Would you expect anything else, after all we are the largest arms dealer in the world.
Besides at this point work is work.
As long as they use them on each other why should I care anymore. Isreal has the right to defend itself, beside I always believed they had devine intervention, what happened God stopped protecting the Jews.   

Good to see you back!

Well we have strategic advantages that we need to maintain. If we sell the technology that increases the likelihood of that tech falling into enemy hands.

Also there is the issue that Israel may not always be operating in the best interests of the U.S., nor should they be. So if they decided to start using these weapons on their neighbors, the region would destabilize, oil prices would go through the roof, and our economy would become even more messed up than it is now. All of these actions impact the entire planet so I don't think even if they 'just use them on each other' it still impacts us. I wish it weren't the case.
With out the USA Isreal does not survive. Until they recieved nuclear weapons from us.
If you want this pronlem resolved than move the United Nations to Isreal and see how fast this problem is solved. Anything can destabilize oil prices today.

They wouldn't survived in the past without our help for certain. Now, depending on however many weapons they have from us I don't know if they would lose a conventional (non-nuclear) war or not. But yes, Israel is very dependent on the US. Not all destabilizations are equivalent of course.

What do you mean about moving the UN to Israel?

Well, looking back on it, these might be used in the next few weeks. Maybe the Obama administration is more willing to cooperate than we think? There was only one purpose for these bombs.

Well...depends how big the mountain is  ;)

No one will really know how effective they are until the bombs start a-droppin I guess.

US Joint Chiefs and Gates doubted they would be effective. Which is why the Worm was sent in with Centrifuges and Puters.
