how to petition in . FACEBOOK

Please give instructions on HOW to petition to FACEBOOK. ALSO.I believe we are the chosen people,BUT not just to say this to all other people and anger them against US. We were chosen to spread the word of G-D and try to show all that it is the BEST way to live, BUT we do-not do this (in Israel or outside). I am ashamed for us, when i see(some) Israelis outside of Israel.and the way they act,Talk, and think that they can do any ,and every thing.We should be setting an example to the rest of the World.. WE DO but in the wrong way..

When did Israel EXACTLY become the bad guy?

I mean, really, has no one outside of the Jewish population read the Torah and the Tanakh? G-d gave the Jews Eretz Yisrael. Not to the Arabs or anyone else. The Jews. Jews are G-d's beloved. Threatening to kill us when we have done nothing to warrant murder only incites His anger, so I say let them scream all they like, yet at the same time, we cannot let the Muslims develop into another Nazi regime. We're always the world's "perfect scapegoat".

The new stormtroopers

The so-called Jihadis and their sympathizers are just a continuation of Hitler's plan. Muslims have a long history of collaborating with Nazis. They will see the same fate. Furthermore they deny their Koran-"And thereafter We said to the Children of Israel:Dwell securely in the Promised Land.And when the last warning comes to pass,we will gather you together in a mingled crowd."Koran(17:104,The Night Journey). Is your shirt black or brown?

The nasty anti-Jewish statements are unacceptable. The writers are incredibly ignorant of history. You believe the persistent lies of anti-semitic hatemongers and do not try to verify facts. Israel has NEVER targeted innocent civilians. They are one of few countries who have such a policy.Yes, children have been caught in the crossfire,but never done purposefully. Have a very few soldiers been found guilty of crimes.? That occurs in this country. Israel is hated precisely because they believe in morality and decency. I am heartsick to hear the lies in the comments by U-tube followers. Seek to learn the truth. I know it is incredible that journalists do not always tell the truth, but often they do not have immediate access to the facts. Goldstone's retraction of blaming Israel for war crimes now should prove to you that the truth usually comes out, but news stories that are inaccurate must be evaluated based on the reputation of the country. Israel does not engage in war crimes,nor horrible acts as purported by Palestinians or even the BBC or Reuters. Hard to believe but true.Both have miosreported time and time again. Check it out.
