"The closer you examine it, the clearer it is that neoconservatism, in large part, is simply about enabling the most irredentist elements in Israel and sustaining a permanent war against anyone or any country who disagrees with the Israeli right.

But America is not Israel. And once that distinction is made, much of the neoconservative ideology collapses." -- Andrew Michael Sullivan But America is not Israel. Or is it?

All roads lead to Rome it seems. Or is that Jerusalem.
