Why is it then that Israel is admired for and allowed to not only protect its borders but every action that promotes jewish majorities? It is a nationalistic and tribal nation living on ideas of the past in every possible way, yet unlike any long lasting independent tribal nation, they depend on a vast public/private economic welfare from overseas. Without American support or aid, modern Israel would be as viable as an independent Basque nation.

If we support Israel being sovereign and nationalistic why is it so taboo for Americans to do the same within our own country!?
