and our support of Isreal. So long as we are active allies to Isreal (not just lip-service ally), we will be subject to attacks. If U.S. would sit back and allow the Arab nations to destroy Isreal and run off the Jews, then they might be satisfied enough not to want to attack us. Even then, I understand that these Islam fundamentalists hate the West because of our "decadence", so they might feel justified in contininung to attack and kill us no matter what we do. But, this is all academic, cause you and I both know that U.S. will not abandon Isreal. Our choice is to support Isreal, and so we will continue to be attacked.
