What is the responsibility and/or obligation
of the United States to sustain the existence
of Israel as a Jewish state.  If there is either
or both, at what cost?

The US should have no obligation I can see, though it acts as if it does.

Personally I think that if Israel stands or falls it should be by its own endeavours and merits, not because of some simple misguided belief or whim of a superpower that believes that it should exist.

The debate about Israel's right to exist. is ultimately pointless. The justification for Israel  is simply that it exists. The Jews are there and they are not going anywhere. Whatever the injustices that went into its creation, the wrongs of yesteryear cannot be righted without doing further injustice. The Jews are there, Israel does exist.  The Palestinians are going to have to accept that

The United States will sustain Israel at any cost, that is a done deal. The reasons are legion ...............

That was decided when the first tanker left the Persian Gulf .

“What is happening on the U.S. campuses is not about supporting the Palestinians as much as it is about promoting hatred for the Jewish state. It is not really about ending the “occupation” as much as it is about ending the existence of Israel. “

As a sovereign State it already exists, no question.  Does Palestine exist (as a State), has it ever?
