The more you all in Israel give in to right wing paranoia and intolerance, the smaller your circle of allies will become. I know my history, so I can understand the roots of the real fear many of you feel. But responding by turning to the pseudo-strength of right-wing intolerance will, eventually, backfire hugely. Your national embrace of George W. Bush, one of the worst American presidents ever, the increasingly ridiculous charges of Anti-Semitism against anyone (even Jews!) in the US who questions AIPAC's line, and, I fear, your increasing embrace of anti-democratic ideas will lead to a very bad place. I sometimes wonder how different the Israeli national psyche would be if, instead of focusing so much the horrors of the shoah, everyone remembered every day that Hitler LOST, that he committed suicide in a bunker as his capitol was being destroyed. Would that help bring a saner, healthier political perspective to Israel? Anyways folks, J-Street is your friend, not your enemy.
