The disrespect shown to VP Biden on his visit to Israel may not make a lot of difference in how the government sees Israel but to a lot of Americans it made a big difference in how Israel is viewed . After 60 years of support if you cant give anything to help a peace process then a lot of us think you dont need our help anymore . No money no millitary supplys, no vetos in the security council of the UN to protect israel, and no to doing anything about Iran . you want to thumb your nose at us? fine go it alone.
