Israel is extraordinarily selfish. If it was really a friend to the US it would actually consider the financial problems that country has and say we want less not more aid from you. Instead it thinks only of itself. Infact a few weeks ago Israel was offered a stepped-up security package in exchange for a 3-month freeze extension - and declined. Now it wants a huge sum for nought. I really do wonder about the intellectual calibre of Israel's ministers and their obvious refusal to understand that the world does not begin and end with Israel.
