The history of the US/Israel relationship has been very close since Zionists realized that that truth does not influence public policy without education and lobbying. I support AIPAC because the tiny country of Israel needs the support of the one super-power, US. However, many US Presidents, Democrats and Republicans have gone against our national interests and have not been supportive of Israel. I believe that Israel keeps us safe here in the US. Israel is the first defense of the west against Islamism. We need to continue to work hard to secure and ensure continued support for Israel. Senators Menendez and Booker are Israel's friends. We must support them.
