Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News: Netanyahu is demolishing the strategic alliance with U.S.

"It's impossible to overstate the importance of an alliance with the West, and especially the United States, prior to Israel's first confrontation with a regional power. It's not "just" about American planes, bombs and refueling. It's not "just" about information from the NATO radar in Turkey; or about ending the war before it drags on longer than the eight year Iran-Iraq war, as senior Mossad officials have warned it could; or even about finishing the process of halting Iran's nuclear program, which Israel lacks the capacity to do on its own.
Israel's entire deterrent posture - which is what prevents the 200,000 missiles aimed at it from actually being launched - stems from its alliance with the United States. If Israel is viewed in this region not as part of the American world order, but as America's foe, this deterrence will be destroyed."
After the $ one trillion Iraq war the US is no longer going to give Israel a blank check to attack its enemies.

It is unfortunate that Israel did not try to make peace with its Arab neighbors. Instead it became the school yard bully of the Middle East. Israel is now nervous that its nuclear supremacy is fading away.

However, that is Israel's problem, not the problem of the US.

No American should have to sacrifice their life for Israel. No American should have to pay $5 a gallon or more for gasoline to mollify the crazed Israeli war monkey, Benjamin Natenyahu.

The best thing that could happen would be for the Israeli people to dump the Likud and Natenyahu before it is too late for peace.
