Ally and proxy are two very different things.
Right. England is an ally. Not armed and funded by the u.s. ,just follows along whith U.S. wars. The IDF is armed and partially funded  by the U.S.

Really now? Your statement seems to be missing a lot of nuance. FYI, GB also buys a lot of weapons from the US, and Israel also produces a lot of weaponry domestically.

I don't think there is something insulting to accept the fact that the IDF is a proxy army of the U.S. unless you have an issue with כחי ועצם ידי .(which after simchas torah should have been cured) If anything it shows tremendous hashgacha that Hashem put it in the minds of U.S. leaders that they should arm the IDF. Anybody realistic knows that Israel had no capability to fight a war this long without U.S. ammo. (They had to ask for resupply of artillery and  Iron dome missiles in the first week) The fact that some of us get shocked and  annoyed when a (dumb leftist ) U.S. president dares to act in his own interests is a chutzpa.

The news and opinion sections are run as two completely separate newspapers. The news section has always had a leftward tilt but much more so since the war.

From Rav Yisroel Reisman's weekly chumash shiur this past Thursday:

"Don’t fool yourself. This week the government expressed support for Israel. Next week they will criticize Israel. A week later they will sanction Israel. The Umos Ha’olam are not going to be our help. It is only Avinu Sheba’shamayim."
The timeline may be a little slow, but otherwise...

it's not just newspapers that came out like that. Since the war started many people who may had opinions on us kept quiet. Ever since, their mouths never closed...

Biden says the red line for Israel is another 30k dead. You can be sure the Gazan Health Ministry took note of that and will make sure to get there quickly once the Rafah offensive is underway.

But if his red lines are like Obama's red lines... Who cares?
