It is hard to understand U.S. government support for Israel, even given the generally pro-Israel attitude of the sheeple who make decisions based on superficial media info. I tend to think there is more to it, some "special sauce" for the special relationship. I can't guess whether it is a simple flow of intelligence data from Israel to U.S., a broader agreement for Israel to provide espionage services the U.S. wants but cannot afford the cost of, some extortion/blackmail threat under which U.S. is acting against its will, or simply an outrageous mastery of the U.S. lobby and electoral political systems. Conspiracy theories abound. U.S. common sense is hard to find.
