Mr. Berkowitiz: The Arab world has accepted a Jewish state of Israel, within certain borders. It is you and the AIPAC lobby that has not accepted their acceptance, of that reality. You need a permanent state of enmity in order to carry out your objectives-more land expansion and a cover for justifying your refusal to enter into final status negotiations. There is not a politician in the US Congress, when considering any issue dealing with the Middle East, that would burp without clearing it first with AIPA, except perhaps the representative from Michigan who has shown some real pluck in confronting AIPAC. It's simple. If AIPAC doesnt get what it wants under the guise of- "heh, this is in the best intersts of the US" from a representative or senator, then you can be damn sure their opponent will win in the next election. Ask any of them in the halls of Congress, off the record of course.
