Criticizing the Israeli government's actions, or criticizing the United States government for seemingly supporting Israel come what may, should not be confused with being a bigot. There are many Jewish people who do not support all actions of the Israeli government or all actions taken by the United States government in support of Israel.

It is no secret that the United States government has supplied Israel with more than just mere nuclear technology. It is no secret that Israel has from 150 to 300 nuclear weapons, estimated. The United States can never admit this, although it is true, because if the U.S. government admitted it, it would also be admitting that it violated the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Obviously, my point is that just because one criticizes the Israeli government does not mean that they are anti-semitic.

Cynthia McKinney, of all people, would probably do everything in her power to avoid even the appearance of prejudice and bigotry. She is not a dishonorable person.
