Because the value of the dollar is pegged to oil, Israel is a geopolitical ally located in an important strategic area of the middle east that is necessary to maintain for our long term objective of securing the regions oil resources. Control of the oil means more countries are forced to trade oil in dollars thus boosting the currencies value across the world. Plus, the western economies depend on oil for it's growth becausethey have been developed off the back of oil in the past. Most world economies are for that matter. Oil is such an incredibly important economic resource that taking it away from a country would likely cause a major collapse until it had time to re-invent itself. For long term security and stability we need to get hold of the oil.

Also, don't understate the power of being close with the Jewish community. Their ties and power in international banking is immense and it's better to have them on your side. As horrific as what is happening to the palestinians, and it is indeed horrific. It's difficult to cut ties because of how powerful an ally they realy are.

idk you tell me

Best Answer

I think it will happen naturally as alternative fuel sources become mainstream - like Tesla motors, which is promising.

End support for Israel? That will never happen. The US and Canada are firm allies with Israel, not to mention the substantial Jewish American population (surpasses the population of Israel itself) that would never allow that. Israel and The West have an enemy in common too, so it's useful to have a relationship.

Israel and the west do have a common enemy which happen to be thier sycopatic leaders barack and benjiman, instigators of world war 3.

*Psychopathic.

The thing is, America has an overwhelming influence in the actions of Israel. Israel receives over 3 billion/year in military aid from the United States, so in a sense, Israel's actions = America's actions.

Perhaps you are more at odds with your own government's actions. For that, I don't blame you.

I've a feeling that there are a lot of complex business arrangements that would rule that out as an option.

Best Answer

Israel is not a necessary ally. Their economy is small, they are much hated and they do little for us but cause problems. They need us. We tolerate them.
