Foxman has the chutzpah to say, "Support of Israel has served the U.S. interests more than supporting anyone else in the world." Nothing could be further from the truth. Israel's national interests are not identical or even congruent with US national interests. Often, the national interests of both nations actually conflict. Israel has never sent a single soldier to join the US armed forces in any of the conflicts and wars that the US has fought. How is it then that Israel gets to be called "America's greatest ally?" Consider this: the US War Lobby consists of the Defense lobby, the Israel lobby and the Energy lobby, together. The interests of these three related special interest groups may somehow dovetail with those of the militant Jewish State, but they do not reflect the public interests of America's citizens. Israel has dragged the USA into eternal Holy War, in order to actualize Herzl's utopian but flawed vision. This is a perversion of America's mission.
