    holding our Congress critters (Democrats included) accountable for their unquestioning and unreserved support of Israel. Barack and Michelle too, that lovely Black couple.

    You can't say that the USA doesn't have influence in these matters. We have one hell of a lot of influence, and we are purposely not using it.

    There is a widespread misperception that any opposition to Israeli policy is anti-Semitic. It's a misrepresentation that is promulgated and perpetuated by every right-wing outfit in the USA, it utterly pervades the US Congress on both sides of the isle, it's even here on DKos, and it is utterly false.

    •  Actually it is seen as anti Christian. (11+ / 0-)

      The fundamentalist faction of the republican party has not given up their belief that the second coming of christ depends on the Jews having control of biblical lands. There are certainly many more decades, and probably centuries of abuse and violence to be played out in the middle east....... and it will all be played out in god's name.

        amongst fundamentalist Christians, the MIC, and Zionist Jews that seems to hold inordinate sway in the US Congress. They all salivate whenever a few whacko Muslim Jihadis go on a rampage, seeing this as an excuse to ramp up hostilities and prepare for all-out warfare. Armagedddon, if you will.

        To them death is quite romantic
        They all wear bullet-proof vests
        Their profession is their religion
        Their sin is their lifelessness

        Paraphrasing Bob Dylan there.
