Cut Israel loose? **** that. That would be a mistake, we'd lose a valuable friend and ally. I think you're confused when it comes to Israel.. Israel is not a middle-eastern country like the rest of the Arab world. It is a western democracy just like any European country or US state. Just look at what Israel contributes to the US, from the technology you use on a daily basis, to the medical procedures that will save your life, to the anti-terror training tactics of Marines who watch over you at night, to the Nobel laureates who advance science, biology, chemistry, economics and philosophy, to IDF's alliance with Nato, UN and US forces, among many MANY other commendable traits of this oasis of democracy in the most depraved and barbaric region on the planet. And you want to sever ties with THEM? I say cut the Arab world and Arab oil loose. Nothing good has EVER come out of that relationship. Nothing good has ever come out of Islam, the Quran, Sharia law and Islamic Jihad.
