America first

Our government, under President Obama, has put the economic welfare of Israel above the safety of U.S. citizens by rescinding the order that U.S. planes could not fly into Israel. If safety was the reason for that order, then conditions have not changed overnight to make flights less dangerous.

What has changed is that Israel whined about the economic loss because of the stoppage of flights, and our government backed down. Wouldn’t it be nice if Americans came first?
