Israel doesn't exist to please others. If left to "popular support", history shows no Jew is safe from a mob. Defense beats intimidation and Israel will NOT be intimidated by mobs of the great unwashed. Seems to me, before and after Israel's rebirth, there have always been those who thought it 'popular' to murder Jews. NEVER AGAIN!!!
