    Oren says that bypartisan political support for Israel is important. And it almost always have been so for a reason: our two countries are allies sharing basic values and goals. There rarely were cases when our tactucal interests were different, but these problems had always been solved with the most cases Israel being on the correct side of an issue. For American Jews, I suppose, the Jewish State of Israel is not a some "foreign nation", it is their historical and spiritual homeland, safety and well-being of which is as much important for them as safety and well-being of the U.S., and talking about "treachery" is to show the total lack of understanding (or may be worse - indication of anti-Semitic feelings) of the issue. About religion: religious teachings of Judaism, just like that of Christianity, not always coinside with government laws. Do you sugest that all religious Christians in U.S. are traitors? You ask what the right course of action... The right course of action for every decent citizen is to support the Jewish State of Israel when she faces existential threat.
