PressTV has a rather nice and well written article about this.
Israelis see their ownership of US government in jeopardy
That article is clearly biased yet I have to admit that it's based on well known facts.
America has asked / told / suggested that Israel not construct Jewish settlements on the Palestinian West Bank. Israel considers those settlements
their right, and have thumbed their noses at America in fact creating another form of apartheid. The fact that Israel has bought themselves a bunch of
senators to protect this policy is also an unfortunate fact, as is that Iran will never stop supporting the Palestinians while these Jewish
settlements are being built.
It's also true that America's own Richard Perle helped create the neocon's Israel-first policy, and he's the same guy who went on to make the case
to invade Iraq, unfortunately with a completely fabricated cover story. In short, the Israelis have created America's Neocons and use them to insure
we stay engaged in fighting Israel's targeted enemies. Iran, included.
Adding insult to injury, America transfer $Billions to Israel every year, which they in turn use to buy our very own senators. Nice work Israel. No
wonder Republicans scream if we try and reduce our payments to Israel, as our senators don't want a cut in their Israeli paychecks.
I would suggest that a kinder, gentler Israel, would make Mid East terrorism disappear, and along with it, the need for an obscene American defense
budget. This observation is not 'off the wall' as it's in fact shared by a majority of Israel's population.
This from Veterans Today .com
“The authors conclude that Israel is currently the greatest threat to US national interests because its nature and actions prevent normal US
relations with Arab and Muslim countries and, to a growing degree, the wider international community.”
