that anyone who doesn't live in Israel has no right to speak. This is dishonest for two reasons. First, the same right-wingers support organizations like AIPAC who lobby tirelessly to have the US send billions of dollars in aid, engage in military cooperation, and provide diplomatic support for Israel. If the "you don't live here, so butt out" rule applied, then all this support should also be terminated. Disband AIPAC, stop sending Bibi here, and I'll believe your "gotta live here to have a view" rule. Second, the same right-wingers also have sought to silence dissent within Israel itself, calling anyone who opposes the most right-wing policies "traitors." This name-calling is even directed at right-wing politicians when they don't obey the settlers in relation to every last inch of land. Ariel Sharon, Bibi Netanyahu, and others have been called "traitors" because they didn't simply hew the settlers' line. Finally, the whole notion that the right supports "if you don't live here, you must be silent" is a lot of garbage. Right-wingers have no problems with right-wing American Jews expressing their support for right-wing policies. It's all dishonesty. But, as Burston and others point out, the time is coming when American Jews and the US government will say, "genug"! Then we'll see the tides of political change in Israel. In the end, the right-wingers are a bunch of schnorrers, living off US charity...
