  • Everyone supports Israel since they (illegally) declared their independence in 1948. Israel has a large stockpile of nuclear weapons but relies on the United States to be their attack dog in the Middle East and elsewhere. (It's weird that Israel was created to be the "Homeland for the Jews" and yet, more Jews live in the United States than Israel.) Ah...but that's another topic...

      If you ever read the Bible, yes I know reading is hard, you would have discovered that Israel is the "Land of Milk and Honey" that God gave to the Jews. They claimed is after WWII as their religious homeland which is in the Bible. God told them to go into the land of Canaan and "Kill every man, woman and child" Deut. 7.1-2; 20.16-18

      You're creating quite a soup, dude. The command to go into Canaan and 'kill every man' has nothing to do with the Balfour Declaration or the establishment of Israel as a political state. Deuteronomy is 34 books before the New Testament even started - way back in the early, EARLY BCEs. What kind of hockey puck are you trying to hand me? (LOL). And if Israel is "the land of milk and honey", why are most of them bleeding us in the United States for it?

      I can't argue with you there - corruption breeds corruption. BTW - the "Homeland for the Jews" was never really a homeland for the Jews - that was just a selling point to gain support. It was actually established as a political state - complete with the corruption that permeates politics in every country. Truman couldn't stand them. "Jesus Christ couldn't please them (Jews) when he was here on earth, so how can anyone expect that I would have any luck?" - Harry S Truman
  • (1) Is Israel an Allie of the US? - "Ally" - yes. Strategically: a very important ally. (2) What sanctions has Israel placed on Russia? None, for several reasons. This article mentions some of the more important ones. {{ https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-hasnt-joined-anti-russia-sanctions-but-its-firms-need-to-tread-carefully/ }} (3) Or is the US meant to support Israel but when its going to cost Israel money they cant help the US? - Israel - naturally - must follow its own best interests. MOST of the time those interests are aligned with international interests of the U.S., but OFTEN they are NOT. This is one of the cases in which they are NOT. Just as most European nations refuse to ban imports of Russian petroleum and natural gas products (it is NOT in their national interest to do so), so Israel does not join the U.S. in implementing policies that are clearly contrary to their national and/or political interests. Now: IF the Israeli people at large demand that Israel join in sanctioning Russia, then it will be in Israel's political interest to do so and they probably will do so. In the mean time, they avoid doing so...as do several other erstwhile allies of the U.S.
