There is no question that Israel is our friend and ally. It is in our interest and it's morally right. We send aid to countries that are much less loyal if at all. I don't understand the hate that I see in the other comments. Israel Has never carried out an act of terrorism against us or anyone else.. I see comments about them being Apartheid and land thieves. Nothing can be further from the truth. That land along with much of the surrounding area belongs to them. Other people are on their land.
