    I agree with that last part, and it was a canny political move on President Obama's part. However, I',m not so sure the Israelis are all that convinced Obama supports them. Oh, they'll take the aid, and probably give a thank you speech, but I don't believe they are onboard with Obama.

    I don't think there is much Obama can do short of kicking the UN out of New York & declaring his support for all right-wing Israeli demands, that would please many Israelis.

    Eh...

    ...Zionism has ties to Jewish feminism supporting multiculturalism in order to look tolerant. If he has the balls to stand up for the black community against feminism in showing how the decay of family values hasn't helped, then, he could boot Zionism off the Democratic agenda.

    Leave to it a lib to see nothing wrong with taking money someone earned and then give it to someone else who did nothing to earn that money.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Most of the "aid" we give Israel comes in the form of last generation military equipment that we're done with. Our government calculates the value just like the police calculate the "street value" of the drugs they confiscate. Looks better that way.

    Tell that to the American citizens who need the aid to stay on American soil, people are suffering in the U.S., but ofcourse that's not your first country of concern!
