Why isn't Israel joining the fight against ISIS?

President Barack Obama's ISIS war plan includes seeking support from Arab nations and others in the battle in Iraq and Syria, but why is Israel sitting the war out when both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and our government have proclaimed Israel to be our staunchest ally? Is it too much for Mr. Netanyahu and Israel, our staunchest ally, to use all the aircraft, weapons, munitions and airfields U.S. taxpayers have funded to attack ISIS in Israel's backyard and thus help an old friend — and the U.S. taxpayers? Has he forsaken the U.S. taxpayers who graciously gave to Israel billions in cash, squadrons of fighter aircraft, vast weapons with mountains of munitions, generous research and development funds to build Iron Dome missile systems and heaps of other freebies? Our presidents, with the support of Congress, have even abused our ability to veto all UN war crimes resolutions against Israel and have funded its neighbor states to help protect it! President Obama, are you and Congress being good stewards of U.S. taxpayers' funds?
