/me snickers at what Learner said
heh heh, I see you're a bit more informed than many too.
According to the Bible, God will keep his promise to Abraham and the jews shall always have a nation.
Isreal kicks arabic ass man. It's not just our aid that's keeping them afloat. They've got one hella well trained army. I did a bit of historical research and this is what I've found:"On May 15  the armies of Egypt, Transjordan (now Jordan), Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq joined Palestinian and other Arab guerrillas who had been fighting Jewish forces since November 1947. The war now became an international conflict, the first Arab-Israeli War." http://www.palestinehistory.com/wartext.htm
Did ya catch that? 6 Arab nations all attacked Israel the moment it was founded. And Israel beat their asses.
Another interesting thing I found out... It was the BRITISH the originally marched into palestine and began the proceedings to make Israel a seperate state.
Seems the US isn't alone in "policing" the world.
