IOZ is spot on:

Congress is declaring, once again, its eternal and unending support for Israel to do fuck-all whatever it pleases. Why why why? The answer is that the anti-Arab/Muslim forces in America have successfully deployed a curious American contradiction, which is our national Cult of the Holocaust, which has become the central fetish for our moral pornography, even as Jews become ever-more-thoroughly mainstreamed.

This gets to the heart of this cultural bond between the US and Israel (or rather, the US' identification with Israel as a national appendage). The larger question is, why did this identification occur?
