To paraphrase an old physics joke, Mr. Gitlin is not even wrong. For every Jewish neo-con who applauds and supports each move Israel makes to defend itself, there is a guily liberal who condemns the same action as aggression. The idea that American Jewry is in lockstep with the policies of any particular Israeli government is ridiculous. That's a straw man you set up, Mr. Gitlin. You're dovish and should say so; you'll find you're not alone among American Jews. This Jew, however, will reconsider his attitudes about Israel as soon as a quarter billion much closer individuals do theirs.
