    Please stop American "aid" to Israel, we really don't need it and it just makes us weak. The "aid" we are given has to be spent in the US, providing thousands of jobs for Americans, not Israelis, it cripples Israeli industries, and we are not free to trade without American interference, And whilst you're at it please take YOUR spies out of Israel, and your military bases, and stop the military aid to Egypt and the Palestinians (which is nearly as much as Israel gets). Only America can arm both sides to a conflict and then claim the moral high ground. And as for trust, America has been spying extensively on its allies, and no-one trusts America any more.
