2. "support for Israel is less about humanitarianism or " In response to Reply # 1
AIPAC than it's about having an ally in the oil-rich Middle East. despite the USA having doled out billions in cash and weapons and other aid to almost every nation in that region, Israel is the USA's primary (if not sole) ally in that region. meaning Israel is the only country over there w/any juice that will jump when the USA says 'jump'. Kuwait is there but has no juice, really.
