Israel has been, since its modern inception, a parasite on the United States treasury. The United States never had enemies in that part of the world until the United States financed and equipped Israeli killing and displacing of Palestinian Arabs. We have seen innocent non-combatants massacred even after protection was offered by the U.S. government. Palestinians were offered large tracts of desolate, dry desert. Israel repeatedly has violated treaties with the U.S. They have killed American seamen.
Many fanatic fundamentalists suggest we “stick with Israel.” They claim dispensation of God. Whose God? What reliably supports this claim? Was it an Old Testament God displayed in Old Testament that approved murder and genocide? Was this, in fact early war propaganda? Was it designed to approve atrocity?
Our nation, the USA, is in a great budget deficit. Programs such as Medicare and Social Security are threatened. Despite that, our congressman, Bill Huizenga, supports continued sending of billions of tax dollars to Israel. In effect, we are borrowing from China and Japan to send huge sums of money to Israel, to earn us the enmity of millions. It is time our country serves justice and American values by cutting free from Israel.
