Israel needs to discover it is Semitic and get to know and connect with its cousins ... Arabs and Palestinians. For too long European Jews have failed to understand that they are Semites NOT Europeans. Us interests in the Middle East are hegemonic and Meddling... in Iran (note their puppet the Shah) Iraq ( no WMD, no connection to 9/11) etc etc. Israel cannot afford to be linked to US agendas. Mr Mendendez needs to focus on being an American with responsibilities as a Senator of the USA.
