"True friends" don't encourage you to continue what amounts to suicidal behavior - which is precisely what the United States has been doing for Israel for the last 40 years. A "true friend" would take real action to prevent Israel from continuing with its destructive, criminal, and ultimately suicidal policies. When Israel ceases to exist as a "Jewish state" years from now, Israelis will have no one to blame but themselves and their "true friend" America, which pays for the settlement project that is killing any chance of a two state solution. "True friend"? Please.
