Chana, don't you know that a large amount of the support in the US Congress for Israel is either from Christian evangelicals who would be furious if one of their children were to marry a Jew or from many of those cowed by AIPAC. It wasn't too long ago that a former member of Congress told me that he had been told by fellow members of Congress that they wished that they had the courage to say NO, rather than "how high?" when AIPAC demanded that they jump. I truly believe that had our Congress had the courage to say NO to Israel's illegal and oppressive occupation of the Palestinian territories many more Israelis and Palestinians would be alive today.
