    I'm one of the few Americans that actively seeks external news sources as often as I do internal. Without such an effort, it'd be difficult to have any idea of what 'yahu does or does not believe. Most Americans have no way to know his political history on a month-to-month basis. I've long suspected he was doing the Republican Party double-speak. They says they want everyone to have healthcare coverage WHILE they fight universal coverage and our Medicare program for seniors tooth and nail to protect the wealthy corporate lobbies that help them. If 'evil' ever fit a party policy....that would be it. From an outside view, it's trying to find sources to know who is doing what 'over there' but I've long suspected that the Palestinians (while not entirely innocent) are perhaps having their image embellished by Netanyahu and his people. I urge everyone to know that the seals clapping in the House yesterday do NOT represent popular opinion and is born STRICTLY out of this whole Christian-Jewish complex on the far right. That element in American politics sees every Arab as an extremist/terrorist Muslim and perhaps that's the tone that cheers "Bibi's" demonizing of Arabs. I feel compelled to apologize and I support my President's goal of a rational discourse to bring about a legitimate peace.
