    We live in a politically correct time. We live in a time where we feel for those who lost family in the holocaust. However, I must ask how does it help America become an honest broker vis-a-vis Palestinians if Rahm Emanuel's father was a right wing Israeli? How fair would he be to the Palestinians and just focused on the interestes of the Palestinians and Israelis? Of course, it's not about his religious background, but the political one. Imagine if instead of him there was Noam Chomsky who didn't think there should be an Israel. That wouldn't be good, either. Martin Indyk used to be in AIPAC and got place in government. It reinforces negative stereotypes about manipulation of power. And it makes it hard for the values of the American people to be represented when it comes to Israel. Americans in polls including most Jewish Americans want a different kind of policy that's fairer to the Pals. If Jonathon Ben Ami was there in power with Obama that might be okay.
