Israel is an friend . Every politician says so at every opportunity. Unless hypocrisy has become a new diplomatic tool , we need to support them consistently on issues like this. We can't be two faced. The Palestinians , on the other hand , are a shapeless ramble whose goal seems to be to commit atrocities on their neighbors, while arguing that the borders need to be changed to give them what they want. I see no reason for us to support them in any way.
