“No one is arming Israel. You could make some argument that US aid helps, but it is a small fraction of Israel’s GDP. Israel is perfectly capable of arming itself.”
C’mon, now, that’s not true. We are arming Israel at taxpayer expense. We supply them with weapons, missles, etc. This military aid is on top of the yearly aid we send there.
If Israel was capable of arming itself and not needing the cash, they would cease to accept it from their “greatest ally”.
You and I have had ove this before. If we Jews are incapable of supporting a Jewish state, why should it fall on a majority Christian nation, a nation that’s currently suffering a HUGE financial crisis. If Israel didn’t need the yearly aid, wouldn’t the moral thing be to tell the U.S. to halt it, at least until the country is out of financial crisis?
