    Firstly, I'm glad US aids Israel. May the aid continue forever. Secondly, the international sanctions against the Palestinians bring to light the fact that the Palestinains get millions in handouts as well - so those who support the Palestinians and who for decades bemoned US support to Israel have nothing to cry about. The Palestinins get western aid as well. We see that they can't even pay their government staff without it. And if they are so upset by US aid to Israel why don't they petition oil-rich Arab states who give the Palestinians practically nothing.
