Why is Israel our ally, some even argue the greatest of our allies?Submitted by PsychoWorld on Sat, 12/01/2012 - 22:29
We have all heard of it, Israel is our ally, we must defend our greatest ally, Friends don't let friends get nuked, the list goes on.
So here's something to discuss, why is Israel our ally at all?
I have not heard of anyone who gives a reason behind their statement: "Israel is our ally" Friends, family, politicians, or media talking heads. It was simply given to me as a fact.
What have Israel ever done that is in favor of the United States, but is not directly in their national interests? Because I am sure the USA have done that in many occasions.
Why were they considered an "ally" to begin with?
Where did the notion of Israel being an ally even come from?
I hope anyone who comments can help to shed light on this matter
