Dear fyi,Backing Israel was an ideological frgieon policy decision made by the US, which it is sincerely regretting today. I am positive that Obama would cut them off right now if he could, but a) the US is essentially being held hostage by Israel, and b) the ideologues in DC would lynch Obama should he cut Israel off.

Ginsbergīs best poem ever
Well, the dude had also some other & fantastic stuff (Howl, Is About, Crossing Nation, and so on). The thing is -at least for me- that the here mentioned text condenses in an extremely virtuous way the feelings & mood from his age; thatīs something to be thanked. I personally appreciate those words as a testimony of KKK-Martin Luther King Jr; unbelievable and savage but still topical subject.
Anyway, is a bleak/ironic/lascivious text to celebrate.
