    There is something you and Alison and Gordon and Franklin et. al will never get. Politicians ultimately obey their their constituents. The only reason Aipac has any power is because Americans tend to support Israel. Do you know why? Aside from evangilicals and Jews, there is a simple reason they do. It is not because of any affinity for Jews; its not because, rightly or wrongly, that they view Israel as a western democracy; its not because they are ingorant and don't know that Israel has built illegal settlments and oppresses Palestinians.("If they only knew what we know, why don't they understand"); it's not because they are stupid and don't know that the US give Israel aid every year. It's because the harbor very negative attitudes to the Arab world based on their own observations. (Not because Israel has hypnotized them); based on what they read, see and hear, and it goes way beyond what is happening in Palestine. T Go ahead, demonize Israel and Jews all you want; make it your lives work if you want, but it will benefit you little - You're better off using your blog and websites to change attitudes to the Arab world. Pretty tall order but have at it.
