    How pitiful that Akiva Eldar has chosen this time in the US's history to suggest reconsidering the friendship between our two countries. We are at war and not just any war but the War On Radical Islam with a goal of removing the threat of radical Islamist totalitarianism from the world including the Middle East, so that Israel and other civilized people can have the peace they have sought for nearly 60 years. For Eldar to suggest Israel might be better off abandoning the US is simply ungrateful and quite disgusting. Eldar and others who are taking this position now should be ashamed of themselves.Many of the US's so-called friends have abandoned her but Israel? Israel would not exist without the US. Do you need to be reminded Eldar of all the times Israel would have been destroyed without the support of the USA? Do you know what that support has cost the US in tax dollars and in American lives? Shame on you. How many trillion dollars have you been given? Shut up or do it on your own!
