    I can not answer why so many Jews are so viscerally supportive of Israel, I can only tell you this one Jew, me, is. In my lifetime, my grandfather, a Hungarian Jew with roots going back hundreds of years in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was herded into a railroad and shipped to a labor camp where most of his friends were worked to death. Let me repeat, after being a contributing member, a full citizen, going back hundreds of years, a true Hungarian....suddenly by virtue of how he prayed to God, suddenly a non person. And no matter where you live, the only thing a Jew can know for certain is that no matter how unpleasantly Israel may conduct themselves, they will never put my grandfather in a railroad car and gas the rest of his family. So, excuse us if we love the country we live in, but keep a special little special spot for a country where we will always be safe.
