I support Israel unequivocally. Unlike many Christians, it's not because I believe in any end times significance of the political state of Israel. I support them as the lone outpost of democracy and freedom in a part of the world that desperately needs an outpost of democracy and freedom.
Israel is a friend of America who shares a common enemy with her, and that's enough for me to sign off on as many things-that-go-boom as Israel wants from our glorious military-industrial complex.
At the same time I react negatively to my country being anyone's female lapdog. And the more I read Pat Buchanan on the subject in recent years, the harder I find it to refute his contention that we are in fact wearing a tiny little sweater with our name embroidered in Hebrew.
