It always amazes me how many Americans think that Israel is controlling the US Government. Fact is folks, Israel is the only stable, democratic society in the mid east. You may think that even though they have been the target of upteen attacks by missiles, mortars, etc on their populace that they somehow are the aggressors.
They're not stupid. They know American foreign policy can change on a dime. Israel isn't playing poker as much as they're playing wait-and-see. No matter who the runs the U.S, Israel know that they need a friend in the White House. What would you do when a neighbor, Iran, is trying to build nukes and has publicly stated their intent is to wipe you off the face of the earth?
Also, mintinfo is a bigoted, f**kin idiot
