Wait a minute. Let me see if I get this straight. You're equating Israel with Vietnam and saying it's a failure of a country?? So it's WRONG to try to make a home for a people who have been fighting for a homeland for thousands of years, but have been persecuted by the same groups of people for those same thousands of years? Pardon me, but I really don't think Israel has done so bad for itself since it became a country over half a century ago. Considering that Israel is up against a people who have been attempting to push them into the sea for thousands of years, I think they're doing remarkably well, in fact.

Now tell me how Israel is like Vietnam, because I can't for the life of me understand what you're talking about.
