      American Isolationists and Appease Peace sic Now

      It isn't enough to write a simple review of Philip Roth's "The Plot Against America."  I can't ignore the basis of realism of the premise and the parallels I see here in Israel.

      Yes, you can see it in the title of this post.Appease Peace sic Now is like the American isolationists who wanted to stay out of "Europe's war" at all costs.  Appease Peace sic Now is just like those who wanted to make deals with Hitler.  Appease Peace sic Now is like those who trusted Hitler.

      Yes, all of our "peace concessions" have brought us danger and terrorism and weakness.  Appease Peace sic Now endangers the very existence, the very survival of the State of Israel.

      I don't know if Philip Roth truly understands what he wrote.

      If you think that I'm exaggerating about Appease Peace sic Now, then read the book.
