    and east jerusalem expansions... both of which completely violate u.s. policy. and THAT's just the money that made it there... tack on another 25-30%(or more), for administrative and fundraising expenses, and the total amount is a helluva lot more. and it really doesn't matter WHAT the funds are being used for in the settlements. synogogue, daycare, school, medical clinics, yeshiva...they're ALL a part of the same entity, to which the united states is opposed. someone needs to light a fire under the irs! these so-called "charities" should not only have their tax exempt status permanantly revoked, they should also be investigated regarding the beneficiaries of the funds they're raising. some of them may very well warrant prosecution and the freezing of assets. and i proffer a personal thank you to akiva for revisiting these issue in haaretz. it really does need more media attention.
