Have lived in the shadow of other people's colonial and neo-colonial empires and have a natural sympathy with each other. I've never cared much for Islam but that's not my business until they start flying planes at buildings where I live. I couldn't be happier that the Arabs are demanding and working for freedom. Sometimes I can't listen to accounts of Israeli oppression of Palestinians. I'm Puerto Rican and feel very strongly that the United States backs Israel's play entirely too much. There is no adjustment needed of our attitudes toward Israel and oppose any that is attempted. I suppose you have to be anti-Arab if you don't want to be classified as anti-semitic.
