    The rhetoric I'm hearing from the right in Israel today is eroding any support I once had for Israel - which used to be pretty strong during my previous 3 kibbutz visits. Everyone has their opinions and I'm entiled to mine, just as the US is NOT entitled or required to support Israel on it's sprint down the wrong path. If Israel is the world's example of what being a Jew is - I don't want to have anything to do with being one anymore. Israelis are a tough people, but the waves of immigration must be bringing something bad into the mix. I won't be told by a group of people I don't know - that I NEED to support their rediculous hate-filled ambitions to conquer more than they need. It's time for Israeli's to show some respect and, God forbid - some humility for once. They have become a poster-child for "over-comphensation" in all regards. Enjoy being even more isolated than you are today Israel - you've earned it. God Help you - you're going to need it if you keep this up.
