> That's enough for this particular brand of extremist, who would like nothing better than for Israel and its supporters to be pushed into the sea(s). Of course, I'm of the line of thought that if you don't support Israel, and by that I *don't* mean support everything it does, then it you're deceived if you think you believe the Bible. Of course, those who make no pretense of believing the Bible have no problem with this. I would be surprised to learn that you don't believe the Bible. :-)

I don't support everything that Israel does, but the large majority of its decisions I do support. Esp. in comparison with the PLO and its followers. And yes...I do believe the Bible.

> Either she's been duped by the liberal portion of the media*(who perhaps know what policy they refer to, but don't want to say lest they lose readership/viewership/whatevership, so they remain vague), or she herself knows what policy, but doesn't want to make herself look bad in your eyes.

Well...I do live in Canada, we are not known for having the most conservative media to say the least. I've often felt that Canada - despite our claims of being America's "best friends" - are closer to Europe in our attitudes towards Americans. I was truly disgusted with some of my friends, who on Sept 11 said "yes, its sad, but the US deserved this." I only hope that Europe does help the US as they have said they will, but it remains to be seen if they will follow through.

> *I use this phrase because I'm guessing that not all portions are liberal. Of course, there may be some in the liberal section who feel the same way about Israel as you do. I don't know which portion Ellie's in, but I'm sure she supports Israel.

Thanks for the response and the greeting. As well, thanks gabby for the US State Dpt link, I'm looking it over right now.
