As an American liberal, I have no fondness for Arabs, whose religion is inherently intolerant to modern democratic freedoms. However, being neither Christian nor Jew, I have no special fondness for Israelis, either. I see no reason why my country should have a special relationship with Israel. What I see in the way of both Israeli and Palestinian behavior does not inspire my approval. Instead of debating this point of view, I suggest that Israelis respond rationally to it, and its implications. No amount of self-righteous self pity or claims to God's special feelings for Jews will impress me, and you will find that this is a common point of view in America. I don't believe in God, and I observe that Israel has turned from being a victim to being a persecutor. Stop abusing Palestinians, and stop Israeli expansionism, or lose our backing. It's that simple.
