    Patrick Henry is rolling over in his grave. George Washington joins him in the spinning. Imagine a country founded by a revolution expecting people under occupation - and a brutal one at that - to accept whatever abuse an occupying power wishes to inflict. Boggles my mind. I guarantee you if China - or Israel - rolled tanks down the streets of American cities and subjugated the American people in the vicious ways Israel has oppressed the Palestinians every American I know would be throwing rocks, building bombs, and engaging with Canadians and Mexicans on our borders for any weapons and fighters willing to help us throw off - again - the yoke of oppression. Strong people recoginze and support resistance. You'd think, given Jews' history, they would appreciate a people who don't lie down for their own murders.
