Hawks cast cloud on Israel's future

Re "Kerry's 'obsession' with Palestinian peace talks worries Israeli right" (sacbee.com, Jan. 20): Israel needs to learn that Ariel Sharon's statement "We have the U.S. Senate in our back pocket" has made many Americans angry. The detrimental influence of American Israel Public Affairs Committee has gone on for too long. The committee and the hawks in Israel have a delusion of re-establishing a virtual "Solomon's Empire," at the expense of both Palestinians and the United States. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the European Union won't cause Israel's downfall, but those hawks and the AIPAC just might.
