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?

I agree with you. One of the benefits of being the only ones who sell Israel arms is that we can exert an enormous amount of influence on their decisions to defend themselves. Of course, when we use that influence it doesn't exactly make us look like the guys in the white hats....but then, maybe we aren't.
