    I can only imagine the isolation the author of this article lives in. What is this about US Jews "standing together" on Israel. Although Beinart's prescription for boycotting the settlers' goods was inane, most of his book hit the nail on the head--younger American Jews don't "support" Israel; they "support" the same principals they support everywhere else. At the universities where I lecture, old line Israel supporters are driven wild by the fact that most young American Jews honestly see two sides to the Israeli/Palestinian issue. Zionists love to throw terms at them like pro Palestinian or anti Israel, because they cannot bring themselves to realize that the ship has sailed. After Netanyahu's bullying of Obama in his last term and his chumminess with Adelson and Romney, ever larger numbers of younger Jews just don't want to "stand" for Israel.
