"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Time Enough For Love, by Robert Heinlein
Oh yeah, its because a bunch of idiotic Christians need the Jews to occupy Israel so the end of the world can happen. What a good use of resources.
because they're our man in the middle east, they will do whatever the US tells them to, and act militarily on our behalf around the region. rabid atheist types make the mistake to assume that the US supporting israel actually has anything to do with religion, thats just how its sold to the plebeians.
