    I am unsure what motivates you to exaggerate US aid to the Palestinians, and others, at the expense of Israel. But I know it's dishonest. Currently the US gives $225 million to Palestine for economic aid. No military aid. US gives $61.5 million in humanitarian aid to Gaza thru USAID, UNRWA and the International Red Cross. Over 30% of all US foreign aid goes to Israel.The US provides $721.7 M to Jordan and $2.2 B to Egypt. US direct aid to Israel is $3 billion a year. That does not include unpaid loans, grants, interest lost on grants, guarantees of Israeli international loans, etc. With everything, the US has provided Israel $3 trillion of US tax payer money. Probably 90% of all nations give us airspace and landing approval. Israel has NEVER re-armed US armed forces. Thats a lie. Their intelligence is of no help on war on terrorism. We have never used their troops. They mount espionage ops against us, and ignore our requests for peace making steps. It's a very bad investment.
