The US supports Israel - and it also gives massive financial and diplomatic support to the Palis directly and via UNRWA. Same for Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, etc. And don't forget the US investment in $ and lives in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. So is Washington "commenting on excesses" in those vile, failed societies? Is Bob Simon? I don't have a problem with criticizing Israel in fairness - but when thousands of Christians are being slaughtered and made to run for their lives throughout the Islamic Middle East, for Bob Simon and CBS to focus on Israel, where Christians are more secure than anywhere else in the region, smacks of bigotry and not journalistic evenhandedness. In this segment, 60 Minutes is anti-Israel propaganda and nothing else.
