The United States should support Israel because they have been plagued with terrorism and they are our strongest ally in the Middle East. Iran is not only a threat to Israel but to the US. It only makes sense to support Israel in the fight against Islamic terrorism.

I accept your challenge.

US shouldn't support Israel for some reason. The condition at the middle east now is very thrilling. Every people on war and if US are backing Israel for support on war then it will not end the problem. US seems to ends everything with war and war, why don't we create peace in the existence of the world. The war will just causing problem on everything. Economy, health, education, that were the most intriguing part of a country. And US supporting Israel will be bad as the Vietnam war back at 1970s

Israel has the right to exist. Everyday Palestinian terrorists attack Israeli citizens simply based on their Jewish faith. The last time Jews were attacked because of their faith, was by the Nazis. We cannot allow this. We as Americans and other western countries are also under the threat of terrorism. We do not have to enter war in order to support Israel. We can impose sanctions on countries that fund terror like Iran and Turkey. We can arm the Israelis.

Whoa, Whoa, Whoa. BoP are basicly on Pro's side. Since when Palestina attacks Israel? Israel is just expanding their territory over palestine. Where did you heard that Palestine attaks the Israel? Do you even heard on Gaza? there's a lot of Palestinian dies in there since 2014.

Debate Round No. 2

Pro

Israel has expanded its territory after it has fought off its enemies during wartime. It held on to those territories because they were claimed after the war. Everyday there are stabbings car rammings shootings and bombings by Palestinians against Israelis. Israel has every right to extinguish any threat to its security and its citizens. Israel has killed civilians but not willingly. The Palestinian terrorists use civilians as human shields and run to the media when Israel accidentally kills a civilian. The difference between pro Palestinian extremists and Israel is that the extremists target civilians and that Israel targets armed aggressors. Israel has long been the peace seeker in this conflict.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeiture. Con didn't make words that should be capitalized at the beginning, and there are some grammatical errors. For example: Palestine, Middle East, "the war will just causing", There, gaza, and many more. So better spelling and grammar to Pro. However, the sources used by Con is reliable enough. My 2 points goes to both of them.
