Israel has turned the sympathy they garnered after World War II into this obsessive guilt trip sort of thing that is not only annoying but it's time to move on. The Jews weren't the only major group persecuted during World War II by the Nazis and yes, they lost a significant portion of their people but so did the Chinese, Russians, and Koreans. And yet they have moved on and forged ahead. The Holocaust wasn't simply about the Jews but all undesirable races like the Gypsies, the Slavs.

The United States should and would be better off if they did sever all ties with Israel. You know. 60 years is enough. And a lot of these recent attacks can be blamed on Israel. They have no intention of making peace. They haven't shown it in recent years.
Except we all know it won't happen because of all the economics ties both countries have.
