    How many US taxpayer dollars are given to Egypt each year?

    How many US taxpayer dollars are given to Israel each year? I guess it is significantly more than Egypt, and even more than some states in the USA.
    (trick question since even the US government doesn't really know for sure.)

    The bottom line is the US government warned Egypt to help defuse the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Pretty stern rhetoric. YET, when Israel pulls shit like kicking Palestinians off their own land, putting up walls to segregate a people, starving people with blockades, etc, you never hear Washington (with any of the dopes who lead) tell Israel to back off or lose funding. Do you?:confused:

    It is no wonder that so many countries don't trust the US because of its sheltering of Israel's terrorism. Why don't other countries fund Israel if it is so worthy of a cause?

    Yeah, while Muslims are making jerks of themselves worldwide Palestinians are going to have a difficult time winning any favors. Enemy of my enemy type of thing.

    That whole anti semetic thing in the US was an embarrassment too and we are probably signed up to side with Israel forever because of that also.
