An essential question for Americans moving forward is why we continue to provide Israel with our unconditional support, worth over $3 billion per year in foreign aid, when the rest of the Western world has seen the light. This is not a political question as some politicians have framed it. Consider what James Baker, the most respected Republican foreign policy advisor, former Secretary of State for President George Bush, Sr., and foreign policy advisory for former Gov. Jeb Bush's presidential campaign, stated at a Jewish conference last week: Netanyahu is "out of sync" with his own country, Washington and the world. "Although Netanyahu and his right-and-center coalition may oppose a two-state solution, a land-for-peace approach has long been supported by a substantial portion of the Israeli body politic, by every American administration since 1967 — Republican and Democratic alike — and a vast majority of nations around the world."
