    US President Barack Obama released a statement Tuesday, conveying the "warmest wishes" to Israel on its 66th Independence Day.

Then imagine that that movement grew in numbers to the point where it could elect its own bought-and-paid-for politicians to do its bidding. Who knows how much havoc it could wreak? When you think about it, Democrats are right: It really is a sort of terrorism. Am I awake? Youtube
