I think this is the elephant in the room: white supremacy. Ironic how American support for Israel against its own national interests can be attributed to a "complex set of factors" with little or no elaboration yet those who, albeit mistakenly, believe American Jews are the driving force behind US Foreign Policy toward the Israel-Palestinian conflict are motivated by anti-semitism.
