  • Israel is surrounded by enemies and gets attacked every single day, so yes, they need as much help as they can get until the muslims can get their shit together.

      republicans tax cuts for billionaires, tax breaks and subsidies for big oil, and increase the already overblown military budget, fuck them. democrats are bad enough too, both parties are corporate parties.

  • They are an important ally to us. If they do not have the money and cannot do what they must to defend themselves then we might lose them.

  • Politics are complicated, but in the end there's really nothing the average people like you and me can actually do since we're just average citizens under their authority and they completely call all the shots and they just do whatever the fuck they really want even if you do not agree with it, or even if what they do will be bad for us regular taxpaying folks and even if they fucked us over as we have no control over what they want to do.

  • I'm very much against it. While America pretends to be the good guy in international politics, all the US ever does in reality is fuck things up more by helping all the wrong people, be it cruel dictators, islamist terrorists or a pseudo-democratic Jewish state that gives a fuck about human rights and international agreements.

  • If you listened to the very short video it describes the deal quite clearly. We already had a deal with Israel for 31 billion (worth of military aid) over a 10 year period, now there's another deal of 38 billion over 10 year period. Of which Israel is using pretty much all of it on buying American weaponry. So it's more like the US giving Israel weapons for the next 10 years to assist them in the constant conflict going on in the Middle East. Israel is a U. S. ally. I support the U. S. helping our allies. The deal isn't unreasonable.

    But... we're not really in a good financial situation right now. I'm concerned about how we'llbe able to afford it. I'm all for the deal however. You're supposed to look out for your friends.

  • What's your opinion with USA donating $38 billion to Israel for military aid?

    Once the money leaves my checkbook and lands into the US Treasury, I am pretty much out of control for how it gets spent. They can give it away, use it for beer and drugs, makes no difference to me. I paid my tax. I don't have to account for the poor decisions others make with my tax money. I know I elected them, but they have a job to do just as I do. If they chose to piss away our future, then let them, or fight them.

    Just my opinion

  • The issue with foreign aid is that it's not aid, it's a tool of imperialism. Those who complain about this issue really don't understand it. Foreign aid must be used in very specific way, and the products purchased must be both approved and from approved (US) vendors and force a country to use US tax payer money to support certain US businesses.

      So aid them 38 billion while not supporting their own citizens enough? America seems to support Israel more than America itself. And Israel may also hate everyone who they are surrounded by too so it may not be one sounded like you say.

  • the US works for "israel" and they don't need any money to defend themselves from children with rocks. "israel" is disgusting and so are those that support it. it's an occupying, fraud, terrorist state with the worst bigotry, apartheid and is in its 70th year of ongoing genocide. No nation has violated more UN resolutions than "israel" BOO "israel".

      @Omar5881 To be honest I don't know much about Egypt. Want to visit at some point but I only know about the accords because they were recently under suspension.

      It doesn't surprise me much if it's not all American. With modern equipment a billion doesn't buy much these days. I think one of ours our craft carriers we're building is about £7 billion. I'd be worried about sending it anywhere.

  • We don't need to be giving monetary aid to anybody, quite frankly. It's a waste of our tax money and serves as a means for US officials to stick their hands in other nations' affairs. "Free" money always comes with strings attached.
