You mix up two things. A technical discussion (what the thread is about)
and a commercial/policy/politics discussion (that's what you're trying to
make up here... or are you just baiting?).

Then again, you also mix up direction of traffic. Traceroute from here
to you doesn't go via the US:

Not perfect (Frankfurt->Paris->Frankfurt), but stays in EU (before going
to .il).

So you should probably discuss your route to me with your uplink if
you're unhappy with the path it takes.

Please follow up via private mail if you really desire, but keep this debate
off NANOG, thanks.
