Maybe we need a long public conversation about Israel between @IlhanMN@twitter.com & @RepSchneider@twitter.com. Instead we just have groups talking past each other, believing whatever they want, mischaracterizing each other's positions, and reality for most being defined by audience access.

@wjmaggos

or maybe it's an insoluble conflict

two people want the same place

@amerika

I think that's what a public conversation would prove, perhaps eliminating the justification for massive US support for them.

@wjmaggos

We support Israel for many reasons:

1. AIPAC/wealthy Jewish voters
2. Need for ally in the region
3. If we go away, Iran launches WMDs at Israel, and WWIII is a go

I am more of a "let the world solve its own problems" guy at heart, but if adhered to dogmatically, this policy would result in war breaking out worldwide overnight.

@amerika @wjmaggos Israel getting WMD'd would be a good thing, but Iran isn't going to do that

@wjmaggos

I view the present situation as collateral damage from:

1. Roman occupation
2. The Stone gang
3. Jihad
