Not everyone shares the "we must protect Israel" philosophy for religious reasons. I myself was an example when I was a neocon. Many people simply see them as a key ally that we must not abandon. They view Israel as the only free democracy in the region, and therefore we must defend them (I realize some people on here have very negative views of the Israeli state/government, but that is irrelevant. Regardless, the internal affairs of the Middle East are not our business.) Others feel that we have a responsibility to prevent a second Holocaust.
