    Why not come with statements like these?  

    It's not his "jewish heritage" but his religious zeal.   IN GENERAL, Orthodox (and everything else to the right in Judaism) believe that Israel and all of Israel is the promised land of the jews ordained by God.  

    Dobson and his religion believe that the US is the holy land of Christians ordained by God.

    I surmise that Lieberman's retarded, delusional support of the Iraq war has much to do with his religious beliefs.  

    And I dont care if you are a Christian, Muslim or Jew, I'll call out religious BS.  More people have been slaughtered in the name of God than for any other reason.  

    Lieberman and his close ties to AIPAC are highly suspect.

      The extreme Orthodox Jews are against the idea of a Jewish state because they believe that only the Messiah can bring about a Jewish state.  In 1948, they protested againt Israel's establishment.  They continue to undermine Israeli policy.  Lieberman is a Modern Orthodox Jew, the most liberal wing of Orthodoxy.  Like the American population as a whole, when the Iraq war broke out, Modern Orthodox Jews were split over the war.

      You may want to call out religious BS, but you who needs to be called out for your religious BS.
