I spent Sunday with my wife's non-religious relatives. The conversation found its way to Israel. I was even shocked by the anti-Israel sentiment that has taken over the liberal non-religious Jews. Forty years ago the parents of these people were all rooting for Israel and understood what the map on the post says about their precarious position. These people didn't get this at all. They see Israel as this world empire with oceans for natural boundaries, America essentially, who persecutes the poor minorities. I need to detox.
And just think, that's without a Hamas takeover of the West Bank with rocket launches from Judea and Samaria.
I've had this same experience, too. It's seems a lot of people are experiencing this same phenomenon. It's a plague.
