A very important fellow named Aron U. Raskas (he must be important, as he says so himself) published an article in Ha'aretz outlining the minimum expected by American Jews of Israelis. It seems we let down our American brethren, as not enough Israelis died in the last war. Mr Raskas paid for a big war, and he claims he didn't get what he paid for. We didn't deliver the goods. Not enough of our sons came home in boxes.
Contrary to most American Jews, who insist that Israel has to give up all the territories yesterday and act with "compassion" to the Arabs of Palestine, the Hezbollah and others, Raskas expects a more militant Israel. He also has some interesting ideas about recent history and US positions on the Middle East:

Hey kids! Spend your summer at camp kill-a-Jew. Not exactly genocide, just drive-em-into-the-sea. Ha'aretz has this news about the program of a summer camp in Gaza:
"We teach the children the truth. How the Jews persecuted the prophets and tortured them. We stress that the Jews killed and slaughtered Arabs and Palestinians every chance they got. Most important, the children understand that the conflict with the Jews is not over land, but rather over religion. As long as Jews remain here, between the [Jordan] river and the sea, they will be our enemy and we will continue to pursue and kill them. When they leave we won't hurt them."
Well now we know what the conflict is about, we know what the solution must be, right? It's not anti-Semitism. We don't hate the Jews. We just teach our kids the truth - Jews have horns and tails and we have to kick them out of their homes. Who says anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism?

In recent years conspiracy theories about the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001 have become rather popular in anti-American circles all over the world, both among Moslems and in radical left scenes. A majority of people in Egypt, Syria and Morocco believe that these attacks have not been carried out by radical Moslems, but by the CIA or the Mossad. This is not very surprising unfortunately.
