United States Aid to Israel: Funding the Occupation

Israel is a funded state. Despite its own relatively healthy economy, it continues to receive aid from the US, in disproportion to both the country's population and needs.

The financial aid alone that Israel receives from the US allows it to purchase tanks, helicopter gunships, F-16 war planes, machine guns and bullets - all of which it uses to commit human rights violations against the Palestinian people on a daily basis. When it is not possible for the Israeli government to use the funds directly on military expenditure, their use elsewhere frees up other Israeli government funds to pay for military salaries, services and facilities.
This link shows how much we give to Palestine and how much to Israel

185 Palestinian schools* have been shelled or fired upon by Israelis and 2 Israeli schools** have been fired upon by Palestinians since September 29, 2000

the United Stated, with their tax dollars, supports fatal military attacks on innocent civilians and children in Palestine. It doesn't matter who they want to hurt ultimately. The fact is they are killing innocents.

We are guilty, we are culpable. In the same measure Palestinians and terrorists be damned for their murderous acts, we are responsible for taking innocent lives and perpetuating violence.

Do your own research.

Just so you're clear, oatmeal, this is not "seeing both sides." It's seeing one side.

Israelis agree, btw, that they receive far too much aid from the US, and it's official gov't policy to start the weaning process ... ending the current war would help that, wouldn't it.

Oh, and if you'd like, I can produce links for analyses of the financial situation from organizations partisan in the other direction ... as your link most certainly is a partisan organization, so why should my links be any less reliable?

The facts are whatever you want them to be, right?

Just curious? What makes this WRMEA a partisan group?

I looked around the site to find out who they were and did not get that impression.

The fact is, that the US is monkeying around in the whole ME far too much and it will come back to haunt us.................
