Comments on: Israel won’t strike Iran alone, no matter how much it hates the nuclear deal http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/07/15/israel-wont-strike-iran-alone-no-matter-how-much-it-hates-the-nuclear-deal/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Benny27 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/07/15/israel-wont-strike-iran-alone-no-matter-how-much-it-hates-the-nuclear-deal/#comment-1085837 Mon, 20 Jul 2015 19:54:39 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=42140#comment-1085837 “…seemingly offhand reference to Israel’s commercial capital. It is almost unheard of for a representative of an Israeli ally to use Tel Aviv as shorthand for the state”

It is uniform and normal for anyone and everyone to refer to Tel Aviv as Israel’s political capitol. It is Israel’s capitol, only the Israelis think otherwise.

They dislike the US but love US money. They even dislike American Jews who make aliyah.
Now that the nuclear agreement with Iran is near completion, Israel is no doubt trying to figure out a way to get the US further involved in Israel’s problems – if that’s possible.

Israel is as unpopular in the future prosperity of the region as Greece is to the EU.

Their should be Conditions placed on when we would Defend them. For instance israel were to attack Iran and Iran were to respond this does not justify a US response to defend Israel. Under conditions such as these Iran was provoked into responding and Israel would surely have had in the back of its mind a US backing to such a strike. Under these conditions the US should be able to step back and take a neutral position between both sides on the matter.

Barry is a total moron – the USG has not made a single intelligent decision since WWII

The 3 billion dollars Israel receive annually in foreign assitance from the United States, represents a 600% return on investment for them. Win-win for all involved (unless you’re a flunkie U.S. taxpayer). It’s free money for Israel and Washington DC!

No wonder Bohner likes Israel so much.
