    My ethnic background is Jewish and I am so proud of my family history. I am a great supporter of Israel and know in the bible that Israel is where we should be when it is time for the judgement. I back Israel 100%. We should support them and help them when they call on us but when you have a Muslim President do you expect him to support Israel?- Mariska in the USA I am an American. Unlike you I do not believe that this is the United States of America and Israel. I would expect that Muslim American consider America? interests and not be swayed by Islamic religious issues in what is a religious war. BTW, the Bible is not a legal document. American Jews should do the same. If they cannot they do not belong here. Israel has been a financial and political liability. How any American can support Israel in its land expropriation and displacement of the indigenous people from those lands is a moral embarrassment. Most Americans have no interest at all in Israel. If either disappeared to be one country or there are two countries would be irrelevant to the majority of Americans. I only care about America. At least Bob is not a Pollard.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
