Arab nations only use our relationship with Israel as a convenient excuse for their actions and rhetoric.
It's just too damn bad that every offer to share the land since 1948 has been rejected, not by Israel but by her neighbors. The 1948 UN Mandate that created Israel divided up the county pretty evenly, but the new nation was immediately attacked.
I have travelled to Israel many times, and have family there. I have also been to France, Germany, etc. The US is respected and admired there. I could not say that about our other "allies."
For the US to turn it's back on Israel would be like Stalin signing a non-aggression pact with Hitler - a fat lot of good it did the Soviet Union!!
we Americans end up paying for it????? I just lost two very close friends today. We need to halt support to Israel! We Americans are paying for it. WHAT NEXT FOR THAT TINY PIECE OF LAND??????
