And these are newspapers ...
Pick one up and read it sometime.
Since you won't do it I'll tell you that, in short, it's about having an ally who is surrounded by Countries that want to eliminate it ... and those same Countries want to eliminate yours and mine.

Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
Oh, and as for where I got it...just read Travis007 response. Which, of course, you already did because you liked it. So it's REALLY funny that you're still asking where I get that from, even though I was asking a legitimate question to someone who wasn't you.
I already answered it. It's not my fault you didn't bother to read it and it's certainly not my fault you don't understand how quoting works.Can you answer the post instead of deflecting...for once.
I could not have made my own point better. Thank you for clearly defining my point. Have yourself a great day.
It's not your "values" which lead you to the conclusion it's okay to criticize one and not another. It's your politics. You're doing nothing more than toeing a party platform.
A person with TRUE values, not influenced by childish partisanship, would say it's okay to criticize ANY government leader. Or they would say you show respect to every government leader. But not you. You say it's okay to criticize one but not another. Cloaking your obvious choice of distinction under the term "value system" doesn't change what you actually use to determine who can be criticized and who cannot.
...you're right guys, obviously the idea it's okay to insult our President and not the right wing leader of Israel has NOTHING to do with partisan politics. Not at all.

What I take issue with is the idea that criticizing a leader of a foreign country makes one anti that country, even as those very same people who take umbrage at the idea of foreign leader criticism seem to be the first to level the most hateful remarks about our leader. So my question was that if criticizing Israeli leaders makes one anti-Israel, does that mean criticizing our American leader makes one anti-America?
My point is fairly obvious, which is that people who seem to take the greatest offense about criticism of Netanyahu are generally just partisan hacks, who don't really care about the fact they are our "ally", they just seem the opportunity for childish partisan attacks. But it disturbs me a little to see the alliance of some of these people is seemingly greater towards leaders of foreign countries than the leader of our own country.
I don't care who the President is or from what party he comes. I may not agree with what the President does, but he is still our President and our greatest loyalty should always remain with our country and our leaders. Sometimes I think partisan hacks get so caught up in their partisanship, they tend to forget which side they truly are on.
