You're backing up my case. You provide all the more reason to stop this nonsensical talk about Israel being a "grateful" and "loyal" friend. There is nothing "special" about our relationship in that regard. Like all other countries, it would sell us down the river in a second, if it thought it would provide any benefit.
No, I do not. Is there any question but that England has been a loyal ally to us? I think not - but neither do we rely on their press releases.
Israel is a democracy surrounded by dictators and Islamic radicals who want to destroy it. They do not always follow our lead, thank God, but they are the only country in the region that shares American values.
Obama & Gates have a hard time recognizing that since Obama & Gates don’t care about American values.
