    You wrote: "And it is through the common man that all legitimacy arises." The proposed boycott by the UCU of Israeli academics passed by a vote of 158 to 99 delegates. This is hardly a groundswell movement of the common man. By contrast, if you want to look at actual data of representative samples of a population, the Pew Research Center reported in a publication of 30 May 2007 that for "40 years, public opinion (in the U.S.) has consistently favored Israel over Palestinians" and that "has persisted throughout every war in the region." Gallup polling reported in March 2007 that Americans' sympathies in the Palestinian-Arab conflict have "continually sided with the Israelis. That remains the case today," and that support is in fact growing, according to Gallup; as Americans move out of the "no-preference" column in the polling they are moving into the pro-Israel column. Here's your common man, Nick. Now you can start spinning, in your usual fashion.
