There are several reasons, but mostly it is religious. Evangelicals in the U.S. are even donating to Israel to rebuild the Temple Mount as we speak, even though they are Gentiles as much as they are Infidels--you would have to study the Bible to understand. And yes, there is a Jewish lobby in the U.S. with influence, not only via campaign contributions, but also control of some of the press and Hollywood.spender said:I just simply can not understand how almost all Americans don't question and even fully support Israel?
Why yo care about Israel so much? sometimes looks to me Americans care more about them than their own country USA!
Aside from not knowing how much of their tax dollars have been spent in U.S. aid to Israel, most Americans don't realize that Arafat had to refuse the last round of agreements. He would have been killed, and Jimmy Carter, who is almost the only U.S. leader who truly understands this and has credibility in the region will tell you that the Israeli offer was not fair.
Let's hope this will not be the case this time around. I would feel better if Carter was involved along with other countries though, and not Ms. Rice and the born-again President she works for.
