Jim, I think maybe you're not paying attention to what I wrote. Your reaction is way out of balance with what I've been saying. Same with your outrage at my saying that 1492 Spain may well have been the birthplace of modern antisemitism. It is impossible to have an attitude toward Israel that is fair and acceptable to all sides, since both the Israelis and the Palestinians are completely right and completely at odds with each other. No matter what you say, somebody is going to be able to call you a Jew-hater.
That being the case, I think it's best not to argue about it, and to realize that you cannot possibly have an attitude that completely fair and acceptable to all sides. There simply is no right answer to this question right now.
I really don't mean to cause offense - I just want to see people stop beating up on each other. I've said it in this and in other situations - there are no right answers, so all we do is try our best.
