Should We Stop Aid to Israel

Alison Weir asks and answers this question.

When all are added together, it turns out that for many years over half of all US tax money abroad has been expended to benefit a country [Israel] the size of New Jersey.

It is certainly time to begin debating this disbursement of our hard-earned money. It is quite possible that we have better uses for it.

To decide whether the US should continue military aid to any nation, it is essential to examine the nature and history of the recipient nation, how it has used our military aid in the past, whether these uses are in accord with our values, and whether they benefit the American taxpayers who are putting up the money.

She follows up with some very good analysis here.

I entirely agree that "Aid" to Israel should be ended.

But unfortunately, the Jewish - Israel - Zionist Lobby has such a tight control over business, economy and the media, etc., that we cannot even openly voice our opinions.

So much for "Democracy"...
