MSNBC got a retired admiral to come on & discuss US ties to Israel. He said the US & Israel have “profound cultural affinities.” If that’s true, & it probably isn’t, it’s only because so many Israeli politicians & citizens were born & raised in the US. You can’t really call extermination of the native population, racism, & apartheid ‘cultural affinities’. The only affinity the US has with Israel is as a military fortress against democracy in the Middle East.
