    its almost priceless

    "For example, in a post titled "The Shifting Israel Debate," Andrew Sullivan makes a convincing argument that the debate is changing for the media, and a poll published Tuesday by Pew and picked up by our colleagues at The Fix appears to show that young Americans are increasingly skeptical of Israel's politics.

    But what evidence is there of a broader, permanant shift? Here's the short answer: Not much."
    Yeah sure.

    (RNS) American evangelicals have played a significant role in U.S. support for Israel; by some measures they are even more supportive than American Jews.

    But in the spring issue of Middle East Quarterly, David Brog, executive director of Christians United for Israel, wrote a piece titled “The End of Evangelical Support for Israel?” Evangelicals have shifted within the last decade, Brog wrote, and are no longer considered automatic supporters of Israel.

    Do you think that the Middle East would be better off without Christians or Jews?

    Sure, partisans always think the other party is stupid, nothing profound there.

    I have studied the history of ME relations, and that is the exact reason why I have become skeptical of an exclusively militaristic approach to terrorism. The US isn't the sole reason why radicalism exists, but it does play its role. A lot of it began with the installation of the Shah. Our continued support for the Shah stirred up lots of anger. So did our permanent bases in SA. Radicalism, just about anywhere, is born out of oppression. When we stop supporting oppressive policies and oppressive regimes then we will see the dissolution of terrorism and radicalism. Until then, we will continue to see new groups and new leaders pop up no matter how many we kill.
    Spot on brother!

    Actually, your the only one I know that has. And thankfully, it's not wishful thinking, though you wish it was.

    No, not necessarily, but it would be better off without US interference and imperialism.
