The US has given more aid to Israel than all other countries. The US has asked them to stop building on Palestinian land. They have returned the favor by thumbing their nose at us for decades. With great courage Obama finally stood up and said enough. Israel is the tail that wags the dog because our politicians are afraid of AIPAC. It is no wonder that many in the Middle East see us as hypocrites their-by are willing to see us on the battle field resulting in many American casualties.
