A very thoughtful reply...I haven't actually gotten to the content of the article itself since I stepped in the PC cowpie right off the bat!

You've made several of my points far better than I could have, starting with the traitors. I firmly believe that it is splitting hairs to discuss the circumstances of any of the traitors. They should have been executed the day after they were convicted. They certainly would have been in Israel. Treason betrays an entire nation, and kills untold numbers of innocents by the very act. Pollard, Ames, the Walkers should all be dead for the peril they put the United States of America in, who can really know the damage that they've done?

It is far easier and quicker to list the worst of American Jews than to try and list those that have made such great contributions, who have given us medical and scientific achievements beyond measure, who have enriched our culture and our way of life. Aaron Spelling just passed away. Smart Jewish kid who had nothing and built an empire. Ralph Lauren or the Marx Brothers are stories one would tell children to inspire them. Better yet, try to tell young parents today about life here in America before Dr. Jonas Salk or Dr. Albert Sabin. They probably would think you exaggerate, but I remember those days.

So, when it comes to the Defense Dept. story, which doesn't seem very credible to begin with, I doubt that there is any plans afoot to somehow put a check next to an American Jewish name. However, there are very credible reports that President Crazy Mo in Iran is planning a colour coded system for all the various infidels, and I believe that one. That nutcase is building a hotel for Allah's arrival as we speak!
Yesterday, I read a story on the FR News page that said the State Dept. has just authorized a massive visa program for Saudis. That may or may not be true, but it is a sinking feeling to realize that the brain trust at Foggy Bottom just might do such a thing. There was another article over the weekend re the Saudis offering scholarships to American flight schools for it's fine young men. O joy.

I admire and respect the Israelis tremendously, but not for the reasons that the "rapture" people do. I just remember watching the World at War series on TV in the 60's. My father would fill in the geo-politiical parts and some personal anecdotes about his time there as a young Merchant Marine.
Only six weeks before he died, the Six Day War began. My dad was the only person in the world who knew for a certainty that the Israelis would win. He had unshakable faith in their courage and their abilities. Unfortunately, they've had to fight every day since, and it's only getting worse. As I look at my words, I realize how petty it is to quibble about some rumour turned 3rd rate news when the whole of Gaza is in flames.

I will leave this discussion now, and please know that jumping to the defense of the Israelis is the right thing for me, and yes, I feel nothing but contempt for the America Jews who do not stand up for America or Israel. and who seek to impose a sort of selective elitism on a "chosen few" (pun) but won't fight for it.

p.s. I do apologize for lumping Pinch Sulzburger in with the rest of the American Hit Parade, that surely borders on the criminal!!

Regrettably not - Israel has actually executed only one person in its history, Adolf Eichmann, who planned large parts of the genocide of European Jewry. Run of the mill traitors, and even terrorists who've killed as many as dozens of people, get jail time. That fact is why 2 Israelis have been kidnapped (with one reported to have since been murdered) - because Israel is very soft in this regard.

Incorrect. Israel has the death penalty for only one crime: genocide. The only person executed in all of Israel's history was Adolph Eichmann. The maximum penalty for espionage or even treason is life in prison in Israel.
