At a time when the U.S. Israel alliance is being questioned, Caroline Glick clearly enunciates why a strong, allied Israel is of great benefit to U.S. interests in the region, including regional stability.

A brief summary states:
* Democracy in Israel means that its alliance with America reflects the will of the Israeli people, remaining constant regardless of who is power in Jerusalem. * As the US and Israel share the same regional foes, Israel’s successes redound to the US’s benefit. * Israel remains the US’s most reliable source for accurate intelligence on America’s enemies in the region. * By providing military assistance to Israel, America is showing all states and non-state actors in the greater Middle East that it is a trustworthy ally. * Today’s regional balance of power—in which the moderates have the upper hand over the radicals—is predicated on a strong Israel.
