US Might Sanction Israel

I've Been Thinking:
I watched George Mitchell on Charlie Rose the other night.
I thought I heard Mitchell talk about sanctions against Israel in order to move them out of their deadlock with the Palestinians, I assumed I was dreaming.
I looked up the transcript - I wasn't dreaming.
Here is the exact quote:
Later on in the transcript Mitchell talks about how George W. Bush held back loans until Israeli policy came into line with US expectations.
Mitchell is not simply a former judge and a former senator.
Withholding loan guarantees is tantamount to instituting sanctions.
I do not see the United States instituting a policy of sanctions against Israel at a time when Israel's intel on terror and Israel's military are the only real weight the United States has as leverage against Iran.
