As your ratings dwindled and my friends gave up on you, I defended you. Now, as a Jewish American, I am sorry I voted for you. America's only true ally in the Middle East is Israel, and you have turned your back on the State of Israel and the Jewish people. I couldn't be more disappointed in you. Israel must defend itself, as would the USA if we were under attack by people who wanted to wipe us off the face of the earth and YOU should be helping Israel not hampering Israel.
