still doesn't make it right. someone this STUPID has no business voting on laws in this country.

another fine example is Charles Rangel. The guy is a proven tax cheat and should be in prison. but no, he keeps getting voted in by the numbnuts in Harlem. guy is almost 100 yrs old.

It would behoove many to realize that discussion on Israel is multi-dimensional.


Get outta here with your logic and rationality!









Having said that, Hank is an idiot of the highest magnitude.

U.S. Military Aid and the Israel/Palestine Conflict

The U.S. provides Israel $10.2 million* in military aid each day,
while it gives the Palestinians $0** in military aid.

The settlers ARE mostly Americans. The settlements are paid for by American citizens. The US budget has a line item somewhere that allocates over $100 Million (outside of the Treaty) yearly towards settlements under the line for supplemental disbursements. The housing is heavily discounted for this reason compared to the rest of Israel due to these funds.

Why don't take the time to research how many of these area's are JNF purchases that date back to before the creation of Israel. Also while you are there you can research how many Jewish towns were bulldozed after the 1949 Armistice.

US Aid to Israel and the Palestinians

Let's try that again:

Quote:
Washington also provides aid to Palestine totaling, on average, $875 million annually in Obama's first term (more than double what George W. Bush gave in his second term). That's a little more than a quarter of what Israel gets...
How the US Is Bankrolling Israel | Mother Jones

There is no accounting in place for what Palestinians do with their funding.

US Aid to Israel and the Palestinians

it's amazing how many people fall for propaganda websites and their lies. Just because it has a .org at the end of it doesn't make it fact.

for actual FACTS, go to a .gov site

Explore | ForeignAssistance.gov

$3.1B, not $30B. as someone earlier suggested.

this map also shows the $ US provides Palestinians. stop lying
