IOW, I would like to see them act in their own REAL interests. But would you, really? Without their political actions based on religious delusion, America would stop supporting Israel.
I could be wrong, but it is my understanding that Israel has a very liberal, democratic and progressive form of government. I would suspect there is less superstition and religious delusion in Israel than in Kansas and Alabama. I should think that, in the long run, the interests of that nation and the interests of the USA and other advanced Western nations are aligned in a sense that transcends current politics and economics.
