Who Threw Israel Under the Bus

"Despite the Republican Party's shrill campaign rhetoric on Israel, no Democratic president has ever strong-armed Israel on any key national security issue. In the 1956 Suez Crisis, it was a Republican, Dwight D. Eisenhower, who joined the Soviet Union in forcing Israel's founding father, David Ben-Gurion, to withdraw from the Sinai Peninsula after a joint Israeli-British-French attack on Egypt."

Perhaps the worst use ever of "just sayin'", but hey.

No one really wants to throw Israel under the bus. Israel is a very important country.

I'm sure that's true, but apparently all that "apology tour" rhetoric raised some Israeli ire.
