All this talk of strained relations with this country the British created. Really what is one think that Israel has done for the US people. I hate to tell them but those F-16 they are flying over there are US made and payed by US tax payers and they are the ones with there hands out. Anytime the Palestine starts to kick there ass they come running to there big brother the US for help but now that the US has some peace talks with Palestine they pitch a hissy fit. Well I say this, why dont we give them the the good ole cold shoulder for a year and see who needs who more. :rant:

If we denied them all military aide then we also couldn't really influence them in their decision making and they would wipe Palestine off the map.

We're the ones keeping them strong but we also keep them in check.

Because John Hagee wants us to.

I guess they're pretty loyal to us. But so is Liberia and we don't do crap for them.

Glad that none of you are actually in charge on anything.

Israel does a lot of R and D for us and is a valuable ally in a hostile region with lots of delicious oil.

That and in the end times God will punish all those who were mean to the Jews.

The first part is worth some dough. The second part is the province of legislators that also believe in death panels.

Actually, the primary reason is that, as part of the camp david peace accords, we signed a treaty that we would provide support to both Israel and Egypt. Also, Israel is far more of a natural allie to us than the other nations in the region, and they pretty much have been since the 50's, although we have been providing them with significant military assistance only since the end of the six day war.

Why do some cities offer extra incentives for cops to buy homes in really bad neighborhoods?

Would they really be much of an allie if we didnt funnel all that money to them and give them weapons to defend themselves. The real problem here is that they dont like we have a Muslim pres. The fact that we can actually talk to other Muslim country now dose not hurt cause as been said before we dont have many allies around there.
