Golda, israel

Where are the Phantoms?

The relationship between Israel’s military strength and United States support, technological and financial, has never been so clear to me as it is post-GOLDA. I’ve been reading Oriana Fallaci’s book INTERVIEW WITH HISTORY, where she interviews Meir, Arafat, and Kissinger, among others, and all of them allude to the complexities of the US-Israel connection. As did Ahmadinejad, petulantly, in his Columbia talk. I even overhear people arguing about it at the Civic Center Bart station:

“There are only two countries in the world that have F-14s. You know what they are?”
“The US and Israel.”
