    Exactly, please turn the lights on. You and MichaelF. Israel was not on the front lines of the war against terrorism. It is convinient to say but not true. It is convinient to claim that Hamas and Hezzbolah are the same but Lebanon proved it is far from truth. It is convinient to see Arabs all the same but Iraq proved they are not. Israel was and is fighting its own wars. Wars against its enemies and yet, every time we see Israeli officials here pressing for US support. And not just dollars. Benjamin N. is here monthly calling for bombing Iran. Who will do that? US, of course. Israel could have been against war in Iraq but it was silent and by doing so it directly supported it. And who was screaming about Saddam's payments to suicide bombers? Common, this is a bunch of regular rethoric that makes no sense: Americans die fighting AlQaeda, fighting all these Arab terrorists who for whatever reasons want to kill us. Israel fights specific group that has nothing to do with world terrorism

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
