You are right that a key part of the relationship is money but Egypt gets almost the same amount and I don't see Mubarak being taken over the coals for telling arafat it would be a disaster for him to agree at Camp Davis in 2000. Mubarak is left untouched and Egypt can do what it wants including telling Secretary Rice to get lost when she was there asking for Egyptian support for containing Hamas. So Egypt proves it isn't only money. That the US had war plans in the 1960s in case Israel 'got out of hand' proves that the US supports a Warsaw Ghetto type Israel. The support for Israel in the recent Lebanese war was due to Hezbollah being responsible for killing so many Americans but the US pulled that support plug just when Israel was putting into effect a pincher move on the ground on Hezbollah. So is the US really serious about supporting Israel? Yes, as long as she knows her 'place'.
