MEI: America may reconsider commitment to Israel


America may reconsider its commitment to an Israeli government that is increasingly acting to please the radical right, according to new analytics on the website of the Washington-based Middle East Institute.


For decades, Israel has served as a pillar of the Middle East policy U.S.A. Successive White House administrations have been unwavering in their commitment to Israel, adjusting their policies and laws to match.

They were especially concerned that Israel maintain a qualitative military superiority over other states in the region, doing this not only by providing generous military assistance, but also by limiting the corresponding supplies to neighboring states. But Israeli flirting with the right risks rethinking the entire concept of American aid.

The basis of the United States' exclusive commitment to the defense of Israel is that the latter is a bastion of democratic ideals and political stability in the Middle East and therefore deserves support and protection. However, as the right becomes increasingly dependent on the priority of Jewish identity over democratic ideals, the very basis of US defense policy toward Israel is being called into question.

- says the publication.

The right has made significant strides, the most important of which is the passage of the nation-state law, which explicitly defines Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people. However, the demographic reality is that 21% of the Israeli population is Arab, and the Israeli Arab birth rate is historically higher than the Jewish birth rate.

The publication opined that if legislation prioritizing Jewish identity becomes a litmus test for local politicians, Israel's democratic foundation could begin to crack.
Also, as violence and unrest rises in the Palestinian territories, so does Israel's harsh response.

The US must support Israel's right to ensure its own security. However, if this assistance is used to demonstrate toughness in favor of an increasingly radical electorate, the escalation will, as expected, draw the ire of other US allies in the region.

- the article says.

In particular, they talk about the importance of allies in the Arab world, whose opinion will be difficult to ignore.

    MEI: America may reconsider commitment to Israel

    For decades, Israel has served as a pillar of the United States' Middle East policy.

    - Oh, yes, Israel is, to some extent, a kind of analogue of Taiwan in the "Asian Far East" - it is a kind of pebble in the foundation - it is worth knocking it out - and the entire Middle East will collapse under the Islamic world (and under the radical Islamic world - including ) ! - It's the same with Taiwan - it's worth removing Taiwan - and the entire Asian East (and with it the entire region - half the world) will collapse under China!
    - It is unlikely - all this will suit the United States!

    I don’t know what Israel angered America with, but something tells me that our runners “worked” there. With their intelligence, but do not provide "help" ....

      IrinaYou don't have to make anyone angry at all. Example. No one judged Japan for the atrocities committed in World War II. Her participation in that war began to be counted from another year, so thirty-five million dead Chinese were victims of the Sino-Japanese war. And so that the crimes of fanatics do not surface because of calls for just retribution, it was committed sacrifice, in Greek - the Holocaust. Atomic bombs were dropped on two peaceful cities in Japan, and the crimes of fanatics are not discussed, psychology.

      PS Holocaust, translated from Greek - sacrifice. It is in this sense that the word was used. The meaning was changed after the advent of Israel. Now it never occurs to anyone that everything can be a victim of the Zionists. This is the genocide of the Jews.

    I'm not going to justify Israel, but by simply supporting the Nazi states of the Baltic states, and even more so Ukraine, the United States is unhappy with the right in Israel, this is really Washington schizophrenia.

    The substitution of concepts is the essence of the Anglo-Saxons. And the Anglo-Saxons lie under the Jews. So, as they paid tribute to the Jews, they will continue to pay. The Jews worked with Hitler to the last. And the fact that Hitler hated the Jews does not negate the fact that the Jews used him to cleanse their blood. The Jews themselves call the Holocaust simply the pruning of dry branches. Therefore, one should not be surprised that those who pay and support Bandera in Ukraine live in peace in Israel. And the fact that the jester is Jewish by nationality. Because Israel is a purely racist state. And racism and Nazism are essentially the same thing.

    How can America reconsider anything regarding Israel if the decisions made by Washington are shaped in Tel Aviv? Well, this is of course hyperbole, but in the modern United States, financial circles that are closely connected with Israel determine power)
