    How can the Americans claim to represent freedom, democracy and International Law and then reconcile those values with a theocracy that violates article 49 of the fourth Geneva Convention with its illegal settlements in occupied E.Jerusalem and the West Bank? They have to because the U.S. Congress and White House are still Israeli-occupied territory. They still got 'em by the balls politically. Just witness Biden's groveling--as Mr. Eldar points out--contrary to any rational U.S. interest. (And no, it gets tiresome to have to point out ahead of time in anticipation of the predictable ritual incantations to come, it is not "anti-semitic" or "self-hating" for me to point out that simple political reality.)
