have you watched max Blumenthal's video? have you heard how the good people of israel talk? have you seen the latest poll on hiring practices by Israel's workplaces? (today's haaretz). Sorry to break the news to you but israel is a profoundly racist, ethniocentric and patrochial state. I think they may have a lot in common with the extremem right wingnuts of the US but hardly with the majority of US citizens and voters. As time goes on, the rift can only get larger. You disagree which means, perhaps you are partial to neocon reasoning. But those of us who supported and the majority who voted for Obama hardly feel much attachment to apartheid state Israel is becoming (and unlike carter, I don't think it's confined to the territories). I hereby suggest that you, in fact, are out of step with the majority of americans on this issue. Perhaps you should consider what's really important to you - democratic values or narrow parochialism? your choice. I know I made mine.
