I think a lot of Americans share my feelings that aside from preventing a nuclearized Iran, we shouldn't be bothering when our problems at home are so great. There is fatigue with Israel because it is perceived to be bringing some of its biggest problems on itself. No one over here -- the most integrated society on earth (and that integration is arguably our only legitimate source of pride these days) -- believes the myth that Israel is not bigoted. It is obvious to us that Israel has institutionalized a most vicious bigotry and is, in part, reaping its consequences. As a solution to an intractable problem, it is the last one that is going to fly with the international community, and certainly in America, which began addressing diversity in the 1600s and has never stopped. Israel is in denial.
