The US has done more for the State of Israel than any other country. Canada also has been a big supporter. But can Israel even do one thing to please them?? Is it a matter of security to build those units? No. Are are homeless and need an apartment to live in? No. It's just a matter of the pig headed attitude of this regime that wants to show it does what IT feels is neccessary, regardless how it affects its partners. And I will say that partner is loose term. It sees the US as a parent, and it doesn't want to be responsible to. It doesn't want to be responsible to adhere to conventions, because that would be seen as being obedient to its parent, and it is a grown up country now, with its own rights and freedom. At the same time, it can not really afford to live on its own without outside aid from the US and other countries. So I would say this, if you're living under our roof - and you are - we pay the bills - do what we f'n want once and a while huh???
