    I tend to see the relationship as an asset, too. It was interesting to read commentaries that elaborate specifically why that's the case.

    fyi: I have a Mossad t-shirt that was given to me by a friend. It's probably my favorite t-shirt of all time because it is cool as fuck.

    That's nice--but is it worth supporting everything they do ?

    It is if you don't enjoy being called an anti-semite.

    I've often wondered this myself. The costs associated are huge. We could have an entirely different type relationship with the Arab world without supporting Israel.

    Israel has certainly given us reasons to throw them over. The USS Liberty, spying against us etc.

    Of course it is all just mental masturbation. We will no sooner break relations with Israel than give Florida to Cuba. The jewish lobby is far too strong here for any other result.

    I suspect you'd find that if you didn't make comments like that, and didn't support throwing Israel under the bus, that you might find some agreement and some disagreement on the things that Israel has done.

    But it would also mean a reality check about the double standard to which Israel is subjected and that no other country on earth would be asked to tolerate the things that the world expects Israel to tolerate.

    I don't support everything anyone does. Jesus, get a grip on reality. Nobody supports anyone else 100%...not in reality. Just ask the widow of Rabin.
