    Its a blunt force persuasion tactic, the over use of which is blunting its effectiveness.

    nice for you to be so cavalier from your keyboard..
    Enemies who know full well Israel will turn their nations to glass if they even think they are about to be attacked.

    If I praise Israel will christians give me booze too?

    Did Cruz use those terms you quoted?

    Where did you read about this religious agenda? Do you have a link?

    Americans can both believe that Israel has the right to exist as a nation...and believe that Israel has not always acted with America's best interest in mind.

    Americans can discern that Israel has a right to defend its self...and see some of Israel's actions as nothing to do with their defense.

    Americans have the ability to separate the actions of the Israeli government from the Jewish people.

    No government...is 100% infallible. No government in the history of the world has been 100% infallible.

    Anyone who believes Israel is 100% infallible and exempt from any critical analysis is an idiot.

    And too many people are spending too much time analyzing Israel when the problems lie elsewhere.

    I would not support anything I did not understand...Nor would I ask for anyone to support Israel on faith alone.
