    Unlike Mr. Shocken and the radical left wingers who authored this editorial, I am quite pleased if not gratified that our Prime Minister prefers to ally himself with fellow Jews as opposed to the leader of a foreign country. As wonderful as the United States is a nation-state and, for the moment, its president serves as de-facto leader of the world, the Prime Minister of Israel carries the weight of Jewish history on his shoulders. That history runs longer and deeper than the passing shade that is thus far the relative historical depth of the great American nation. I shudder to think of a Jewish leader who would prefer to align himself with a foreigner instead of his blood brothers. Actually, that is what the late Yitzchak Rabin did - and he's the one who first gave guns to the Palestinians - and look where it has gotten us. Stand strong, Mr. Netanyahu and ally yourself with your brothers and your common illustrious history.
