Two Allies, Two Perspectives

From Lawrence Uniglicht at the Israel Hasbara Committee

Two allies, tangibly and in spirit, due to divergent circumstances, in today’s world, exercise their democratic rights differently, Israel aggressively, America for the most part more passively. Additionally, each nation views the other’s leaders with different perspectives and degrees of relevance. Israelis, in general, view America as their most essential ally and are more comfortable with President Bush and his entourage of White House leaders than are the majority of Americans. Israelis ignore, for one, the Bush family’s cozy relationship with the Jew-despising Wahhabi madrassa financing Saudi royal family, focusing instead on verbal assurances given and proactive stands taken in support of their besieged nation.
