    Israel is the US's only stable ally in the region. Who else can the US count on? When new Israeli leaders are elected, though specific policies may change, there is no question that Israel will remain an ally of the US. You can't say the same thing about the other Arab and Muslim countries? What will happen when Mubarak in Egypt is no longer in power? What happens if the Muslim Brotherhood takes over and creates a Islamic fundamentalist state? Will Iraq continue to support the US after it leaves? What happened to Iran which was a staunch US ally? Its change to an Islamic fundamentalist state had nothing to do with the Arab-Israel conflict. How about Jordan who supported Iraq in the first US-Iraq war? How about Syria that supports the insurgency in Iraq? Saudi Arabia who exports Islamic fundamentalism around the world? Lebanon? Libya who blew up a civilian jet over Scottland? How about Turkey whose government is building stronger ties with Iran and who, with Iran, recently attacked Kurds in Iraq? DOes the US want allys like Hezbollah and Hamas? Look 10-20 years from now. Who would you like to bet on for being a US Ally? My bet would be on Israel
