Our convenient Middle East client state

Israel: US Foreign Assistance, Congressional Research Service, April 26, 2005:

“Israel is not economically self-sufficient, and relies on foreign assistance and borrowing to maintain its economy. Since 1985, the United States has provided $3 billion in grants annually to Israel. Since 1976, Israel has been the largest annual recipient of US foreign assistance, and is the largest cumulative recipient since World War II. In addition to US assistance, it is estimated that Israel receives about $1 billion annually through philanthropy, an equal amount through and short and long term commercial loans, and around $1 billion in Israel Bonds proceeds.”

The sooner more American people are made aware of this insane “investment”, the geography of the Middle East may undergo a radical realignment.
