Ben Smith shares a letter signed by 76 Senators essentially declaring that Israel's needs come before the needs of the United States. I noticed several bogus statements designed to make Israel look good.
- Israel continues to be the one true democracy in the Middle East that brings stability to a region where it is in short supply.

- Israel has been a consistent, reliable ally and friend and has helped to advance American interests.

- We recognize that our government and the Government of Israel will not always agree on particular issues in the peace process. But such differences are best resolved amicably and in a manner that befits longstanding strategic allies. We must never forget the depth and breadth of our alliance and always do our utmost to reinforce a relationship that has benefited both nations for more than six decades.

From the first selection, I guess that "stability" can also mean engaging in several local wars, armed incursions and assassinations. From that last two, I ask again: Exactly what has Israel done for America?
