Perhaps the US needs to address the USS Liberty attack, the deaths of US citizens at the hands of Israeli troops. Put these matters on the table and much more beside and we discover that Israel has NOT been a friend of the US. at any time. This Mr Pollard was and is a traitor betraying the US for the sake of Israel. Then one finds that AIPAC has the gall to expect the US to go to war against Iran as it did with Iraq. AND wants the US to continue to subsidise the Israeli budget. The US demeans itself enough in relation to Israel.
