Tomatoes, tomahtoes... can't really agree with the author. Zero '...expressed an unwavering support for Israel, helped assuage doubts about America’s commitment to Israeli security...'? I think not. He called for the two-state solution, with the Palestinians 'contiguously united' which, as everyone knows, would provide a vast area from which the Palestinians could launch their missiles to ALL parts of Israel. And if zero is truely supporting the Israeliis, why did he immediately pledge 500 million dollars to Palestinians when he got back? Why does the U.S. give ANY money to the Palestinians? Let's vote on THAT!
