I have been to Israel on two occassions. I have served with a NATO based American staff in Turkey and Germany. Various mideast issues were our routine business. In the beginning I was totally neutral. Learning the facts and details of the conflict which are not promulgated in America brought me to be a critic of Israel. Israels supporters always act as if injustice and inhumanity anywhere in history or anywhere in the world give them the green light to do as they please. One important factor for America is the fact that America supports Israel politically, financially, and militarily. This makes America partly responsible for Israels actions. Americas need to be involved. They need to be interested. They need to know what Israel is up to, since Americans will ultimately experience the fallout.
