SDHD: "The Islamic countries hate the Jewish country and don`t provide as many concessions to the U.S. since the U.S. supports the Jewish country." It's not *just* that the USA "supports Israel", but that this USA support is uncritical and unthinking. Arab nations are like any other i.e. they have "national interests", and they will pursue those even if it is personally distastefull to the leadership. The USA, for example, will prop up terrible dictators, vile strongmen and heinous villians if it is in the USA's national interest. It is the same for Arab countries: they will support the USA even if the USA is allied to Israel **IF** they have good and sufficient reason to do so. The obsequessness of the USA towards Israel prevents those Arab states from supporting the USA, precisely because it is not in their national interests to support an Israeli glove-puppet.
