    Jeff, of course 'turning against Israel' will have a price and it'll be a big one. The US congress and the Executive are both thoroughly compromised by Zionists interests and in deed, fact and law, in a state of treason against an increasingly poor and repressed people. Do us all a favour though and don't mention "Israel's democracy and.....". Have you ever been to a Hollywood set and seen the shop-fronts which look impressive but from behind are empty but for a few support beams? That is as apt metaphor for a constitution-less country which, for example sees judicial decisions ignored by both the executive and government bureaucracies, armed forces etc. Xenophobia?, wow....if one had to pick idealistic notions Israel should not mention at least until last resort, you've done a grand job.
