    that there's more free and open discussion of this issue in Israel than in the U.S.  Just read Haaretz and compare it to, say, the NY Times.

    The Likudnicks in this country have learned to play the anti-Semitism card very well by equating opposition to Israel with anti-Semitism.  That in conjunction with the Muslim fear card, and the power of AIPAC to punish those elected officials to dare cross them by using these cards, have contributed to the relative cone of silence on the entire issue of whether blind support of Israel is in the U.S. national interest.

    But it is rapidly approaching the point where the cone will burst.  The Likudnicks have abandoned the patina of "bi-partisanship" through their policies and their efforts to smear, libel and humiliate a Democratic, and black, president.  Especially should Obama you lose, and unless there is a change in Israel, you are going to see more and more Democrats, in and out of office, breaking with Israel.
