I'm not American and I agree with Mark. Mavada, what did you actually say in your comment to refute Mark's comment? 2 lines of dismissal and you expect people to take you seriously? Make a logical, reasoned argument and we might see your point. I think I understand why the Americans back Israel and have the same way of thinking, they both are people of common sense and reason who can't stand specious non-argument masqerading as informed comment.
