In horseshoes and hand grenades close matters. In everything else, no go. I would like to add one more item to that list: the extermination of Jews.
How close must we come to the total destruction of the Jewish race again? Right now Israel is basically fighting for its life. Iran has made no bones about the fact that it would like to blow Israel off the map. The Palestinians want Israel to stop building outposts in what it, and most Muslim controlled countries believe to be Palestinian land. The US is now urging Israel to stop. By siding against Israel, we are only strengthening its enemies.
It looks like our leadership is starting to align itself with Muslim oriented countries. This is a bad turn of events for Israel which depends heavily on us for support, especially against all of the neighbors bent on its destruction.
This scenario is starting to look like something out of the 1940's. The history lesson aside, which route should we take?
