The top U.S. military officer says the relationship between the American and Israeli militaries is especially relevant while Mideast nations are steeped in unrest.
Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed the instability in Egypt with Israeli President Shimon Peres on Monday. He said the American-Israeli alliance is "something we both depend on."
This is a repeating pattern we see in Israel. Behave as they want to, steal Palestinian lands, defy the UN, invade their neighbors, then demand special protections because they are hated.
