" The glib and simple answer to the question however is that no other successful middle income strategically critical ally of the US faces anything like the existential threat that Israel doesThe last time would probably have been 1940. The US did much the same thing then that it does now."You forgot to mention that the US still does this in the form of United States Forces-Korea (USFK). South Korea is in the same or higher income category as Israel. Yet, the US not only spends money on Korea's defense, the US commits a 4-star command with 28,500 troops for Korea's defense. At a cost of $100,000 per soldier, that would bring spending close to $3 billion, in the ballpark of US aid to Israel. Even with Korean subsidization of our military presence there, the US still spends a substantial amount subsidizing the defense of a high-income nation.
We control all media. Which is universally against us.We control all governments. Which universally don't support us.We control all banks. Which is why we survive on an infinite stream of US aid.
Bravo, my friend.Nicely done.By the way, I like this notion of Palestine as the anti-state."Palestinianism" as a nation movement is the only national movement in world history that was born strictly out of a desire to destroy another national movement, in this case the movement for Jewish liberation on historically Jewish land.
Gaza or the PLO have, for about a decade been the world's first fully functional terrorist states which use terrorism as legitimate tools of foreign and domestic policy. Not the first states to use it mind you but the first where outsiders accept it as a one for one substitute for civil order and jurisprudence. We complain, in the west about anarchy in places like Somalia and Mali and Nigeria. But in so far as the violence and chaos in Gaza and Judea Samaria are more or less the same as those places, we more than tolerate it more than accept it, we elevate it as a noble and just thing. Permanent revolution.Which is fine, as far as it goes. But it will be interesting to see what an 'independent palestine' does to order its own society given that. Don't like your water bill? Blow up the bill collector. Streets not paved? Set fires and murder the paving crew on another street. Mad as the TV news? Kill the news anchor. Can't get your visa approved? Kidnap the minister of visa's cousin and saw her head off on YouTube. A foreign delegation comes to visit and they don't kiss your shoes? Shoot their plane down. And for the government's response to the governed? Did the news insult you? Throw a hundred people in prison, execute 5 of them and close down the studio. The garbage trucks not paying their baksheesh? Take all the trucks away and give them to some other family member. Contract law? No such animal. It will be interesting to see how they thrive when their whole country is Klingon Sesame Street.
Klingon Sesame StreetLuvitI'm hearing an echo of a distant voice through the valleys?What the Jimmy Carter is Israel doing anyway?Excuse my language.Why is Israel the first state in history to supply the enemy regime with everything it needs except ammunition during a full scale war in progress? Why is Israel the first state in history to be denounced by the international community for delivering for the first time in history a demonstratively much higher duty of care to the civilian population of the enemy regime than the enemy regime itself? The questions just keep on pouring
