Our Staunchest Ally
September 24, 2012 | 10:44 AM

In your editorial last week you refer to Israel as "our staunchest ally". It occurs to me to wonder, however, how our centuries-long friends throughout the world, most particularly Canada and other members of the British Commonwealth, along with our more recent NATO colleagues, would react to this apparent slight to them.

It is abundantly clear that most of the Middle East countries that "hate the US" do so because of our unconditional support of Israel's every move, yet you suggest the situation could only improve by our clinging ever tighter to Israel. Please explain this rationale.
