    The biased support of israel by the US has been going on for over 50 years. This support has caused a sense of bitter resentment and injustice in the Arab and even Muslim world. The authors of this article conveniently skip over the fact that this longstanding US policy in favor of Israel has had a significant influence in the emergence of extremists in the Arab/Muslim world. Nobody is saying that these extremists will all disappear the day there is a just peace between Israel and the Palestinians, but peace will go a long way in undoing US's longstanding mistaken policies in this conflict. The authors of this article also conveniently skip over the fact that this biased support of Israel by the US is to large extent a result the Jewish lobby/money. Anyone who denies that the biased support of Israel by the US as well as the excessive power of the Jewish lobby $$ is not a liability for the US - Arab/Muslim relation is a self serving Zionist and not a friend of the US.
