    1. Israel is not the only Democracy in the ME, and if it were, who cares? We're a Constitutional Republic and Democracies always turn into mob rule. You might not treat women like 2nd class citizens, but you certainly do treat Palestinians horribly. 2. The US and Israel have helped encourage Islamic extremism. It makes it easier to dehumanize and kill. 3. We were already stupid enough to attack Iraq for Israel, destroy our economy, our standing in the world and over 5,000 soldiers. You want more? You want us to attack Iran now? For their nuclear aspirations when you won't admit your own stockpile? That's insanity. 4. You do have great intel capabilities, we should know, you spy on us all the time! Yeah, it really is a no-brainer. Israel should mean no more or less to us than France. If the manipulation of my country continues, you'll continue to build hostility-and that is NOT anti-semitism.
