I'd Love to Hear Such Words From Israel:

Abbas: $460 million in US aid "does not mean they dictate to us whatever they want"
In Perkei Avot, Ethics of the Fathers, we're taught that we're supposed to learn from everyone, and yes, I have no doubt that even Mahmoud Abbas has what to teach us.  The less doubt and compromise you display the less people pressure you.

And of course, Castro's Cuba is the best example/proof that being the United States #1 enemy is not a death sentence.  Castro has outlived his opposition, internal and external.

Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran proves the point that even being a good friend of America doesn't guarantee support and survival when you need it.

And yes, all of my examples are dictatorships, and Israel is a democracy with the la la Left controlling the courts, media and universities.  So, when you take that into consideration, Israel is under the dictatorship of the la la Left, a very dangerous situation and the reason why our politicians spout Leftist dogma, ideology, rather than what's really best for the secure future of the State of Israel in the Land of Israel.

The only thing that will truly save us would be leadership not looking to curry favor with other nations. Israel must have true Jewish leaders, not followers of other nations and ideologies.

Time to give up American aid money?

Of course. We'd be richer without it. We coul revitalize our military industry. America doesn't want this. They want our business with them and they want our experts giving advice on how to improve their products and then they want to control what we sell.

On the other hand, there seems to be a disconnect between what the US govt. thinks about Israel versus the general population:

Most Americans favor an end to US foreign aid to the Middle East... except to Israel

No doubt that your simple American has more common sense than the State Department.

Someone described the manner in which America distributed aid in the Middle-east as giving Israel a pistol and the Arab countries high-powered rifles. That's without taking into consideration the fact that the "aid" that America gives Israel is used to prop up American companies, mainly weapons producers although a friend did tell us that he was eating Kellog's cornflakes when he was on reserve duty.
The State Department buries its reports that reveal the fact that the 1948 borders of Israel are untenable. I've seen them on-line, but most people choose to ignore them.
