Let's face something American Jewry opposed going to war in Iraq. The majority did. Israel is very hawk-like, war-like. The Old Testament/TANACH says "thou shalt not kill". Are the Israeli leaders in a position to preach morality to the Jews of America? Are the Jews of Israel so moral because they simply inhabit a certain part of the Earth. Does where someone live make them Adon or Elohim or Yahweh. Such concepts are surely midieval in nature, not modern Western notions of civilization. It's not part of the enlightenment. It doesn't matter if you are Jewish, Christian, or whatever if someone says the flock must be backward to be like him, and dictate to them, I would say, "Take a hike!".
