    (Excerpt)

    While it is commonly reported that Israel officially receives some $3 billion every year in the form of economic aid from the U.S. government, this figure is just the tip of the iceberg. There are many billions of dollars more in hidden costs and economic losses lurking beneath the surface. A recently published economic analysis has concluded that U.S. support for the state of Israel has cost American taxpayers nearly $3 trillion ($3 million millions) in 2002 dollars.

    "The Costs to American Taxpayers of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: $3 Trillion" is a summary of economic research done by Thomas R. Stauffer. Stauffer's summary of the research was published in the June 2003 issue of The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.

    Stauffer is a Washington, D.C.-based engineer and economist who writes and teaches about the economics of energy and the Middle East. Stauffer has taught at Harvard University and Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. Stauffer's findings were first presented at an October 2002 conference sponsored by the U.S. Army College and the University of Maine.

    Interesting stuff and more believable than the 3 billion figure.

    OMG!!!


    Seems we should be helping one of our only true allies in the region.


    But the Jew-haters on this board would rather we help terrorist supporters.

    Wait! It did not calculate in the damage the forty years of war did to Arab militaries saving us the trouble in Desert Storm 1 and 2.

    Also needs to figure in how instead of battling in Tours France modern Muslims are battling back in the med thanks to our strategic olacement of Israel.

    Then there are the costs of all the US coffins Israel has saved us. Yup, coffins. Why you ask? It was Israeli boys dying fighting some crazed Muslims not ours.

    BACK THE FUCK UP!


    Nobody should be getting aid $$$ unless we get results!
    And we are in debt in the first place.

    How much do we send to Pakistan? They don't even allow our troops in their country, they harbor terrorists, and they throw tantrums when we killed bin laden.
    Afghanistan is a lost cause. None of them care about the country and a government wouldn't work due to Islam culture. We would be better off setting up a dictatorship over there to keep them in order and as an ally who will destroy terrorists.
    Libya, we just need to go in there and kill the leader and get it over with!!!!
    We remove the current leader, set up another leader/government, have a new ally, and get out.

    FYI most of that money never leaves this country.

    It goes into an account for Isreal to buy American military technology.
