    The United States must continue to contribute tens of billions of dollars of wealth to Israel without expecting Israel to do anything but harm to the foreign policy of the United States. Indeed, Israel believes it has the right to treat the United States with total contempt and do it as much harm as Israel pleases. Why should Israel not have such a contemptuous attitude? When has the United States put it's survival above the desires of Israel? Never. So how long should Israel depend for it's national existence upon the United States remaining a nation willing to not only sacrifice it's existence for israel, but pay with national humiliation by israel? Only Israel could imagine such chutzpah. Only Israel could imagine it could forever despise and embarrass American and yet continue to be a welfare client and submissive servant of Israel. Israel has gotten away with treating America with total contempt. As Israel's slave. I am not certain this ability will persist. Israel does.
