If the US should leave the region - then surely Israel should too as it is a by product of Europe and a legacy of ww2 - in any case, if Israel wants to make its own decisions, it needs to be self supporting and stand on its own two feet like a normal nation. The time of hiding behind the Christians in the west's knee do to guilt of ww2 are over - be a man and support yourself. Secondly, although the US is not well liked in the region, partly due to our support of Israel, Israel is hated in the region. I cannot wait for bibi to take on Obama - Bibi actually believes that Israel is a super power - what a joke!
