It is of my opinion that the US is hated by the Muslim world because of our support for Israel. Now, here we go again, giving the Israelis a very
large sum of money, even though they have one of the best economies in the world.
Don't we have better things to spend our hard-earned tax-dollars on? Right here, in my own school district, they are debating on what programs to
shut down from my own child's school. Will it be PE or the sports program or maybe even the science club because there isn't enough money, yet we
seem to have enough money to send Israel extremely large sums of money, in the billions (with a "B"). We also have enough money to hand-out to
already wealthy bankers and Wall Street bafoons. How about we let Israel pay their own way through life and we use our hard-earned tax-dollars on the
things that WE need, such as schooling for our children or even the pot hole down the street that has been there for well over a year.
I'm sick and tired of pulling the weight for Israel when our own weight isn't even being pulled. It would be much better if Israel wasn't using
this money and military support to instigate conflict with the Palestinians and others but even still, I would not support handing them over so much
money and military support. Their use of this support only adds salt to the already gaping wound. My labor and tax money is being used to further
violence against people that have done no harm to me, many of them women and children, for the sole benefit of another nation. What a shame!
Just my 2 cents.
