I don't know what makes you think Israel is important ally in fight against radical Islamic terrorism. You must read Israeli propaganda. Arab countries are the US most effective allies in struggle against terrorism. Countries like Saudi Arabia are in the front line of the war against Islamic terrorism along with Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait and the Gulf states. They provide the US superb intelligence support, and military bases. Recently, over a 4-day period the Saudis killed 15 members of Al Qaeda, and they have over 200 in prison. It is also supporting Yemen on its NE border with air strikes against Islamic terrorist elements. (Al Qaeda.) You should know Israel is not involved in this fight. It talks big but considers Hamas and Hezbollah its primary terrorist targets. But they don't attack the US nor other nations involved in the fight, and are considered by everybody but Israel to be small potatoes and not worthy of attention. How many Al Qaeda members has Israel killed and imprisoned?
