Why are Americans so infatuated with Israel?
With all the turmoil between Israel and Palestine right now, I've noticed a huge outpouring of support for Israel. This always happens when their conflict sparks back up. Why the infatuation with Israel? They seem like a bunch of corrupt shitbags to me.

Americans aren’t so much, but evangelical Christians are. And the reasons are too idiotic to describe

Yeah. I don't get it either. People get really heated about who you support and why and I just don't care about either.

Let them fight.

The power vacuum created by the loss of Israel as a state in the ME would allow multiple bad actors to have too much influence in the region.

I assume you are joking about the Christianity part.

You know Jews are not Christians, right? At least the overwhelming majority are not.

No shite. My dad always says "we need to be a friend and ally to Israel"

What the frick for? Do they do anything for us? Are they constantly stirring up shit?

I honestly think this is a big ploy to keep us involved in the middle east. These people have been fighting over this land since ancient times, fricking let em

re: Why are Americans so infatuated with Israel?
I don't have a reason for the Israel-firsters

But for the generally pro Israel in the Israel-Palestinian conflict:

-Israel is far closer to western norms in valuing life. Meaning Israel doesn't condone honor killings generally, Israel doesn't use children or innocents as shields, etc. etc.

-Israel is flawed, but has certainly looked out for US interests more than Palestinian entities/governance. And more commonly, Israel's interests and foes align with the US more than they do w/ Palestine.

-The obvious judeo-Christian shared history and interest in preserving control of historic sites/landmarks, etc.

-General disdain for Israel by interests I despise (UN, lots of the international community, etc.)

They shell each other all the time. I find it entertaining. It's cool to see the iron dome and imagine what super secret defense we have.
