Would the war on terror end if America bombed Israel?

I know it's unlikely that this would ever happen, but think about it. We'd instantly become best friends with every single country in the Middle East. Islamists, Arabs, Muslims, Sunni, Shia, blah blah blah - all the religious and ethnic groups in the region would be completely in love with us. They'd probably give us all the oil we want for as long as we want it.

I don't advocate this, of course, just thinking out loud. Seems in many ways our curious allegiance to Israel hurts us more than it helps. If we weren't in their back pocket (and they in ours), we could take the 3 BILLION dollars a year that we GIVE them for no good reason and do something nice here at home - like get some new curtains, cure cancer, or teach little Johnny to fucking read.
