Sir, You wrote, "General American and European sentiment reflects this position, as well." How do you know? While I can't speak for the Europeans, I am an American, live in the U.S., and my experience says otherwise. So, after the Cast Lead Operation, you no longer support Israel. Pity. You should take a closer look into the possibility that they were, in moost instances, used as human shields. Also, you should seriously ponder the past and present massacres of the Jews in the Mideast, as well. As far as your statement concerning the fact that Jerusalem will never be the capital of Israel, I would be glad to take that bet. Just wait and see.
