Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This chart shows US aid to Israel:

Imagine if the $2+ billion per year was used for humanitarian purposes instead.

Paying some sort redress to displaced persons isn't that much of financial burden when seen in this context.

Shouldnt this chart go back a couple more years, as individual years, to where Bush I actually withheld aid to Israel, and actually got some level of reasonableness out of them? Now it's worked before, so why not try it again?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
