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.


US Aid to Israel and the Palestinians

Do you think we should give Palestinians military aid?

If the US is giving them funds that require no accounting for it, don't you think that at least part of it is already being used for military purposes?

Makes you wonder what's up with the people that keep returning him to office.

No wonder they elected a mental lightweight like Obama and now want a woman with senile dementia to be POTUS. Is everyone in DC cognitively challenged? Do they have their own Special Olympics?

The mental lightweight defeated the two candidates that you voted for (and you did vote for them...McCain AND Romney). So, what does that make your candidates?

not really, but I am biased. not going to lie about that.

mostly because within the PA, there is 0 accountability of where that $ goes. and since Abbas pays off terrorist families via a "pension", I would hate to think our tax dollars support that.
