on Hate; Israeli Attitudes towards US (Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich, USA, 02/29/12 4:28 am)

JE commented on Robert Whealey's post of February 28:  "News reports this
AM inform us that Israel has reserved the right to attack Iran's nuclear
facilities with no prior notice to the US. Putting aside humanitarian,
economic and strategic issues for the time being (though we should return to
them), isn't this an overt Israeli nose-thumbing of Pres. Obama?"

This has been the Israeli attitude towards every US president since 1947.

Nothing makes this more clear than a book entitled The Passionate
Attachment: America's Involvement with Israel, 1947 to the Present
by George W. Ball and Douglas B. Ball. They claim that three presidents at
least attempted to resist (Eisenhower, Carter, Bush Senior), but they
ultimately caved in. Incidentally, as some may know, the senior author of
the book, George W. Ball, a former diplomat, was Undersecretary of State
(Economic and Agricultural Affairs) in two US administrations, as well as US
Ambassador to the United Nations in '68. Hardly someone whose words can be
dismissed or be called anti-American. They are not the only American
statesmen who speak of this relationship in those terms.

Things are worse today than they were in 1992.

At the risk of sounding "anti-American" and raising the ire of some in the
Forum, it is up to any individual who claims to love America to 1) become
informed, 2) make sure they inform others.
