    Really?

    I'll bet not.
    I donít think we would agree on the consequences. The term wolves seem to indicate that Israel is a helpless pig when in reality they have the best equipped military in the region.

    Many people over estimate their capabilities because they (reportedly) have nukes.

    Do you?

    Given the size of the region, and their position in it, I donít see how nukes would even factor into their supremacy.

    What nation in the ME comes closest to matching their Air Force?

    Some quotes also from a ancient guy:

    Commerce with all nations, alliance with none, should be our motto.

    Peace and abstinence from European interferences are our objects, and so will continue while the present order of things in America remain uninterrupted.

    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.

    The difference is that random words from George Jefferson are not the Supreme Law of the Land, whereas that stupid ancient document I mentioned is.

    Furthermore, AIPAC is not an "entangling alliance." It is a group of Americans advocating a political position that they believe to be right. If you believe the government shouldn't support Israel, that's one thing. It's an entirely different matter to support the outlawing of a peaceful political group of Americans.

    Which American Muslim Lobbying group would you say isn't a "entangling alliance?"

    This one used to be:

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    Strange, I don't recall anyone claiming all these "constitutional rights" for the American German Bund. What's up with that? Did Hagee tell you different?

    Umm all of them. Any American should be able to form any peaceful group to advocate for any political belief they want. Period. It's called freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom to petition the government.

    AIPAC is not an arm of the Israeli government, any moreso than the local Panda Express is an arm of the Chinese government.
