Mansoor Akbar Kundi America and Israel enjoy close bilateralism about which the former US President Carter regarded as "a special relationship." According to him, this relationship has developed since 1948 that particularly groomed after 1967. Clinton endorsed this view by saying: "The US-Israeli relationship would never vary from its allegiance to the shared values, shared religious heritage, and shared democratic politics which has made it special." The emergence of Israel was the achievement of the Zionist designs that actually received support in the Belfour Declaration long before the World War II. Israel soon became the leading aid as well as nuclear technology recipient country from the US. In Chomsky's words: "Israel is the only country to which American citizens can give tax free contributions, thus imposing on others a subsidy to Israel, in addition to the direct official aid and loans." The US provided all possible material support to Israel in the development of its nuclear device in 1966. Israel was the sixth nation in the world and the first in the ME to develop and acquire nuclear weapons. The fact has well been supported in the recent book by Wesley Clark entitled Winning Modern Wars: Iraq, Terrorism and American Empire. That America had turned a blind eye to the development of nuclear capabilities by Israel. It is only the Jewish lobby that can achieve nuclear capability and no Muslim country. Therefore Pakistan becoming a nuclear state is intolerable for both Israel and US. The US supported the Israeli cause in the UNSC on all-important issues, while the rights of the Palestinians were subjugated at large. American support for Israel since 1948 in international affairs was largely accountable for a drift in the US foreign policy that is also reflected in the United Nations behaviour since 1972. It has been reflective of the unilateral support for Israeli aggression in the Gaza and Palestinian area. During Nixon Administration huge arms supply was made to Israel. It was the beginning of realisation by the US that Israel, besides material and military, needs more diplomatic support inside and outside UN. This fact was revealed by Bush (Sr) who served as US ambassador to UN (1971-73) when the first veto on Israel was used. The resolution was tabled at the request of Syria to debate the Israeli air strike of September 8 on Arab guerrilla bases in Syria and Lebanon. It mobilised an "embittered debate" with a veto end which darted off diplomatic efforts. The debate primarily revolved around the situation in the occupied territories with Israeli atrocities committed against Palestinians, and expansion of Jewish settlement in Gaza. The resolutions were to attract world opinion and international organisations to secure necessary justice against the atrocities Israel committed. In response, US cynically used veto power to shield Israel from international criticism, censure and sanctions. Therefore, the US has always supported Israel as its strategic liability against the Muslim World. The writer is a freelance columnist
