As the wife of a Palestinian, and a Social Scientist, I absolutely disagree with you. You describe the voices that yell the loudest, not the entire Jewish community. And, all encompassing statements like that lay the ground work for their, in many cases justifiable, claims of anti-Semitism. I suggest you read some of the following authors: Norman Finkelstein, Noam Chomsky, Wendy Pearlman, Mark Tessler, to name a few.... Then look into other institutions, like Michael Learner's Tikkun and Jewish Voice for Peace. The next generation of Jews in the US are not so supportive of the occupation because it conflicts with the morals they are taught. If we can move into the present, there are many opportunities. Last, if you look at the worst acts, they are not just Jewish orgs, but Christian Zionists. Significantly, the same tactics are being employed against proponents of Global Warming, suggesting the hand of the Christian Right.
