    but its the aid to Israel that gets the hate. I wonder why.
    We shouldn't be spending none of it. I shouldn't have to support the people of the world, they can get their own dinner.

    he has posted more than a few anti-Semitic articles and linked to anti-Semitic websites.

    hence the logic in my conclusion

    Obviously you didn’t read the article in the OP…again. Note “The military aid bill sailed through Congress—just two "no" votes in the House of Representatives in May, a voice vote to clear the Senate last week.” So when you claimed ‘Republican-controlled House’ had something to do with this please connect the dots on how…especially considering that the WH and Senate is ‘Democratic-controlled’. Considering it passed the House virtually unanimously and ‘flew’ through the Senate on a VOICE VOTE one has to wonder if there wasn’t collusion between Harry and Barry…

    Passed the house in MAY…MAY…House controlled the schedule…really?

    Dang that kool-aid is effective...

    posting links to anti-Semitic websites doesn't mean anything to you?

    Are you seriously still saying anti-semetic? is that all you got as a rebuttal to truth and facts?

    you have posted no truth or facts, just anti-Semitic links.

    Re: Obama signs Israel military aid bill on eve of Romney visit

    To try and shift the conversation away from whether American children are starving, hungry, or enduring a unique DoH definition of hungry...

    I generally support Israel, and US support for Israel. Without getting into my current frustrations with the Israeli government, as well as our approach towards them, I'll just say I have been a critic of the method in which we allocate aid to Israel. The country has a defense budget of over 50.6 billion NIS, and a national budget of nearly 260 billion NIS. The reliance on free money from the US which has invariably amounted to about 4-11 billion NIS has led to an avoidance of fiscal responsibility and an explosion of worthless and adventurous acquisitions. It is support that has long outlived its usefulness and is now merely used as a gauge of support for Jerusalem. It is about time that Israel begin to seriously prioritize its defense issues, only after that happens and on a circumstantial basis should aid be revisited. That being said I think it makes sense for the US to fund as a whole or in partnership programs like Iron Dome due to the macro implications of such a system, and the spin-off benefits.

    I advocate a 'smart' approach.

    Then Nancy gets one right (or wrong considering on how you look at it) for a change:

    House minority leader Nancy Pelosi said that she believes Republican Jews are "being exploited," but she was sure to add, "And they're smart people."
