    Mr. Burston, i could not be more proud, as a jew with very close israeli ties,about the sentiments you write about in your recent article. Unfortuntely, we in the U.S. also have a phenomenon whereby those who critique our own country are branded as unpatriotic. Those who feel that the US is not perfect and (god forbid) has actually had misguided or wrong policies.....are branded as un-american. similarly this philosophy dictates that only blind, unwaivering american support for israel, regardless of its policies, tactics or behavior.....is the only truly patriotic stance that an american can take. When did it become a sin to hold your goverment to the highest standards, and critique those actions that fall short or are blatantly amoral, unethical or illegal?i argue that the MOST patriotic thing a citizen can do is to hold his country accountable for its sins,not pretend they dont exist. stay in israel mr. burston, and know that some american jews continue to support your effort
