Jason, your psychobabble is senseless. You offer theory, but like most opinionated idiots, you offer no other solution than the rethink. Rethink what? If Israels international standing is in peril, and directly related to the US, then it will take years of sacrifice and additional compromise to reestablish itself. It is too bad Israel under its weak, timid leadership screwed up a golden opportunity to establish itself in the region and instill fear in the enemy. The enemy is no longer afraid and Israel lives in fear. The US administration played Israel like a cheap whore at a bachelor party. And continues to do so. Why? Because Israel has depended soley on the US for its existence. It's been screwed by every country in the world. So what are we American Jews to do? Simply this, support Israel. And make sure Israel has the tools and skills to detroy its enemy and stand up to the world and say "no more forever." Let's hope for a stronger more decisive leader emerges in Israel from this.
