Let me reword one sentence in the final paragraph as "America must now decide whether it's for us or with us" I totally agree that the US must not be blindly with Israel. That is not enough. Grown up people know that criticism from friends sometimes is the real measure of friendship. Nor do I think that anyone can seriously claim that the US have ever had a one-sided pro-Palestinian stand. On the other hand I would not agree with saying, as G. Levy does, that "Israel" has no intention to allow the Palestinians to be free. This government most probably hasn't, that goes without saying. But we must also remember that the right is presently in power in Israel as a reaction by the public opinion to years of kassam rockets and voiced threats by major Palestinian leaders. It would be great sometimes being treated to more reassuring terms than just threats, so that with time hawks on both sides could be replaced with more dovish leaders.
