It has long been argued that a neutral policy for the Middle East would best serve American interests. Our appeals for balance, common sense and prudent restraint has invoked strong emotional responses from pro Zionist supporters. We have maintained a consistent condemnation for all acts of violence and terror. And our message has a clear focus on what benefits America and all her citizens. The current events of brutality and terror are completely out of control. Rationality is absent from the public debate. Sides are being drawn. And the entire world is watching. When will we, as Americans, face up to the harsh reality that Israel is no ally of our true national interests?
