In effect, Obama had nothing to do with it - unless he voted for it while he was in the Senate. It would be interesting to know if he actually voted in favour of this aid package.

    Netanyahu is a pig and a war criminal, IMO (and you Neo-con/anti-Palestinians who disagree? Save it as I could care less what you people think about this subject).

    Although Obama has been disappointing in his dealing's with Israel...compared to GWB, he has been very refreshing (Bush did almost anything Israel wanted).

    But, but, playing the race card is off limits to the liberals. Got a little bit of double standard there do we?

    The fact is that Israel could Nuke anyone of those country's of the face of the Earth.

    You mean like the Palistineans and their third world weapons? God were they ever a threat to a country that has all the modern weapons.

    That's true, but they haven't done so and won't... Do you think Israel would still exist if the Palestinians had nuclear weapons?

    I hear this rational all the time and let me say it's very flimsy.

    First off, there are several other countries that are encompassed by their regional enemies that could use the aid - both financial and militarily - of the world's riches and most powerful nation, but because we've called Israel an ally since the Truman era and we, as a nation, more closely ally ourselves with Christian nations moreso than nations that follow any other religion, peaceful or otherwise, it's real easy to fall back on "moral alignments among allies" than it is to just do the right thing for any nation or group of people who are being oppressed or otherwise slaughtered by a singular dictator or tyrannical terrorist group.

    Second, it's hypercritical on its face to say "it's okay to spend billions to help Israel defend itself" yet denounce federal foreign aid spending not for bombs or missiles (i.e., Israel's Iron Shield) but for food, water and medicine for people in need.

    You guys really crack me up!

    I'm a long way from saying let Israel, an ally, defend itself. But I also believe that sending foreign aid to lesser capable nations who are being much more oppressed by tyrants is also the right thing to do.
