    When does Israel grow up and decide to stand on its own feet, in order to finally become an adult? Without Oncle Sam and Aunt Aipac? Because how can uncle Sam and aunt Aipac know what's good for Israel? Sam and Aipac have different goals, not corresponding with the interests of the people of Israel. This guy named Martin Indyk, be suspicious and look at his history. He is far from being an angel wanting peace. He is and remains an American Zionist. Like Sam and Aipac, who favor wars and violence. To reach their own goals. Peace is within the reach of Israel. But for that purpose, Neocons are the wrong guys. And look for friends on this side of the Atlantic. Israel should look for new friends and sincere friends. With no interests in oil and power. But Israel needs to be honest for this purpose and not copy Sam and Aipac.
