BECAUSE, OF COURSE, THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ARE INSIGNIFICANT:Israel Supporters Divided on Cutting Military Aid to Egypt (Nathan Guttman, August 21, 2013, Forward)
The debate over whether the United States should continue military aid to Egypt is roiling Washington; pitting political idealists against realists; separating liberals, conservatives and neoconservatives -- and dividing supporters of Israel.
Israel and the lobby backing it in the United States have made clear that they oppose suspension of aid to Cairo, fearing that it would endanger the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty and undermine Egyptian forces that are cooperating with Israel.
And then you're required to pretend not to comprehend why democrats in the Middle East don't love us nor them.
