I'm not taking offense at ...

..."everything individuals say about your [my] tribe". I am absolutely against our foreign policy in the middle east (and elsewhere for that matter). Believe me, I try to wake people I know up regardless of whether or not they're Jewish. To be honest, I think a lot of world events are shaped by US foreign policy (the US replaced Mohammad Mosaddegh with the Shah). And I think control of natural resources (through a strategic base in the middle East) is the probably the real reason the US supports Israel the way it does. By no means am I saying Israel is a bunch of angels though. They're most certainly not. And not that I know the real specifics but I'd guess they're probably just as bad - if not worse - than the governments of the countries around them.

Having said all of the above, I have to wonder if your focus is in the right place. I get the feeling (though I'm certainly open to being corrected if I'm wrong) that you are more focused on Jews. I don't think the deeper issues are about "Jews vs [fill in group here]" or anything like that. I think it's about the so-called "power elite" wanting to control the populations all around the world and doing whatever they need to do. And, actually, one of their "tricks" is to get groups to fight against each other (black vs white, Jew vs Muslim, etc) which keeps the focus off of them. I could be wrong but I think it's worth some introspection to see if you are falling into that trap. I do want to mention, however, that I don't mean any of this in a rude way. To your credit, I can tell that you are passionate and I do believe you are speaking out based on your conscience (which I'd always respect).
