There are not a lot of things that extreme leftists and extreme rightists agree upon in America. One of the things that they do agree upon whole heartedly is their unquestioning support of Israel. This in itself is very suspicious, especially when Israel is not an issue that is foremost in the minds of most American citizens. Even the politicians that are not considered "pro-Israel" such as Ron Paul and Obama still bend a knee to Israel and pay lip service when required. There is no opposition to Israel in the world of American politics. How can this be? There is opposition to everything else, from law and order to immigration, to national defense, to abortion, to taxes, to gay rights, and on and on. Every American politician (with the possible exception of Ron Paul) wants to throw large bundles of unmarked American tax payer money at Israel. They want to fight Israel's wars. They want to buy, bribe, and coerce international support for Israel. They want to help Israel avoid peace and expand the settlements. There are none that are in opposition to Israel. If this fact does not alarm American citizens then they can't complain when the results of this policy come home to them.
