Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday he would strive for "maximum understanding" with Washington on peace issues but gave no sign he intends to bow to its demand to halt settlement expansion. Netanyahu has no intention of risking the collapse of his coalition by ceasing all settlement activity in the Occupied West Bank.
American would be just as quick to go to war, and maybe even quicker, for Israel, or even threaten the world to save Israel, as they would for America, of which Israel is such an integral part! AIPAC, or the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, describes itself as the most important organization affecting the U.S. relationship with Israel. With a budget of $65 million, and membership now standing at over 100,000, it is no wonder that congressional staffers consider it one of the most powerful and effective lobbies on Capitol Hill.
This is what much of the world does not understand: that even now, Israel is an integral part of America. Not only Israel's money, brains, politics and arms are American, but so are her clothes, cars, homes, ads, industries, agriculture, trade, attitudes and sometimes arrogant belligerency are also all-American--even much of her language, movies, etc., for which you cannot blame her, since Israel is American, and her only hope of survival is America. So America and Israel will stick together to the bitter end, as they have proven in every Arab-Israeli war so far!
