The days of Israel being seen as a new nation surrounded by hostile neighbors is over. It is no longer the sanctuary of homeless Europeans displaced by a tyrant bent on genocide romanticized in "Exodus" and supported by other nations feeling guilty about having turned away Jewish refugees before and during WWII. Instead it has become the aggressor being led by the right wing nationalist Netanyahu. Israel acts like the bratty little kid who taunts his enemies knowing his big brother will come to his rescue in the event the dispute comes to blows. As far as I'm concerned the US should not send one more dime or bullet to Israel. They should sink or swim by their own efforts and work out their differences through diplomacy in their religious wars.
