"zoning board", "internal workings" - it sounds like you, for one, have finally declared an eastern border for Israel. Please tell us all where it is, exactly! And if what you say is true, please change your pants. No nation, even today, does more for Israel than USA, yet you insult us with this "adverse party" crap. If USA is against you, you must have soiled your britches. On the other hand, if USA matters not and you want one against the world, go for it. If you feel your religion offers you the land of others' for your taking, and the right to refuse return or compensation for the lands you take from others, go for it. I'm sorry Israel. I do wish you well, but without compromise and reasonableness, you do not deserve well. Extremists who push you to reject compromise and bite the hand which has fed you VERY well are inviting you to a very dismal future.
