"I have every reason to believe that Israel has back up plans and strategies well developed for the unlikely chance that the US will suddenly make a 180 degree abut face" I certainly can't share your optimistic opinion on this. I believe that, as Johnboy says, Israel is certain that America will always "be there for it"...and can't imagine a time this may not be so. Otherwise, how to explain the cavalier manner in which Israel treats American friendship, i.e., promising America to dismantle the illegal outposts in the WB, and not doing it. That is just one example of how casually Israel takes America for granted.
