U.S. Government must ask questions about their relationship with Israel. Foreign policy relationships can change dramatically between longtime allies depending on the various issues on the table at the time.For instance, the strained relationship between France and the US during the run-up to the war in Iraq. I am not an advocate of ditching Israel as an ally, but I think that the level of support given to Israel should be on par with how we deal with other allies. In other words, our level of support and cooperation and financial assistance should correspond to the level to which we are in full agreement with Israel's policies concerning international issues. Declaring itself a democracy is all fine and good, but Israel just like the US, should not be immune to criticism concerning the consequences of its actions that contravene the values associated with how a truly democratic state should conduct itself.Rogue states are another question, they have no pretense of legitimacy.
