Americans are badly informed about realities in the Middle East generally and Jewish Americans also have an extra level of hasbara on top to distort their perception. The result is they gaurantee US support for Israel no matter what Israel does. It's a disaster fro Zionism, because it prevents Israel hearing what the rest of the world is telling that, that it has to stop oppressing the Palestinians. The last hope of extreme Zionists was that democracy in the Middle east would remove anti-Israel dictators and replace them withe democracies prepared to accept Israel's West Bank land grab, Instead what we are seeing with the Arab Spring is that the Arab peoples are even less keen on israel than their dictators were. Which probably, unless Israel comes to its senses, means war. And Israel can't survive a war against the peoples of the Middle east forever.
