    I am getting increasingly confused about who is doing what to whom.. When the American Enterprise Institute neocons (yes Jane, they exist as individuals with a common cause, but not as a cabal) readied themselves in late 2000 to move into high offices in the US government, they stated that their policies would be quite different from those of the Clinton administration regarding Israel. It was clear to the neocons that Israel knew best what was the right path to its security, and didn't want or need any US intervention to arrive at a peaceful solution of the Palestinian problem. Results from this approach are quite clear. In any case, the "hands off" policy hardly suggests that Israel has been a US pawn, as many posters here have claimed. A better case can be made that the US has been out in front to protect Israel, through both military and political actions. The Iraq venture could serve as one example, with Iran another. Unfortunately, these actions will not be helpful.
