Comparing N.Korea to israeli terrorists...N.Korea while "maybe" a rogue state, (we can't really know) Stays within their borders and does not bully every nation that borders them.
Israel is also FAR from the largest recipient of foreign aid the last few years.
Finally...and really, this keeps coming up. We are legally BOUND to send a billion or so to Israel as we are legally BOUND to send a billion or so to Egypt. BOTH NATIONS GET THIS. Both nations get this in direct connection to each other and out of the same set of agreements and treaties.
If you would like to cut off every Arab nation for aid, I'll be happy to go with cutting off Israel and perhaps it's long past time, TBH.
However...unless we favor the cold blooded murder of 7 MILLION people (the rough population between Israeli Jews and Arab citizens within Israeli borders) then we cut them *BOTH* or we cut NEITHER.
We shouldn't be in that business and damn sure not against allies.
If you don't count the nations that we have attacked and are giving aid to Israel remains near the top of the heap.
The only reason we give aid to Egypt is because of the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt. I have pointed this out time and time again.
I have said many times we should cut off all foreign aid.
With allies like Israel we don't need enemies. Where has our "ally" been during this whole war on terror?

Ahh some of my favorite poster at odd's. Israel was created out of religion because we felt bad for them. That was not the best idea. On top of that they are trying to expand, that is the issue. If they are attacked on the soil that was given to them by the UN so be it. Retaliate, but with they WANT a war with Iran. They want a war with Syria. They are the attack dog that is trying to break it's leash and drag us down, not that we need help. To fight with them because they know they are out numbered. And it is over a little part of land that they want and have no right too.
Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu would like to see the al-Qaeda spin-off ISIS attack Iran in a repeat of the Iran-Iraq War, a conflict that lasted eight years and cost Iraq 500,000 lives and Iran more than 750,000.
Netanyahu told the United States to stay out of the fight currently developing in Iraq and allow both sides to annihilate each other. “Don’t strengthen either of them. Weaken both,” he advised.
According to Netanyahu and the Israelis, a comparable or larger death toll resulting from a war between Sunni and Shia Muslims would be preferable to Iran possessing a nuclear weapon.
The United States announced an arms deal with Saudi Arabia on Wednesday worth up to 60 billion dollars that includes advanced fighter jets, helicopters, missiles and other weaponry and equipment, dpa reported.
