Look I am as miffed about those illegal settlements and the next bleeding heart liberal, but for decades Israel was attacked over and over and made good faith efforts to trade land for peace, and where did it get them. I'm not trying to defend everything Israel does or our policy so lop sided in favor of Israel, all I ma saying is when you look at all the misery the jews have been through in recent and past centuries, why cant they be justified if a tiny sovereign state the size of new Jersey? is that really so much to ask?
