I don't care about Newguy and his biblical fatalism. We cannot abandon israel.
Why? Who made us defenders of Israel?
Now THAT is a good question. William?
defender of Israel nearly from the get-go.. The U.S. and the U.S.S.R. were the first nations to recognize the new nation.. We since have backed them to the hilt at the U.N. and sold them some of our most advanced weaponry.. In addition during the 1973 Yom Kippur war the U.S. provided emergency fighter plane replacements to Israel, literally taking planes out of U.S. current use and painting out the Air Force symbols and relacing them with the Star of David.. So the answer is----- learned friends---we Americans...
Thanks for the History Lesson; you've yet to answer the original question however.
We made us the defenders of Israel. And we cannot back out now, regardless of biblical fatalism.
The point is not that we SHOULD.
In fact, we SHOULDN'T.
But, we WILL.
I got that and that was understood in the original response to my "why?" question. Let me rephrase my question.
I have yet to read or hear a cogent argument that explains the answer to that question.
They're an ally and a freedom oriented society in an otherwise enemy filled and despotic area. Even in the most crass way, it's advantageous for us to have an ally in the region.
