What has Israel done for the US?
It has made the US support it, which destroyed the economy. In other words: nothing! The world is the way it is because of our individual contributions to it, not in spite of them. Israel would need less aid if US weren't arming its enemies. Were the US not so determined to arm Israel's neighbors, it would not need to provide so much to aid for Israel's defense. Of course, maybe the US likes maintaining this dependency relationship so it can maintain its influence. It helped in military intelligence

They are not neutral withing the Palestinian - Israeli conflict. They use the UN Security Council Veto whenever a Resolution against Israel comes up. They have never condemned any Israeli statement or action. (MORE)
It's not necessarily good for the US, but Israel is located in an area where there are no other democracies and is very near the oil. The USA does not like conversing with countries that are not democracies; thus, Israel is sort of an envoy for the USA and the USA supplies Israel with about three bi…llion dollars to spend on American made weapons and other goods a year. _________second opinion___________ (i do not think i should sush the other guy because i do not agree with him) Israel is a democracy and in the middle east that doesn't exist.

Israel attempts to protect herself against terrorist organizations. Gaza is left alone by Israel, except when the terrorists in Gaza attack Israel. For example, today terrorists in Gaza launched over 50 missiles into Israel. When this happens, Israel usually tries to destroy the missile factories.
Answer . The significance of Israel to the US is that they protect US interests in the middle east. They also share and sell the United States advanced weapon systems that are made in Israel. Israel is also a super power and regional power and nuclear power in the middle east so being a ally to a… strong country like Israel is important for the United States because they can help defend the United States like they are currently aiding them in their fight against terrorism.

The US voted in the affirmative for Israel's statehood and encouraged others to do so. U.S. military aid to Israel did not in fact begin until after the events of the war of Yom Kippur. Prior to that, from its birth until Yom Kippur, all the U.S. gave was recognition, and "moral support," however… the idea that Israel only won the wars because of U.S. support is an Arab myth. The truth is, historically, the U.S. has had closer diplomatic ties with the Arab world than with Israel, and Israel did not in fact become a "friend" of the U.S. until it became friends with Egypt, a country the U.S. still considers more important in the region than Israel. Israel was able to procure weapons, because of the large number of wealthy Jews outside of the country, who provided money to buy arms, as well as illicit black market deals. Additionally, many weapons were "home made" from scrap. The truth is, the Arab armies were actually much better equipped, and better trained, especially King Hussein's army which was trained by the British of all people. All the U.S. gave, was recognition, in 1948, and nothing else. The truth is Truman was prejudiced against Ashkenazi Jews, if you wish, you can visit the white house's website, and read his memoirs, there he reveals what he thought of "the Jews." Then there was also obsolete military equipment, that Israel was able to buy at a "bargain price." Logistically speaking, the truth is the Arabs should have won; it is true, that numerically, the army defending Israel was twice as large as the Arab one but see, half of them were women, and most were not even on the front lines. American public and government policy towards Israel did not change until the late 1970's, by which point, all the old prejudices between the various shades of white, which inhabited this country, finally faded away, additionally, there was also the influence of Christian fundamentalism here in the U.S. which also had its roots in the late 1970's. By the 1980's, all of the old stereotypes and prejudices against Europeans not of Anglican cultural background, was finally gone, and, the rise of Christian fundamentalism, combined with the fact that the Ashkenazim were "white like us" helped change the U.S. public mind regarding Israel. As prejudice towards Ashkenazi Jews fell away, and Christian fundamentalism rose, and as the old European prejudices were discarded and all whites began to see themselves as "American," pretty soon, on the will of the American public alone, NOT the U.S. government, Israel began receiving billions. There is no conspiracy to control the U.S. public, nor is there a large "Jewish plot to use the media to brainwash Americans." If that were true, then the U.S. would have given millions to Israel in 1948. Again, read Harry S. Truman's memoirs, look up the logistics of the Israeli war of independence; they were poorly equipped, and worst of all for them, the Hollywood industry only gave them moral support. There is some prejudice against American Jews in Israel, because American Jewry was "not there for us" in 1948. Prejudiced American society and all, as powerful as they were in Hollywood at that time, many Israelis feel, American Jews did not do enough. The best they did, was 5 minute newsreels saying "Israel's in trouble" but that was it. (MORE)
Quite simple, Israel is only in the news when the world thinks it is doing something wrong, it is currently not taking any drastic measures to defend itself so the media will lay low and wait until some israeli minister faces charges or a palestinian family will be evicted from their supposed home b…ecause of (ahem) political reasons of course.

