To Marcel: I do read most of your comments. You are way off base. While I personally don't believe in a 2state solution (Jordan is the real true Palestine), there is no other viable alternative. Time is agin Israel., with the Arabs continually arming and beefing up their armies.
Let's not get carried away Marcel with US bashing. Israel needs US, more than we need them. US Jews are feckless in the main..but there are tens of thousands of activists, for Israel (including moi), Haven't you noticed? We email, write, phone, our legislators continually. We join AIPAC and the ZOA and contribute hefty sums to Israel, purchase billions in bonds, etc.
What do you hope to achieve? Bush IS THE PRESIDENT, last time I looked. Would the Muslim Obama, or 2 faced Hilltary be better? Bush approved 30 billion in aid to Israel over 10 years (military credits). Get off your high horse Marcel..and get real. Israel needs all the help in can get from US (who else cares?). The Arabs have 300m faithful, moon G-d or no. The Muslim world, except for Turkey has a final Jihad earmarked for the little Jewish state, and we Diaspora Jews. In the UN Jewish hatred is rampent..only the US supports Israel consistently. Our (pro-Israeli) lobbies and policies are attacked viciously..with some results (see Carter, Fein, Buchanan, Scowcroft,
Gravis, CNN, PBS, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, college professors, CAIR, Baker-Hamilton, Pelosi, etc.).The real problem is our divisiveness and fragmentation and sheeplike support of the Democratic left). You could and should be doing something constructive to help our religious brethren in Israel. Don't undermine it' s sovereignty..it's all our necks. Al Qaeda has a fatwa on our heads, all of US. Farrakhan is waiting in the woodwork, along with his fellow cockroaches.
