    1) If pumping money into the US economy is the idea...wouldn't it be better to give the money to Americans and let them spend it in the US??? 2) You spin it to sound like Israel is doing the American taxpayer a favor by accepting his money. Not only is is not a favor...it is a drain on resources that could be used to care for ourselves...basic common sense can be ignored...the economic reality cannot!!!
