  •  Since the Global War on Terror (0+ / 0-)

    is our #1 foreign policy issue, and since our special relationship with Israel frames and defines our relationship with Islam generally and Islamic fundamentalists specifically, I feel it is fair to say the US/Israel axis is the linchpin in our foreign policy.

      I didn't realize that the Israelis were the key to our relationships with South America, the Far East, the Indian Subcontinent, Africa and Europe.

      Man it nefarious how those Israelis are just everywhere. How do they do it?  (/snark)

        The "Far East" includes Indonesia, the most populous of Islamic nations, and nominally includes the Philippines, which also has an Islamic population.  Africa includes Somalia and many other Islamic nations.  The "Indian sub-continent includes Pakistan and Kashmir last time I looked. Europe holds many Islamic populations.  Our relationships with all of these is influenced by our continuing military and other support of an Israeli regime which continues to permit settlement on disputed lands.

        South America - we've pretty much managed to fuck that up on our own by supporting right wing despots whenever possible.

        Take off the blinders.

    •  Nonsense, bobdevo. It is OIL (0+ / 0-)

      that defines our relationships with the Middle East.

      Bin Laden was specially incensed by our support of the Saudi Arabia and Egyptian regimes. they only took up the Palestinian cause late when he saw how it could be used.
