    1. strengthening the Israeli military with the most advanced technologies to maintain military superiority over all neighboring countries; 2. maintaining a state of tension in the ME because of the blind and "unshakable" support of the US for the Israeli OCCUPATION. 3. denying the rights of the Palestinians to live in freedom and dignity. 4. threatening anyone who is indifferent to US-Israel policies in the ME (e.g. Iran, Syria). in the dictionary the word "security" means the state of being free from threat and danger. However in the case of Israel-US understanding of security it means " the state of making Israel more powerful so that it can at anytime threat others and make them vulnerable to Israeli attacks". P.S. American leaders have been visiting Israel more frequently recently. Perhaps to prepare for a war against Iran or perhaps to prevent Israel from making such an attack. If Iran is to be attacked, the US/Israel will lose because of the fragile economic situation that would fundamentally affect the US and the global economy. If they didn't attack, Iran will have an atomic bomb and Israel will count to ten before making any stupid moves. Iran is the winner in any case (those who doubt this because of american superiority are just blind simply because they can't realize the decline of the American dominance of the world and the rising of other powers).
