    I've been asking on my posting the question: Why does the USA need Israel more than Israel needs the USA? My Dear Solomon, you answered that technology, research and defense is "heads and shoulders above the USA..." That superior technology point falls short because: in some fields Israelis have made break-throughs and in other areas the USA has the break-throughs. USA defense technology is clearly superior--that's a huge portion of US Aid to Israel is defense arms. Dan Senor wrote a book about bussiness start-ups in Israel which i beleive is true and is impressive, but thechnology is bought and sold so there is tansfer (for compensation). The USA did the Manhattan project and the national laboratories that resulted is a "brain trust of talent" that no other country has ever assembled. Bottom line: America doesn't need Israel. And you should learn that there are many middle class americans very upset with Israel draining USA money and "dancing" on the issue of peace
