I totally agree with the point that the Israeli people are not their government and shouldn't be condemned for their governments faults . I do not agree that it is the United States job to protect or defend Israel from anyone!
I am of Jewish heritage and have been to Israel- beautiful place, wonderful people and there are armed guards with guns at nearly every corner. I happened to leave for Israel the day after Bin Laden was killed. The Arab-Spring was occurring throughout the Middle East. My parents called to ask me if there were uprisings in the city. I never saw one. Their SWAT teams which stood outside Damascus gate in the old city made sure of that...
The people there do not need our help to live in harmony. Of course, there will be perpetual war over Israel's existence. The United States can never, ever fix that. War will never create true peace!
