Israel as a vassal state of the US

Reader comment on item: U.S. to Israel: You Decide Nukes in Iran, We Decide Bedrooms in Jerusalem

Submitted by Regina Daly (United States), Jul 8, 2009 at 15:16

Actually, Israel is a vassal state of the US, under the protection of the USA in every way. But even if we use the term "vassal" in a more contemporary way, the way you have,as a pejorative, Israel is an ungrateful and recalcitrant state, grabbing millions of American dollars at every offer, then testily refusing our modest demands aimed at peace in the region.

Biden's comments regarding Israel and its sovereignty do, indeed, contradict the positions set forth by the President and Secretary of State. ... Biden says things out of line all the time, However the observations you cite are not ones I would find elsewhere so I'm glad you point them out..
