    Israel would be what it was after 1967, a tiny country that defends its borders, competes with superpowers for military design contracts and win’s its wars. The political restraint America buys may be costing Israel in the long term, but as long as our objectives are compatible there should be no problems. Our objectives can become incompatible if America tries to gain favor with the aggressively expanding Islamic World, this sort of thing can only be followed by other betrayals like the one in Serbia or Ivory Coast or Darfur. America and Israel must both recognize the mutual enemy and work together, logically, towards best possible conclusions. Israel needs resources and if it can not get them from America, it will have to get those resources from someone else. America has much to gain from Israel technologically and would much prefer that technology come to America instead of going to India or China. People who hate America and Israel will try to drive a wedge between.
