    I think after reading these numbers that Israel needs to be on their own and United States full support needs to cease immediately. They are totally capable to take care of theirselves independently. American Taxpayers need to keep their money fluctuating in the States here and not over in Israel. Anyone agree?

    Look at these figures:

    What is it? Is everyone afraid they will be branded a anti-semite if they complain about the numbers?

    I doubt this includes private donations by American Christians and Jews. It surely doesn't include the billions Bernie Madoff imbezelled and sent to Israel. I don't believe there is any way to calculate the economic cost to the U.S. of propping up Israel since 1947.

    I understand the foreign aid. It's really just a polically correct way of proping up a military ally. Anyone else notice how quickly foreign aid to the Philipines disappeared when they made us abandon our bases there

    Not by strength of by might, but by my spirit. Sooner rather than later, Israel is going to have no option except to rely on God.

    You do realize that the military portion of that gets spent on weapons made here, right?

    I personally am all for the Israelis tellign the U.S. to stick it so they can go act like any other nation and take care of their own problems.

    How much does the U.S. get back in intelligence from the region and also reports on how their military hardware performs?
