Why should I foot the bill for giving Israel a $3 Billion dollar REWARD for 43 years of violating the Fourth Geneva Convention and defying the UN? Since when does rewarding a rouge state with billions of dollars in weapons serve to curb their behavior? This is like Chamberlain going to appease you-know-who. It is OUTRAGEOUS Simply, absolutely OUTRAGEOUS. In 90 days, Israel will go right back to stealing land and building illegal settlements. Worse, they will now have stealth fighters with which to go start a war with Iran that America will have to finish (hasn't that been Israel's plan all along?). I voted for Obama, and even flew to D.C. for his inauguration, but this is a deal breaker. Israel delegitimizes itself.
