U.S. kowtows to Israel

National GovernmentIsrael

Ray McGovern, in his op-ed ("Is Israel fixing the intel?" July 31), questions whether Israel is our ally since there is no mutual defense treaty between the U.S. and Israel.

I also question whether Israel is an ally, not so much because of a recognized treaty, but because Israel has never done anything that I can see for the benefit of this country. Oh yes, the U.S. is definitely an ally of Israel, lavishing on it economic, military, and political support far beyond that which we give other countries, and even beyond what our government gives to its own citizens.

It is truly amazing (even humiliating, I would say) as to how the "world's greatest superpower" dances to the tune of the Israeli government and the neo-cons here.
