If the desire is to make life easier by throwing Israel under the bus in favor of the more numerous (millions and millions and millions) Arabs and Islamic believers why not come out and say it without all this indirect psychological malarky? Arabs and Islamic communities harbor many perceptions which, alas, while shared by some posters in Talkback, are delusional: that America is not only "favors" Israel, but is run by Jewish Zionist cabals; that Israeli Jews seek to destroy Al Asqa mosque, that the Jews cause AIDS and distribute hormone-laced chewing gum to cause Arabic men to be sterile and Arabic women to be promiscuous. If foreign policy needs to be run to assuage all Arab feelings, perceptions, and wounded emotions America will have to give up more allies than Israel and, ultimately, roll back history to the days of Arab glory. Good luck.
