Is the US helping Israel too much?

Post by Charles » Sat Aug 20, 2011 7:37 am

Does the US support for Israel makes it enemies of other countries? Is much of the reason that terrorists want to hurt the US due to the US helping of Israel?
Does the US given Israel billions of dollars in direct aid out of the public sector?

What about giving Israel unlimited military hardware, is this true?

Israel's enemies are trying to pressure the US into stopping support for Israel.. Terrorism is a part of that pressure. A tiny country surrounded by enemies would be easy pickings without the US's help.
US aid to Israel is mostly fuel (Muslims won't give them any openly), and military equipment. You could say Israel is our beta tester.
