    Whatever they give we should make certain that the debt for that gift is paid off by taxpayers within a year. No more giving money away from the bank account of future Americans not even born.

    Do you honestly believe we can earn God's favor by giving money to Israel?

    I'm a strong Israeli supporter, but honestly with the debt the US has if anything the "aid" we give should be in the form of loans to be payed back, we can't afford to just give out free taxpayer money.

    The $30 Billion in increased military aid in 10 years just wasnt enough?

    I see it as supporting them to avoid God's wrath.

    But not one of those stories mentions the sale of US weapons technology to China. They simply deal with Isareli weapons sales (of their own domestically built and designed weapons) to China, none of which actually went through.

    I think the question should read as STATE of Israel. some people consider the LAND of Israel to be one thing and the STATE of Israel another.There are peeps who support Israel but not the state.

    12 Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.

    Deuteronomy 14:9-10 says:
    9 These ye shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:
    10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it is unclean unto you.

    That being said... it's high time for a much fatter line drawn between church and state. It's hard to govern with people acting so heavenly minded they are no earthly good.
