A Jew

Not all American Jews are Zionists who support Israel's war-like policies. Do you know they kill over 10 Palesitians for every 1 dead Israeli, and they bulldozed over Rachel Corrie (an American activist), crushing her skull?

Nor did I claim so. Nevertheless, I think that direct actions against Israel would almost certainly decrease Obama's Jewish support - and rightfully so.

I would be more touched by your claim were it not for the fact that the Palestinians have, in most cases, been responsible for breaking each ceasefire.

It's easy to sympathize with an innocent man who gets shot for no reason. It's harder to sympathize with the man who gets shot after sending a molotov cocktail through his neighbors window. I see the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians as a larger version of that scenario.

I am genuinely sorry for Rachel Corrie's family, but one does not make oneself a human shield in a war zone and expect to come out unscathed. Corrie, in order to win the trust of the Palestinians she was supporting, participated in a mock trial in which she denounced her own government for its "crimes." Some might suggest that that is slightly traitorous. Furthermore, she was giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war and was not an innocent bystander.
