Unlike their Israeli counterparts, U.S. Jews have the luxury of living in a country without an existential threat, a situation they owe to Israeli technology, to a significant extent, as per George Gilder's 'The Israel Test', which the U.S. is in danger of failing. It would be more appropriate if the U.S. administration was as adamant towards Iran and its terrorist proxies, including Abbas, as it too often is towards Israel. But, unlike Israel which only has a harmless lobby, such as AIPAC to be demonised and ignored, Iran would unleash the deadly response of its terrorist proxies. The U.S. is failing because it operates on the smart-power principle that the U.S. must make peace with the enemy, at the expense of its friends. France's De Gaulle did this in 1967 after pulling out of Algeria, and decided that Arab interests trumped friends in Israel.
