    '...civilized Europeans and it was beyond our wildest imaginationn that you would kill people en mass. We were very wrong. Now we know, and we have the big fellow waiting for you.' 'We.' I find that choice of term interesting. So...let's assume -- hypothetically, of course -- that the US and Israel come to some sort of murderous confrontation at some point in the future. You live in the US. Who's 'we'? Would 'we' be nuking Tel Aviv, or would 'we' be nuking New York? It's an important question. If Israel means that all Jews are now Israelis, then how can Jews simultaneously demand to be regarded as loyal citizens of some other place? If it does not mean that, then how can you arrogate to yourself the right to say 'we' with regard to Israel? Your personal claim to be part of Israel's national body is suspect -- and if it isn't, what does that imply about your simultaneous claim to be part of some other body? After all, the United States and Israel are not one and indivisible.
