This has got to be one of the worst thought out disastrous ideas next to the "peace talks". What idiots!!! And publishing it???? They think that……HOLD ON!!! They ARE NOT THINKING – But do they ever?????
While I totally disagree with the appraisal of the US soldiers -among whom I served for 6 years- learning that the US has a plan for the "security of the West Bank" doesn't reassure me, especially after I've been told, for the past 10 years, that the US had a plan to prevent Iran from developing uranium enrichment, for eradicating Al Qaida and the Talibans, for insuring democracy in Afghanistan, Irak, Libya, Egypt, and Syria. With a friend like the White House (and especially the State Department), who needs enemies?

Don’t insult the USA or our military with your comments. Should you not like the USA; then quit begging for our money and rely on your own.
Israel will survive n thrive without the USA. The USA will not survive without Israel. That is God’s Promised Land to the Jews. God promised Abraham, Isaac n Jacob “I will make of u a great nation” “I will Bless those who bless u n Curse those who curse who”. God is the same yesterday, today n FOREVER. Israel is FOREVER.
Thing is, the Palestinians will get their state, Israel will be kept from patrolling along the valley, USA will do it instead, then after a series of attacks on US personnel, the Americans will pull out, like they did in Beirut. Then Israel will be nobbled, it wont be able to guard the borders, the Islamist will flock in and Israel will have to invade, bringing the Ire and the world powers and international criticism. Bibi, on your ramparts, I have appointed watchmen and THEY AINT AMERICAN SOLDIERS……
What's this new Idea of US Troops in Israel to guard the West Bank or, is it for the Security of the USA. Israel is quite capable to shoulder it's own problem. Now were the USA looking to give some work to a Retired General, they can easily send them to Syria where the civilians have been taking a good bashing. And better still what about Lebanon? The USA can surely use their skill over there by the Border in Lebanon. But surely not Israel.
One fellow say do not say anything about the US, or our army. Its enough that you want our money with a begging Bowl. The Money of the USA is not backed by Gold, they just print money as they go along. They are presently up to their eyeballs in death by over 18 Trillion Dollar's. And this is worrying China, as they would like to dump the Dollar as a Trading Currency. So kindly please tell me where have the US Army been outstanding. Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Pakistan, Vietnam. Poor young American lads coming home in Body bags, and also many of the lads from other countries being sent home in bags from Afghanistan. The Taliban only fighting with machine guns and Rocket propelled explosives. Against the Us Army, Air force and Navy positioned in the Arabian sea. Not to mention the Drones. Money down the drain, and death by the thousands. Taliban, al Qaieda still a threat,
We have nobody to trust but G-d. But till we Jews get the massage, the whole world suffers.

Relying on the Obama administration for any part of Israel's "security" is wishful thinking. The man is unreliable and doesn't keep his word. I say that as someone who believed him and voted for him in the first election. He is right up there with Carter, Clinton, and Harding as a great president.
The obama admin is community organizing. That's basically his mode of operation and all he ever does. He has no clue that the Muslim culture doesn't appreciate community organizers and they would probably never accept Americans in "their" stolen land any more than they'd accept Israelis. An infidel is an infidel.

Israel is small enough geographically and smart enough collectively to create an automated, defense network of drones and other defensive "structures". Let's face it. The US system is bloated and eventually it will run out of resources to fuel its own defensive needs. Israel could make a defensive system that's cheaper, more efficient, and quicker to react to a threat. While Israeli soldiers are among the best in the world, they're limited in number. Eventually, the ants and termites will start pouring into the house again, and against vastly superior numbers, every drop of Israeli blood will have to go a long way…as it always has. Anyways, it's time to create the "golem defense network".
Eve Folley Dombai…Israel is God's promised land to the Jews? There are ten more tribes that God made that promise to that most people think are "lost". Benjamin was swallowed up by Judah. Those ten tribes are not lost. Most of the Christian Nations i.e. Caucasian Nations make up those supposedly lost ten Hebrew tribes. Israel is NOT just for the tribe of Judah, but for all the tribes that make up Israel.
