    It's funny, if sickening, to see Obama bending the knee to Israel for votes, and coming out with all the 'I love you so much, Israel,' bit. What's even more funny and sickening is to see that Bibi and AIPAC actually believe it. They preen their feathers and think that the US CAN'T DO WITHOUT Israel. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha! The US seemed to do surprisingly well without Israel before 1948 and I imagine it could do euqally well without it now. The UK offers the US a whole lot more than Israel for a whole lot less, but there is NO WAY any British PM would have the sheer arrogance to describe us to an American audienc as America's 'indispensable ally'!
