      It's easy to have a participatory democracy when you have ethnically cleansed all those who might disagree with you (who were in fact the majority of the population). Somehow I don't see that as very worthy of the term democracy nor anything to be proud of. Do you?

IOW, I would like to see them act in their own REAL interests. But would you, really? Without their political actions based on religious delusion, America would stop supporting Israel.

      I could be wrong, but it is my understanding that Israel has a very liberal, democratic and progressive form of government. I would suspect there is less superstition and religious delusion in Israel than in Kansas and Alabama. I should think that, in the long run, the interests of that nation and the interests of the USA and other advanced Western nations are aligned in a sense that transcends current politics and economics.
