I totally agree with Dr. Pipes, the leadership in Israel is to blame for the strategies Israel should be using, but seems to have a mind block. It is the same in America. It looks as if Israel and America are neighbors on the same coin.

It is also the voters who are either uniformed about the actual problems that exist, or their unwillingness to stand for freedoms they have had in the past, and would be giving up under today's leaders.

It is Amazing how many leaders in Israel and America have taken up appeasement tones to cooperate with their enemies, and giving up land to do it. They are giving their enemies the power to control their lives and prosperity.

Now we see a nuclear Armed Iran in the distance, and the US says, negotiate. Negotiate with what, a nation who will use nuclear weapons on everyone! What do we have to offer so they won't use them? Do we pay them off? This is crazy! They won't listen to us say to stop enriching uranium. Americans totally support Israel, but America should stay out of her strategies. What is good for the goose is not good for the gander. What does it take to wake up the people and the politicians in both countries? I am baffled!

Israel must block out those who would continue to stop her from doing what is right politically, and militarily. The leftists in both America and Israel are destroying our freedoms!
