I don't like this argument
I don't like when I see everyone praising Israel or Jews for all these inventions that help mankind. It's as if they're saying, "See how much we help the world. Now you have to be nice to us." Actually, even if we weren't so smart, innovative and helpful to the world, we shouldn't be killed, hurt or even hated. Even if a Jew did not develop the polio vaccine, Jews shouldn't be killed by the millions. You don't kill or hurt or hate innocent people because they're innocent. SImple as that. It's Golus and they'll always hate us even if we tell them how wonderful we are. And we don't deserve what they do to us even if we didn't have more computers per capita than any other country in the world. THis argument is brought up again and again and it irritates me to no end.

Partly AGREE, PARTLY OBJECT
PLEASE DO NOT SUFFER CHAVY, IN VAIN. Hidding facts because of extant old hate is manipulating and dishonest. Yet extreme pride goes before failure. This may apply if only the Jews state their past and recent factual background. Recorded facts and statistics filed by others do not lie. Hidding them does. And hiding them would fail to reduce hate.

Chavy, it's not that simple
Chavy, you have to understand that many people have no clue about Israel. All they hear is the Pallywood propaganda, which makes Israel sound like a brutal police state. Stand With Us is a wonderful organization which fights these lies, educates the world about the true nature of Israel, and equips college students with the intellectual tools to fight back against the virulent Israel bashing on many campuses. The perceptual war is on two fronts: 1. Exposing the evil of Israel's enemies (which are often anti-Semites); and, 2. showing people who are unfamiliar with Israel or Jews that we don't have horns. After all, every friend we make is one less person who potentially wants to kill us (theoretically - even supposed friends and neighbors turned in Jews, during the Holocaust).

We are reminded: "He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root, Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit....Stay Strong

Palestinians come to Israel to have their children's lives
saved by Israelis. then they go back home and plan how to murder Israelis and glorify those who succeed in doing so. It takes a special kind of insanity to behave like that.

Doesn't matter. Jews will always be hated.
The Beatles wrote, "Money can't buy me love." All the high tech and medical contributions Jews and Israel produces won't change a thing in that department. To be loved, you have to be cute and cuddly :)

Goodness is quiet
The reason why people are (unjustifiably) antagonistic about Israel, regardless of the amazing good they do is because "goodness is quiet."http://www.aish.com/ci/s/The-Connecticut-School-Shooting.html
