The unthinkable seems to be happening. Could it be that the US is putting its interests before those of Israel?
Washington had promised Israel a substantial increase in its financial support to bolster it against Iran.
But US officials decided to amend their pledge because of escalating costs, including the need to spend $750 million (£375 million) to fly thousands of armoured troop carriers to Iraq to protect troops against Iranian-made roadside bombs.
I wonder if Israel’s amen corner will now start demanding that the US withdraw from Iraq?
