Israelis should remember one thing. American politics have gone far, far off the right wing loony cliff. What they see is an orgy of extreme right wing religiosity, but it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Israel or Iran. Domestically, we are dealing with massive trillion dollar scale corruption from the smallest village to the federal government. Our economic structure is crumbling due to a degree of Corruption and Incompetence beyond the comprehension of non-Americans. We are an uneducated people sliding father and farther into ignorance. The GOP made its abrupt right-wing shift when Newt focused attention on Crony Capitalism because he was POed at Mitty's trashing him in Iowa. In order to avert attention away from the massive corruption which Newt had turned towards the corruption, the super-wealthy re-ignited the Culture Wars which includes Israel as a minor pawn. The best analogy I can give is Arab governments of the 1950's etc. who stir up anti-semitism to avert the masses' attention from the real cause of their suffering. I am hoping that all real US-Israeli communications take place far off the radar of the lunatic politicos.
