That is somewhat relative though as all it shows is that they like you more than the Palestinians a group that for the last 60 years have been sold to them as a bunch of terrorists.

See how you stack up against say Britain or Germany and I think you will find you are nothing more than a charity case to Americans.

I would also note that support for the Palestinians grows amongst Americans with education which should worry you as the trend is toward higher education world wide.

They should hate Israel. But that's just my opinion.

But,.. but,.. you're an American, your love of Israel is supposed to be at an all time high???

I think there's a great difference in sympathies between those who just follow the "US Political policy" without looking or caring, and those who have come to realise what Israel is doing to the world opinion of the US, not to mention the cost.

Many US taxpayers are learning that there is no valid reason why they should pander to "A Dog that bites the hand that feeds it".

Yea our tax money should be going elsewhere, like.... I don't know... restoring Tuition Assistance for our own freaking military? How the hell are you going to fund a foreign country's oppressive activities while screwing over your own servicemembers and veterans? 'Mericuh claim you support those who fight for your country, and then stab them in the back and throw them away when they don't need you anymore.

I couldn't agree more, but the fact is its some sort of government liberal disease. Britain pays the elderly a pittance and laughingly call it a state pension, immigrants are paid over 5 times the amount that pensioners receive, the Military is cut back to the bone, vets are treated like dog sh!te yet the Government can afford to send 19 million to president Zuma of South Africa, 17.5 million of which was spent on his palace, the government has sent billions in aid to Robert Mugabe, guess where that money ended up.

As for the Brits opinion of Israel, all of the Brits I know including myself are very anti Israel. They weep and wail over their treatment during WW2, but they are doing the very same thing to Palestinians.

I called the Israeli's bullies, and thats just what they are. One day I really hope and pray they get a bloody good hiding.

I'm not pissed off, far from it. Why would I be pissed off when you have shown very clearly the "You can't touch me" arrogance typical of Israeli's.

Even Tony Judt, a noted Israeli writer said the same.

We acknowledge, however reluctantly and privately, our mistakes and our shortcomings. And though we still harbor the occasional illusion about ourselves and our prospects, we are wise enough to recognize that these are indeed for the most part just that: illusions. In short, we are adults.
But the State of Israel remains curiously (and among Western-style democracies, uniquely) immature. The social transformations of the country – and its many economic achievements – have not brought the political wisdom that usually accompanies age. Seen from the outside, Israel still comports itself like an adolescent: consumed by a brittle confidence in its own uniqueness; certain that no one “understands” it and everyone is “against” it; full of wounded self-esteem, quick to take offense and quick to give it. Like many adolescents Israel is convinced – and makes a point of aggressively and repeatedly asserting – that it can do as it wishes, that its actions carry no consequences and that it is immortal.

It would be almost impossible to Bash Israel in a way that they did not thoroughly deserve. In which case it's not "Bashing" it's just "Facts".

All I can say is that if you go into the wider world outside of Israel and parts of the US, you are going to find a lot more of it, so you want to get used to it. It's a bit like Nazi bashing 1933- 1950s.
