They almost more of a western nation than we are. They are usually the one being attacked by terrorists so they fight back and everybody gets mad at them. Israel is a country that we can have military benifits, economical benifits, cultural benifits, etc.
Because Israel is a very good friend and ally of the United States. As mentioned above, they are a stable, democratic country that is surrounded by hateful rogue nations that want to wipe Israel off the map. We allied ourselves with Israel not long after they declared statehood in 1949.
In WWII, 6,000,000 Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis, and the remaining Jews vowed to return to their traditional homeland and establish themselves a nation, that what happened to them in Europe would never happen again.
Well back before 1945 England occupied Israel then gave Israel back to all Israelis as their homeland. Ever since that America, England and Europe have been willing to help Israel to ensure that all Israelis keep Israel as their homeland.
Because they are a free country with a great leader. We promised friendship since they became an official country once again. That land has ALWAYS been theirs. I for one am glad they have their homeland back and wish them all the best. Stay safe Israel. There are crazy people trying to kill you. You are always in my prayers!
