    The most flagrant act was when the right wing Executive of the supposedly wall to wall Conference of Presidents allied openly with sharansky to oppose the division of Jerusalem proposed by Clinton at camp David -- ALL Israeli goverments like their Diaspora relatives to keep pressure on from the right. what's needed is a top level center-left Israel mission to America to not only give zionist license to Jewish freedom of expression and conscience but to also give nuance and texture to the conversations that take place between Jew and Jew and Jews and their non-Jewish interlocutors. Also be it known that every time a Palin or a Huckabbee or a Beck defends settlements and the occupation scores of Jews are given chizuk in their pro-peace/two state beliefs. Note to the Israeli Right (and American Republican big rollers): Your christian right chevre love the Jewish people as a theological abstraction but labels a disproportionate number of Jews as its real enemies. There is a real sociological and political reason why only one Republican Jewish congressman sits in Washington - and the tea party is constantly on his case as being suspect.
