Sure, they'll spew rhetoric and posture as sycophantic defenders of the Jewish homeland, but when push comes to shove they've shown time and time again that they support an idealized Israel that does not exist, and want nothing to do with the actual nation. Turns out the real Israel took after France a bit too much for their tastes. They're not about to endorse fighting for a nation which might actually dare to weigh their 'liberation' against the alternatives, especially after they got burned on Iraq. This is especially true now that they've taken Al Gore's debt-reducing lock box to heart (only a decade and a few trillions too late) and would attack Obama if Obama dared attack the Palestinians in response to the rockets. Like all good Chickenhawks they talk a good game, but are happiest to have anyone else, in this case the IDF, do their fighting for them.
That, and there is of course the fact that for many their support of Israel exists only to provide a plausible cover for their intense, self-proclaimed genocidally anti-Islamic stance.
