    called Special Relationship Israel so desperately holds on to is compliance with the masters whip. So long as Israel puts US interests above Israeli interests the arms and the money and the diplomatic cover will flow. This is the costs of clinging to fantasy and denying dependence. Iran an existential threat to Israel, but a mere nuisance to the US (at least in the obviously simplistic terms US policy-makers view the Middle East[wait until Russia-backed Iran takes over!]), then lap-dog that Israel is must obey the master. Israel never had that much coveted Special Relationship. There never was equality in reciprocity. Mistake from the start to allow relationship of dependence, first France, then US. Diversify. Keep US relationship, but diversify. India, China, the countries of the future. Plus the west.
