Well, I have to say first that my statement is not going to be supportive of the Jewish community at large, so for that I apologize, but it still
If this new bill passes, it is noted as being one that will cause a rift in the bond of American Jews with Isreal. There are many Jews in our
government and in power at large in the US. So, if this passes then there is essentially a division of the bond between the US and Israel.
So, my sentiment, although harsh, is that I cant see the downside for our country at large to have our bond with Israel damaged. I mean, Israel is
afterall the country trying to get us into more hot water in the Middle East and trying to push us to a potential global war. The stance taken
against Iran by Israel is only backed by the US because of our ties there.
Sever those and we might see a wide sweeping change in how the world at large sees us as a nation. We might also mend a few fences between our
neighbors around the world.
So, while I understand that this is damaging to those of the Jewish faith, there is potentially a greater good here that should be explored before
just begging that little country to "take me back".
