It just isn't as simple to me as "blaming the jews" or the Palestinians not cooperating or complying with resolutions (as though these hundreds of thousands of refugees have EVER had a meaningful form of representation in the international community or have ever achieved a workable solidarity even with one another). There's plenty of blame to go around for the lack of a sovereign Palestinian state; Israel happens to be pretty high on the list because of the extremeness of its ideological isolation from the international community.

I'm not sure what you mean, Davepat, by "As for the US vetoing sanctions - has NEVER happened." It's a plain fact that the United States has vetoed countless resolutions condemning Israel's human rights abuses beginning in the 1970s. Here's a concise list of these resolutions (you can find them all on the UN website along with how each country voted): http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article2000.html
This is just a fact, I really don't understand how one could argue otherwise.

I grew up in heavily Jewish community in Los Angeles. Most of my friends are Jewish. Though some support Israel in varying degrees, absolutely none of them "dream" of returning to Israel, a country which would force them to serve in the military for several years and in which the opportunity to pursue a good job and so on is not as great as it is in the United States.

Additionally, traveling through Israel, I learned very quickly that Israelis identify far more closely with the State of Israel rather than with Judaism, per se. Every Israeli that I met was very skeptical of an American Jew's identification with Israel merely on the basis of religion. I get the impression that your views of Israel and the Jewish diaspora are more informed by the Old Testament (i.e. for 2000 years Jews have yearned to return...) than by the desperate and complicated conflict experienced by Jews both in and out of Israel today.
