Why does the U.S. support Israel? Is it just for political reasons or are there other reasons too.

Political reasons. If we didn't support Israel, they might just have to rely on their own "devices" to defend themselves. What would that do to the price of oil?

So that's it? Oil? If it were not for the oil, then the arabs would control Israel and the Israelis would be without a place of their own?

We actually hold Israel back. If the US was out of the picture, Israel would have completely eliminated every threat against them a long time ago. They would also have more land than they could settle in 100 years. So who's defending who?
