Sorry, Mona. If you put it to a straight up-or-down, democratic vote, most of the world's people would name Israel as "a terror-sponsoring gangster regime." Fair minded? No, but as we learned in grade school, fair is something that comes around once a year, for a week at a time, when your momma might finally win that blue ribbon for her pear preserves. I have watched for years in horror as the Beltway elites flushed one outpost of civilization after another down the Marxist sewer. I am afraid that is too late for Israel as a Jewish-nationalist state, but I still feel a responsibility to the Israeli people. They are smart, they share our values, and their government still allows them to possess assault rifles!
