The real issue with ‘Israel’ is the chance to create a new middle east as the world economy proceeds through and beyond capitalism. The idea for a jewish state was always a fallacy, but it brought about the question of a larger ‘semitic context’ in a modern to future civilization. As suggested here several times a unified state (not dominated by jewish definitional myths) of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Gaza and Israel, would be a natural resolution of the complex situation there now. Jews in the US have no special status, why would the middle east be any different. Jews in the US are far far better off without such a false and prejudicial advantage.
