Good post

Thanks.

And as a staunch Libertarian (Calvinist, not Objectivist), I will hasten to add that I am not an advocate of US military involvement in the Middle East and I am never an advocate of Foreign Aid. The Zionist Claim to Jewish Palestine (which is the entirety of greater Israel from the Jordan to the Mediterranean) may be 100% in the Legal Right... but they are not, Constitutionally, an American State.

But THAT said... the Zionist Claim is 100% in the Legal Right.

I would put it even simpler; Israel's government has the support of the majority of people living in present Israel. A government with popular support is a legitimate government; a government without it is not.

Good posts from the jsource always a nice resource. As a aside, with respect to your Calvinist background, I find that interesting. I think it's fair to say that the Puritans were Calvinists. As far as I'm concerned the Puritans led the way in extending tolerance to the Jews in 17th century England (largely having been exluded from England - with some exceptions - since Edward I expelled then in the 13th century) which would serve as a hallmark and model for the American colonies. I'm thinking particularly of Roger Williams and the Delaware Valley and Rhode Island colonies which he founded which further helped move (with all due respect to Hooker and Winthrop) the traditonal Puritan position further along on the issue of the separation of church and state.
