    RiDC: "The common focus is on US military aid to Israel, and all the complaints follow in due course. Yet where are the complaints about US military aid going to Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinians, or Lebanon which, together, exceed what Israel gets?" Because they ALL use that aid money in the manner in which it was intended i.e. to buy US-built military equipment that then gets painted with their national colours. Only Israel argues that it should be allowed to siphon off hundreds of millions of (USA taxpayer-funded) dollars in order to fund their own R&D to provide "solutions" for their own "unique requirements". It's the difference between 1) US military aid money being used to prop up the US defense industries 2) US military aid money being used to prop up an Israeli defense industry. The Pentagon - not surprisingly - doesn't think much of the latter idea....
