    You must be in denial. You can blast the "process" of lobbying and politicing all you want (which is surely ugly) but it's not the point. The point is that a nuclear Iran would be a lot more dangerous. For Israel its existential and fo the US (and all other Western states) a nuclear Islamic fundamentalist state which enables and supports terrorism is a disaster. If you are questioning whether Iran truly is trying to build nuclear bombs then maybe you have more information than I do. If you do please share. Before you bring up the question of Israel's alleged nuclear capability Israel is a democratic state with Western values and a history of having them for 40 years without incident. Iran is a different story with a fundamentalist regime that actively supports terrorists and openly encourages Israel's destruction. If you believe we should allow a regime like Iran to be in control of such destructive power then I would question either your intelligence or intentions.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
