U.S., Israel on collision course over settlements


www.reuters.com

The Israeli government's plan to approve more construction in Jewish settlements drew a sharp rebuke from the Obama administration on Friday, further complicating U.S. efforts to revive Middle East peace talks.


"As the president has said before, the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued settlement expansion and we urge that it stop.

Israel is already building some 2,500 housing units at West Bank settlements that are in various stages of construction.

We can't afford the billions a year we give them and now that we are telling them to do something, we are on a collision course.

Maybe we need to take a backseat, worry about ourselves, and let the rest of the world progress without us molding the clay.

Before someone comes in here and says that the US should stay out of Israels business I have to say this:

We have every right to make this demand, as long as my tax payer dollars are gong to them in the billions every year then they should listen to daddy. Until they start supporting themselves and get there own roof over there head.

Just think of all the healthcare those billions could be used for on the America people. The healthcare issue now would be a non-issue.

So... ya... use the money for universal healthcare instead of Israel.

Of course, that's probably why Israel doesn't like Obama's universal healthcare plan... it would take money away from Israel. And, we see Israelis lobby against Americans to say the reform is bad... they say "you want it, pay for it"... yet that is what is already been doing... U.S. already have paid for universal healthcare... it just is being done in Israel.

Where else does the money go?
