I would support anyone who didn't ask a stupid question like that. Everyone has multiple and complex loyalties: to countries, religion, ethnicity, political party, sports teams, family, musical groups, and on an on. They rarely conflict, and reconciling them is rarely an issue. Ginning up dramatic choices in a vacuum is meaningless, as what you would do would depend on all of the facts and circumstances at the time if forced to a choice. And even in the event of a conflict, most would not be forced to a choice and would do nothing at all. Ed Koch treated the whole question with humorous contempt when he said, "If the Israelis invade New York, he would certainly support the U.S., and that's probably the best answer. There are enough real questions out there to think about without wasting time or energy on the ones that create choices that don't have to be made in the real world.
