    all that's being said here is that the Israeli leadership is going down the wrong road here.

    You think that those who now stand by Israel's side and encourage her militarism are somehow truer to her long term interests than those who speak out and urge a different route (and have been doing so for decades)

    Anyone here who has expressed reservations about such uncritical support are, to you, "Jew-haters"

    My friend, the real Jew haters are the ones who egg you on.  They always have been.  And when things go wrong and the escalating military conflict brings $6 gas, and terrorist outrages happen on American soil and the Rapture seems to pass them all by, rest assured that they will turn on you.

    We will hear no end then of how those crafty court jews led good George Bush astray - Wolfowitz, Warmsur, Addington, Perle, Feith, Kristol, Libby etc etc.

    Then you'll see who your real friends are.

    American Jews and the democratic party have stood together because they stood for human rights and an end to tyranny and racism.  If in order to defend the questionable policies of Likud/Kadima you go and stand with the Republicans - be warned.  They just want you around to blame you...and if you don't see that as one of the oldest and most anti-semitic games ever played, then you're not looking very closely.

    If you would stop playing the victim (NEWSFLASH: The Jews are not the only people with a righteous historical anger) and ask yourself what really is in the long term interests of Israel and its happiness, you would know this vicious cycle will never ensure it.
