    Netanyahu (and many Israelis) are mistaken. We are not in a fight against you, it is the Jewish State which is in the middle of a fight against decency and honesty and humanity. It is you who are causing the "fight against Israel". It is because of your behavior, your arrogance, your apartheid laws, your land grabs and your cold blooded brutal treatment of the helpless and the hopeless that so many of your former friends and supporters (like me) now oppose you. You need to look at yourselves. It was your brutality towards the Lebanese and the Palestinians that created Hezboallah and Hamas. It is your behavior that has led to the huge loss of support for your country. What do we Americans get for the millions of dollars and other support our country gives you every day ? Think about this: what would we Americans lose if Israel was wiped off the map tomorrow ? And what would you lose ? We don't need you. You need us. If you want to survive you need to change.
