This article is amusing. It suggests that the U.S. is making terrible demands on Israel by asking that Israel stop stealing Palestinian land. Also amusing is the idea that America's support for Israel has been beneficial to the U.S.: "Support of Israel has served the U.S. interests more than supporting anyone else in the world." Prior to the creation of Israel, the U.S. had a friendly relationship with the Arab world. Sociological studies indicated that the Arabs admired the British for their achievements, but resented their colonialism. On the other hand, the Arabs ascribed to the Americans the positive qualities of the British without the charge of colonialism. U.S. support for Israel ended America's honeymoon with the Arab world. The hostility toward the U.S. has been expensive. The attack on New York on September 11 is just one of the costs. It is true that Israel helps the U.S. in their conflicts in the Middle East, but these conflicts exist because of the U.S. support of Israel.
