The U.S. must show everybody that it is Committed to Peace. The U.S. visit of Israel's CoS, Maj. Gen. Ganz does NOT provide proof of that. The U.S. continues to provide financial and military support to the ILLEGAL Occupation of Palestine. That too leads many to believe that the U.S. continues to view Israel as ITS WEDGE in the Middle East -- ITS "Separation Barrier" between Egypt on the West and Lebanon, Syria and Iraq on the East. Israel's role is also to protect the (Oil producing) ""Democracies"" of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, The Emirates, and Kuwait from achieving REAL Democracy.
