I know I mean what has american ever done for them and how exactly did they get nuclear weapons again [ us and France in the main FWIW]
Israel doesn't rely on the US: it accepts whatever support is given and wants that support to continue, but its political and military doctrine is to rely on no-one when the chips are down and when its interests are threatened.
French assistance on the nuclear program ended in 1966; the US was never that influential; most weapons development was endogenous.
I think it was the way British politicians tried to appease certain factions and lobbies deep in the government. Some very successful and clever British Zionists in the right place at the right time.
We had the strength (remember not long after we went on to fight in the Korean war) but it took some brilliant moves back at home to create the birth of Israel.
This is just utter Ross McToss.
For one, it radically overstates the brilliance and amount of thinking that went into British withdrawal from Palestine (clue: they just buggered off), understates the improbability of the Zionists actually being able to win an armed conflict (clue: they were only a third of the population of the mandate, let alone the region), and completely ignores the fact the British had made promises inconsistent with the Balfour Declaration to the Arabs on who would control Palestine (Sykes-Picot letters). If the UK had had a secret brilliant clique of Jewish puppet masters controlling, the FCO wouldn't have been filled with Arabists, the occupying armies wouldn't have spent so much time ineffectually trying to shut down Jewish armed groups and boats filled with holocaust survivors like the SS Exodus wouldn't have been turned back from the Palestinian shore and their occupants put in camps.
And I seem to recall the Korean War wasn't a great success for the British...
