    Yossi and Yakov Sullivans do not represent even the minority of the US population attitude towards our enemies. They are even a minority among the US democratic party. Most Americans see an enemy bent on murdering us and our values, cutting heads off and bombing weddings and passover parties. Most Americans think about their personal income and healthcare, and don't worry about the nuking of Iran et al, that will be halftime entertainment during superbowl. America is defending itself, not Israel. Israel can take care of itself, we've given you plenty of money and weapons for that. Israel's interests coincide with ours for now. You also have His prophecies on your side which are unfolding as the enemy destroys itself. The Paris riots, Jordan, intifada, etc. are planned events financed by Saudis who are being spared for now due to realpolitik. We know about the money and the networking through mosques that facilitates Islamic terror. All will be dealt with in their own time. We too have a plan to remove this threat from the earth, I'd estimate over the next twenty years. Yossi and company can just watch and sip expresso while we do the dirty work that enables such philosophical tomfoolery. The Europeans, and even Arab elements are now starting to support our effort and will remain silent over the smouldering ashes we will leave behind. Yes we have a plan, the means to complete it, and the will. The more atrocities the enemy commits the more our will hardens and the more allies we gain. The era of retreat from terror and wait until they come after us again ended on 9-11. We will succeed NO MATTER WHAT it takes, there is no power on earth that can stop us, and it will be to Israel's benefit. COUNT ON IT.
