Israel wants to have peaceful relations with the Kurds. The US which is now trying to get nice and cozy with Turkey allowed them to send troops into Kurdistan and they have not condemned the fact that hundreds of Kurds have been killed by Turkish troops in the last couple of years. Israel is probably the only country that won't be affected by the US quick withdraw because it has no land borders. The surrounding arabs states, Kurds, and Iraqis will be the ones who may end up suffering when Obama packs up and leaves ( just int ime for the midterms ) and then he will pull out of Afghanistan just intime for the presidential election in 2012.
