    We all know what Israel gets from our 'special relationship.' Billions of dollars every years, special loan guarantees, tax breaks for 'charities' such as Settlement building, the unquestioned use of America's UN Veto. But what does America get in return? We get to be held in contempt. To have our government humiliated. We have even seen the Israeli government actively propagandizing against the current US administration. Last, and perhaps worst, we get absolutely no cooperation. I can't blame Israel for it's satisfaction with this arrangement. It is 100% one way. The US gives and Israel gets without any reciprocation or responsibility. What have over 40 years of unquestioned fealty by the USA produced for the USA? A hopeless position in the Mideast. It is time the USA start demanding some payback. Or, for Israel to learn how to get along without America. Fair is fair, and it's time for America to stop being a nebbish and time for Israel to stop being a putz.
