    1) Israel received approx. $ 106 billion in foreign aid from the US...of that total, $3 billion/year is in the form of military aid which is spent in the US...BUT, the $30 billion in economic grants, and $1.5 billion in immigration grants were certainly NOT spent in the US...2) you say, "the US needs Israel more than the reverse"...you speak that noise but a simple map recon proves that Israel is a small country, surrounded on 3 sides by unfriendly nations, and a simple perusal of the last 7 days of Haaretz will let you know that it's Israel (Ronald Lauder)not the US that's asking for committments to defense...3) foreign aid to Egypt, Pakistan and others is not relevant here Mr. Ross...you're the only one claiming to be all alone and Israel IS STILL getting that $3 Bil/year...4) you say that US foreign aid didn't start until 1967???check the numbers on the Jewish Virtual Library ...1949=$100 Million...5) as you said...get your facts right.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
