your platitudes. The US is not Israels defender and Israels essential interest is to survive and prosper , its not to acquiesce to US essential interests. are you advocating the US should go to war with Israel just to please rthe arabs? frankly, i can see the logic in that. this is the slogan often heard through history in many countries "Kill the Jews and save the nation". You know it well. what you don't know is that Jews paid dearly in blood and money to create Israel as an independent sovereign Jewish state. Got it? It is independent, it is sovereign and its Jewish. moeover it is armed to the teeth because it cannot rely on false abd broken promises of fair weather friends like you. do you not think that Israel is unaware of the historical fact that the US always was pro-arab and sided with Arabs whenever it could? Only when the Arabs sided with the USSR in 1952 to 1973 did the US back Israel, and that only in 1973, on;y after the MASSIVE USSR resuply of Egypt and Syria.
