Why not spend your column inches on the lies, lawlessness, arrogance, and misdeeds of our current president instead of rehashing the past?"
Because W's mistakes are still oozing.

VAFB for years condemned the idea of mixing missile launches and oil drilling. They now changed their minds? Ok, why?

sbresident2 is Israel's b-word. The neo-con press is SO absent of the fact both Thatcher and Reagan were against pre-emptive strikes. And that American past presence near Iraq is more about keeping Israel collared more than about Iran's doubtful aggression.
Despite her support for Israel, and though Thatcher rejected the stridently pro-PLO stance of some members of her government, she believed Israel needed to trade land for peace, wishing in her memoirs that the “Israeli emphasis on the human rights of the Russian refuseniks was matched by proper appreciation of the plight of the landless and stateless Palestinians.” She also condemned Israel’s bombing of Osirak, Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor, in 1981. “[The Osirak attack] represents a grave breach of international law,” she said in an interview with London’s Jewish Chronicle in 1981. Israel’s bombing of another country could lead to “international anarchy.”
And Didn't Ronald Reagan condemn Israel in 1981 when Israel attacked Iraq?
I think Reagan said something about,
"....the inalienable sovereign right of Iraq, and all other States, especially the developing countries, to establish a program of technological and nuclear development."
In his STAR WARS Speech didn't Reagan say, 'We will never be the aggressor."?
I'm looking for the first few Reagan Republicans to condemn the said planned attack against Iran. Betcha not one has the guts to make a stand for fear of being called an
anti-something rather. Reagan and Thatcher have been betrayed. Let the cock crow three times.
Even General David Petraeus told the Armed Services Committee 3/17/'10:
'The enduring hostilities between Israel and some of its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to advance our interests in the AOR [area of operational responsibility]. Israeli-Palestinian tensions often flare into violence and large-scale armed confrontations. The conflict foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel. Arab anger over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of U.S. partnerships with governments and peoples in the AOR and weakens the legitimacy of moderate regimes in the Arab world. Meanwhile, al-Qaeda and other militant groups exploit that anger to mobilize support. The conflict also gives Iran influence in the Arab world through its clients, Lebanese Hizballah and Hamas."

Many Zionists were Jewish converts to evangelical
Christianity who did much to shape the development of popular evangelical thinking in these matters. It was this Protestant religious discourse that
marked the family backgrounds of many of the key members of the British
political elite responsible for formulating the Balfour Declaration.

And it seems Protestants are joining Catholics in the biblical legitimacy of Israel.

And there remains no explanation of how Mitt Romney became radicalized:

As Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird wrote in March 1969, these "developments were not in the United States' interests and should, if at all possible, be stopped."

I think there's something else going in Israel. Something along the lines of Jabotinsky's view> Israel not being Jews' spiritual homeland but as an offshoot or implant of Western civilization in the East. This worldview translated into a geo-strategic conception in which Zionism was to be permanently allied with European colonialism against all the Arabs in the eastern Mediterranean. Now that relationship is challenged with American Jews' lethargic view of Zionism, and the Reformed Church of Scotland re-thinking its advocacy of Zionism to the tune of the Catholic's view> that there is no modern Chosen people deserving of a monopoly of the Holy Land. Its along the lines when Party leader Yosef Lapid pitched his appeal to Jews from Western Europe as distinct from those from the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Russia. He welded his call for a "secular unity government" to an appeal to "westernism," saying that "if we let the east European ghetto and the north African ghetto take over, we lost within a terrible Levantine dunghill." Or Eli Yishai's controversial statement about Israel and 'white men'.
I don't think Israel's proclaimed Jewishness is simple to understand. How this Jewishness has taken form? Hertzl said not to think of Jews as a race. Oren said there's no official religion for Israel. How is this alleged Jewishness viewed by the non-Jew, the non-Zionist? The Muslim, an Israeli citizen or not, isn't an heir to Abraham, too?

OREN: ...... unlike Great Britain that has a national church, we don't have an official religion.
