Israel and AIPAC-- The Hyper-Reactionary Right-Wing Is the Main Problem
Without stirring up a hornet's nest, here are a couple of interesting examples of how the right-wing has brought out the worst in Jews and In Israel. And to a large degree, liberal Jews (and liberals in general) are much more reasonable about Israel, and understanding of what harm Israel has done. Which is why blanket statements about Jews and Israelis are invariably wrong. Right-wingers have an extremely annoying and frustrating blind spot about Israel. Yes, Democratic politicians suck up to the Israel lobby, but aren't as jingoistic and religious about it. My impression is that mainstream Dems are much more balanced about Israel than conservatives, but that could just be my perspective. Overall, I would bet the support of Israel by US politicians is not representative of the general US public.
