... that on October 23, forty years ago, 220 U.S. Marines, 18 sailors, and 3 soldiers were killed when the Beirut peacekeepers' barracks was attacked by a suicide bomber. The Mossad knew the attack was imminent, but gave no warning, claiming afterward that, "...it's not our job to babysit the Americans."

On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Liberty was flying the American flag, had no armaments, and so was utterly defenseless. The Israeli's had full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it.

There are quite a few similar incidents of the Israeli military behaving badly. Loyalty to allies is supposed to be reciprocal, especially if an ally is the single biggest recipient of U.S. financial and military aid. But attacking innocent American Jews because someone takes issue with Netanyahu's Right-wing policies is the work of cowardly, brain-dead swine that deserve no mercy whatsoever. C'mon, guys.