When we searched on-line for the area of Israel, we found sources that list 8,367 square miles and other sources that list 7,992 square miles. We suspect that the difference may consist of things like Gaza, the West Bank, Golan Heights, etc. We really don't want to get into all of that right n…ow, mainly because it has very little to do with the answer to this question. We'll give you two numbers for each item below. The first one corresponds to the smaller area of Israel ... 7,992 sq mi ... and the number in parentheses is what you get if Israel is actually the larger number ... 8,367 sq mi. -- The USA is 474.7 times (453.5) times the size of Israel. -- Israel is 5.2 times (5.4 times) the size of Rhode Island. -- Israel is 1.44 times (1.51 times) the size of Connecticut. -- Israel is 8.3% (4.1%) smaller than New Jersey. -- Israel is 24.3% (20.7%) smaller than Massachusetts.

Yes, completely. 911 was notOsama Bin Laden it was Mussahd ( i probably spelled it wrong) go on google videos and type in Loose Change. Israel was and probably still is killing innocent women, children, men, animals, and foods in Gaza for NO REASON!! They also bombed Lebanon not to long ago. Israel …needs to back off and Obama needs to realize that ISRAEL CONTROLS US! He needs to take a stand for our country and the Middle Eastern Arab countries.

Answer Because all Israel wants to do is keep their freedom and their country, but other coutries want to take it over and bomb it. Plus, the US is in the war as a peace keeper. Answer The US was the first country to recognise the State of Israel in 1948. There is a sizable Jewish population in t…he US, Jews have been part of the population since the early days of the US but this increased significantly towards the end of the 19th century when Jews fled European persecution. There is a major Jewish vote and influence in US politics deriving from a highly politicised community. The Jewish voters have the highest % participant in voting of any ethnic or religious group in the US. The Jewish population numbers around 6 1/2 million (roughly around the same size as Israel), Jews account for about 2% of the US population yet deliver 15% of the Senators. The key States in electing the President all have significant Jewish populations. Prominent Jewish Americans include the last two Chairman of the Federal Reserve. (MORE)
Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. Israel is an open, progressive, multicultural society which does not through governmental policies oppress women, gays or religious minorities. Israel has many Arab citizens who vote, are represented in Parliament (Knesset) and are business owners or …otherwise productive members of the socioeconomic fabric of the country. It is also a society which has been in the forefront of technological advancement, medical breakthroughs and humanitarian efforts including refugee absorption and the provision of medical/surgical care not only to indigeneous Bedouin populations but also globally in places like Haiti. Israel has been a partner with the US in protecting American lives through the sharing of intelligence. (MORE)

Answer 1 In the Israel -- Palestine conflict, the US is neutral on the side of Israel. The United States is trying to get Israel and Palestine to reach a peace agreement between each other. Answer 2 The United States supports both Israel and Palestine. The United States is also prepared to sup…port and aide any Arab country (like Egypt) that is willing to trade violence and antagonism for peace.

