    So Trump is defending the Bush administration? Just a few days ago the MSM was posting cuddly photos of Bush and Michelle Obama holding hands and exchanging candy at McCain's funeral. You go after Trump on this, you go after Bush as well.

    Well the US did commit war crimes against people in Afghanistan and Iraq. Israel also committed war crimes against Palestinians and those people who suffered war crimes would like to take those responsible to the International Court for trial. Guess who does not want to be taken to court..? If you are that innocent why not go to court? What are you afraid of? Immune from courts and immune from prosecution.This puppet is about as evil as can be.

    Was this statement made today? Anyone here know when he made this statement?

    Genuine question. What's with your beef with Israel? What have they ever done to you? They are one of the very few allies and friends we have in the Middle East.

    Genuine answer for you. Too many people have died in the Middle East. Would be nice to see everyone living side by side in peace.

    They're our friends and a close ally @stylinexpat These people suffered the holy-cost from Adolf Hitler. They where given back holy land from the Brits, suffered from two failed bloody invasions and yet here we are.

    @darksithpro, everyone would be close allies if the fighting and killings stopped. Many people have suffered a lot in the Middle East these days as well. There have been hundred of thousands of casualties that have taken place in the Middle East. A casualty is a casualty and anyone who kills anyone should be held accountable for it. In America or any other country when one commits a crime they are held accountable for it in court. No one should be immune from any war crimes or killings. The Palestinians have also suffered from bloody invasions as well. Everyone is entitled to justice. All humans are equal.

    But the Palestinians live on hatred and nonacceptance of a Jewish state. They would rather build Katusha and grad rockets, fired into Israel, rather than re-build their hospitals, schools and communities. We have been funding them for decades, only to realize Hamas has disproportionately used these funds to build secret tunnels into Israeli settlements to kidnap and kill Jews, and to build tunnels into Egypt to smuggle munitions and rockets to attack Jews. Where does the madness stop?

    Let me ask you a question. Do you support or oppose of anyone accused of war crimes from being tried for their crimes?

    Not on it's face value. I don't agree with Jewish settlements, but I also don't approve of Hamas elected government to carry out terrorist operations against Jews. The old saying one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter might be true. However I think the Palestinians would receive much greater freedoms and movement if they weren't so fixated on killing and bombing their eternal enemy, the Zionist Jews.

    Soldiers should not be tried for war crimes, when they follow direct orders from their superiors. In US, soldiers refusing orders, have to deal with legal consequences, even if they refuse to follow orders on foreign soil.
    If a soldier goes rogue, that’s another matter.

    Example.
    US soldier, rapes or kills a civilian do to his/her own accord.

    At the end of the day, it’s up to the court to decide who is guilty, innocent and how each individual should be punished according to law.
    That’s my understanding.

    Very much Anymore.??

    Just on weekends , every other month?
    That makes it ok, because they don’t kill, very much any more?

    That's only because of the security fence/wall and the rolling IDF checkpoints. If the IDF didn't do that there would be countless bombings, knife and gun attacks on Jews.

    What exactly is the issue with Hamas killing soldiers that are their enemies?

    It is the nature of warfare itself that makes atrocities pretty much inevitable. The US and Britain certainly engaged in war crimes during WWII. And from the outset made it pretty clear they were not going to allow their troops to be subject to International Court justice. All the while leading the prosecution of Nazi and Japanese war criminals. Hypocritical? Sure.

    That said, for the US Government to threaten Judges crosses a line that is somehow different.

    Maybe. But they don’t happen. Meaning your initial criteria is met.

    It is sad that the Israeli government cannot act reasonably even without civilian casualties. And it is also sad that that is leading to more anti-semitism.

    The legitimate, albeit extreme, government of Palestine?

    Worth noting saint Ronnie and Thatcher supported the Khumer Rouge in Cambodia. And they make Hamas look like choir boys so...

    Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization by the US and the EU, but I bet you knew that.

    If Hamas are terrorists so are the Israeli government who kill far more civilians. And the Israeli government actions make it easy for lazy people on the left to blame the Jews, which is awful.

    Hamas uses little innocent children to build tunnels to capture and kill innocent Jews and to transport weapons. They also indoctrinate kids to hate and want to kill Jews. They use characters from Disney such as Mickey Mouse to promote their hate and disdain for the Jewish peoples, encouraging children to use violence against Jews.
