Are the only Muslims in the Middle East who can vote freely the ones living in Israel? Yes.
Does Hamas want to wipe Israel off the face of the earth? Yes.
Do the Israelis
make heroes out of those who kill Arabs? No.
Do the Arabs make heroes out of those who kill Jews? Yes
And on and on. So what do the Hawks propose? How do they believe it will all turn out in the end? Is it fair that Israel -- one of the tiniest, yet wealthiest and brainiest nations on earth -- should always be the bad guys despite doing so much good? No, of course not. But since when has history been fair?
Those who are convinced that President Obama favors the Palestinians over the Israelis; that he wants to dismember the Jewish state because of some deep-seated Muslim sympathies, should begin learning to think for themselves, and stop permitting their news and views to be run through the filter of political bias.
Barack Obama is not the best friend Israel ever had; that designation likely goes to Moses, Theodore Hertzl or Ben Gurion. Then too, he is far from being the worst enemy Israel ever had. No, at this point, he is like ibn Ezra's candle maker . . . a fellow who, regardless of good intentions, just can't get a break.
