Don't get me wrong here. I don't like Israel. Any country that is set up solely to provide a home for people of its religion (at the exclusion and possibly destruction of anyone else) is not at all deserving of my sympathy. On the other hand, if we (we as in the UN as a whole) abandoned them, they'd get blown to smitherines by their neighbors. Millions of people with no say in anything would die. I'm not sure how that solves anything.
If we support Israel we should also be supporting the rest of the middle east, by supporting Isreal we're helping murder Palestinians who's land was stolen from them. Israel can steal all the land they want, but we shouldn't be supporting them for doing it, that just doesn't make any sense to me... look at these figures:
My problem with Israel is that everyone seems them as a friend to the US, when their own government says they don't need the US (And yet they keep taking the money...), and people see Israel as the "good guys" and Palestine as the "bad guys", I see them both as the bad guys, and we really shouldn't be supporting any of them.
