Israel conveys the image the purpose of the American Jew is to be relieved of his money and shut up. Also, at every turn there seems to be an Israeli leader involved in major scandal and/or disgusting conduct. Also, too many Israelis show up in the US and they too convey the sense of being takers. It is hard to give money to a country filled with very rich people, an imbalance in taxes and one third still living in poverty when it is clear the Israeli population and government is doing not that much to fulfill its obligation to so many of its people. Let some of the billionaires be properly taxed. Let the taxation be less regressive, and, let it become a nation of fewer tax dodgers.
