    The US has a binary political mentality when it comes to law and policy, so where’s the shock that the country has a binary political mentality when it comes to Israel?

    Well its changing, albeit slowly. Israel and US interests are diverging. Israel is becoming a rogue nuclear religious state, like Pakistan.

    “becoming”? Israel hasn’t got the A.Q.Khan network, but it proliferated nuclear weapons design techniques and enrichment technology to South Africa, before South Africa shut down its program. You might want to read about the “Vela incident”…

    For some reason, Israel has gotten away with what North Korea and Pakistan were severely punished for.

    Addendum to previous: It appears Israel’s arsenal includes some enhanced radiation warheads (“neutron bombs”) you know, the kind that mostly just kill people and leave real estate intact? The weapons that were so nasty that the US backed away from fielding them.
