Originally posted by vivifyWhy would you think that our allies in Western Europe would be pleased if the U.S. stopped supporting the only non-Muslim dominated country in the Middle East? Yes, Israel has some human rights issues but I think compared to most or all other Middle East countries it should be supported as a bulwark against possible Islamist extremism. For those in this forum who dislike Israel, it is not a country that wishes to take over the world and convert the planet.
P.S.: If the U.S. abandoned its support of Israel, would our status go up in the world?
