    Silvienne #24 of the USA asks "can we keep our money, too?" Absolutely yes, Silvienne, with pleasure. So many Americans and Israelis are unaware of the fact that the money that the 94% ($2.34B) of the USA foreign aid that Israel gets ($2.50B, as of 2007) must be returned as weapons purchases. The balance amounts to $23 per Israeli citizen per year, about 6 cents per day, which is a poor price for selling one's independence, I think. And for you, Silvienne, the cost to you is 52 cents per year per US citizen. Keep it.
