Israel to U.S.: “Mind Your Own Business.” “Help Me!!!”

If Israel were to attack Iran, the United States would be pulled into another war.  Just what we need — another quagmire in the Middle East.  And there would suddenly, miraculously be trillions of dollars available for this new Operation Freedom or whatever euphemism they’d come up with.

Whenever the American government tries to restrain Israel — or if you’re still walking on your  knuckles, that’s “apologizing for America” — the Israeli government tells us to stay out of it.  Mind your own business.

Except, it IS our business.  If Israel attacks Iran, America’s warmongering chickenhawks will be champing at the bit to drag us into the middle of it.  You can take that to the bank.

Israel is like that mooching relative that everybody has — defiant, headstrong and needy all at the same time.  “Stay out of my face!  Don’t tell me what to do…Uuhhh, can you help me out with the rent?  I’m a little short this month.  Again.”  “I’m in jail again.  Can you bail me out?”

Someday, maybe, the United States will cut the umbilical cord and free Israel from the tyranny of America’s constant babysitting.  Imagine the pride and self-determination Israel will feel when she can stand on her own, no longer dependent on handouts from the American government.

In the meantime, if there’s ever a war between Israel and Iran:  Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Tucker Carlson and Rudy Giuliani — among other shit-spewing chickenhawks — should be immediately apprehended and sent to the front lines.

If you tried to send any of these "tough wingers (or their followers) to a war zone, you could track them by the wet trail they'd leave behind them.

I hope you're not suggesting that we try and muzzle our convenient pit bull.

Israel is like a good portion of our society, always have their hands out while complaining about it. If you haven't already, suggest you pick up a copy of T.E. Lawrence's (Lawrence of Arabia) book 7 Pillars of Wisdom. A "can't put it down" read that will bring crystal clarity to the Middle East situation.

Cut ties? That's not likely to happen any time soon. Not with a powerful Jewish lobby in congress. It's never about principles. Always about the money remember that.

There's a bit of a difference, Lisa, although you'd be too stupid to notice. The major difference here is that Americans who are being shafted have contributed a GREAT DEAL to the successes of those who are now bending them over and raping them.

Turn off Hannity for a few minutes, and try thinking, if you are even capable. Why on Earth should the American worker continue to see pay and benefits fall, while the American CEO continues to see pauy and bonuses explode ever-skyward? What's the matter with the rich? Don't they appreciate what this country has given them? Why don't they stop being FREELOADERS, and actually PAY THEIR WAY, instead of expecting the gal down at the local Mini-Mart to do all the paying?

JR: LOL. Very true.

Randal: Sometimes I think we're Israel's convenient pit bull.

Mr. C: I haven't read it, but it sounds like a great book idea.

Demeur: I think the Jewish population and Israel are two separate things. Most American Jews -- and most Israelis for that matter -- are against Israel's powercrazed government. American neocons are the main people who are gung ho about Israel, and most of them are anti-Semitic.

JR: Good answer; not that it'll do any good.
