    in the type of people we know - it's likely that the ones I hang out with are more into activism and/or are generally politically interested, if not directly involved, whatever their occupation. Consequently, they're likely to have strong opinions on pretty much everything, including Israel, Jewish life/influence in America and what not. Many many whom I know are affiliated with one group or more, some are with AIPAC, some dead set against it. Passions all aflame, cancelling each other. That's probably how we can come to such different conclusions. So there you have it - the type of individuals we come across (selected no doubt through personal preferences) color much of our opinion. Needless to say many (not just some) of my best friends are lawyers (which means talkers..). Congratulations for your daughter's wedding. May her marriage last much longer than any of mine did (and that's the nicest thing I can say). Your son in law should however visit israel. He'll have fun. Both will.
