93. I agree the language is used for multiple countries...
In fact, it was used very recently by Obama towards my country when he visited here.

I suspect the difference when it comes to Israel, is that it's kind of hard to see what benefits are in it for the US. In the case of Australia, the US is concerned with China's growing influence and were busting to station thousands of Marines here. I don't see that same sort of thing with Israel. Plus while most folk are aware of diplomatic speak being just that, some folk grab and run the bestest friend and closest ally thing when it comes to Israel...
