    Then, I would speak to your leaders and the people among you--Israeli, Palestinian, what have you--to stop turning to the rest of the world to side with you. As a Jew, I remember High Holy Day services where the Israeli consul would talk to us in shul about the need for us to support Israel against its incredible odds. During the holiest period of the Jewish calendar, when we should have been focused on repentance and our relationship with Hashem, we got a political sermon from a leading Israeli official telling us, basically, to help "fight the good fight." Israel turns to America and the Diaspora Jews, the Palestinians turn to the Europeans and the Islamic world, with each of you telling us to join your fight; then you blame us for what you encourage us to do. Blame yourselves! In my experience, many people--Americans, Europeans, even Arabs I have talked to--wish that the Israelis and Palestinians would just go away and leave us in the civilized world alone.
