Sometimes I wish…

1. That Americans would realize that Netanyahu is a political leader, not a religious one, and that he runs a political state, not a religious one;

2. That Netanyahu does not speak for all Jews;

3. That non-Israeli Jews have very little control over what Netanyahu does, says, or thinks;

4. There’s an election coming up in Israel soon. Let’s hope they vote in a majority party that doesn’t want a PM who’s a war-happy Cheney clone this time.

I admit that as an American Jew, I am conflicted about Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. I feel a two-state solution is best, but from here, I have no control over what happens in Israel.
