    I like when she does these town halls. She’s really good at communicating with average people.

    Would one of you Americans explain to me how you are allowed to have people fund Israeli, Jewish-only construction in E. Jerusalem in violation of international law and your own stated policies? Why is there no prohibition on this. I don’t want to be snarky but it kind of makes your whole policy on settlements seem hypocritical when people who fund settlements in Israel give huge amounts of money to political campaigns. Didn’t your Jack Abramoff do that too and also provide weapons to extremist settlers? I don’t understand why this is legal in US law.

    I think your stated settlement policy a bullocks. Your politicians want to sound reasonable by saying they want settlements to stop and want two states but then they allow every policy to undermine that.

    @Seamus – it’s just poltics, we say one thing and do another😉

    If you read Walt and Mearsheimer they explain all the exceptions and special circumstances that allow people and groups to do pretty much whatever they want with respect to Israel even though the same rules don’t apply to the same actions with respect to other countries. That’s why it’s called the “special relationship.”
