“For many years, substantial assistance was warranted in recognition of Israel’s peace treaty with Egypt and its need to defend against hostile Arab states. There is a compelling need for the United States’ continued commitment to Israel’s security, which includes the sharing of advanced technologies. But it is worth asking whether the ever-increasing aid levels make sense, especially in the face of America’s other pressing domestic and overseas obligations.”
$38 Billion over 10 years in military aid to Israel is over the top. I’ve lost track, what is in it for us? Since our governments disagree about their policy of building illegal settlements in Palestinian lands, we should stop all aid to Israel, until they actually give peace a chance.
