Ruthie is on target when she reminds the Republicans that they have to focus their attacks on Obama and not on each other!
Ruthie's basic point, focus your energies properly, is relevant to all of us and especially to the State of Israel. Who and what are our enemies? And another point that is important for us to remember, which the United States doesn't have to worry about is that Israel's enemies aim to destroy us.
Simply put is that:
Just like when nobody cared that Jews were being exterminated/slaughtered/murdered by the Nazis only a couple of generations ago, nobody today cares that the Pseudostinians aka Palestinians sic aim to replace/destroy us. Terrorism is a tool, a double-edged sword. It kills and it lowers morale.
Many of these points are brought up in this interview I did recently.
