    Shifting patterns...Have read an interesting article and watched maps about the GOP strongholds and states in the Reagan and Bush years and how this is falling because of the influx of new Americans in those places, many Hispanic, Asian or otherwise not WASP-GOP-diehards and so. The fall of big parts of the traditional white WASP middle class under the GOP robber baron's was helpfull too. The future looks even bleaker for traditional white GOP diehards in this respect. The ever changing face of America. (Those who think Israel can go on occupy the WB forever untill Pals give in should take a look at demographics as well in Israel, WB and Gaza.) Now if this is all true, midterm elections in the US should give interesting results confirming this trend (the day guts, guns and God bites the dust by courtesy of the new American suburban citizen living at the outskirts of traditional GOP strongholds?). It is possible. Why do I hear nothing about no tea parties anymore so sudden.

Not every Israel critic is an Israel hater

Israel’s critics run the gamut from Jew-haters to people who have the country’s best interests in mind. Lumping all together as anti-Semites is a big mistake.
