    "Israel would be wise to recognize that dependence upon US money not only leaves them susceptible to Bush`s desire for good headlines from the Middle East, but ultimately to the consequences resulting from the inevitable end of that funding." I think Israel recognizes the pros and cons of receiving aid from the US. Funny but I remember Bibi when he ran for the first time talked about not accepting American aid at all to curtail American influence. I haven't heard him saying that since he was elected. I wonder why? It would be better for Israel in the long run to receive less aid and to increase business with the US instead. I don't know if that will ever happen although there are many joint ventures ongoing in defense, science, medicine and other industries that are profitable to both countries. As for Bush, I don't think Israel is high on his agenda and if there is progress or not won't make a difference to him.
