Yes to think of Israel as an ally is a complete joke. I have more trust in the Turks than Israel. My idea of an ally is one that is willing to shed blood in a great encounter. Last time I looked Israel was never in the Korean war, the turks were with their Turkish Brigrade that saved americans lives at the battle of Kunuri in North Korea and are now with us in Afghanstan. Israel never was never in Vietnam or any of the gulf wars or in Iraq or Afghanstan. Yet I am told this country suppose to be my ally. Its laughable when this is told to me. The relationship is one sided with Israel getting the best part of the deal. One of the reasons we are in the Middle East outside of the oil is because of Israel. You tax our resources with your constant spoiled rants and demands. Personally I think America would be better off without this so called "ally".
