In defending Israel, the USA has cast doubt on it's integrity. Human rights abuses against Arabs are business as usual for Israel. Inflamatory racist statements emit from Israel's foreign minister and even from some settlement rabbis. The human rights abuses are documented. The Internet has allowed the world to witness Israeli transgressions. It is nothing less than anti-Arab sentiments that have permeated the Israeli culture. Support of Israel confers the same image on the USA when the USA should be advancing the cause of human rights for all. It is time for the USA to reevaluate it's relationship with a country that places such a high value on it's own alf interest at a deprecating cost to it's ally and it's neighbors. Regional peace is a lost cause with a nation that prizes the demands of zealots at a debilitating cost to it's future as a responsible partner.
