Dual Citizenship: WTF?   Leave a comment

Normally, I’d agree with you but there’s two points where I beg to differ. The first is in reference to your phrase “Israel is no democracy”…correct me if I’m wrong here but last time I remember, Israel – for all of its’ warts – was one of the few, if not the only ‘liberal democracy’ in the Middle East, so to say that they are no democracy is a bit of an insult. The second point of disagreement is in regards to your belief that those Americans who decided – of their own volition – to serve in the IDF should be stripped of their American citizenship….just out of curiosity, who died and made you god of what constitutes American citizenship? By that rationale, Americans who served, for instance, in the Abraham Lincoln Brigade during the Spanish Civil War should’ve been stirpped of their citizenship…or does it only apply under certain circumstances? As for Israel & the current Gaza conflict…well, until Hamas and the rest of the Arab world recognizes Israel’s right-to-exist, as far as I’m concerned…Hamas (and the rest of Gaza) can go pound sand.

Opinion from the desk of the Editor:

I have written about this occurrence before…..and I still have a problem with it.

Back in the days following the end of the American Civil War, the president of the CSA, Jefferson Davis, was exiled from his own country for leading an uprising against the duly elected government of the United States of America…….and there have been occasions when Americans working as mercenaries or as they like to be called today security consultants, lost their citizenship because that fought in a foreign war that the Us was not involved in at the time……

I know you want to know where I am going with this, right?

It seems that in the most recent war on Gaza two Americans have been killed serving in the IDF………

Two Americans who were soldiers for the Israel Defense Forces were killed in fighting in the Gaza Strip.
