Israel admits it spied on US — Taken from BBC news

I thought this is interesting because we always thought that Israel and US have open relations, apparanetly not for Israel.

This news and other bring me to the question who i still don’t have a satisfying answer for: Why the US is allied with Israel? what the US gain of the alliance? I see what Israel gains, but i don’t see what the US gains. The only half an answer I can think of, is because the Jewish lobbies in US spressuring it to stay an ally, otherwise i can’t see any good reason.
what is a lobby? Check this in wikiedia.org

Here is the BBC news:
