Most Arab countries have something we vitally need, oil. What does Israel have that is of vital interest to the U.S.? It seems that they are always getting us into deep trouble, and for what? In 1967 they attacked for over an hour by air and torpedo boats, the American war ship USS Liberty, killing four, and wounding 172 American sailors. In 1973-74 the Arab oil states, (OPEC) imposed an Oil Embargo on us for supplying weapons to Israel during the Yom Kippur War. This caused a severe recession in most of the western world, including the U.S. And recently their fight with their Arab brothers has spilled out of their back yard into our yard. I just want to know what is it that they are doing for us that is reason to put up with all the trouble?
