    If there has been a sea change in US Israeli policies, it was GW Bush recognizing the "realties" of the settlements. All Presidents before and after Bush have explicitly condemned the settlements as illegitimate. The US has always supported the existence, security and prosperity of Israel within its internationally recognized borders - with billions of dollars in aid each year and by vetoing many UN SC resolutions condemning Israel. The only real conflict betweeen Israel & the US relates to Gaza and the WB. Should the territorial integrity of the state of Israel (67 borders) ever be threatened, the US will support and defend Israel absolutely, but we have never supported the settlments and never will. It is absurd to regard this position as anti-semitic or anti-Israel. It merely follows the unanimous resolution of the UN SC (eg, 465). The US continues to pledge to support and defense of the state of Israel w/i the 67 borders. How can this be anti-Israel?
