You're making the case that Israel is America's most useful ally in the region and provides the US with useful intel.

You need to make that case.
Why not?It is unlikely that the US would pull out of israeli affairs but remain active in the region. It simply not possible.
Who says Israel is going to face a concerted attack? The major players in the region have said they would make peace with an Israel based on the 1967 borders.Peace between Israel and the other states is in the US's best economic intrest. That three billion dollars isn't shit compared to what would happen to the worlds economies if another war broke out in the ME. If you shift the current balance of power that is excactly what is going to happen. Israel is not going to just sit back while a consorted effort to attack mounts against them.
Wow, a vocal denouncement with nothing whatsoever behind it - and Europeans are accused of being appeasers.They have pressed the issue with a vocal denoucement. Isn't that the primary grievance with the US veto? As I said before, the US does not want the UN to apply pressure to any one side since the goal is to bring each party to the table.
In this situation Israel is the aggressor - building towns in someone elses country and 'protecting' them with military force.
How could it be appropriate to apply pressure to the Palestinians exactly?
