Since when does the United States provide direct financial support to 'elite' IDF units ? Does the US directly support the building of the illegal settlements?. The answer to both is no because if she did the US would be in breach of international law. translation: the large sums of monies which the US transfers to Israel yearly enter one big pocket and are shifted to many other pockets in a process that basically launders the monies as to lose track of where it goes. Israel never gives the US full account of where the monies are ultimately spent. If the good senator wants to do all of us a favor , he needs to cut all the US grants to Israel significantly. Id Israel has money to build hundreds and thousands housing units in the West Bank, it needs and most definitely deserves no financial support whatsoever from the US.
