"Thomas Friedman is one the world's foremost journalists and a New York Times columnist. Last week, he published an unusually harsh critique of the Israeli government over its policy on the Palestinian issue. Among other things, he likened Israel to a "spoiled child." One NYT reader responded with a letter charging that Israel is not only acting like a spoiled child, but one who ran away from home yet keeps using the family's credit card.
"Later on, Friedman was interviewed by Meet the Press on Israel's Channel 2. As disturbing as his article was, listening and watching him provoked truly deep concern. In the interview, he explained that the Israeli government's conduct on the Palestinian front increasingly erodes Israel's status in the US: Support for Israel is declining among US government circles, the general public, and the Jewish community, especially among young people.
"Friedman was a little agitated,
emotional, and at times even angry, yet it was clear how pained he is by the
current state of affairs. His words are doubly difficult because they were
uttered by a lover; a person who does not hide his deep, unalterable sympathy
for the State of Israel"His words should provoke great concern here. We need to
listen to Friedman closely; listen and change, as soon as possible." [http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3975716,00.html ]

Many Christians ascribe to a theology that teaches that the Jews have a divine right to a piece of real estate and thus, uncritically support the Israeli government's policies that privilege any Jew without any historical tie to the land at the expense of the indigenous Palestinians, and this is the fuel of much of today's Anti-Semitism and distrust of and anger at America.
The heretical religious fundamentalism espoused by the likes of John Hagee:
And the tedious "Left Behind" series of pap combined with a limp and fawning Corporate Media, have colluded to deceive good Christians and many Americans and has lead to over six decades of human rights abuses inflicted upon Palestinian Christians and Muslims which is what threatens Israel's and America's security the most!
Everywhere but in America the last 43 years of Israeli Occupation of Palestine is viewed as a USA-Israeli collaboration and the empire's claims of supporting democracy, freedom, equality and justice while enabling misery and death is blatant hypocrisy and nothing more than blowing idiot wind!
Khalid Sheikh Mohammad involvement in the terror upon America, "By his own account"stemmed from his violent disagreement with U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel." 
Abdulmutallab's Christmas Day 2009, attempt to blow up a plane was fueled by "his sympathies toward the Palestinians and anger over Israel's actions in Gaza." [Ibid]
Dr. Ilan Pappe, an Israeli born historian said:
"On March 10, 1948, eleven men had a meeting in the Red House headed by Ben Gurion. The eleven decided to expel one million Palestinians from historical Palestine. No minutes were taken, but many memoirs were written about that fateful meeting. A systematic ethnic cleansing of Palestine began and within seven months the Zionists managed to expel one half of all the Palestinian people from their villages and towns.
"The New York Times followed Israeli troops and reported the truth of the expulsion and separation of men and women, and of the many massacres. The world was well informed in 1948, but a year later not a trace was reported in the USA press or books. It was as if nothing ever happened.
"From March to October 1948 the USA State Department stated what was happening was a CRIME against humanity and ethnic cleansing. When ever one ethnic group expels another group they should be treated as War Criminals and the victims should be allowed to return. This is never mentioned in the USA about Palestine.
"Israel is so successful in their ethnic cleansing
because the world doesn't care! The ethnic cleansing continues via the
apartheid policies of the Israeli government and because of the denial of the
truth by the USA media.
