There's no mystery. The majority of the Americans are more pro-Israel than the Israelis themselves. To the traditional conservatives (the old GOP), Israel is America's only reliable ally in the Middle East (if not the world). To the heart-bleeding liberals, Israel is the only democracy in the area. To the Christian Right, it a miracle setting the stage to the return of Jesus to claim his Kingdom. To elected officials, criticising Israel - even urging Israel to change course - is suicidal, a kiss of political death. To the rest, nothing is worth the antisemetic label. Meeting payments on his/her first and second mortgage. at least three credit cards and credit union loans is the priority otherwise they cannot enjoy the freedom they all have. As such, the US and Israel are seen as one and the same, the new colonial power in the Mid-East. The solution does not lie in the US, but in the Middle East, where Arabs and Israelis must work together for peace despite the Americans.
