Would you be happier if we would have let the Arabs wipe them out, and establish a soviet client state there?
No. If you take a look at my comment history on other threads, you may notice me giving the opinion that the Israelis made a big mistake in 1967 by not demolishing the mosque on the Temple Mount, and evicting all Muslims from Jerusalem (paying market compensation).
I would be quite happy if the Israelis decided to respond to the next rocket attack by making Gaza more closely resemble Dresden/1945 (hard to do -- Dresden actually looked good before the bombing).
What I dislike is feeling like the US Jewish community hates Republicans, conservatives, and Christians, and yet has the expectation that we watch Israel's back when TSHTF, meanwhile supporting the Dems who work against Israel.
