Dear Sogood, I never said that Israel is dictatorial regime. I am talking about Eygpt, Jordan, Saudia Arbia, and other middle eastern countries. Why US support this dictatorial regimes.

Now lets take the case of Pakistan which is not a middle east country. US has always supported dictator over their. US relationship has always been best when there was a dictator in Pakistan. And worst when there was elected Government. Question is Why.
