Letter: What has Israel done?

Do people really believe that Israel is a friend of the United States? One must ask, “What has Israel ever done for the U.S.?” Absolutely nothing positive. Allowing Israel to drag the U.S. into multiple Middle East conflicts is like going out every night with a drunken idiot who starts bar fights wherever he or she goes. We lavishly supply Israel with billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars and political support. In return, Israel spies on the United States, attempts to undermine our political process, shuns our attempts at diplomacy and is now pushing for the release of Jason Pollard, an American spy who jeopardized American lives and supplied Israel with a treasure trove of U.S. intellectual property.

Israel exploits, deceives and uses the U.S., is certainly no comrade and has become a fanatical state that is clearly an enemy of the U.S. due to its hostile, uncompromising government. The belligerent state of Israel will figure a way to involve the U.S. in its future conflicts, because Israel and those who support a warmongering Israel are cowards unwilling to fight their own battles and appear to have unlimited resources and means of creating mischief to achieve such ends.
