  The beginning of this article has a vaguely, no, clearly unpleasant tone about it. The US government does not "suck up" to Israel. The US is Israel's boss. I will leave aside whether Jeremy Salt has issues about Jews. But he clearly has unfounded illusions in US imperialism. If all Israeli soldiers had on US military uniforms, would their behavior towards Palestinians be distinguishable from the US miitary's treatment of Iraqis or Afghans? The only real difference is that in Iraq and Afghanistan the US doesn't say "We're moving in and you're moving out." They already did that here, in a much more brutal way than anythng Israel has done.
