    Israel believes that the National Interest of the United States is to continue to harm itself for the benefit of Israel. israel believes that the national interest of the USA is simple. It must harm itself because Israel wants it. Israel believes that the USA will NEVER decide to act in it's interest instead of continually do harm to itself because Israel demands it. Perhaps Israel is right. Or, perhaps, Israel is headed mindlessly toward the moment when America decides that it has to do what is good for itself rather than what Israel wants. Israel cannot continue to ask Americans to betray themselves while continuing to deny America ANY return concern or benefit. It is not wise. A one-way deal where ONLY Israel wins and America always loses will not persist for ever. And when it ends, Israel will have alienated it's ONLY friend left in the world. Get your arm stiff, at 45 degrees, and shout "Hail Netanyahu!" Comforting isn't it?
