Very recent events include Israel receiving two-thirds of a billion dollars from the United States to install Iron Dome; Israel promptly withdrew from the "two-state" negotiations. And called Sec. of State John Kerry a stinker for saying Israeli artillery trajectories were "imprecise." After killing 1600+ Palestinians while suffering fewer than 100 deaths themselves, Israel's munitions were replenished by the United States.  

Furthermore, by sending another quarter of a billion dollars or so, the world's largest exporter of arms helped the world's third largest touch up Iron Dome. Our strategic arms treaty with the USSR allowed anti-missiles over precisely two cities—Moscow and Washington DC—now Israel also belongs to this "100th of 1 percent" club.
