The article focuses on U.S. Jews' stance regarding the Israeli government's attitude towards Palestinians.

They want a solution to the conflict that will suit both communities. While Israelis themselves have been arguing about the way ahead in the aftermath of the war in Lebanon, there has been nothing but firm support for the Jewish state in the U.S. media.
