    And why is this a surprise? Israelis actions are no more than Nazism disguised in Jewish clothing! Peace is not on the Agenda of Israel. By promoting wars and apartheid, they seek to keep the world focused on them: we’re doing this in self-defense. If peace was to “break-out,” Israel will most likely stop receiving the annual U.S. aid it currently receives.

    Since 1949 the U.S. has given Israel a total of $83.205 billion. The interest costs borne by U.S. tax payers on behalf of Israel are $49.937 billion, thus making the total amount of aid given to Israel since 1949 $133.132 billion. This may mean that U.S. government has given more federal aid to the average Israeli citizen in a given year than it has given to the average American citizen.

    For Israel, fueling wars pays!

    ATW,
    No surprises here. I am completely with you on this issue as far as I can tell. I am for complete withdrawal of all military aid to Israel. This will never happen though and is completely off of the radar in the US congress which is comprised of politicians that suck up to AIPAC without exception.
