    Like most simpletons, you ignore the realities of the world. The US would justifiably restrict my rights if it was surrounded by hostile, violent peoples who have tried to destroy it since its modern recreation, and still subscribe to that edict. Immediately after one single bombing raid at Pearl Harbor, the US interned its Japanese-Americans in guarded camps for the 3-1/2 year duration of WWII. What would the US do if it had missiles lobbed into its country daily by its neighbors, fought multiple wars with them, and its neighbors continually armed themselves while calling for the US's destruction? Israel is remarkably tolerant given the dilemma imposed upon it by the Arabs. Pollak is a fool, and to the extent he is aiding and abetting an enemy, is in my view an unwitting traitor to his nation. He thinks he's some kind of modern hero, but he's really just a foolish misfit.
