This is just a short follow-up on the last piece I posted. I thought there might be some interest in what has transpired since I first wrote. For those who are not interested, I apologize.
I usually refrain from using this site for personal reasons, but I am writing the following because I think it demonstrates a point I have made repeatedly; namely, that U.S. citizen Israel-Firsters will do most anything to shut up and damage people who criticize them or their country of first loyalty, Israel.
A recent reader’s comment asked if there is a kind of U.S. intervention that is appropriate. I take this to mean: “Is there a kind of U.S. intervention abroad that will help the United States and the people we are seeking to help?” The writer suggested a facility like Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty to broadcast our “ideas” to oppressed peoples. I think RFE/RL and the Voice of America are useful tools for telling foreigners about America, how it works, and its problems and successes, but they should not be used to encourage others to rebel against oppressive governments.
