" Israel has a flourishing economy. Paid for (largely) by US tax dollars" Sorry to burst your ignornt bubble. US aid is about 2% of Israel's GNP. With Israel the largest hitech center outside of the US (quite an achievement, wouldn't you say)and the brain center of numerous well known companies it is doing very well thank you. Just last month an Israeli company (yes, one) was bought out for a sum larger than US annual aid. Hatred makes some people ifnorant and even worse, stupid.
