    There is a grasping Israei hand in the pocket of every American tax payer. There is a whole generation of Americans that has had that hand in their pocket all their lives. This money from the American taxpayer is used to subsidize and fund illegal Israeli settlements in the west bank. Israelis will say that this American money is used only to buy them weapons. This is not exactly true. Since America gives Israel more than three billion a year "for weapons", Israel is able to divert that amount that they would normally spend on weaopns and give it to settlement expansion. America is funding the killing of innocent civilians by the IDF. America is supporting Israels avoidance of peace. America is even paying to repair the damage which Israel does to the Arab homes and infrastructure. Every time Americans turn around, there is Israel, hans open, demanding more money, concessions, and political support. We even pay the Israelis to do things that they would do anyway, since they are in Israels own interest. Israelis have developed a sense of entitlement to part of the pay check of every American. American politicians are complicit in this arrangement. The whole relationship between Israel and the American congress needs a good house cleaning.. The sooner the better.
