    The Jews seem to flock toward Democrat Presidents, so American Jews may not be as smart as Israelis. Israel sees Obama for what he is, an anti-semite, but why don't American Jews see him or the rest of the Democratic Party for their anti-semitism?

    A lot of them are one in the same, and travel back and forth between homes in Israel and the US.
    My husband's ex-boss was like that, and most of his friends, with whom we were casually acquainted.
    His wife and children (he was divorced) remained in Israel full time, though.

    How terrible. Influential Jews. They worked their butts off, paid their dues, all without an affirmative action program at that. They busted their tuchases off, educated their children, and made good in America, the old fashioned way. How uppity for them to have influence in American politics!

    They can completely run American politics, for all I care.
    They're just regular white guys, as far as I'm concerned, and white guys have run everything since time immemorial.
    They're usually pretty liberal, so I tend to like them being influential in politics and social issues.
    I'm glad, for instance, that there are more Jews than Protestants on the Supreme Court.

    Should they be influencing our foreign policy with "campaign donations", which you stated they are doing, however?
    That doesn't seem right.
    If a bunch of wealthy American Islamics contributed money to politicians' campaigns, would we support Palestine and nuke Israel?
    I'd like to think politicians are able to think for themselves, not just whore themselves out to the highest bidder. If that's the case, nobody anywhere is safe, including the jews.

    I thought you were a professional writer?

    Well, I'm a published writer.
    I publish pretty regularly, in fact, especially here lately. Short fiction.
    But I'm not "professional" in the sense that I make a living at it.
    The amount of money I've made off my writing is negligible.
    I work full time at another occupation.

    Basically, I think Israel is just as much at fault for the Palestine conflict as anyone else.
    Excuse me, Israel gets a pass? on what? they are constantly being condemned by the UN and international community for defending themselfs and being proactive about their security. They are surronded by enemies that want them driven into the Mediterranean.

    Well then, maybe they should move their "homeland" to somewhere safer.
    Such as... any place else in the entire world.

    At one point, the early Zionists considered Uganda. I get the feeling that that might have been less safe than even Palestine was. They got that feeling too, which is why they decided against it.
