Yael Steinberg’s bias is quite apparent.
It is difficult for me to comprehend why so many Jewish Americans are insistent on their beliefs that Israel wants peace, when the world as a community sees things differently. Saying “Israel has no partner for peace” is absurd. Take a look at who receives the most foreign aid from the US. As an American, first generation, Jewish Americans need to understand that many of us are fed up of carrying Israel’s burden. Most of us have no affinity to the land, and as an American one should want the best for their country before others, including allies. It seems to me that many of these Jewish Americans are willing to see the image of America suffer at the expense of a country that acts like it is always the victim and never the bully. My suggestion to those Jewish Americans out there who vow their love for Israel and believe they are continually pursuing peace is to move to Israel. Don’t make Americans pay for the consequences of the Israeli/Arab/Palestinian inability to come to a consensus.
As a side note, “The Jewish Star symbolizes resistance to the campaign of hate.” No, just like a cross or crescent moon, it simply provokes it, insinuating that my God’s dick is bigger than yours.
