    You maintain the US does nothing but build its own interests. If so, the US would dump the Israeli burden immediately. The US has been a steadfast Israeli ally for over 60 years. For all those years, the US protected Israel in the UN with vetoes, guaranteed Israel's international loans and supported Israel with aid, last year $3 billion. As of 2008 US aid to Israel since 1949 totaled $103.6 billion, plus interest lost on grants, unpaid loans etc. With everything, total cost to US is over $3 trillion. In addition, the US has consistently sacrificed its own national interests in the ME to support and further those of Israel. Many Americans believe our national interests lie in the Arab world, not in Israel. Arab nations provide oil, fought with us in the Gulf war, give us military bases, support the US in the IMF, World Bank and the UN. Some Arab allies provide superb intelligence on Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Israel provides none of that. You should hope the US remains naive.
