growing up i always had to endure the ridiculous argument–equipped with distorted maps, of course–that the state of israel is so tiny and surrounded by dangerous, evil neighbors who want to “push all the jews into the sea.” john mccain has a new television ad about israel, but the tiny country featured in the ad is actually iran–a reference he uses to an obama statement on iran. this ad is so shocking. i mean, the entire ad is premised upon security for the zionist state. how is it that now if you run for president, and make the sick display of your undying support of israel known that you can run an ad that does not even link the foreign policy issue to u.s. interests at all? am i missing something here? here is the ad. judge for yourself.
