Dont be so naive, this is politics! And where Israel is in the MiddleEast makes it a worthy ally.

Exactly. Its about the only consistent place in that region we have to operate whatever we have going on out of. The CIA probably is based out of
Israel for that region as well as who knows what for our intelligence gathering.
Even taking all politics out of it, I would consider it vital to have a stronghold in a region that we otherwise have basically no inroads to.
Suppose all the Jews were to pack up and leave tomorrow for say Ethiopia and the Palestinians took over. I'd still support sending them massive
amounts of money to keep that influence in the region. I'd probably go to Kuwait and let them buy a new military but their amount of money kind of
limits our influence.
Who knows what issue we are going to face tomorrow in that region so we need a safe place to base operations out of. Think of Israel as our giant
military base in the Middle East.
