We give them money because we are an empire who wants control over everything. I think Israel would be better off to not accept American money and America would do better to spend else where. If Israel stop giving money to people who wanted to read the Torah all day the could fund iron done on there own. I do think America should SELL Israel its most advanced equipment immediately as Israel is a true friend.
