US Visa Waiver Program but fails due to reprocity issues with Arab Americans.

Don't complain when you antagonize a lion that it might pounce back, 10 times the force. HAMAS control Palestine and HAMAS release a new video everyday detailing their aim to kill every Israeli, every Jew, even every westerner nowadays. What do you expect Israel to do when terrorists attack and threaten them? Ask them politely to go away? Not really. Israel and Palestine can not coexist, they never will so if there has to be one victor I pick Israel because unlike HAMAS and the Palestinians they don't want to kill me just for being born in the west

Did David "antagonize" Goliath?

Given how supportive you have been of Israel's development and praising their civilization, isn't referring to them in animal terms just a little bit derogatory?

Or are you saying that Israel has an insatiable thirst for Palestinian blood?

That's a stupid thing to say given that you and I both know Israel could destroy Gaza and The West Bank and kill everyone in it within a day if it wanted to.

If they wanted to wipe Palestine off the map they could do it in an afternoon.

Instead they prefer to continue to deny the Palestinians statehood whilst illegally, and gradually, stealing more of their land rendering any such Palestinian state infeasible (eventually).

No less feasible than an Israeli state once was.

Regardless, that does nothing to justify Israel's illegal occupation and annexation of Palestinian territories (which have the clear aim of subsuming East Jerusalem, for example, into Israel).

It's your personal opinion how you receive such a remark. Some people take being compared to a lion very honoured, just because you have a lower opinion of animals does not mean the rest of us do. I love lions so we are all different
