This guy seems to get a lot of "Air" time on Haaretz. The U.S. only assists when it sees a benefit. Plain and simple. Aside from the Wiki Leaks and the Palestine Papers which have ZERO credibility the reality of Middle East politics escapes 99% of people here. You have Arabs posing as Jews, Arabs posing as Americans and giving their propaganda. I can even notice discrepancies in the way the same person writes English. Take what people like Silver write with a grain of salt. The reality is that the U.S. needs a strong Israel more than ever. WHY?? Because without Israel the next regimes to fall are the Oil Sheikdoms. Then the entire world is in very very bad shape.
