I don't know where I first heard it...
... but it seems to me that Israel has become the class slut of the international community. Everyone wants what we have to offer in private, but would rather not be seen or associated with us - in fact they treat us like dirt - in public.
It's about time that Israel muster enough self respect to just say no to anyone who treats us differently by 'day' and by 'night'.
You want a booty call of arms, technology or intelligence? Go call one of your Arab buddies... although the only thing their military technology has been proven good for so far is target practice.

That only works when the "slut" has enough self-confidence to demand better.

No no no no no!
The United States is the First Class Slut, Israel is merely the class tramp. Especially in Europe. The European governments have NO problem with their people slamming the US as a bunch of arrivista whores, inbreds, vulgarians, closet fascist-imperialists, overweight criminals and sexfiend puritans; heck, we’re one big blemish on civilization and if it weren’t for us and our corrupt venal leaders (and our daemonic military), the rest of the world could go about the peaceful business of building happy proletarian pigsties and communes, and dancing their colourful native dances in tune with mother nature and the elements.
But the Eurie governments, despite their peoples’ clear distaste (loathing, repulsion, horrified nausea) just keep quietly working with us, buying our weapons, investing in our industries, bribing our officials, pet warlords, and clients, and forwarding intelligence, while transporting innocent Arab detainees to overseas CIA torture dens.
Heck, NATO is the biggest "secret" around. Membership allows a whole bunch of rinky-tink European liberal democracies to do jacksh*t about their own security, while silently relying on the big bad US, and publicly disdaining us and lamenting that that bunch of filthy transportees ever became independent.
Oh, and please remember, everything we did in WWI and since can be entirely discounted – because it was to our benefit, and NOT because we honestly worshipped Europe.
Israel, without the United States, would no doubt also be better. Leastways a neo-socialist workers paradise that would just have to get along with the hardworking aborigines, both peoples in fact exchanging artistic trinkets and hummus recipes instead of barbs and (US-sponsored) bombs.

Yessiree, Bob. Israel should refuse the etnan of F15s, F16s, Vetoes in the UN, diplomatic protection when invading neighbours, $3 billion a year in military aid, $2 billion a year in further grants.

Which Arab military technology? The one they bought from Germany, France, USA, Great Britain or any other of Israel's proud allies and partners?

Being anti-Israel is the new anti-Semitism.
