    As usual, this reply board is scattered with uni-voiced messages of ignorance by the Jews (I myself happen to be Jewish, so save your Anti-Jewish Anti-Holocaust comments), as usual? Open your eyes and stop being so self-righteous ignorant human beings. Surely there is a world that exists outside of Israel and without a doubt most of the people replying to this article have probably not even left the country let alone been to Europe or the US. The world is not Anti-Israel, Israel is Anti-World. As for the Holocaust, with all due respect of the spectrum, it happened in 1938. Get over it, it wasn't the first war or persecution by any means and by the looks of things it surely does not look like being the last so how about we put an end to this carte-blanche malarky everytime a Jewish/Israeli issue comes up in current affairs. Europe, North & South America and Asia don't use these petty tactics so let us follow in their lead and stop this carte-blanche suits-us-fine tactic.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
