What anti-Semites like Herr Hermann and RyanM fail to admit is that Israel and the US, uniquely, share the same enemies. The mullahs say: "First the Saturday People, the the Sunday People." They are so obsessed with their hatred of THE JOOOZZZZ that ignore the importance of having a reliable ally smacjk in the middle of the nations who harbor and fund our enemies. The massive amounts of intel Israel provides the US mean nothing to them, since they live in some fantasy bubble in which the Muslims only hate us because we support Israel. That's just a lie, and it would take all of 2 minutes on the web to find leading Jihadists who state clearly that once Israel is gone, America is next. The pro-Israel lobby is more Christian than Jewish.