Answer 1 -- Since 2001, the US has spent several trillion dollars and several thousand lives in our attempt to build nations in the Middle East, that have stable democratic representative governments, equal rights for all citizens, and little or no threat to their stability from insurgent forces, …and are friendly toward the US. It must be pretty important for the US to have some of those in that part of the world. -- There is one nation in the Middle East that built itself at no expense to the US, has a stable, representative, democratic government, has equal rights for all citizens written into its law, has had no threat to its stability from within and several orderly transfers of government since it was founded more than 60 years ago, and is friendly toward the US. It's Israel. Does it make sense to say that Israel has made itself what we would so dearly love to see in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Libya, and Egypt, but it's not important to us ? Answer 2 The United States support for the State of Israel comes from a variety of sources. Israel has cooperated with the United States on diplomatic issues, military and intelligence exchanges, large amounts of trade, and significant technological investment.

The United States supports both Israel, Egypt, and Palestine. The United States is also prepared to support and aide any Arab country (like Egypt) that is willing to trade violence and antagonism for peace. The United States support for the State of Israel is the strongest of the three comes from… a variety of sources.

In addition there a numerous Americans who support the State of Israel because of religious convictions on top of the already-listed reasons. Egypt is the second-largest individual recipient of American Aid (after Israel) and this money has gone to fund the Egyptian Army primarily as well as infrastructure maintenance.

The United States gains a sphere of influence both military and economic in a strategic region of the Middle East. In general, Israel is a voice of support for most US actions, particularly in the UN. In addition to the strong trade and military relationships, many Americans support Israel for Bi…blical reasons, believing Israel to be the holy land. The Old Testament, followed by both Judaism and Christianity, teaches that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. Also, by supporting Israel, America gains stability and a sense of control in the Middle East. Nations that might otherwise attack Israel think twice when they know that they could face retribution from the US. However, America also gain a share of responsibility for any actions that Israel takes, or positions that Israel and its politicians espouse. Although Israel is often a focus of attacks that might otherwise be focused on other nations, often groups attempt to target the power supporting Israel, which is the US. (MORE)
Israel receives aid from the US in the form of grants and loan guarantees, just as Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, India, Russia, Ukraine, West Bank and Gaza, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and others do.
Yes. Israel has an extradition treaty with the US and has had itsince 1963. As for whether Israel will extradite any particularIsraeli citizen depends on the arguments made by the US government(as is typical of other extradition treaties).
Israel was established by Jews, and has been predominantly Jewish throughout history (with the exception of the 1st -19th Centuries) but it has always had citizens of many religions.
Because the U.S. supports all democracies. Furthermore, outside of Israel, the U.S. has the largest Jewish population in the world.
The only permanently stationed troops are at the US Embassy. There are some units (typically special operations) who rotate through and cross train with Israeli forces.
Diplomatically: 1948, one of the first countries (along with USSR) to recognize the state. Militarily: 1973 war. The 1948 war involved arms imports from the Eastern Bloc, the 1956 war was a "team" effort with Britain and France, and the 1967 war used French-made aircraft and weapons.
Israel-United States relations are an important factor in the United States government's overall policy in the Middle East, and Congress has placed considerable importance on the maintenance of a close and supportive relationship. The main expression of Congressional support for Israel has been fore…ign aid. Since 1985, it has provided nearly $3 billion in grants annually to Israel, with Israel being the largest annual recipient of American aid from 1976 to 2004 and the largest cumulative recipient of aid since World War II. Congress has monitored the aid issue closely along with other issues in bilateral relations, and its concerns have affected Administrations' policies. Almost all U.S. aid to Israel is now in the form of military assistance, while in the past it also received significant economic assistance. Strong congressional support for Israel has resulted in Israel receiving benefits not available to other countries. (MORE)

Like most countries in Europe, Africa, and Asia, Israel's public utility mains supply is 220 volts AC, 50 Hz. Any "foreign current converter" that you buy in the US works in Israel. Many portable/laptop computers and mobile device chargers are now supplied with "wide-mouth" power supplies …that work on any voltage between 105 - 240 volts, which gets you through most anywhere in the world without a converter. The only catch is that there are many different physical plugs/sockets, so you probably still need a plug- converter just to make sure that your prongs fit in their receptacles.
