Sucking Up Shamelessly to Israel


Benefitting Israel harms America.

by Stephen Lendman

America's special relationship with Israel too often reflects the tail wagging the dog. Increasingly, the Jewish state is more strategic liability than asset.

The Israeli Lobby has a virtual stranglehold on US foreign policy. Blunt pressure is applied to get Washington to accede to interests harming its own. Fear prevents most House and Senate members from openly expressing criticism. It's no different for presidents and administration officials. 

Anyone stepping out of line is called anti-Semitic, challenged electorally, or replaced. Journalists know doing it risks recriminations and/or dismissal.

Netanyahu combines street bullying, belligerent bluster, hotheaded arrogance, and childish pouting. He's an adolescent who never grew up. Why Israelis put up with him who knows. More at issue is why Washington doesn't cut him loose and treat Israel no differently than other allies.

Both countries threaten world peace. Together, the danger is heightened. They're joined together at the hip like a two-headed monster. Each seeks regime change in Syria and Iran.
