Just as in the 1967 war, the US government may be against them but the people are with them. It SUCKS because it led to the tragedy of the USS Liberty, but people have to remember, US policy was anti-Israel, and they probably WERE spying for the Gyps or the House of Saud. Probably not the Saudis, because as Wahabbists they HATED us then, and they hate us now. Our relationship is purely pecuniary.

Did u just seriously excuse an attack on our military by a foreign country?
You raise a good point. I wouldn't say US policy from post WWII was anti-Israel. It was simply pro-Arab. The US sides against France, Britain and Israel in the Suez Canal crisis. It also would not sell arms to Israel in fear of pissing off the Arabs, which is why Israel got its arms from the French.
