The sight of Netanyahu makes me sick. The amount of US TV time he gets is sickening. The way Congress reacted to him visiting, how they were practically drooling and rolled out the red carpet for him, made me want to vomit.
I want to be clear. I think Israel has every right to defend itself, Hamas is about nothing but destruction. I do not think Hamas cares at all about its own people, I think they are willing to die for their cause and willing for their children to die, and Israel is willing to accommodate them and I don't blame Israel for that! Who would put up with rockets being fired into their country constantly? I don't have a problem with the US supplying Israel with weapons.
My problem is the BLATANT disrespect Israelis are showing for the US. Their govt is spitting on ours. They totally insult and completely disrespect us. We are nothing but a tool for them, and that was made clear by the way Congress reacted to N's visit. Israel is not our friend. What do we get from this "friendship"? Nothing but hate from others in the world. Israel is not poor. Why can't they buy our weapons with their money? I'm sure if we did not sell them weapons, they'd get it from someone else, like France. Why do my tax dollars go to support Israel? It's one thing to give money to some poor country for aid like food, I support that.
If a friend who is otherwise friendless asks for your support and money which you give them, and then spits at you and insults you in front of others, would you stay friends with them? If you do, this "friend" will only come to hate you and be contemptuous of you. I have no doubt that in the future, if the US needs Israeli support for something, but it is not in Israel's interest to support the US, Israel will not come through. Israel knows they have Congress by the balls with their lobbyists. I feel like the US is a slave to Israel and I really don't understand it.
