The Nexus of Religion and Foreign Policy Series-- Anti-Semitism and Anti-Americanism
“…By dint of power, purpose, and position, America and Israel are and will be the outsiders. Such nations are sometimes envied, more often feared, and always resented. They are never loved.” --from “Nations We Love to Hate: Israel, America, and the New Anti-Semitism,” by Josef Joffe
